NEW YORK, Nov. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Batteries find extensive applications in various industries and end use applications. They are the most important equipment for electrical energy storage. In recent times the world has seen exponential growth in portable devices in critical as well as no critical functions of day to day life. This growth in portable devices has seen a tremendous growth in battery usage. Chemicals store energy in a battery and then deliver it to desired usage through a chemical reaction. In chargeable batteries this process is reversible for certain number of cycles. In non-chargeable batteries the process is not reversible. In both types of batteries once the capacity of delivering energy of the battery comes to an end it needs replacement. The new battery replaces old battery and old battery is thrown away. Due to large quantum of devices using batteries these used batteries are posing environmental concerns due to presence of hazardous chemicals. There are different ways to treat these spent batteries. These batteries can be used to extract materials, can be awarded a second life through repackaging or can be disposed scientifically. This research study analyzes the market for battery recycling in terms of revenue (US$ Mn). The battery recycling market has been segmented on the basis of battery chemistry, spent battery source, end-use, and region. In terms of region, the market has been divided into five segments that comprise twenty five countries, which are major players in the global battery recycling market. For the research, 2014 and 2015 have been taken as the base years, while all forecasts have been given for the period from 2016 to 2024. Market data for all the segments has been provided at the regional and country level from 2016 to 2024. The report provides a broad competitive analysis of companies engaged in the battery recycling business. The report also includes key market dynamics such as drivers, restraints, and opportunities affecting the global battery recycling market. These market dynamics were analyzed in detail and are illustrated in the report with the help of supporting graphs and tables. The report also provides a comprehensive analysis of the global battery recycling market with the help of Porter's Five Forces model. This analysis helps in understanding the five major forces that affect the market structure and market profitability. The forces analyzed are bargaining power of buyers, bargaining power of suppliers, threat of new entrants, threat of substitutes, and degree of competition.
