Global Lithium-ion Battery Materials Market is expected to surpass more than US$ 15 Billion by the end of year 2024. This report covers key growth drivers and scientific challenges for lithium-ion battery market. Lithium-ion batteries are one and only preferred choice source for portable electronics. The manufacturer of lithium-ion battery consistently doing a lot of research & development work to peruse technological advancements and reduce the size and weight of batteries, cost of batteries, increase their power output and safety. Moreover government regulation or policies to create framework suitable for battery regulated transportation system will foster the growth of lithium-ion battery in anticipated year.

Cathode is one of the important materials of lithium-ion battery, whereas lithium cobalt oxide and lithium-iron phosphate together control more than 80% of market share in 2017. Lithium cobalt oxide mainly used in Smartphone applications and comparatively less in portable PCs applications. Lithium-nickel manganese cobalt oxide is more demanded in xEV applications. The demand of lithium-nickel manganese cobalt oxide started since 2015 and anticipated to grow faster in forecast period. Lithium-iron phosphate earlier used in power tools and industrial applications but since 2015 it massively used in E-bus and now many e-bus battery manufacturers signing contract with lithium-iron phosphate producer to meet the high demand of e-bus.
