Nanostructured or nano-enabled batteries are a new generation of lithium-ion batteries and battery systems to serve applications and markets outside the historical domain of lithium-ion.

Nano-enabled batteries employ technology at the nanoscale, a scale of minuscule particles that measure less than 100 nanometers, or 100x10-9 meters. In comparison, traditional lithium-ion (Li-Ion) technology uses active materials, such as lithium cobalt-oxide or lithium iron phosphate, with particles that range in size between 5 and 20 micrometers. Nano-engineering improves many of the failings of present battery technology, such as re-charging time and battery “memory”. Researching battery micro- and nanostructure is a whole new approach that is only just beginning to be explored

Industrial production of nano batteries requires production of the electrode coatings in large batches so that large numbers of cells can be produced from the same material. Manufacturers using nano materials in their chemistry had to develop unique mixing and handling technologies.

This report is focused on high performance batteries that are based on nanoscale materials, which are being used in cordless electric tools, notebooks and adoption in plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), HEVs, which are the next great transportation advance that will move us into a cleaner, cheaper, and more oil-independent future. A nano battery that outlasts the car will greatly improve the economics of hybrids versus traditional cars.

This report analyzes the worldwide markets for nanostructure-enabled batteries already using nano lithium iron phosphates, nano titanium oxide, silicon/graphite composites, and other developments in nanometals, carbon nanotubes, nanocrystalline materials, nanowires and polymer nanocomposites specifically related to batteries.

The report provides separate comprehensive analyses for the U.S., Japan, western Europe, China, Korea, and the rest of the world. Forecasts are provided for each region for the period 2008 through 2013. Cost analysis of nanostructured batteries, analysis of global patents activity and market competition and dynamics in the new technology are also covered in the report. The report profiles 44 companies, including many key and niche players worldwide as technology providers, raw material suppliers, nano batteries assemblers and users.


This study focuses on nano-enabled batteries, providing market data about the size and growth of application segments, new developments, a detailed patent analysis, company profiles and industry trends. The goal of this report is to provide a detailed and comprehensive multi-client study of the market in North America, Europe, Japan, China, India, Korea and the rest of the world (ROW) for nanostructured batteries, and potential business opportunities in the future.

The objectives include thorough coverage of the underlying economic issues driving the nano-enabled batteries, as well as assessments of new advanced nano-enabled batteries that are being developed. Another important objective is to provide realistic market data and forecasts for nano-enabled batteries. The study also provides extensive quantification of the many important facets of market developments in nano-enabled batteries all over the world. This, in turn, contributes to the determination of what kind of strategic responses companies may want to adopt in order to compete in this dynamic market.

The report identifies the trends and strategies driving nano-enabled battery market segments, and focuses on detailed market share data and quantification in transport, specialty vehicles, power tools and portable consumer electronics devices.
