Increasing usage of consumer electronics propelling the growth of the lithium-ion battery market.
Consumer electronics require power sources that have high energy and power density to run the devices smoothly; hence all consumer electronics products use lithium-ion batteries as the primary source of power.
Sustained demand from developed nations in North America and Europe and expanding Asian markets such as China, India, and South Korea are driving the sales of consumer electronics. Moreover, safety concerns related to lithium-ion batteries, such as instances of explosion and fire, are pushing the manufacturers to develop safer batteries with high energy density. Therefore, the increased consumer requirements and the other factors above have created a significant opportunity for the growth of the lithium-ion battery market.
High energy density boosts the demand for lithium nickel manganese oxide (Li-NMC), witnessing the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
The market for lithium nickel manganese oxide (Li-NMC) is estimated to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. The automotive industry has dominated the lithium-ion battery market. Electric vehicles require high capacity and high power that can only be provided by the use of the NMC battery type.
The use of new electrolytes and additives support the charging of cell up to 4.4 V/cell. The NMC cell is growing in its range as three components involved are easy to blend and be made useful for a wide range of applications from the automotive industry to the energy storage system (ESS).
Lithium-ion battery market in APAC to witness the highest growth rate in the coming years.
The lithium-ion battery industry in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2020 to 2025. The automotive, consumer electronics, and power industry applications are expected to drive the demand for advanced batteries in the region.
