Battery Rebuild Service is Driven by Rising Demand for Sustainable Battery Management

The battery rebuild service involves rebuilding and repairing used lead-acid batteries to restore them to like-new condition. Used lead-acid batteries such as automotive and industrial batteries are collected, disassembled, and the individual cells are inspected. The used plates are cleaned and reformed, and any damaged or worn-out plates are replaced with new ones. The lead grid structure is restored, new active material is added, and the battery is reassembled and tested to ensure specified performance. This process significantly extends the lifespan of used batteries and returns them to the market. The global battery rebuild service helps divert batteries from landfills and reduces the need for mining new lead and other raw materials. It provides an economical and sustainable solution for used batteries.

The global Battery Rebuild Service Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 3.90 Bn in 2024 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.

Market key trends:
One of the key trends in the battery rebuild service market is emerging partnerships between battery manufacturers and service providers. Major battery producers are collaborating with rebuilders to offer their customers sustainable battery management solutions. For instance, in 2021, Batteries Plus Bulbs partnered with East Penn Manufacturing, a lead-acid battery manufacturer, to launch the Battery Refresh Program. Through this program, used East Penn batteries returned by customers are collected, assessed, rebuilt/refreshed, and resold with a warranty. Such partnerships help provide integrated solutions to end-users while promoting circularity in the battery value chain.
