Li-ion Batteries Market, 2028

10/20/2017, 2:31 PM (Source: GlobeNewswire)

Dublin, Oct. 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Li-ion Batteries 2018-2028" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering

EVs will turn into a $730B market by 2027, and many steps in the new value chain are up for grabs. Because of this (and to curb urban pollution),

China has set up a regulatory framework from which new automotive giants like BYD, SAIC, and Microvast are emerging; the US relies on the entrepreneurship of visionaries like Elon Musk and its Tesla venture; Japan is still home to the best-selling EV brands like Toyota and Nissan; Europe, on the other hand, is heavily reconsidering its diesel-friendly policies, by pivoting around EVs and trying to retain its tradition in automotive products.

Within this grand scheme, LIBs play a central role, since they can make up to 50% of the total cost of an electric vehicle. Gigafactories and megafactories are being planned and built around the globe to satisfy an ever-growing market demand. At the same time, mining companies are working around the clock to expand capacity for a few key minerals, like lithium, cobalt, and graphite.

The signature 10-year forecast runs from 2018 to 2028. The forecasts include battery deployment figures in GWh, millions of units, and market value ($B). An unparalleled level of granularity is offered by splitting LIBs over 43 EV categories (land, sea, and air EVs), as well as drones, consumer electronics, wearables, and stationary storage. The LIB market for EVs alone is predicted to reach $125B by 2028.
