Published: February 11, 2023

The report Lithium-ion Battery Recycling Industry by End Use (Automotive, Non-automotive), Battery Chemistry, Battery Components, Recycling Process (Hydrometallurgical Process, Pyrometallurgy Process, Physical/ Mechanical Process), and Region – Global Forecast to 2030″, The global lithium-ion battery recycling market is projected to grow from USD 4.6 billion in 2021 to USD 22.8 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 19.6% during the forecast period 2021-2030. The rising demand for electric vehicles to control the increasing pollution levels has spurred the consumption of lithium-ion batteries. Since these have lower self-discharge rates than other rechargeable cells such as Ni-Cad and NiMH, they offer high energy and power density and are thus used in various applications, from cellular phones, industrial equipment, to electric-drive vehicles.

Opportunity: Increasing production is expected to lead to a decline in prices of lithium-ion batteries, rising adoption in new applications, and recycling after end-of-life

The prices of lithium-ion batteries have been a major hurdle in acceptance since introduction in the 1990s. A state-of-the-art lithium-ion battery consists of many components which are provided at subsidized costs. However, recent developments and claims made by lithium-ion battery manufacturing companies and automobile companies suggest that the prices of these batteries are expected to decline substantially.

Developments such as manufacture on a large scale, lower component prices, adoption of technologies to boost battery capacity are factors leading to a decline in prices. The declining prices of lithium batteries are expected to lead to the growth of the renewable energy storage market, which are expected to prefer lithium-ion batteries over any other rechargeable batteries. This in turn is expected to lead to an increase in the demand for recycling spent lithium-based batteries.

Lithium-titanate oxide (LTO) battery chemistry is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period

Based on chemistry, the lithium-titanate oxide (LTO) battery chemistry is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2021 and 2030. Lithium-titanate is an off-white powdered compound containing lithium and titanium. The high growth of lithium-titanate oxide (LTO) battery chemistry segment is due to its advantageous features such as stability, power density, long life cycle, and high performance.
