Key Takeaways

For many years now, lithium batteries have been a trusted power source in various industries. LPo batteries are used in applications such as smartphones, watches, computers and tablets. Lithium is used in lightweight marine batteries, solar batteries and electric vehicle batteries thus driving their potential recycling.
High Energy Density and Improved Safety offered by Lithium Cobalt Oxide batteries has driven their adoption. However their Short Lifespan, limited charging and discharging capacity limits their adoption.
Of the 180,000 metric tons of Li-ion batteries available for recycling worldwide in 2019, just a little over half were recycled. As lithium-ion battery production soars, so does interest in recycling. This drives the need for recycling as a co-industry for manufacturing.

Lithium Polymer Battery Market Segment Analysis - By Type

Gel Polymer batteries dominate the market with a share of 46.9% in 2023. Lithium metal could be a useful alternative to traditional graphite-based anodes for the development of next-generation batteries due to its high specific capacity and low electrochemical potential. However, an unstable interface and potentially dangerous lithium-dendrite growth impede the practical use of lithium-metal batteries. Lithium gel polymer battery provides high lithium-ion conductivity and effectively suppresses lithium dendrite growth. The fluorinated ionic liquid promotes stronger anion coordination and weaker cation coordination, and thus, enables favorable lithium transport properties.

Lithium Polymer Battery Market Segment Analysis - By End Use Industry

Automotive is the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 11.9% through the forecast period 2024-2030. Majority of electric cars are powered by wet lithium-ion batteries, which use liquid electrolytes to transfer energy around. Electric car makers anticipate for high energy density batteries to improve range of their vehicles along with increased lifespan. In April 2022, Innolith, a Swiss startup, claimed to have made the world’s first 1,000 Wh/kg rechargeable battery; while none of the other battery makers have reached even 500 Wh/kg energy density batteries. A 1,000 Wh/kg Lithium Polymer Battery Recycling would be capable to power an electric car upto 1,000 km. The company has planned a pilot production in Germany, however, availability is expected after 2023. The company uses inorganic substances instead of organic solvents in its batteries, for better stability and to be flammable-free. Panasonic provides batteries to Tesla delivering power up to 530 km in premium models. The batteries require climate control during extreme hot and cold temperatures. Thus, the vehicle powered exclusively by a battery, the energy to optimize its battery temperature, is drawn from the battery itself, which hampers the battery performance. The automotive sector has witnessed a drop of more than 150% in the price per kWh in 6 years. Today, Tesla battery pack costs around $100 per kWh, and General Motors’ Chevrolet Bolt NMC battery pack is analyzed to cost around $125 per kWh showcasing significant price decline driving the adoption.

Lithium Polymer Battery Market Segment Analysis - By Geography

APAC region holds the largest market share of 42% in 2023. The APAC region driven by China is projected to drive market growth. China surpassed the US in 2022 to become the world leader in electric cars production, continuing to build a potential domestic market for battery makers like CATL through 2023 India is one of the fastest-growing countries globally for lithium-ion batteries. The country does not have reserves of the required raw materials for the production of the lithium-ion batteries on its own, and the cells and batteries are being imported from other countries (China, Vietnam, and Thailand). They are then either assembled or directly sold in the domestic market.
In order to counter the manufacturing issue, the National Institution for Transforming India (NITI) Aayog rolled out proposals in February 2022 to provide subsidies for investors setting up giga-scale lithium-ion manufacturing facilities in India. Between 2024-2030, the NITI Aayog is likely to invite bids for establishing production lines with 50 GWh of annual output capacity. Therefore, the indigenous manufacturing of lithium-ion batteries is expected to grow over the forecast period.

Therefore, owing to the above factors, Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the lithium-ion battery market during the forecast period. A Lithium Ion/Polymer battery consists of 4 main components namely- anode, electrolytes, separators, and cathode. China manufactures around 65% of the anodes, 64% of the electrolytes, 44% of the separators, and 39% of the cathodes.

Lithium Polymer Battery Market Drivers

Investments in EVs Will Positively Impact Market Growth in The Future:
With the rising popularity of emission-free battery and hybrid electric vehicles, industry participants are likely to expand their investments in EVs. Furthermore, technology improvements have prompted prominent corporations to expand their reach into previously unexplored markets. Notably, the ubiquity of rapid car battery chargers for increased battery performance will augur well for the growth of the global automotive battery market. Furthermore, increased electrification of commercial vehicles in mature economies will fuel industry growth. Stakeholders are also likely to increase their output as a result of strong government initiatives encouraging the adoption of EVs. In February 2022, The Ontario government-backed an investment of $18.5 million by car components producer Ventra Group. This investment will allow the Ontario economy to boom as a result of domestic auto manufacturers' regional development programs. Furthermore, corporations anticipate that this investment will be used to build a flex-ion battery innovation center, which will boost employment and the economy.

Demand for fully automated grid and smart meters will further bolster the UPS Battery Market:
For socio-economic development, energy is the foundation block. A significant gap has been identified between installed energy generation capacity, demand for energy and the population growth rate across various parts of globe. To cope with the pressure of growing population, many countries across world has adopted smart metering programs and full automated grids.. Smart meters generate petabytes of data over current drawn, readings, power factor, damage, pilferage and other parameters. Smart meters are also integrated with the ICT architecture to send signal or readings directly to the grid. So, if there is a power failure, the meter won’t be able to send any notifications to utility. Thus, there is the need for backup energy supply. So growing smart grids and smart meters will further bolster the need for Lithium Polymer Battery Market.

Lithium Polymer Battery Market Challenges

A dip in Automotive Production Amid the Pandemic may limit the market growth
The industry has been disrupted as a result of a drop in automotive manufacturing and the closure of transportation services. The suspension of automotive battery production, in particular, didn't seem to work well for the global market outlook. However, the removal of prohibitions and strong government policies may lead to the selling of batteries. Despite the fact that the emergence of COVID-19 halted global production and sales of new automobiles, the impact on electric vehicles was good. Component production, on the other hand, was negatively impacted, and tiny Tier II and Tier III manufacturers suffered liquidity concerns. Major automotive events throughout the world were canceled or postponed, including the 2022 Geneva motor show, the Qatar Grand Prix, the New York International Auto Show, and the Australian Grand Prix. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Ford, PSA Group, Volkswagen Group factories in Europe, Ducati, Tesla factory in California, BMW Group European factories, Rolls-Royce, and General Motors are among the worldwide automakers that have halted production owing to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic. This hampered the market growth for lithium polymer batteries.

Enhanced control of beam shape and diameter, MCT3 Cutting Head, and a new MAZATROL Smooth Lx CNC control system to ensure optimal performance on a wide range of materials which greatly eases versatile operations on the workpiece that will ultimately result in widespread adoption. Such developments will positively affect the growth of this market.
