Lead acid batteries contain lead, nickel, and cobalt metals that can recover during recycling. Approximately 70 percent of the weight of a lead acid battery is reusable. The metals can be used for making new batteries and other products. Therefore, the price of scrap batteries is determined by the cost of the metals.


  • Automobile batteries become obsolete after three to five years of use, and the rising number of vehicles will likely result in more lead battery scrap
  • Battery producers and suppliers are encouraged to collect used and scrap batteries for recycling with supportive policies, incentives, and obligations
  • The hazardous nature of lead acid batteries to the environment and human health is driving the lead acid battery scrap market
Lead acid battery scrap is waste/used batteries drained, recycled, or disposed of after usage. More than 95% of lead acid battery scrap is recyclable; it can be re-used to produce new lead acid batteries. Typically, collection centers of battery manufacturers or scrap collectors receive used or scrap batteries from consumers and transport them to predescribe locations for further processing.

Lead Acid Battery Scrap Collection Process:

  • Customers place their requests to suitable recycling companies or scrap collectors to sell their used lead acid batteries
  • The recycling companies or scrap collectors collect the scrap batteries from the customers at the prescribed price
  • The collected scrap batteries are transported to a predetermined location or scrap yard and sorted out based on manufacturer or type
  • The sorted battery scrap is packed in different sizes based on vehicles
  • The packed scraped batteries are supplied to the recycled companies based on demand or order provided by the recycling companies

Lead Acid Battery Scrap Market Opportunities:

  • There is a growing collection of lead acid battery scraps in rural areas
  • Strategic collaborations with local government and environmental organizations lead to a cost-effective collection of scrap batteries in developing countries

Lead Acid Battery Scrap Market Challenges:

  • Growing replacement of lead acid batteries with lithium ion batteries in telecom, data centers, and others
  • Lack of skilled force in waste management

Lead Acid Battery Scrap Market Restraints:

  • Decreasing lead prices in the world market is restraining the growth of the lead acid battery scrap market
  • Decreasing the production of lead acid batteries is reducing the lead acid battery scrap market
