World Battery Materials

World Battery Materials

Global demand for battery materials in expected to reach nearly $47 billion in 2019 after yearly gains of over eight percent, according to analysis by the Freedonia Group. The increasing ownership of mobile devices around the world, as well as a transition from primary to secondary battery use, will support gains.

China to post fastest gains
China has become the world’s largest battery producing country, surpassing the US and Japan in the last decade. Going forward, secondary batteries will account for a larger fraction of Chinese battery output, driving double digit growth in demand through 2019.

Chemicals to grow at market leading pace
The growing popularity of portable devices, as well as increasing ownership of hybrid and/or electric vehicles, will drive demand for battery chemicals. In particular, demand for lithium chemicals will post double-digit gains.

Materials prices to stabilize
A number of battery materials -- including lead, lithium, and rare earth metals -- experienced price volatility during the 2004-2014 period. Going forward, it is anticipated that pricing for most materials will stabilize.
