The Battery Rebuild Service Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 3.90 billion in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.8% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Battery rebuild services involve the reconstruction of used lead-acid batteries through the replacement of old battery components like battery plates and cells. This process helps recovered old batteries gain new life and functionality. The key end users of rebuilt batteries include automotive, mining equipment, data centres, and telecom tower operations among others. Battery rebuild services help reduce battery waste and lower operative costs associated with frequent battery replacements.
Rising demand for recycled lead batteries from the automotive industry is a major factor driving the growth of the battery rebuild service market. Lead–acid batteries remain the preferred energy storage technology for automobiles due to their affordable costs. As the average lifespan of an automotive battery is 3 to 5 years, battery rebuild services help extend this lifespan by another 5 years through cell replacement and reconstructing of batteries. Furthermore, with growing electric vehicle adoption, the demand for recycled batteries for EVs is also on the rise in order to make EVs more affordable and sustainable. This will further propel the battery rebuild service market.
Another key driver is the battery rebuild services helping reduce battery waste. As per estimates by United Nations, 50-80% of lead from used lead-acid batteries is recycled globally. However, there still exists a discarded battery waste of approximately 5 billion units annually which ends up in landfills. Battery rebuild services aid in optimizing this recycling rate through reconstruction of used batteries and bringing them back to the market. This also lowers the extraction of primary lead required for new battery
The global Battery Rebuild Service market is dominated by the automotive segment, accounting for over 50% share. Automotive batteries require periodic rebuild services due to wear and tear that occurs through regular use. Vehicles have complex battery systems that power critical components and require specialized rebuilding expertise. The automotive aftermarket has also grown in recent years, driving demand for battery rebuild services from vehicle owners and repair shops.
