Reasons For Doing The Study
The lithium battery industry has recovered from the “exciting” period of 2008 through 2011. During that pivotal period, the U.S., Europe and Asia kicked off several unprecedented (and expensive) lithium battery and electric vehicle subsidies, the number of well-funded lithium battery companies skyrocketed, several new giant lithium battery-using consumer products were introduced—and then the global recession swept away these gains.

- First, several of lithium batteries’ largest and highest growth markets entered a period of retraction. Even as “must-have” portable products, like smartphones (initially iPhones but then equally popular competitors) and then the whole tablet approach to portable computing and entertainment grew in popularity, battery-powered portable computer and cell phone sales fell.

- Meanwhile the newly elected administration of President Barack Obama announced plans to fund billions of dollars in U.S. lithium battery development. The administration canceled billions of dollars’ worth of funding for Bush-era fuel-cell-and hydrogen-power-vehicle development funding. The Obama Administration also implemented new Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) fuel-efficiency standards that will provide a significant incentive for wider HEV and EV use. By 2012, the results were coming in, and they were not encouraging. Several high-profile, well-funded lithium battery makers, lithium battery material producers and electric vehicle makers were bankrupt or even ceased operation. Some of these subsidized
companies were sold to non-U.S. firms. Two leading would-be plug-in sources (GM and Chrysler) filed for bankruptcy.

- Since then, U.S. gasoline prices peaked, fell, peaked and have fallen once more. Eight years ago, prices topped $4 per gallon, then after the recession progressed, they fell to less than $2 per gallon, then stabilized at over $3 a gallon. Then in late 2014, just as HEV and EV sales were promising, an unanticipated oil glut drove down oil prices too as low as $40 a barrel (from over $120) and gasoline prices to as low as $1.80.

- Due to global recessionary forces and some safety issues, hybrid vehicle sales faltered, then stabilized, and then resumed robust growth; however, not with lithium batteries in most cases. In fact, there are major concerns about the future of developmental plug-in EVs.

- In 2008 and 2009, there were significant concerns about whether there were enough lithium reserves to meet lithium battery demand. Since 2012, this has turned out to be a non-issue. This is partially due to lower than predicted demand and partially because of a number of “emerging” producers that are beginning to develop lithium reserves in China, Canada, Australia and elsewhere (from Wyoming to Ireland). Meanwhile, the Bolivian government began developing its vast Bolivian lithium salt deposits and even building small amounts of lithium batteries.

- Even though U.S. and European lithium battery manufacturing is underway, most lithium batteries are still currently manufactured in Japan, South Korea or China. Lithium battery material companies include South American, U.S. and Canadian companies. Most lithium salts currently come from Chile, but Bolivia has vast reserves that could soon be developed. Lithium battery research and development (R&D) takes place worldwide, but especially in the Far East, the U.S., Europe (especially France) and Canada. At the same time, there are an increasing number of multinational lithium battery partnerships, including partnerships between U.S. and European or Far East companies.

- Most of these developments were considered likely five years ago. Previous forecasts and analyses either did not consider them or treated these factors as relatively unlikely pessimistic or optimistic scenarios.

Originally, the term “battery” referred to a number of individual electrochemical cells; therefore, a single cell, like the familiar cylindrical flashlight power source, was not considered a battery at all. Now a battery refers to any electrochemical storage mechanism.

A battery has five components: two active elements (a cathode and an anode), a separator, an electrolyte medium for carrying ions between the reactants through the separator and a container. One reactant or electrode has a net negative charge and is called the anode. In lithium batteries, the anode material is lithium, or in a few cases, a lithium-aluminum alloy. In some cases, the anode is metallic lithium; in other instances, including lithium-ion cells, the anode consists of an ionic lithium compound.

The other reactant electrode, with a positive charge, is called the cathode. The cathode usually is a metallic compound. The electrolyte is usually similar to the cathode to promote ion transfer. Finally, the battery is contained in a case that provides dimensional stability and a positive and negative electrode or battery cap for discharging (or recharging) the cell. A number of separate electrochemical cells are combined within the same case to create a battery.

Until about 25 years ago, the battery market was seen as mature, with demand closely related to sales of either automobiles or various consumer products. Since then, improved lithium batteries have helped spark a dramatic change in this relationship. Just as lithium batteries replaced nickel-based and primary batteries for many applications, traditional lithium-ion battery designs are beginning to be replaced by advanced lithium-ion chemistries like lithium phosphate, lithium-iron phosphate, lithium titanate, lithium-sulfur and lithium-polymer systems.

Lithium batteries were developed in the 1960s and were first commercialized in the early 1970s, but did not receive wide consumer use until 1981. There are now six general commercial and developmental lithium battery designs, nearly 30 commercialized lithium-containing electrode couples and more than 1,000 specific designs. The latest generation of lithium batteries includes very large cells suitable for powering vehicles or storing significant amounts of utility power as well as very small thin-film cells capable of powering micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS).

Improved lithium batteries have allowed the commercialization of entire new classes of portable products, including portable computer computers, smartphones and tablet computers. Lithium batteries have now been used in commercial plug-in electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). During the 1990s, lithium batteries posted double-digit market growth. Between 2000 and 2005, there was a period of steady sales or incremental growth (as opposed to the double-digit growth of the 1990s). Lithium battery unit sales then picked up through the 2008 financial crash. In mid-2008, sales and market value fell due to the global recession.

The market has now recovered and is once more growing incrementally. Predictions that a new era of double-digit growth will soon take place depend on the fortunes of the electric vehicle market, and to a lesser extent, the large stationary utility power markets. Companies are now preparing to expand production to support both these markets, even as sharply reduced oil prices remove some of the economic incentives for EVs.
