Lithium-ion Battery Recycling Market by Battery Chemistry (Lithium-nickel Manganese Cobalt, Lithium-iron Phosphate, Lithium-Manganese Oxide, LTO, NCA, LCO), Industry (Automotive, Marine, Industrial, and Power), and Region - Global Forecast to 2030
“The lithium-ion battery recycling market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2025 to 2030, in terms of value.”
The lithium-ion battery recycling market is estimated at USD 1.5 billion in 2019 and projected to grow from USD 12.2 billion in 2025 to USD 18.1 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2025 to 2030. The major reasons for the growth of the battery recycling market include the increasing concerns regarding environmental pollution and the enforcement of stringent environmental regulations across regions to control excessive industrial and air emissions. The Rising concerns about depleting earth metals and government initiatives to recycle batteries are drivers for the battery recycling market globally.
“The automotive segment is projected to lead the lithium-ion battery recycling market in terms of both value and volume from 2025 to 2030.”
Based on end use, the automotive segment accounted for the largest share of the lithium-ion battery recycling market in 2018. Within the industry segment, automotive plays a major role in the contribution of spent lithium-ion batteries for the recycling market due to the high penetration of electrically driven vehicles in the growing economies.
“Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt (Li-NMC) is the largest segment of the lithium-ion battery recycling market, by chemistry type.”
The lithium-nickel manganese cobalt (Li-NMC) segment accounted for the largest share of the lithium-ion battery recycling market in 2018. This large share is mainly attributed to the material being cost-effective and the key functional properties, which make it a preferred material, especially for the automotive industry.
“North America is projected to lead the lithium-ion battery recycling market during the forecast period, in terms of both value and volume.”
The North America region is projected to lead the lithium-ion battery recycling market from 2019 to 2024 in terms of both, value and volume. The presence of major electric vehicle manufacturers in the region such as Tesla, Inc., General Motors Company, and Ford Motor Company, among others, ensures a continuous supply of EVs leading to the accumulation of end-of-life LIBs, thereby propelling the LIB recycling market. Additionally, the presence of more than 1,500 data centers in North America is expected to drive the LIB recycling market in the future.
