Lithium ion batteries were first proposed in the 1970' s and commercially developed in the 1990' s. Since then, the market for lithium ion batteries has grown to $11 billion (2010) and is expected to reach $43 billion by 2020.
Up to now, the lithium ion battery market has been predominantly consumer (90% as of today) but new, diversified applications including xEV (Electric Vehicles/Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles/Hybrid Electric Vehicles) and ESS (Electrical Storage Systems) are expected to provide the new growth engines.
As a result, the lithium ion market landscape will undergo a profound change, bringing huge increases in demand, profits in the billions of US dollars and competitive upheaval.
