The rapidly growing fleet of electric vehicles (EVs) is one of the most important driving factors for the lithium ion battery market. The automotive industry has been witnessing a visible shift from using nickel metal batteries to lithium ion batteries in plug-in vehicles and EVs. The beneficial physical characteristics of lithium ion batteries such as small size and light weight have bolstered their demand across the automotive industry.
The global lithium ion battery market is estimated to expand at a CAGR of around 14% by value over the next decade, and reach a valuation of US4 127 Bn by 2030.
Key Takeaways from Lithium Ion Battery Market Study
- Increasing growth of the automotive industry in developing countries has led to a substantial rise in the demand for lithium ion battery packs in emerging economies in Asia Pacific, such as India and China. In addition, South Korea, which is one of the leading lithium battery producing countries in the world, is expected to emerge as a lucrative market for lithium ion battery pack manufacturers in the coming decade.
- In recent years, lithium ion batteries have become highly prevalent in commonly used portable electronic equipment, such as smartphones, tablets/PCs, digital cameras, and power tools. Owing to their superior performance over other battery technologies, especially when space is a big concern, lithium ion batteries are witnessing sustained demand from consumer electronics manufacturers.
- Currently, Asian manufacturers are investing in additional and new production capabilities close to major demand centers, i.e. in Asia, the U.S., and Europe. This is anticipated to further open new opportunities for serving clients in these regions.
- The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all industries, including the lithium ion battery market in a big way. Plummeting auto sales and raw material procurement issues due to various restrictions will affect market growth in the near term.
“In the backdrop of a potential rise in sales, leading manufacturers in the lithium ion battery market are concentrating on reducing their prices to sustain the competition. In addition to this, incorporating innovative materials for the manufacturing of lithium ion batteries so as to slash production cost is emerging as a popular trend among manufacturers,” says a PMR analyst.
