Global Market for Lithium-Ion Batteries - Forecast, Trends & Opportunities 2015-2020

Global Market for Lithium-Ion Batteries - Forecast, Trends & Opportunities 2015-2020

Lithium-ion batteries are the most common type of advanced batteries that are in use today. They are used widely as a power supply for both consumer electronics as well as electric and hybrid vehicles around the world. However, the performance of lithium-ion batteries depends primarily on what kind of material they are made from. There are four main materials that are used to make lithium-ion batteries. There are cathode materials, anode materials, electrolytic solution and separators. This research report analyzes the complete market for lithium-ion battery materials as well, analyzing in-depth each material that is used to make a lithium-ion battery.

Demand for lithium-ion batteries continues to grow as demand in consumer electronics, particularly from the smartphone and tablet segments, drives the industry. Apart from consumer electronics, the automobile and industrial markets are also dependent on the lithium-ion battery market, thus driving growth further.

The supply of lithium-ion batteries is seeing the entry of many new players particularly from South Korea and China as the market emerges in these countries. However, there still remains room for advancements in technology in the lithium-ion battery market, particularly looking at the issue of raising energy density of the batteries.

The global lithium-ion battery industry was valued at USD 14 billion in 2013 and it is expected to grow exponentially to reach USD 35 billion by 2020. While these figures look might aggressive, a recent projection released by the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI, suggests that the global market size of the lithium-ion market could possible reach USD 250 billion by 2020, and that Japanese manufacturers will account for nearly 50% of this market by then.

It is no doubt an exciting time for the manufacturers of lithium-ion batteries.
