Market for Lithium Ion Batteries Expected to Reach $43 Billion by 2020 has announced the addition of Amadee + Company’s new report "The Future Of Lithium Ion Batteries: Including Consumer, Alternative Energy Vehicles (Hevs, Phevs, Electric cars), And Electric Power Storage Applications- Technologies, Markets, Competitors And Opportunities: 2010-2020 Analysis And Forecasts" to their collection of Electric Vehicles market reports.

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 EV (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.
