"Actionable Insights to Fuel Your Growth"
Battery research is advancing at a rapid pace and Lithium-Ion Battery (LIB) is pioneering in the field of battery market across the world. Lithium is the lightest of all metals, has the greatest electrochemical potential and provide the largest specific energy per weight. It is a rechargeable battery in which lithium ion moves from a negative electrode to a positive electrode during discharge and vice-versa during recharge. The energy density of lithium-ion is typically twice that of the standard nickel-cadmium.
There is no scheduled cycling is required to prolong the battery life as the self-discharge is less than half compared to nickel-cadmium, making LIB for modern fuel gauge application. Rechargeable, LIB is primarily found where their high energy and power density as well as their superior cycling ability create value which is the most important criteria for electric and hybrid vehicles. They are also used as electrical energy storage technology of choice for large scale renewable energy farms in which smoothing function is required.

The classification of Lithium-Ion Battery is based on the type, capacity, and application. Li-cobalt possesses high specific energy which makes it a popular choice for mobile phones, laptops, and digital cameras. The electric vehicle companies like Tesla used to prefer Lithium Titanate and Lithium Nickel Cobalt Aluminium Oxide for its cars and it is also suitable for electric grid storage. Most of the electric gadgets such as mobile phones, power banks, cameras, etc. are equipped with power storage up to 10,000mAH whereas for the portable power storage system and automotive industry use storage capacity about 10,000mAH to 50,000mAH. In defence, submarines, mining, etc. where large scale energy output require with space constraint, LIB provide above 50,000mAH power capacity with relatively low space power backups.
The international community is approaching towards greener and pollution free mobility as the passenger and commercial electric vehicles changing trend for future transportation which pitching up the market growth. Europe has imposed strict regulation and norms on emission and implementing major projects for public electric mobility transportation. Lithium-ion battery provides high power and energy density with great flexibility and majorly find its application in aerospace, mining, defence, etc. for primary energy source and these sectors contribute large share in the market which makes LIB touch new heights in the market.
Lithium batteries are expensive to manufacture compared to conventional batteries and also it is susceptible to high temperature caused by overheating or overcharging which inhibit the growth of LIB market. The acceptability of any system depends upon its cost and as per the current scenario, LIB is highly expensive which inhibit its universal adoption.
The notable players in the lithium-ion battery manufacturing are Panasonic, Toshiba, LG Chemical, Tesla, A123 Systems, eCobalt Solutions, BYD, Contemporary Amperex Technology, Johnson Control, Samsung SDI Co., Ltd., Hitachi Global, and Shenzhen BAK Battery CO., Ltd.
