Battery Separators Market by Battery Type (Lead Acid, Li-ion), End-use Industry (Automotive, Consumer Electronics, Industrial, Others), Material (Polyethylene. Polypropylene), and Region (APAC, EU, NA, MEA, and SA) - Global Forecast to 2022

“The active shift in the automotive industry toward electrically-driven vehicles and increasing demand for smartphones and other electronic products are the key factors fueling the growth of the battery separator market.”

The global battery separator market is projected to reach USD 5.13 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 12.5%, from USD 2.85 billion in 2017. Stringent government regulations regarding reduction of carbon emission, inclination of automotive manufacturers toward production of EVs, and rising demand for smartphones due to rapid urbanization are the key factors that are driving the demand for battery separators. Moreover, increasing industrialization and higher dependency on technology leads to a demand for consumer electronics, and constant development in these areas has further increased the adoption of compact batteries. This, in turn, is expected to fuel the demand for battery separators. However, low heat resistance of battery separator materials and various reported cases of battery failures could lead to a lower the consumption of battery separators.

“Based on end-use industry, the automotive segment is estimated to lead the battery separator market during the forecast period”
Automotive is the largest end-use industry segment of the battery separator market, in terms of value. Battery separators are a vital part of a battery, and are required to deliver efficient performance while managing the weight and size of batteries as per manufacturers’ requirements. Advancements in technology have led to improvements in battery cell chemistry, leading to a reduction in the weight of battery packs. This has substantially influenced the use and demand for suitable battery separators for various automotive applications. Owing to environmental concerns and awareness about clean and sustainable fuel, there is a rise in the demand for EVs. There is also an increasing competition between manufacturers of battery models installed in EVs owing to the need for operational excellence. Hence, this market is expected to witness continuous sturdy growth, with respect to both medium as well as long-term perspective.

“Rising demand from various applications is expected to drive battery separator market in Asia Pacific region”
Asia Pacific is the largest market for battery separators, in terms of value. The fast-growing middle-class segment, as well as rising purchasing power and disposable income have elevated the demand of battery separators in this region. The growth of the consumer electronics and automotive industries is mainly attributed to the global expansion by domestic brands and support from various governments. The increasing use of battery separators in the automotive and electronics applications is also driving the market in the region.
