Report: Declining Costs Of Lithium-Ion Batteries To Boost Transportation Sector Through 2019

Originally published on EV Obsession.

The transportation sector of the global lithium-ion battery market will be boosted to a fair degree by declining lithium-ion battery costs through the year 2019, according to a new report from Technavio.

The new report — titled Global Li-ion Battery Market in Transportation Sector 2015-2019 — predicts that the compound annual growth rate for the global lithium-ion battery market in the transportation sector for 2015–2019 will be higher than 21%.

technavio-logoThe new report from Technavio “highlights the rapid decrease in cost of lithium-ion batteries, which is driven by the increasing use of lithium-ion batteries in battery electric vehicles (BEVs), plug-in hybrids (PHEVs), HEVs, UPS systems, forklifts, consumer electronic devices, and backup power supplies.”

“With the decrease in cost of lithium-ion batteries, manufacturers will increasingly be able to leverage economies of scale with growth in market size and production scales,” noted Faisal Ghaus, Vice President of Technavio.

The new report + analysis from Technavio also puts a light on the (future) creation of next-gen batteries for various electronic devices and/or vehicles — which is primarily down to growing interest in, and demand for, high-performance lithium-ion batteries.

“The lithium-ion battery market is steadily shifting to high-energy silicon electrodes in place of conventional graphite ones, as these batteries offer long-lasting energy for laptops and EVs,” added Ghaus.

“The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global Li-ion battery market for the transportation sector for the period 2015–2019. The market has been segmented on the basis of geography and application. Technavio’s report, Global Li-ion Battery Market for Transportation Sector 2015–2019, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the Americas, APAC, and EMEA; it also covers the market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.”

Interestingly, the report also (apparently) covers the subject of potential competition form aluminum batteries.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
