Report Overview

The global rechargeable poly lithium-ion battery market size was valued at USD 124.5 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.0% from 2020 to 2027. The market is majorly driven by the growing demand for rechargeable poly lithium-ion battery in electric vehicles and grid storage as it is lightweight and offers high-energy density solutions. The rise in the registration of electric vehicles (EVs) and a simultaneous decrease in lithium-ion battery costs are estimated to augment market growth over the forecast period. Moreover, an increase in the sales of electric vehicles and a change in client preferences are likely to drive the market for rechargeable poly lithium-ion battery at the global level.

U.S. rechargeable poly lithium ion battery market size

The need for energy-efficient and eco-friendly products has led to a rising focus on electric vehicles (EV). Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) require a battery and combustion engine in tandem and have witnessed an upsurge in demand. The battery in EVs can be plugged in for charging into the electric grid or a designated public charging station. Since HEVs use both fuels as well as electric power, the battery can capture energy lost at the time of braking by using the electric motor.

These batteries are used in consumer electronic goods, which include laptops, hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), electric vehicles (EV), and digital cameras. Compared to conventional parts, the compacted size of the battery and its effectiveness have led to an upsurge in the product demand and penetration in the market. Lithium metal is integrally unstable at the time of charging, and hence it has shifted the research focus from metallic to non-metallic lithium ions. The energy efficiency of the non-metallic lithium-ion is double that of cadmium-nickel batteries.

The batteries having high energy density offer excellent low temperature, load, and cycle characteristics. As a result, it rapidly became a vital source of power for video and audio equipment, laptops, mobile phones, and other portable equipment.

Structure Insights

Based on the structure, the market is segregated into cylindrical and prismatic (flat rectangle) battery. The cylindrical battery led the market and accounted for 57.6% share in 2019. This product finds its major application in consumer electronics and electric vehicles.

Growing demand for consumer electronic devices is also a driving factor for the segment. Rising inclination toward consumer electronic devices, such as laptops, has led to high production of the product. Additionally, trends such as bringing your device have caused demand for the product. Form factors have been changing and demand for laptops and netbooks exists in the enterprise as well as personal space, giving a push to the market growth. Expansion and growth in disposable income in emerging countries of Asia Pacific are also likely to favor the market outlook.

The prismatic battery structure, also known as a flat rectangle battery, is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 7.1% from 2020 to 2027. The prismatic structure provides a space-saving solution for protecting a higher energy lithium polymer, which is used in tablets and ultra-thin notebooks.

Application Insights

Based on the application type, the market is segregated into electric vehicles, consumer electronics, power, industrial, and others. Electric vehicles dominated the market and accounted for a 32.2% share of the total revenue in 2019. Electric vehicles using rechargeable poly lithium-ion batteries have gained attention because of the need for environmentally friendly and energy-efficient products. Increasing customer inclination towards such kinds of batteries and growing sales of lithium-ion battery automobiles are expected to drive the segment. For instance, in 2017, Kodak launched a product named Promaster PLI-12B. This battery is lightweight and has a capacity of 1300 mAh.

Global rechargeable poly lithium ion battery market share

The consumer electronics application segment is expected to exhibit a moderate growth rate over the forecast period. This is attributed to the high reliability and durability of such batteries in electronic appliances, such as smartphones and laptops. The growing electronics industry in numerous countries, including Japan, South Korea, China, and Taiwan, is expected to upsurge the segment growth over the forecast period. The power application segment is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 7.8% from 2020 to 2027.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest revenue share of 33.0% share in 2019. It is expected to maintain its lead over the forecast period. This is attributed to high awareness among customers regarding sustaining an eco-friendly environment. The customers in this region can afford the product as they have high disposable earnings.

Increasing demand for tablets and mobiles across various countries, including India, China, Thailand, and Japan, is expected to enhance industry growth over the forecast period. An increase in lithium-ion battery production capacity in China by various companies, including Panasonic, Amperex Technology Limited, and LG Chem, along with increasing government subsidies for electric vehicles, is expected to create vast growth potential for the market over the projected period.

North America is likely to witness substantial growth over the forecast period due to growing consumer electronics and electric vehicle sales across countries, like the U.S. and Mexico. The ever-increasing demand for the product in mobiles owing to its enhanced efficiency and extended battery life is expected to drive the market. Europe and North America are significant regional markets on account of high consciousness regarding the need for energy-efficient batteries.
