Research Methodology

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the battery recycling market begins with capturing data on key vendor revenues through secondary sources, such as Battery Industrial Council, European Battery Recycling Association, and Sustainability Victoria. Secondary research was mainly conducted to obtain key information about the industry’s supply chain, market’s monetary chain, total pool of players, and market classification & segmentation according to industry trends to the bottom-most level, regional markets, and key developments from both market and technology-oriented perspectives. The primary sources are mainly experts from core and related industries and preferred suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, service providers, technology developers, alliances, and organizations related to all segments of this industry’s value chain. In-depth interviews with various primary respondents that include key industry participants, subject matter experts (SMEs), C-level executives of key market players, and industry consultants were conducted to obtain and verify critical qualitative and quantitative information as well as to assess prospects of the market.

The vendor offerings were also taken into consideration to determine the market segmentation. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and subsegments, which were later verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key personnel, such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. Data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments of the market. The breakdown of profiles of primaries is depicted in the figure below.

The global battery recycling market is projected to reach USD 11.83 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.5% between 2017 and 2022. The growth of this market can be attributed to the growing output of spent batteries from the automotive and industrial sources.

The lead-acid battery chemistry segment dominated the global battery recycling market in 2016, followed by the lithium-based and nickel-based chemistries. Lead-acid is the most common type of chemistry, and is used in a wide range of automotive and industrial applications. The lead-acid chemistry segment is projected to witness the highest growth from 2017 to 2022, due to the increasing use of starting, lighting, and ignition (SLI) batteries.

Automotive source was the largest segment of the battery recycling market, by source in 2016. An automotive battery is an indispensable component of the powertrain of a vehicle, independent of the fuel used for its operation. It is used to power the electrical systems of the vehicle when the engine is turned off. It is also used to start the engine and to provide current for the ignition system and electric starter motor. The energy from the battery is also utilized when the electric requirement of the vehicle exceeds its alternator’s capacity. Majority of the vehicles use a 12V lead acid battery for these applications.

Battery Recycling Market

Europe is projected to be the fastest-growing market, as it is a major recycler of all chemistries of spent batteries. The growing output of spent batteries from various end-use sources, such as automotive, industrial, and consumer & electronic appliances is responsible for the growth of the Europe battery recycling market. Stringent environmental regulations for proper disposal and recycling of batteries in the economies, such as Germany and the U.K., are also among the factors expected to drive the European battery recycling market during the forecast period. Key countries in the Europe battery recycling market are Germany, the U.K., France, Russia, and Italy.

Stringent government regulations to control environmental hazards during battery manufacturing and disposal are driving the growth of the battery recycling market.

Key players operational in the battery recycling market include Call2Recycle, Inc.
