Cumulative Sales of Li-ion Batteries Globally will Exceed $629.22 Billion by 2025
The global Lithium-ion battery market by application (grid + energy storage, automotive, industrial, and consumer electronics) and by region (North America, Europe, APAC, and Rest-of-the-world) is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.9% during 2018-2025. Market growth is fuelled by rising demand for energy storage across the globe, growing electric vehicles (EV) adoption, and the demand for industrial power tools and electric forklifts in developed regions. However, safety concerns surrounding Li-ion batteries will challenge the growth of the market in the short term. Technological advancements are directed towards addressing this challenge, which includes alternate chemistries and solid-state batteries research.
APAC is the largest market, globally. Rising EV adoption in China, the global market leader for EV, is expected to drive the demand for Li-ion batteries throughout the forecast period. Demand from storage applications in key countries, including South Korea, Japan, India, and Australia, is likely to fuel the growth of the batteries market during the forecast period.
In 2018, the automotive segment accounted for 38.3% of the total market, driven by the growing demand for EV, including passenger vehicles, trucks, and buses, globally. China, Norway, the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, and the Netherlands are the key countries driving demand for EV batteries. Many production facilities are expected to be commissioned in Europe during the forecast period to address the growing demand for EV batteries in the region.
Asian participants will dominate the market. LG Chemical, Panasonic, Samsung, and CATL are the top 4 battery manufacturers. Their aggressive target for production capacity expansion will assist in retaining their market-leading positions throughout the forecast period. Installed production capacity of the top 10 suppliers will increase from 150 GWh in 2018 to about 740 GWh by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 25.6%.
Solid-state batteries will see an increase in adoption beyond 2025. Solid-state battery start-ups have emerged as a result of a lot of investments from various automotive giants going into these companies. Such growth is attributed to their enhanced safety features, higher voltage and output than existing batteries, and the ability to operate at both low and high temperature conditions.
