According to Fortune Business Insights, the Lithium Ion Battery Recycling market size is projected to reach USD 6.55 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 18.5%. The global Lithium Ion Battery Recycling market size was USD 1.70 billion in 2020. According to our analysts, market is set to gain momentum from the rising introduction of strict government norms for treating vital materials in battery chemistry.

The COVID-19 pandemic has delayed various operations in a wide range of industries. Government bodies are introducing new rules, such as lockdown and social distancing policies, to curb transmission. The halt of cross-border trade activities would negatively impact the supply chain network. We are offering in-depth insights into this industry to help our clients better understand the current scenario.

The Lithium Ion Battery Recycling Market research report involved four notable activities in projecting the current market size. Exhaustive secondary research was conducted to gather data about the parent and peer markets. Our next step included primary research to authenticate these sizing, assumptions, and findings with numerous industry experts. We have also used bottom-up and top-down methods to calculate the Lithium Ion Battery Recycling industry size.

Increasing Demand for Clean Energy Sources to Boost Growth
People nowadays are rapidly shifting towards clean power sources as they offer efficient input to various applications. Companies worldwide have surged the installation of multiple batteries for numerous electric vehicles and energy storage. This is expected to bolster the replacement of long-standing batteries with low out efficiency generating wastes. Total, for instance, announced its plan to construct a battery-based energy storage project in France in March 2020. Such initiatives are likely to accelerate the Lithium Ion Battery Recycling market growth in the upcoming years. However, the construction of new recycling facilities involves high investments, which, in turn, may hamper the demand for Lithium Ion Battery Recycling services.

Key Players Focus on Partnerships & New Plant Development to Intensify Competition
The global Lithium Ion Battery Recycling Market houses an enormous number of large and small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Some of them are currently striving to compete with their rivals by constructing new Lithium Ion Battery Recycling plants. A few others are participating in partnerships and collaborations to jointly optimize their services. Below are the two latest industry developments:

June 2021 – Germany-based chemicals company, BASF declared to initiate construction of a new battery recycling prototype plant at the company’s Cathode Active Materials (CAM) facility site in Schwarzheide, Germany. The company targets to utilize the advanced solution and extract cobalt, manganese, lithium, and nickel from lithium-ion batteries reaching the exhaustion period.

July 2021 – Canada-based Li-Cycle confirmed to initiate a partnership agreement with Helbiz to establish sustainable recycling solutions for LIBs reaching their exhaustion period and are currently equipped across e-bikes and e-scooters.

Electric Vehicles Segment to Grow Steadily Fueled by Surging Number of Automobiles
Based on the source, the electric vehicles segment earned a significant in terms of the Lithium Ion Battery Recycling market share in 2020. This growth is attributable to the increasing number of various automobiles, such as bikes, cars, and buses. The electronics segment is predicted to hold a substantial share due to various factors such as improved profitability in recycling, disassembling of large devices, and long-standing battery installation in products.
