Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling Market Introduction and Overview 

According to SPER Market Research, the Global Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling Market is estimated to reach USD 39.06 billion by 2033 with a CAGR of 25%.

The report includes an in-depth analysis of the Global Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling Market, including market size and trends, product mix, applications, and supplier analysis. An electrochemical cell known as a lithium-ion battery (LIB) is composed of electrodes and catalysts in order to allow power generation for a variety of applications. Different precious metals with low reserves and high resale prices are the materials found in the cathode and anode tubes. In order to minimise the overall project cost and the environmental impact, the li-ion battery recycling process is used to recover and sell the raw materials stockpiled in the electrode composition. The market for recycled lithium-ion batteries will expand thanks to these considerations.

  • Umicore unveiled Battery Recycling Solutions in March 2023 as a new business unit in response to the growing market demand. The objective of this calculated action is to take advantage of the industry's explosive growth and position Umicore as a major participant. Umicore is planning to significantly increase its recycling capacity as part of its growth plans. The business intends to build a cutting-edge, 150,000-ton battery recycling facility in Europe by 2026. With the help of this large-scale initiative, Umicore will be able to meet the growing demands for lithium-ion battery recycling and improve its standing in the industry.
  • March 2022: Retriev Technologies has acquired Battery Solutions, forming North America's largest battery management solution. This merger creates a comprehensive recycling offering, establishing a "circular supply chain" for industry and consumers. By integrating their expertise, infrastructure, and services, the company becomes the sole industry player capable of managing all battery types throughout their life cycle. With a strategic national presence, the acquisition reinforces their commitment to the circular economy, addressing the increasing demand for sustainable battery management solutions.
Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling Market
Market Opportunities and Challenges
Battery recycling is becoming increasingly important because of the growing need for lithium-ion batteries in the automotive industry and the increasing popularity of electric vehicles (EVs). Demand for recycling services and technologies is driven by the growing number of electric vehicles (EVs) on the road, which in turn drives up the volume of end-of-life batteries that need to be recycled. Aesthetic battery design, easy battery installation, and the presence of protective layers to reduce the risk of fire and short circuiting are some of the factors that are expected to open up new potential opportunities in the global market. Lithium-ion battery recycling will have favourable opportunities throughout the projected period due to the expansion of recycling infrastructure and the rise in cooperation and partnerships among industry participants.

However, lack of infrastructure for end-of-life battery collection, sorting, and processing is one of the major issues facing the lithium-ion battery recycling sector. Effective and widespread battery recycling is hampered by the scarcity of recycling facilities and, in some areas, the absence of uniform procedures and laws. Additionally, recycling lithium-ion batteries requires intricate and sophisticated procedures to guarantee the safe disposal of hazardous components and recover valuable materials. These procedures can be expensive and call for certain tools and technology. The market's expansion may be hampered by the high startup and running expenses of battery recycling, particularly for small-scale recycling businesses.

COVID-19 Impact on Global Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling Market
The COVID-19 pandemic-related lockdowns led to a temporary prohibition on import and export as well as manufacturing and processing activities across a number of industries. This reduced demand for lithium batteries from both automotive and non-automotive end users. As a result, in 2020's second, third, and fourth quarters, market growth decreased. But by the first quarter of 2021, the market should be back on track because COVID-19 immunisation has begun in a number of countries throughout the world, which should boost the world economy.
