Market Synopsis


Battery recycling is a process that aims to reduce the number of batteries being disposed as municipal solid waste. A battery contains several types of heavy metals and toxic chemicals and disposing of them without proper recycling raises serious environmental pollutions. There are several types of batteries, such as nickel–cadmium (Ni-Cd), nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH), lithium-ion (Li-ion), and nickel-zinc (Ni-Zn), available for electric vehicles. The battery lifespan varies with the battery type, battery capacity, degradation effect, technology innovation, and individual driving and charging behaviors. At present, the average lifespan of a battery is up to 15 years as compared to those batteries sold in year 2010 lifespan ranging from 3 to 8 years. Pyrometallurgy and Hydrometallurgy are the two recycling methods.


The global electric vehicle battery recycling market is estimated to reach USD 3 Billion by 2025 and is projected to witness 19% CAGR during the forecast period. The developing electric vehicle infrastructure in countries, such as China, Germany, South Korea, Japan, and the US, the global increase in production and sales of electric cars, growth in demand for thermal cooling solutions in vehicles, stringent emission and fuel efficiency regulations, and the demand for energy-efficient battery-powered devices are the key factors driving this market. Furthermore, the growing focus to reduce the uses of natural resources for battery manufacturing is likely drive the growth of this market.


The lack of battery recycling infrastructure in emerging market and the high cost to setup recycling plant are the key factors restraining the growth of this market. However, the growing adoption of eco-friendly batteries, developing high-yield processes to recycle next-generation batteries, rise in development of battery supply chain along with recycling networks, and improving economies of developing countries provide growth opportunities to the global markets players to increase the electric vehicle battery recycling market size.
