Scope and Format

Modern Li-ion batteries hold more than twice as much energy by weight as the first commercial versions sold by Sony in 1991 - and are ten times cheaper.

For the stationary segment, users and manufacturers are looking for new waves of opportunity in rechargeable Li-ion battery chemistries for higher energy density in a given space for more run time.

The reason for exploring this stationary/industrial market segment is to project the growth of the market for stationary mega-scale lithium battery energy storage. Power trading through a frequency regulation market is emerging as a mechanism for preventing instability in the power grid that might result from the feed-in of increasingly and widely used renewable energy sources, such as wind power and photovoltaic generation.

For automotives, the next five years will clearly be a transition period from the petro-car to the electric car. This transition will feature an interesting horse race between different lithium battery manufacturers offering cost effective power solutions, ease of recharging, guaranteed long life and safety of device or equipment where the battery is used.

The reason for looking at the automotive market segment is to project demand for rechargeable Li-ion batteries for efficient and eco-friendly vehicles. This is linked to the depletion of fossil fuel and oil supply combined with global warming, pollution and greenhouse gas emissions worldwide, which have resulted in a growing demand for efficient and eco-friendly vehicles. Responding to this need, governments of many nations provide various incentives for utilizing electric vehicles, such as reduced electric taxi fares, tax benefits, and subsidies for electric vehicle purchasers. Many parts of Europe have banned the use of vehicles operated by conventional combustion engines within the public transportation sector and are focusing on switching to electrical or hybrid vehicles. Several commercial projects are underway as well.

In the consumer electronics segment, Li-ion battery users and manufacturers are looking for new opportunities in rechargeable ion battery chemistries for higher energy density in a given space, for increased run time. In this segment, rapid growth in the use of Li-ion rechargeable batteries in electronic portable equipment, such as cellular phones, laptops and digital cameras is projected.

Methodology and Information Sources

The research methodology was qualitative in nature and employed a triangulative approach, which aids validity. Initially, a comprehensive and exhaustive search of the literature on small-, medium- and large-format rechargeable Li-ion batteries was conducted. These secondary sources included journals and related books, trade literature, marketing literature, other product/promotional literature, annual reports, analysts’ reports and other publications.

In a second phase, a series of semi-structured, fact-finding email correspondence was conducted with marketing executives, product sales engineers, international sales managers, application engineers, and other personnel of small- to large-format rechargeable Li-ion battery companies.

Finally, the market and company data obtained were fine-tuned on the basis of formal and informal telephone interviews/email correspondence with suppliers, design engineers, consulting companies, other technical experts, government officials and trade association officials, as well as the personnel of the vehicle battery user companies.

Information Sources

Initially, a comprehensive and exhaustive search of the literature was conducted on small- to large-format Li-ion rechargeable batteries used in the targeted market segments (stationary/industrial, automotive and consumer electronics). These sources included the latest press releases on company websites with news on the company, applications, marketing and products, as well as brochures, product literature and technical journals.

Other sources included reports published on websites of institutes such as the Laboratoire de Reactivite et Chimie des Solides, University de Picardie Jules Verne (LRCS), University of Texas and Michigan State University. Proceedings at the Advanced Automotive Battery Conference (AABC) Europe 2016 also were used as sources, along with reports published by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), the U.S. Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR), the Electric Drive Transportation Association (EDTA), and articles published on the subject in the Journal of Power Sources, Technology Review, Spectrum and Nature. Materials and information also were drawn from leading associations such as the European Association of Advanced Rechargeable Batteries, the Korean Battery Industry Association, the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), and the International Energy Agency (IEA). Stationary applications in grid-scale lithium battery energy storage systems for bulk energy storage, as well as the grid stabilization market, also were researched. This included government policy documents related to promoting solar energy storage and other renewable power storage systems already working successfully around the world. Also studied were websites and literature of more than fifty custom battery makers supplying medium-sized lithium battery energy storage modules for powering telecom towers, power tools, data centers and remote location battery applications internationally.

Annual reports of leading companies like LG Chem, Panasonic Corp., Saft Groupe S.A., SAMSUNG, Sony Corporation and Tesla, Inc., wee rich sources of information on production and the market status of Li-ion rechargeable batteries. Subsequent analysis of the documents and interview notes was iterative

For this report, there were wide variations in the market data in the available literature that analyzes the battery market as a whole. Even with the data that do exist, the challenge was to identify the small- to large-format rechargeable batteries used in the three targeted market segments and evaluate how these fit into the overall market for batteries. An extensive patent analysis was conducted to gauge technological innovation and to determine research activity as applied to this particular battery space.

The second phase of the study involved formal and informal telephone interviews/email correspondence with personnel in all areas of the three targeted battery markets. Suppliers, design engineers, consulting companies, other technical experts, government officials and trade association officials were also interviewed.

All results were cross-correlated and tested for reasonableness. In addition, the thorough and appropriate use of statistical analysis techniques insured that the conclusions drawn from this report accurately represent the surveyed markets. The author of this report believes that this thorough and detailed data gathering, together with the use of sophisticated statistical analysis, has yielded a high degree of accuracy.

Contributions of The Study

Current battery technologies are limited, making plug-in hybrid or all-electric cars prohibitively costly and insufficient to meet consumer demands. Long-term, fundamental research in electrical energy storage will be needed to accelerate the pace of scientific discoveries and to see transformational advances that bridge the gaps in cost and performance, separating the current technologies and those required for future utility and transportation needs.

Medium-sized energy storage modules using Li-ion batteries for powering telecom towers, power tools, data centers and remote location battery applications have been highlighted, with construction details. Industry dynamics, alliances and sales agreements between cell manufacturers and electric carmakers/OEMs impacting the market place are a special focus. Current markets and market potential across North America, Europe, Japan, China, Korea and the rest of the world have been quantified.
