Global Recycled Lead Market Driven by Increasing Demand for Lead Batteries

The recycled lead market involves the process of collecting and treating scrap or waste lead to recover lead for further usage. Lead finds widespread applications in lead batteries, which are used in automobiles, backup power supplies, and more. The recycled lead helps extend the life of batteries and reduces the environmental impact of lead mining. The global recycled lead market is dominated by lead–acid batteries that require recycled lead as a key raw material. Recycled lead can replace approximately 70% of the raw material needed for battery production.
The global recycled lead market is estimated to be valued at US$ 19.68 billion in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 3.8% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031.
