Dublin, July 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Batteries for Stationary/Industrial, Automotive and Consumer Electronics - Types, Materials, Applications, New Developments, Industry Structure and Global Markets" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Lithium-ion (Li-ion) has become the dominant rechargeable battery chemistry for consumer electronics devices and is poised to become commonplace for industrial, transportation and power-storage applications. This chemistry is different from previously popular rechargeable battery chemistries (e.g., nickel metal hydride, nickel cadmium and lead acid) in a number of ways. From a technological standpoint, because of high energy density, the demand for Li-ion rechargeable batteries has been driven by the rapid growth of electronic portable equipment, such as cellular phones, laptops and digital cameras.

In addition, market demand has been boosted by the expectation that rechargeable batteries will play a large role in alternative energy technology, as well as in electric bikes (e-bikes), electric vehicles (EVs), hybrid vehicles, and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), and stationary energy storage applications such as medical, telecommunication, solar power storage, unmanned vehicles, remote stations, telecom sector, data center and remote location batteries.

Study Goal and Objectives

This study focuses on rechargeable Li-ion batteries, providing market data about the size and growth of the battery application segments and new developments, and it includes a detailed patent analysis, company profiles and industry trends. The goal of this report is to provide a detailed and comprehensive multi-client study of the market in North America, Europe, Japan, China, India, Korea and the rest of the world (ROW) for these batteries and potential business opportunities.

The objectives include thorough coverage of the underlying economic issues driving the use of the rechargeable Li-ion battery, as well as assessments of new advanced batteries that are being developed. Another important objective is to provide realistic market data and forecasts. This report provides the most thorough and up-to-date assessment that can be found anywhere on the subject. The study also provides extensive quantification of the many important facets of market developments in rechargeable Li-ion batteries all over the world. This, in turn, contributes to the determination of strategic responses which companies may adopt in order to compete in this dynamic market.

Scope and Format

Modern Li-ion batteries hold more than twice as much energy by weight as the first commercial versions sold by Sony in 1991 - and are ten times cheaper.

For the stationary segment, users and manufacturers are looking for new waves of opportunity in rechargeable Li-ion battery chemistries for higher energy density in a given space for more run time.

The reason for exploring this stationary/industrial market segment is to project the growth of the market for stationary mega-scale lithium battery energy storage. Power trading through a frequency regulation market is emerging as a mechanism for preventing instability in the power grid that might result from the feed-in of increasingly and widely used renewable energy sources, such as wind power and photovoltaic generation.

For automotives, the next five years will clearly be a transition period from the petro-car to the electric car. This transition will feature an interesting horse race between different lithium battery manufacturers offering cost effective power solutions, ease of recharging, guaranteed long life and safety of device or equipment where the battery is used.

The reason for looking at the automotive market segment is to project demand for rechargeable Li-ion batteries for efficient and eco-friendly vehicles. This is linked to the depletion of fossil fuel and oil supply combined with global warming, pollution and greenhouse gas emissions worldwide, which have resulted in a growing demand for efficient and eco-friendly vehicles. Responding to this need, governments of many nations provide various incentives for utilizing electric vehicles, such as reduced electric taxi fares, tax benefits, and subsidies for electric vehicle purchasers. Many parts of Europe have banned the use of vehicles operated by conventional combustion engines within the public transportation sector and are focusing on switching to electrical or hybrid vehicles. Several commercial projects are underway as well.

In the consumer electronics segment, Li-ion battery users and manufacturers are looking for new opportunities in rechargeable ion battery chemistries for higher energy density in a given space, for increased run time. In this segment, rapid growth in the use of Li-ion rechargeable batteries in electronic portable equipment, such as cellular phones, laptops and digital cameras is projected.

Current battery technologies are limited, making plug-in hybrid or all-electric cars prohibitively costly and insufficient to meet consumer demands. Long-term, fundamental research in electrical energy storage will be needed to accelerate the pace of scientific discoveries and to see transformational advances that bridge the gaps in cost and performance, separating the current technologies and those required for future utility and transportation needs.

Medium-sized energy storage modules using Li-ion batteries for powering telecom towers, power tools, data centers and remote location battery applications have been highlighted, with construction details. Industry dynamics, alliances and sales agreements between cell manufacturers and electric carmakers/OEMs impacting the market place are a special focus. Current markets and market potential across North America, Europe, Japan, China, Korea and the rest of the world have been quantified.
