The electric & hybrid EV market is projected to be the fastest-growing application segment over the forecast period.

Global Lithium-ion Battery market share and size, 2023

Growing awareness about the benefits of battery-operated vehicles and increasing fossil fuel prices, particularly in emerging regions like Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America, is projected to favor the segment growth. Li-ion batteries are also utilized for providing backup power supply for commercial buildings, data centers, and institutions. Also, lithium-ion battery is preferred for energy storage in residential solar PV systems. These factors will boost the growth of energy storage applications over the forecast period. Li-ion batteries are used in numerous industrial applications, such as power tools, cordless tools, marine equipment & machinery, agricultural machinery, industrial automation systems, aviation, military & defense, electronics, civil infrastructure, and oil & gas.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific held the largest market share of over 47.0% in 2023. The market in Europe is expected to witness steady growth over the forecast period owing to the increasing use of li-ion batteries in various sectors including medical, aerospace & defense, automotive, energy storage, and data communication & telecom. The market in Germany is expected to witness steady growth over the forecast period owing to the increasing use of Li-ion batteries in energy storage systems, EVs, and consumer electronics.

Lithium-ion Battery Market Trends, by Region, 2024 - 2030

Germany is the world’s leading market for energy storage systems as well as the development of renewable energies. Rapidly growing market for electric vehicles in Asia Pacific countries, such as India and China, is one of the major factors that is positively influencing the demand for Li-ion batteries. Rise in environmental concerns in China have resulted in the ban on conventional fossil fuel-powered scooters from all its major cities to reduce emission, leading to an increase in the sales of e-scooters.

Market Dynamics

The increasing adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) is catalyzing a remarkable surge in the global lithium-ion battery industry. As governments and industries worldwide prioritize the transition toward sustainable and environment-friendly transportation, the demand for EVs has experienced a substantial upswing. Lithium-ion batteries, renowned for their high energy density and efficiency, have emerged as the cornerstone of this automotive revolution. These batteries power electric vehicles, providing them with the necessary range and performance to compete with traditional internal combustion engine vehicles.

Lithium-ion battery industry is consequently witnessing unprecedented growth, fueled by pivotal role these batteries play in addressing both environmental concerns and the need for reliable energy storage solutions in automotive sector. This trend is poised to reshape the energy landscape, with lithium-ion batteries at the forefront of powering a cleaner and more sustainable future for transportation.

Rising demand for substitutes, including sodium nickel chloride batteries, lithium-air flow batteries, lead acid batteries, and solid-state batteries, in electric vehicles, energy storage, and consumer electronics is expected to restrain the growth of the lithium-ion battery industry over the forecast period. Lithium-air refers to the usage of oxygen as an oxidizer rather than a material. Result is that batteries are five times cheaper and lighter than lithium-ion and can make phones and cars last five times longer.

Moreover, the rising demand for flow batteries is likely to restrain growth of lithium-ion battery industry over the forecast period. Demand for sodium-nickel-chloride batteries is growing because their components, such as aluminum oxide, sodium chloride, and nickel, are readily available in the market and are less expensive to manufacture compared to lithium-ion batteries, which again is expected to hamper its market growth.

Product Insights

Based on products, the industry has been segregated into Lithium Cobalt Oxide (LCO), Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP), Lithium Nickel Cobalt Aluminum Oxide (NCA), Lithium Manganese Oxide (LMO), Lithium Titanate, and Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt (NMC). In terms of revenue, the LCO segment accounted for the largest market share of over 30.0% in 2023. High demand for LCO batteries in mobile phones, tablets, laptops, and cameras, on account of their high energy density and high safety level, is expected to augment segment growth over the forecast period. LFP batteries offer excellent safety and a long-life span to product.

Rising demand for lithium iron phosphate batteries in portable and stationary applications is expected to augment industry growth as they require high load currents and endurance. The rising demand for NCA on account of its high specific energy, specific power, and long-life span is expected to augment segment growth over the forecast period. NCA finds use in EV vehicles, medical devices, and industrial applications. Increasing consumption of lithium titanate in various applications including electric powertrains, streetlights, UPS, and solar-powered street lighting is likely to fuel segment growth over coming years.
