Lithium-ion battery is a rechargeable battery that is used in electric vehicles and portable electronics. Lithium-ion battery consists of three functional elements- positive electrodes, the negative electrode, and electrolyte. The negative electrode is made from carbon. The positive electrode is composed of metal oxide. The electrolyte is a lithium salt in the organic solvent. Lithium-ion battery differs based on performance, price, and chemistry. Battery recycling means to lessen the number of batteries being thrown as waste. Recycling enables the reduction of material going into landfills. Lithium-ion batteries include valuable metals such as cobalt and nickel and to avoid the shortage of these metals recycling process of lithium ions battery is needed. Recycling of lithium-ion batteries can be undertaken by several technological procedures such as the pyro-metallurgy process, hydrometallurgical process, and other mechanical processes. Automotive, power generation, marine, electricity is some of the industries using lithium-ion batteries.

Automotive Industry segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2021-30
Global Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling market is segmented by end-user into automotive, marine, power, industrial, and others. The Automotive Industry segment held the largest market share in the year 2020 and is expected to maintain this trend throughout the forecast period. The demand for electric vehicles is rising and as a result of that the lithium-ion batteries recycling is mounting as the availability of lithium metal is limited. The recycled matter is used in the manufacturing of batteries.
Limited Availability of Lithium Ions Battery
One of the important factors driving the lithium-ion battery recycling market is the limited availability of raw materials such as nickel, cobalt, and aluminum. There are no other alternatives of lithium as efficient as them owing to which the recycling of lithium-ion batteries is becoming more common. Furthermore, the mining of lithium causes a harmful impact on the environment including water pollution on account of the leakage of chemicals into the water.
High Demand in Electrical and Electronics Industry
Lithium-ion batteries are widely used in mobile phones, laptops, tablets due to which the market for lithium-ion battery recycling is anticipated to boost. With the expansion of the electrical & electronics sector, the demand for lithium-ion batteries is increasing. besides meeting the increasing demand for batteries by consumers the available reserves of the metal are insufficient due to which the lithium-ion batteries market is projected to grow.
Higher costs involved in Lithium-ion batteries recycling are the major key factor restraining the growth of the global Lithium-ion batteries recycling market. A large investment is needed to set up the industry.
