The COVID-19 outbreak hindered the growth of the global market in 2020, and thus, there is a decline in the y-o-y growth. However, the growth is expected to normalize from 2021 onward and the Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling market is projected to grow at a steady pace.
Lithium-ion batteries are found in large proportion. They are becoming crucial among industries, including automotive, mining, and consumer electronics. Smartphones, cordless power tools, laptops, tablets, grid-energy storage, and electric vehicles are the prominent applications where lithium-ion batteries are used at a massive rate. Companies, such as Tesla and Envirostream, are taking necessary steps to promote lithium-ion batteries. For instance, in November 2020, Lithium Australia’s subsidiary – Envirostream, has signed an agreement to supply SungEel HiTech, a South Korean firm, with metals to manufacture recycled batteries. Envirostream would provide energy metals—such as nickel, lithium, and cobalt—extracted from recycled lithium-ion batteries out of Australia to SungEel HiTech, who would later use these minerals to deliver environmentally sustainable technology projects. Similarly, Tesla to boasts largest lithium-ion battery at the Hornsdale site in South Australia. This project would contribute in improving the energy sector.
Several countries worldwide have declared a state of emergency as COVID-19 continues to spread. Besides the urgent “cities closure” in European, American, and Asian countries, key manufacturing industries in India, Malaysia, Philippines, and other Southeast Asian nations have announced closures in succession, which is expected to bring challenges to the supply side of several industries such as automotive, marine, industrial, and electric and electronics, among others. The long-term impact of COVID-19 is still unknown. However, the shutdown of the critical material supply chain has affected the battery manufacturing industry. The declining price of oil has attracted several consumers to buy gasoline-powered automobiles. Also, fluctuating shifts, tariffs, economic and environmental policies, and prolonged trade conflicts among the US and China had disrupted raw material supply chains and shifted some manufacturing and recycling facilities to Europe and Japan. Yet, the electric energy storage demand stays high for personal electronics and cars, as well as renewable energy efforts rely on available battery banks in their primary aim to decarbonize the energy supply, distribute it, and make it cheaper. Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic is anticipated to have a short-term negative impact on the Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling market.

The use of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries has become dominant in several applications, including consumer electronic products, electric vehicles, military, and industrial applications owing to advantages related to energy density and product durability. However, high rate of consumer product disposal, small battery size, and absence of uniform disposal regulatory policy are significantly resulting in environmental pollution due to potentially toxic materials in these batteries. As per the Environmental Protection Agency, over three billion batteries are thrown each year in the US alone. Most of the lithium-ion batteries are disposed as landfills. Lithium is not a heavy toxic metal; thus, the pressure on the disposal of these batteries is not too intense. However, in some instances, copper, cobalt, and nickel occur in substantial quantities. Also, in case of disposal of these batteries in large quantities in a limited area, many trace elements can possibly reach toxic levels. Unprofessional disposal of lithium-ion batteries can result in affecting the environment. With the rising concerns for environment pollution, government and battery manufacturers are now more focused on considering the recycling of these batteries. This, in turn, is bolstering the growth of Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling market.
Based on technology, the Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling market is segmented into lithium-nickel manganese cobalt, lithium-iron phosphate, lithium-manganese oxide, lithium titanate oxide, and lithium-nickel cobalt aluminum oxide. The lithium-nickel manganese cobalt segment led the Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling market with a decent market share in 2019.

Based on application, the Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling market is segmented into automotive, mining, industrial, power, and consumer electronics. The consumer electronics segment led the Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling market with a decent market share in 2019. The demand for consumer electronic devices, such as tablets, smartphones, digital cameras, laptops, and home devices, is increasing; and the most challenging issue faced these devices includes upgrading, enhancing, and improving existing lithium-ion batteries. The inclination toward using smart electronic devices is experiencing a snowball effect owing to growing middle-class population and their changing lifestyle. Also, the government bodies are putting efforts on digitization and encouraging use of different electronic devices among individuals. With rising demand for battery power for different wireless devices, the focus toward developing portable battery power for power tools, tablets, laptops, and smart phones is increasing. In addition, with booming sales of tablet PCs and smartphones, the adoption of batteries, such as lithium-ion, is expanding. This aspect would assist in influencing the market growth.
