Global Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling Markets 2018-2025: Focus on Technology, Chemistry, End Source, and Regional Analysis -

The "Global Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling Market: Focus on Technology, Chemistry, End Source, and Regional Analysis" report has been added to's offering.

The Global Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling Market analyzed is expected to show healthy growth in the coming years. The market is anticipated to reach 359.6 kilotons by 2025.

The staggering adoption of lithium-ion batteries portrays that it would continue being a prominent source of clean energy at least till the next decade, especially in the electromobility field. Thus, a huge dominance of lithium-ion batteries can be anticipated given the ongoing and anticipated trends.

The surge in the consumption of lithium-ion batteries further emphasize on the disposal of batteries that have reached their end-of-life. Most batteries end up in landfills and become a threat to the environment. The recycling of lithium-ion batteries, therefore, become play a crucial role in developing a closed loop system whereby the recovered materials can be reused in the batteries and help in meeting the rising demand for raw materials in the battery.

The Global Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling Market is at a very niche level when compared with the other batteries such as lead-acid batteries. The government enforcement and market-based incentives for simplifying the designing process of the battery to facilitate easy disassembling are anticipated to play a key role in the recycling industry. A sound infrastructure to promote the collection of dead batteries and innovate technologies for executing the entire recycling process on a large scale are two essential factors that could escalate the recycling rates of lithium-ion batteries.

Expert Quote

The recycling of lithium-ion batteries requires supportive regulations and government-enforced laws to ensure smooth collection and recycling of waste batteries. Recycling of the batteries would help in reducing the overall emission and energy consumption related to the mining of fresh raw materials. In fact, adequate supply of recovered raw materials would help in alleviating the material scarcity and thereby minimize the market price.
