Market size and forecast in terms of value and volume has been provided for the period - (2017 - 2025), for both the segments namely modular construction type and application in each of the major countries in the U.S., Europe, Japan, China, India and rest of the world. Historical market trend and data has also been provided for the period (2017 – 2015), in order to help the stakeholders better understand the market growth pattern and business opportunities.

Market Determinants

With the constant emphasize on the sustainable development and environment safety, fossil fuels have been under serious consideration since the last few decades. With the depletion of conventional oil and gas resources, constant improvisations are being done in terms of fuel consumption. Conventional IC engine automobiles are now being upgraded to hybrid and electric vehicles which are highly efficient. Lithium ion battery is an indispensable part of these EVs. With the growth of electric and hybrid vehicles all around the world, there would be a provision of growth platform for the recycling industry of these batteries. Rapidly developing countries of Asia-pacific region are expected to witness the fastest growth in the near future owing to the vast development in automobile manufacturing and consumer electronics industry.

According to BAJ, lithium-ion batteries accounted for almost 31% share of the total batteries produced in Japan in 2016, witnessing a 5% increase from the previous year. In 2015, lithium-ion batteries held 45% share of the total battery sales amount in Japan in the automobile sector, including all the export statistics. Moreover, recycling of Li-ion batteries can actually result in a generous recovery of metals such as cobalt and nickel which can impact the economy in a positive manner. However, lack of chemistry standardization of these batteries and uncertain future trends growth might hamper the market growth.
