Electric Vehicle Battery Recycling Market to Value Over US$ 2 Billion by 2026 End

  • 09 May 2019

Almost a decade ago electric vehicles hit the road and now it’s time to tackle with expiring lithium batteries. The potential environmental hazard related to toxicity while extracting materials like cobalt, nickel and lithium used in electric vehicle battery is huge. However, the demand for key components like lithium used in electric vehicle (EV)batteries is ever-increasing due to booming production of electric vehicles. Recycling of electric vehicle battery components is twigged as means to control the costs of electric vehicle manufacturing. Also, the governments across the globe are forming guidelines for battery recycling so as to create equilibrium in environmental safety and commercial benefits. Thus electric vehicle battery recycling is attracting both upstream and downstream investments from various automotive industry players and local governments to expand facilities for recycling batteries efficiently. The finite availability of natural ores, demand for zero-emission vehicles and increasing expenditure in emerging economies is also aiding the growth of the electric vehicle battery recycling market.
The global electric vehicle battery recycling market is estimated to value over US$ 2 billion by 2026 end, and registering a CAGR of 39.2% during the period of 2019-2026.

The potentially high initial cost in setting up a recycling centre and wider recycling gap is estimated to hamper the growth of the market.

Key Focus Areas in Imminent Years Pertaining to Electric Vehicle Battery Recycling
•    Immense number of collaboration between government energy departments and OEMs, material suppliers, battery lifecycle management services and recycling centres
•    Designing recycling processes that spawn products fitting directly back into new batteries without high-priced reprocessing
•    Inventing in cost-effective recycling technologies that can create supplementary revenue.
•    Optimization of battery designs that facilitate convenient future recycling 
•    Innovative modelling and analysis tools to enable profitable EV battery recycling
