Global Electric Vehicle Battery Recycling Market to Reach US$ 8.66 Billion by 2027, Propelled by Significant Growth in Automotive Sector

Published on Oct 25, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Electric Vehicle Battery Recycling Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, the global electric vehicle battery recycling market size reached a value of US$ 1.77 Billion in 2021. Recycling EV (electric vehicle) batteries is a way to improve metallurgical processes by increasing the efficiency and extraction of copper, nickel, and cobalt, resulting in a higher yield for batteries. A process involving pyrometallurgy (or smelting) and hydrometallurgy is used to recover nickel (Ni), cobalt (Co), aluminum (Al), iron (Fe), and lithium (Li) from a battery cathode. It also prevents hazardous materials from entering the waste stream after the battery's end of life (EOL). As a result, recycling EV batteries helps reduce the dependence on intensive mining for battery development and recover most of the lithium contained within them.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.


Global Electric Vehicle Battery Recycling Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by considerable growth in the automotive industry. This can be attributed to the increasing adoption of zero-emission electric vehicles among the masses. In addition to this, the growing number of EV batteries requiring proper management at EoL is also resulting in a higher uptake of recycling services. Moreover, continual advancements in recycling technologies, including cathode-to-cathode recycling, chemical powders and direct recycling, are providing an impetus to the market. Apart from this, favorable government initiatives supporting the sales of EVs, including offering various incentives and tax deductions, are creating a positive market outlook. Some of the other factors contributing to the growth of the market include the continuous depletion of fossil fuels, rapid industrialization, the growing awareness regarding environmental pollution and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 8.66 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 28.70% during 2022-2027.
