Based on furnace, the market is segmented as rotary, reverberatory, and blast. The blast furnace method can be used for both primary lead production from ores and secondary lead production from scrap materials. Given the growing emphasis on sustainability, many blast furnace operators may increasingly focus on recycling lead from spent batteries and other secondary sources. This can not only reduce the environmental impact but also be a cost-effective way to source lead thus it will enhance business demand.
