The global lithium iron phosphate battery market size was USD 8.37 billion in 2020 and is projected to grow from USD 10.12 billion in 2021 to USD 49.96 billion by 2028 at a CAGR of 25.6% during the forecast period 2021-2028. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with LifePO4 batteries witnessing a negative demand across all the regions. Based on our analysis, the market exhibited a lower growth of about 6.2% in 2020 than average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The rise in CAGR is attributable to this market demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

Lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery is a lithium-ion rechargeable battery capable of charging and discharging at high speed compared to other types of batteries. LFP battery packs provide power density, high voltage, high energy density, long life cycle, low discharge rate, less heating, and increased safety; therefore, various batteries are adopted by multiple applications. The growth is mainly attributed to the improved demand for LifePO4 batteries in passenger cars, buses, low-speed- electric vehicles, and hybrid electric vehicles due to their safety and low cost.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery Market to Dent Production

The outbreak of COVID-19 has hampered the growth of LFP batteries. The growth of LFP batteries is declining due to the pandemic, which has restricted the supply of batteries and other critical components due to severe disruptions in business and the global economy. The key components of batteries are mainly available in the Asia Pacific, especially in China. The country has suffered through massive lockdown owing to the pandemic, impacting the battery manufacturers in Europe and North America.

Rising Trend of Electric Vehicles and Hybrid-Electric Vehicles Owing to Increasing Fuel Prices will Propel the Adoption of LFP Battery

The demand for Electric Vehicles (EV) and Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) is increasing due to the rise in fuel prices and incentives rolled out by government bodies. The governments across various countries are encouraging the usage of e-mobility to cut down the dependency on crude oil and reduce vehicle pollutions. In 2020, Tesla Inc., an American electric vehicles company, announced that they would be using LifePO4 batteries, moving away from their traditional Nickel-based batteries.

Growing Renewable Energy Projects to Support Growth of LFP Batteries

The rising awareness towards maintaining a clean environment has propelled the growth of renewable energy projects, such as photovoltaic installation, on-grid solar power backup systems, and nuclear power plants; wind energy projects are driving the growth of LifePO4 batteries. In addition, the growing usage of energy storage devices is supporting the expansion of LFP batteries.


Increased Adoption of Batteries in Power Grid and Energy Storage Systems to Play a Critical Role

Implementing strict government regulation to regulate rising pollution levels encourages the industries to use LFP batteries. Worldwide the power industry is working towards producing renewable energy and storing it for the future. Low cost, low-self discharge rate, and minimal installation space are critical factors driving the adoption of LFP batteries in grids and energy storage devices. Since these batteries are more resistant to high temperatures, they are ideal for use in remote areas and thermal control applications.

Falling Prices of Lithium-Ion Batteries Have Catalyzed Adoption in Various Sector

The primary factor restraining the adoption of lithium-ion batteries since 1990 was their prices. Lithium-ion batteries contain many components, and the main element of any lithium iron phosphate battery is its cell, which accounts for 50% of its cost. However, recent developments by lithium-ion manufacturing companies have helped in declining prices of batteries, which will further reduce in the future. The reduction in costs of components and the adoption of advanced technologies to increase battery capacity are key factors that boost the growth and adoption of lithium-ion batteries.


Growing Demand for Other Batteries Is Hindering the 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 expected to hinder the growth of LFP batteries. In addition, the introduction of new energy devices, such as flywheel batteries, is also restraining the market growth.


By Type Analysis

Portable Batteries Set To Lead Market with Rising Demand from Automotive Sector

Based on type, the LFP battery market is bifurcated into portable and stationary batteries. The portable batteries segment will dominate the market share in 2020 due to the growing adoption of these batteries in the automotive sector.
