How have industry leaders and start-ups positioned their pawns to address the glorious potential of silicon anode-based Li-ion batteries?

Report's Key Features:

  • PDF with > 180 slides
  • Excel file + Online database > 12,300 patent families
  • IP trends, including time evolution of published patents and countries of patent filings.
  • Ranking of main patent assignees.
  • Newcomers in the IP landscape.
  • Patent categorization by supply chain segments (anode materials, anode, binder, electrolyte, battery cell, etc.).
  • IP position of key players, and relative strength of their patent portfolios.
  • Current main technological approaches.
  • IP profiles of 17 key players, including IP dynamics, legal status and geographical coverage of patents, IP strategies, key patents and recent IP developments.
  • Excel database with all patents analyzed in the report, including patent segmentation and hyperlinks to an updated online database.

Knowmade's analysts have selected and analyzed more than 24,700 patents and patent applications grouped in more than 12,300 patent families (inventions) related to the whole supply chain of silicon anode-based Li-ion batteries (electrode materials, electrodes, electrolytes, battery cells). We have identified more than 1,800 different patent assignees involved in the Silicon anode patent landscape. The significant proportion of patents granted worldwide reflects a certain maturity of silicon anode technology for Li-ion batteries which is now being adopted by the industry. Nevertheless, numerous patent applications are still pending, meaning that R&D developments are still ongoing to solve technical issues related to silicon anode batteries

Leading IP players and IP newcomers across the supply chain

The report provides a clear overview of the most active patent applicants as well as a presentation of newcomers to the patent landscape. Furthermore, patent segmentation reveals the IP position of patent assignees by supply chain segments (anode material, electrode, battery cell) and highlights their key patent and recent IP developments for silicon anode materials (morphologies, compositions, manufacturing processes). Special attention has been paid to start-ups and Chinese ecosystem.

The silicon anode patent landscape was dominated by Japanese entities (Hitachi Chemical, Showa Denko, Mitsui, Panasonic/Sanyo, Sony, NEC, Toyota, etc.) and the two major South Korean battery companies (LG Chem, Samsung) until the early 2010s, but the IP activity from Chinese entities has exploded since 2015, representing today 45% of the patents.

The Chinese IP leaders are ATL, Guoxuan High-Tech, CATL, Shanshan Energy, COSMX, SVOLT, New Keli Chemical, EVE Energy and Yinlong Energy. Only a few Europeans (Bosch/Seeo, Nexeon and CEA) and Americans (Global Graphene, General Motors, Enevate and Amprius) have patents on silicon anodes for Li-ion batteries. The three main car manufacturers Toyota, General Motors and Nissan are present in the IP landscape.

We have identified more than 170 IP newcomers entering the patent landscape the last few years, including numerous start-ups: QingTao Energy Development, Sila Nanotechnologies, StoreDot, Wildcat Discovery Technology, Battflex, Coreshell Technologies, 3DBattery, QuantumScape, AnteoTech, Enwires, Blue Current, Graphenix Development, Cenate, SilLion (acquired by Tesla), OneD Materials, Enevate, Amprius, Nexeon, Nanospan, NanoGraf, Group14 Technologies, Qnovo, etc.

Focus on key players' patent portfolios

The report provides a detailed analysis of 17 key IP players and most promising IP newcomers: Samsung, LG Chem/LG Energy Solution, Panasonic/Sanyo, Murata/Sony, CATL, SVOLT, Toyota, Hitachi Chemical/Showa Denko, Shin-Etsu Chemical, Mitsubishi Chemical, BTR New Energy Material, Shanshan Energy, Nexeon, Amprius, StoreDot, Global Graphene, Guoxuan High-Tech. For each player, we summarize their IP portfolio, unveil their IP strategies by analyzing their key patents and recent IP developments.

Understand the technological trends

The patents have been categorized by supply chain segment (anode material, anode, binder, electrolyte, battery cell. The report comprises specific parts dedicated to silicon anode materials, silicon anode and battery cell, in which the key IP players, IP newcomers, key patents and recent IP development related to are analyzed. In this report, Knowmade highlights the main silicon-based materials which are envisioned in patents to improve the cyclability and electrochemical performances of silicon anode materials, increase the yields and reduce the cost and environment impact of the material synthesis.

Useful Excel patent database

The report also includes an Excel database with the 12,300+ patent families (inventions) analyzed in this study. This useful patent database allows for multi-criteria searches and includes patent publication numbers, hyperlinks to an updated online database (original documents, legal status, etc.), priority dates, title, abstract, patent assignees, patent's current legal status, and segments (anode material, anode, binder, battery cell, electrolyte, equipment, etc.).
