    Market Dynamics

    The global lithium-ion battery recycling market is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period owing to several factors including –

    • Rise in adoption of Electric Vehicles (EVs) – EV Volumes expect ~14 million EVs to be sold by the end of 2023, which is a more than 30% rise as compared to 2022 annual sales. Also, the International Energy Agency (IEA) estimates that the global E-cars stock may expand to ~350 million by 2030, which would represent >60% of total vehicles sold globally. Lithium-ion batteries are commonly used in electric vehicles and with the growing demand for electric vehicles, the need for more efficient and advanced batteries will rise, promoting recycling the older batteries.
    • Government policies and incentives – Several governments across the globe are providing EV battery recycling funds to retailers. For instance, the government of India has offered export promotion schemes such as the Export Promotion Capital Goods (EPCG) Scheme, under which the govt. encourages lithium-ion battery recycling businesses to expand their presence across the globe. Such push from the governments will promote lithium-ion battery recycling initiatives.
    • Growing demand for critical metals – Major components that contribute to improved performance of any lithium-ion batteries are lithium, manganese, cobalt, steel, nickel, graphite, etc. With the growing demand for lithium-ion batteries, the demand for crucial metals will also grow. Recycling the old batteries can help to extract those raw materials and reuse them. This will not only reduce the cost of new batteries, but also can conserve resources, and reduce pollution.
