Market Definition:

The Second-life EV Battery Market size was valued at USD XX million in 2020 and is predicted to reach USD XX million by 2030 with a CAGR of XX% from 2021-2030.

The recent innovations in the Lithium-ion battery technologies have fueled the growth of the electric vehicles across the globe. These vehicles use rechargeable battery packs for power. On an average, the lifespan of these battery packs is estimated in between 10 to 20 years depending on the usage and the charging cycles. However, after 9 to 12 years of use, battery packs used in electric vehicles typically retain around 60% of its usable energy storage.

Therefore, they can deliver additional 5 to 7 years of performance in other secondary applications such as consumer devices, telecom towers, stationary and mobile energy-storage applications, which requires energy storage. These batteries also include metals and various other materials, which can be reused. Materials such as lithium, nickel, aluminum, cobalt, and others can also be recovered from these used batteries that reaches their end of the life and recycled.

Market Dynamics and Trends:

Rise in demand for low cost batteries for stationary energy-storage applications is driving the growth of the second-life EV battery market. For instance, the estimated cost of a second life EV battery ranges from $50-$150. However, the new battery pack with similar capacity would cost around $155 which offers significant cost effectiveness in favor of second-life EV batteries over new batteries. This is expected to boost the market of the second life EV batteries during the forecast period.

However, the logistics of the used batteries to be used for secondary applications is one of the factors that might hinder the growth of the market. Once the battery pack is removed from the EV, is it considered as a hazardous good and should abide by all the restrictions applied on the transportation of hazardous wastes. Therefore, companies around the world are trying to overcome these challenges in order to expand their market shares in near future.

Moreover, there are various advisory groups across the globe which provides advice for the legislature on policies pertaining to the reuse and recycling of used EV batteries such as Lithium-ion Car Battery Recycling Advisory Group which was formed in 2019 in California. Development of such advisory bodies is expected to boost the market in near future.

Market Segmentations and Scope of the Study:

The second-life EV battery market is segmented on the basis of battery type, battery source, application and geography. On the basis of battery type, the market is divided into lead acid battery, nickel metal hydride battery, and lithium ion battery. On the basis of battery source, the market is classified into two wheelers, electric buses, electric cars, and others. Based on application, the market is segmented into residential, on-grid, off-grid, and mobile applications. Geographic breakdown and analysis of each of the aforesaid segments includes regions comprising of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and RoW.

 

Geographical Analysis:

Asia-Pacific holds the lion share of second-life EV battery market during the forecast period. This is attributed to factors such as high penetration of the electric vehicles in countries such as China, Japan, and South Korea. This high penetration of electric vehicles is expected to generate more EV batteries, which needs replacement. The same can then be used in secondary applications once discarded from the EVs.

Also, presence of key players such as Fortum, ION Energy Inc., Enel X S.r.l., and others, which are into the business of recycling and reuse of the used EV batteries in Asia-Pacific region which is expected to boost the market in this region.

However, Europe is expected to show a steady rise in the second-life EV battery market due to the increasing adoption of electric vehicles in the automotive industry in this region. Moreover, high demand of zero emission vehicles coupled with stringent emission standards in key European cities, and presence of robust charging infrastructure are expected to drive the second-life EV battery market growth in this region.
