Lithium-ion Battery Recycling Market worth $35.1 billion by 2031, at a CAGR of 20.6%

Published: April 6, 2024

The report Lithium-ion Battery Recycling Market by Source (Automotive, Non-automotive), Battery Chemistry, Battery Components, Recycling Process (Hydrometallurgical Process, Pyrometallurgy Process, Physical/ Mechanical Process), and Region – Global Forecast to 2031″, is projected to grow from USD 6.5 billion in 2022 to USD 35.1 billion by 2031, at a CAGR of 20.6%. The growing demand for electric vehicles to control the rising 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: Subsidies to encourage battery recycling
Battery recycling is mandatory in North America and Europe. Grants and subsidies are available for battery recycling businesses through development grant programs in some countries in Europe and North America. For instance, in the US, Florida has special project grant funding for which recycling initiatives are eligible; and Texas offers regional solid waste grants for recycling efforts through public-private partnerships. However, such grants and subsidies that make business ventures in this field economically viable are not provided to market players in all regions. In the coming years, provisions to provide grants and subsidies in other regions are expected to provide opportunities for battery recyclers.
