Comparison Of Global Activities

This report concerns lithium-based rechargeable batteries. Predominantly, they are lithium-ion but we also cover alternatives usually with no intercalation and using lithium metal. All serious analysts predict that these will be responsible for the majority of expenditure on rechargeable batteries over the coming decade, notably in the lithium-ion form. It is therefore important for those making, designing in and using such batteries to understand the variations emerging and their potential for success or failure. Unfortunately, even comprehensive listings of manufacturers and intending manufacturers are hard to find. This report clarifies the situation, revealing the product chemistry, strategy and electric vehicle success of manufacturers and intending manufacturers.

The lithium-ion "Li-ion" battery business (most of the batteries covered in this report) is growing very rapidly to many tens of billions of dollars yearly, thanks to billions of dollars continuing to be invested in the industry. Their use is widening well beyond e-readers, tablets, laptops and mobile phones with vehicles being particularly important for the future, mainly READ MORE >
