Published: Jun 2021 | Report Code: 60386-06-21

The hydrometallurgical recycling market is expected to cross market value of USD 1,251.1 million in 2027 from USD 543.6 million in 2020. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 12.8% during the forecast period.

Key Market Drivers and Restraints

In recent years, the number of used lithium-ion batteries has increased dramatically, and from the perspective of environmental protection and resource conservation, it is necessary and urgent to develop a recycling method for waste lithium-ion batteries. The hydrometallurgical process is considered to be the most suitable method for recycling spent lithium-ion batteries. Also, technological advancement in recycling process and high investments by government authorities have boosted growth of global hydrometallurgical recycling market over the forecast period.

However, due to the large difference and diversity between the high energy density, high safety, and low price of lithium-ion batteries, it is difficult to recycle used lithium-ion batteries which is a factor expected to hamper the global hydrometallurgical recycling market.

Impact of COVID 19

The hydrometallurgical recycling market will show considerable growth on the back of the global pandemic. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, global or partial shutdown have a negative impact on the supply chain and product demand. In addition, decrease in work employees in this pandemic has impacted the market growth negatively and hampered its growth.

Asia Pacific to Dominate the global hydrometallurgical recycling market

The global hydrometallurgical recycling market covers the six regions, namely Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, Latin America (LATAM), Middle East and Africa, including all the key economies in these regions. Asia Pacific market is dominated the global market and accounted for more than 34.3% of the target market. This is attributed to increasing demand for hydrometallurgical recycling process and presence of major players in the region.

Lithium-nickel Manganese Cobalt (Li-NMC) would continue to dominate the global hydrometallurgical recycling market in terms of battery chemistry
