Lithium Ion Battery Materials: Including Cathode, Anode, Separator, Electrolyte – 2012-2022 Analysis and Forecasts

Lithium ion batteries are one of the most important technologies of the early 21st century. New markets for lithium ion batteries are emerging including hybrid and electric (xEV) batteries and, eventually, energy storage systems (ESS). Materials take up approximately 70% of lithium ion battery production costs. The market for materials used to make lithium ion batteries – cathode, anode, separator and electrolyte – currently boasts the greatest mid- to long-term growth potential in the electronic material industry.

The 170-page report provides and in-depth look at key topics ranging from lithium ion battery demand to key strategic issues, major opportunities and top players.

Thin-Film and Printed Battery Markets – 2012

By 2016, the value of products shipped that are powered by thin-film/printed potteries will reach $ 6.5 billion. Now is a good time to reappraise battery markets in an environment where marketing and applications development has become more important than technology development and the surviving firms are moving towards profitability. Value of smartcard products containing thin-film and printed batteries will register nearly $960 million by 2016. Wireless sensors also offer a significant opportunity for battery makers. The value of thin-film/printed battery containing sensor products will total $4 billion at the end of the forecast period.

Successful firms will be those with strong focus on being application specific. This new report address thin-film/printed battery applications including smartcards, sensors, RFID, smart packaging, disposable electronics/interactive media, cosmetic/pharmaceutical patches, medical implants, and semiconductor industry applications.
