Jan. 24, 2019
CHICAGO—According to the new market research report "Lithium Ion Battery Market by Type (Li-NMC, LFP, LCO, LTO, LMO, NCA), power Capacity (0 to 3000mAh, 3000mAh to 10000mAh, 10000mAh to 60000mAh), Industry (Consumer Electronics, Automotive, Medical, Industrial), and Region - Global Forecast to 2024", published by MarketsandMarkets, the overall Lithium Ion Battery Market is expected to grow from USD 37.4 billion in 2018 to USD 92.2 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 16.2%. Factors such as increasing demand for plug-in vehicles, growing need for automation and battery-operated material-handling equipment in industries, growing demand for smart devices and other industrial goods, and high requirement of lithium-ion batteries for various industrial applications are driving the growth of the lithium ion battery market.Lithium cobalt oxide (LCO) held the largest size of lithium ion battery market during the forecast period

Lithium cobalt oxide (LCO) held the largest size, in terms of value, of the lithium ion battery market in 2018. The market of LCO battery type is the largest due to its application in consumer electronics, which have the major share of the overall lithium ion battery market. High energy density acts as a power source for consumer electronics. The energy density of any LCO battery is very high, but it has low stability and power density. Its life cycle is not as long as its counterparts, whereas the cost of manufacturing these batteries is fairly reasonable owing to the use of graphite carbon and cobalt.

Power capacity range of 3,000-10,000 mAh is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period 

Power capacity range of 3,000-10,000 mAh is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2018 and 2024. The market for this range is expected to grow at a high CAGR due to the fact that it covers a majority of industries such as consumer electronics, electric vehicle, power tools, and aerospace & defense. This makes it more desirable in near future for numerous applications. Its heavy power capacity makes it useful for industries such as in electrical vehicles and industrial uses. The increasing market for consumer electronics and smartphones has increased the need for batteries with high power capacity that can keep the device running for long hours and at the same time giving an optimum experience of the device due to large screen and power back up service.

APAC held the largest size of the lithium ion battery market during the forecast period

APAC held the largest size of the lithium ion battery market in 2018. APAC is home to a large number of semiconductor and electronics companies and increasing trend to implement high power battery and safety with low energy wastage are expected to open up new market opportunities for lithium ion battery in APAC. China and India are the fastest growing economies in the world. Demand for lithium ion batteries is very high in Asia Pacific owing to the ever-increasing population and its need for consumer electronics. The market in China is expected to grow mainly because of the huge number of lithium ion battery manufacturing companies in China and Japan. A major share of lithium ion batteries are manufactured in APAC-specifically in China, Japan, and South Korea.

Key players operating in the lithium ion battery market include BYD Company (China), LG Chem (South Korea), Panasonic (Japan), Samsung SDI (South Korea), BAK Group (China), GS Yuasa (Japan), Hitachi (Japan), Johnson Controls (Ireland), Toshiba (Japan), Lithium Werks (The Netherlands), CALB (China), Saft Groupe, (France), VARTA Storage (Germany), Farasis Energy (California), and Sila Nanotechnologies (California).
