Lithium Ion Battery Recycling Market to Exhibit 18.5% CAGR during 2021-2028; Lithion Recycling Inc. Receives Fund from Government of Quebec to Develop Innovative Technology

October 04, 2021 | Energy & Power

The global Lithium Ion Battery Recycling market size is projected to reach USD 6.55 billion by 2028. Several companies are persistently striving to set up their recycling infrastructures. It would help in the commercialization of multiple Lithium Ion type of Battery Recycling processes. Fortune Business Insights™ published this information in a study, titled, “Lithium Ion Battery Recycling Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Chemistry (Lithium Cobalt Oxide, Lithium Iron Phosphate, Lithium Manganese Oxide, Lithium Nickel Cobalt Aluminum Oxide, and Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide), By Source (Electronics, Electric Vehicles, Power Tools, and Others), By Process (Physical/Mechanical, Hydrometallurgical, and Pyrometallurgical), and Regional Forecast, 2021-2028.” The study further says that the market stood at USD 1.70 billion in 2020. It will exhibit a CAGR of 18.5% during the forecast period between 2021-2028.

Lohum Cleantech to Boost its Production and Recycling Capacities

In July 2021, Lohum Cleantech, a lithium-ion battery manufacturer and recycling solutions provider announced to boost its production and recycling capacities. The company aims to expand the LIB output from 300 MWh to 1 GWh along with a ten-fold increase in recycling capabilities from 1,000 tonnes per annum (TPA) to 10,000 TPA over the next two years.

Increasing Shift towards Low-carbon Generation Transportation Fleets to Surge Demand

People in developed and emerging nations are nowadays trying to reduce carbon emissions by rapidly shifting towards low-carbon generation transportation fleets. Besides, the increasing adoption of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), and battery electric vehicles (BEVs) since the last few years has resulted in the surging number of end-of-life batteries globally. In December 2020, Japan’s government planned to ban the sales of gasoline-only cars by the end of 2030. However, the rising recycling of lead-acid batteries may obstruct the Lithium Ion Battery Recycling market growth in the upcoming years.
