With the increase in the use of lithium-ion batteries in many consumer products, the danger of explosion and their disposal has become very difficult, and thus, it becomes essential to recycle lithium-ion batteries. The recycling of lithium-ion batteries could be done by several technological methods including the hydrometallurgical process, the pyrometallurgical method and other mechanical methods.

The growing applications of lithium-ion batteries in end-use industries including marine, power generation, automotive, among others, and eradication of the toxic effects of metals used in batteries are the major propelling factors market growth.

Growing recycling rate related to lead-acid batteries, emphasis on lithium-ion battery and limited availability of the metal are expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period.

Lithium-ion battery usage is high due to several chemical properties, the growing acceptance of electric vehicles around the world, and government initiatives to financially support electric vehicle buyers and manufacturers in the market. .

However, the high price associated with lithium-ion batteries is expected to hamper the development of lithium-ion battery recycling market. In addition, safety concerns regarding the transportation and storage of batteries are expected to challenge the recycling of lithium-ion batteries during the forecast period.

Lithium Ion Battery Recycling Market, By Region:

There are five regions in the lithium ion battery recycling market. Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing segment during the forecast period, owing to increasing demand from end-use industries such as automotive. In addition, the availability and presence of global brands and their challenges face strong competition from national and local brands.

Impact of COVID-19 on the lithium-ion battery recycling market

The pandemic resulted in a temporary ban on export and import activities and processing and manufacturing activities in several industries, which reduced market demand from non-automotive and automotive end-users. This resulted in a decrease in the growth of the market. On the other hand, the market is expected to recover by the first quarter of 2021 as COVID-19 vaccination has started across the world, which is expected to boost the market economy.

Some of the key developments in the lithium-ion battery recycling market

  • July 2021 – Lohum Cleantech (India), a lithium-ion battery recycling and manufacturing solutions provider, declared its strategic plans to expand its recycling and manufacturing capabilities. The company aims to expand LIB production from 300 MWh to 1 GWh as well as to tenfold recycling capacities from 1,000 tonnes per year (TPA) to 10,000 TPA over the next two years.
  • June 2021 – BASF (Germany) announced that it will begin construction of a new prototype battery recycling plant at the company’s cathodic active materials (CAM) site in Schwarzheide, Germany. This company mainly aims to use the progressive solution and extract manganese, cobalt, nickel and lithium from lithium-ion batteries reaching the exhaustion time.
  • October 2019 – Neometals Ltd. (Australia) signed a memorandum of understanding with German SMS Group GmbH to jointly finance and assess the next stage of growth of its registered lithium-ion battery recycling technology. Once the battery recycling pilot test is complete, the organizations plan to form a 50/50 joint venture to commercialize the technology.
