The global lithium-ion battery market size was valued USD 36.90 billion in 2020 and is projected to grow from USD 44.49 billion in 2021 to USD 193.13 billion by 2028, with an expected compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 23.3% during the forecast period. Asia-Pacific dominated the global market with a share of 46.34% in 2020.

The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with the global market witnessing a negative impact on demand across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the market exhibited a lower growth of about 6.2% in 2020 than 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

Li-ion battery, also called as LIB, is a rechargeable battery used in laptops, cellphones, and hybrid & electric cars. Li-ion battery usage is growing across various applications owing to its lightweight, high energy density to increase battery life and ability to recharge.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Lithium-ion Battery Market to Hamper Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic affected growth of this market during 2020. The outbreak of COVID-19 has restricted the supply of batteries. The key battery component is mainly available in Asia Pacific, but the pandemic has over-exposed the dependency of raw materials on the region. Lithium and cobalt serve key functions in battery cathodes and electrolytes. China dominates the production of elements and controls approximately 80% of the global supply chain of these materials. Many countries across the world have imposed travel restrictions, which have impacted the flow of raw materials and many power plants were shut down worldwide, which impacted the market.

Growing Sales of Electric Vehicles to Mitigate Climate Change

Electric vehicles have reduced the climate impact when compared to internal combustion engines. Government bodies across the globe are approaching a greener and pollution-free mobility as passenger and commercial electric vehicles are changing trends for future transportation, which will certainly boost lithium-ion battery market growth. Electric vehicles companies, such as Tesla, have implemented the usage of these batteries in cars. Europe has strictly imposed emissions regulations & norms and implemented major public electric mobility transportation projects.

Mounting Renewable Energy Projects is Propelling Growth of the Market

The growing interest toward maintaining a clean environment has propelled the growth of renewable energy projects, such as photovoltaic installation and nuclear power plants, and wind energy projects are propelling the growth of li-ion batteries. In addition, the growing acceptance of li-ion batteries equipment in the medical sector is also supporting the growth.


Increased Adoption of Batteries in Power Grid and Energy Storage Systems Play a Key Role in Market

Implementing strict government regulation to regulate rising pollution levels enhances the industries to use these batteries. The power industry is working to produce renewable energy and store it for the future. Low cost, low-self discharge rate, and minimal installation space are some of the key factors driving the adoption of Li-ion batteries in smart grid and energy storage systems. Since these batteries are more resistant to high temperatures, they are ideal for use in remote areas and thermal control applications. For example, in July 2021, Siemens Smart Infrastructure and German Grid Operator company was planning to develop a 100 MW lithium-ion battery storage facility.

Declining Prices of Li-ion Batteries Have Catalyzed Adoption in Various Sector

The major factor restraining the adoption of these batteries from 1990 was its prices. Li-ion batteries contain many components, and the main component of any LIB was its cell, which accounts for 50% of its cost. However, recent developments by LIB manufacturing companies have helped in declining prices of these batteries, which will further reduce in future. The declining prices of components and the adoption of advanced technologies to increase battery capacity are key factors that increase the adoption of lithium-ion batteries.


Growing Demand for Other Batteries is Hindering Market Growth

The increasing demand for other batteries, such as lead-acid batteries, sodium- nickel chloride, flow batteries, and lithium-air batteries, in consumer electronics, electric vehicles, and energy storage systems is projected to hinder the growth of these batteries.
