The global Lithium-ion battery market reached a value of around US$ 25 Billion in 2017. The market is further projected to reach a value of US$ 47 Billion by 2023, exhibiting a CAGR of around 11% during 2018-2023. Lithium-ion battery, also known as Li-ion Battery (LIB), is a rechargeable battery that uses intercalated lithium in the form of an electrode to produce a charge. A standard Lithium-ion Battery comprises of three components - anode, cathode and electrolyte. The lithium ions flow between the anode and the cathode to cause a discharge. Currently, there are several versions of the Li-ion Battery available which include lithium cobalt, lithium manganese oxide, lithium iron phosphate, lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide, lithium nickel coal aluminium oxide and lithium titanate. All of these operate by releasing lithium ion from different types of compounds. The Li-ion batteries are generally used in a plethora of devices such as mobile phones, laptop computers, cameras, personal digital assistants and other portable consumer electronics.
The Li-ion technology currently holds several advantages over its predecessor Nickel Cadmium. Li-ion batteries provide a significantly high energy density which can be used for powering electronic devices over a longer duration. This is one of the major factors which has been proliferating the growth of the market. Additionally, their low rate of self-discharge and low maintenance effort offer Li-ion batteries an edge over the other substitutes available in the market. Also, with the development of new variants, the Lithium-ion Battery technology can be enhanced to handle different types of market needs ranging from powering smartphones to electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles. This has, in turn, contributed towards an augmented demand for lithium ion batteries across the globe. Apart from this, there is a persistent demand for batteries which are energy-efficient, low cost and environment friendly in nature. Moreover, the market growth is further catalysed by the strict regulations being implemented by several governments across the globe to reduce pollution.
