Lithium-Ion Battery Market to Grow at a Steady CAGR of 26.04% Till 2026
Increasing use of lithium-ion batteries in cars to drive the growth of global lithium-ion battery market in the forecast period, 2022-2026.

Lithium-Ion Battery Market

According to TechSci Research report, Lithium-Ion Battery Market - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends, Competition, Opportunity and Forecast, 2016-2026” The global lithium-ion battery market stood at USD42.30 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 26.04% during the forecast period on account of increasing sales of electric vehicles and adoption of lithium-ion batteries in energy storage system, consumer electronics and other applications.

The growing demand for lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles, consumer electronics, among others is expected to drive the market growth through 2026. Additionally, increasing focus of automakers on manufacturing electrical vehicles with lithium-ion battery in comparison to other battery alternatives is contributing to the growth of the market. Lithium and carbon are commonly used as electrodes that are lightweight on their own, producing much compact and lighter batteries than their older alternatives such as lead-acid batteries, etc. Also, high energy density of the battery due to lithium being highly reactive and its ability to release and store large amount of energy makes a lithium -ion battery of high energy contained in small size. Due these particular characteristics, lithium-ion is being adopted globally and is being used in microelectronic devices, mobiles, laptops, watch, uninterruptable power supply (UPS), electric vehicles passenger cars, hybrid trucks & buses, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles(PHEVs), two wheelers, robots, military applications, solar PV backup power material handling equipment, industrial, telecommunication systems, energy storage systems, smart grid, aviation industry, and geostationary or geosynchronous orbit (GEO) satellites, etc. Such huge applications of lithium-ion battery is further expected to support the market growth over the next few years. Besides, advancements such as use of lithium chalcogen batteries, lithium oxygen battery among others are expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market growth through 2026.

The global lithium-ion battery market is segmented based on type, shape, application, company, and regional distribution. In terms of type the market can be categorized into lithium cobalt oxide, lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide, lithium manganese oxide and lithium iron phosphate and others. Lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide type dominated the market in 2020 with an overall share of 47.62% on account of its lower cost and compact design. A Lithium-ion battery consists of cathode, anode, electrolyte, and separator. The Battery type is usually named after its cathode materials such as NCM battery which is composed of Lithium, Nickel, Cobalt and Manganese. The traditional lithium-ion battery being lithium cobalt oxide is costlier than NMC due to higher cost of cobalt. The cost depends on the percentages of lithium, nickel, cobalt in lithium battery. In all the chemistries the lithium nickel manganese cobalt chemistry enables the highest energy storage density for rechargeable batteries and feature among the higher cycle life compared to other cathode materials. Moreover, the energy required to manufacture NCM batteries does not require significant amount of energy. Due to these factors major players are adopting NMC technology. All these factors are going to spur the growth of the global lithium-ion battery market in forecast period.
