Global Lithium-Ion Battery (LIB) Separator market 2018-2022
About this market
High uptake rate of wet separator from automotive industry to gain traction in the market. Lithium-ion battery separators are available in two types: dry and wet separators. The wet separator has a torturous sector and interconnected micropores, which makes it more suitable for use in long cycle life batteries as it prevents the growth dendrites while charging and discharging. Technavio’ s analysts have predicted that the lithium-ion battery separator market will register a CAGR of almost 18% by 2022.
Shift of automotive industry toward EVs
EVs are gaining popularity because of the growing environmental concerns and the need for a sustainable ecosystem in the automotive industry. Various countries have set policies to reduce pollution levels by vehicle emissions. More expeditious actions are required to fulfill the standards set by policies.
Growing competition from fuel cells
lithium-ion battery faces competition from multiple battery types including lead-acid batteries, nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries, and newly emerging technologies such as fuel cell, sodium batteries, and solid-state batteries which have applications in various industries.
