Analyst's Take on the Market Projection

According to Pooja Tanna, Lead Analyst, BIS Research, "Black mass recycling is the technique of recovering priceless metals and other materials from used lithium-ion batteries. These batteries are recovered majorly from industrial sources. The rising sustainable initiatives, increasing government funding, and focus on closing the loop for batteries are leading to the rise in recycling initiatives. Moreover, a black mass is the source for extracting metals with high purity and is also economical. Further, the presence of a large number of battery chemistries needs focused technologies for recycling metals from the black mass."

Nicel to Dominate the Black Mass Recycling Market (by Recovered Metal)

Based on the recovered metal segment, nickel metal held the majority share in the black mass recycling market in 2021. Nickel (Ni) has always been employed in batteries, notably in nickel-cadmium (NiCad) and nickel metal hydride (NiMH) rechargeable batteries. The primary benefit of employing nickel in batteries is that it allows for increased energy density and storage capacity at a lower cost. Nickel-based batteries are expected to play a bigger part in energy storage systems because of further advancements in battery technology, which will help lower the price per kilowatt hour (kWh) of battery storage.
