Global Lithium-ion Battery Market, analyzed by Astute Analytica, was valued at US$ 60,385.6 Mn in 2021 and is projected to reach US$ 1,85,040.3 Mn by 2027. The market is expected to register a growth at a CAGR of 20.5% during the forecast period 2022-2027. Li-ion batteries are an evolving technology of interest. Small lithium-ion batteries are widely used in portable electronic devices and large lithium-ion batteries have been produced to power EVs. A lithium-ion battery is a rechargeable battery, which utilizes lithium ions as the essential component of its electrochemistry. The lithium-ion batteries have a wide range of applications right from heavy-duty vehicles to smartwatches and other daily used electronic gadgets. They are one of the most popular types of rechargeable batteries for portable electronics, with one of the best energy-to-weight ratios, high open-circuit voltage, low self-discharge rate, no memory effect, and a slow loss of charge when not in use. Beyond consumer electronics, lithium-ion batteries are growing in popularity for the military, electric vehicle, and aerospace applications due to their high energy density. Li-ion batteries with high power and high energy are used for new applications such as electric vehicles, for which safety concern is essential.
The growing impetus of the market is due to factors such as increasing demand for electric vehicles and the rising adoption of consumer electronics. The global appliance and consumer electronics (ACE) market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12-15% during 2017-2027. Rising disposable income coupled with the need for internet usage has further boosted the demand for smart consumer electronics. Apart from the consumer electronics stream, the lithium-ion battery has major applications in the integration of renewable energy with grid technology, telecommunication, and even aerospace. The increasing adoption of lithium-ion batteries is observed due to their capacity to hold maximum power generating capacity in small size and lighter weight.
Lithium-ion batteries have a risk of being outcompeted by other advanced technologies such as zinc batteries, flow batteries, and high-temperature batteries among others.
Rapid growth in adoption of electric vehicles and electronic gadgets equipped with lithium-ion batteries is observed and is projected to rise in the forecast period, thus, leading to the need for recycling of Li-ion batteries. The scarcity of metals and materials used in the manufacturing of Li-ion is also a crucial reason for driving the trend of recycling Li-ion batteries. Moreover, to decrease the dependence on future imports of key raw metals and to escape health and environmental hazards recycling lithium-ion batteries is essential.
Based on type, the market is segmented into lithium nickel magnesium cobalt (LI-NMC), lithium ferro phosphate (LFP), lithium cobalt oxide (LCO), lithium titanate oxide (LTO), lithium manganese oxide (LMO) and lithium nickel cobalt aluminum oxide (NCA). Among these, lithium nickel magnesium cobalt (LI-NMC) batteries dominated the market in 2021 as it is one of the most successful cathode combinations.
Power Capacity Insights:
Based on power capacity, the market is segmented into 0-300 mAH; 3,000-10,000 mAH; 10,000-60,000 mAH; and more than 60,000 mAH. Among different capacities of lithium-ion batteries, 3,000 – 10,000 mAH segment hold more than half of the market share as this range is majorly applicable in consumer electronics.
Based on application, the market is segmented into consumer electronics OEMs, automotive OEMs, energy storage, industrial OEMs, and aftermarket. Among these, the automotive OEMs segment holds the highest share in 2021 and further registers the highest CAGR over the projection period. This is due to the rising adoption of electric vehicles due to environmental concerns.
In terms of design, the market is categorized into pouch, cylindrical, elliptical, prismatic, and custom design. The cylindrical design of lithium-ion batteries holds nearly 45% of the market share owing to ease in manufacturing and good mechanical stability. The design supports the battery to withstand high internal pressures without deforming.
Asia Pacific dominated the global lithium-ion battery market in 2021. Most of the market is held by players from countries like China and India, which have considerable potential for various applications of lithium-ion batteries. Further, Asia Pacific is the highest producer of electric vehicles, which in turn is projected to propel the market growth. Further, Europe registers the highest CAGR over the projection period.
