China has become the largest market for electric vehicles, not only because of government subsidies, but also because of a well-developed raw material base; attempts by the US and Europe to increase local traction battery production only highlight the importance of such a combination of factors for the development of the electric vehicle market, and the Japanese company Nissan Motor has decided to lease such vehicles for long-term purposes in order to reduce the outflow of used cars and their batteries outside the country.

One of Tesla's founders, Geoffrey Brian Strobel, who created Redwood Materials to process traction batteries, is confident that, in some ways, the electric vehicle industry will be able to fully meet its traction battery requirements using exclusively old battery-processing materials.

According to Financial Times, Japanese car manufacturers are concerned that secondary-market electric vehicles produced in Japan are actively supplied outside Japan, thus reducing the possibility of reuse and refurbishment of batteries for the benefit of Japanese consumers. Materials for the production of new batteries are constantly growing at a price, and it would be wiser to provide a kind of constant processing of batteries domestically rather than to spend on increasingly expensive raw materials supplied from abroad.
