Global Lithium-Ion Battery Market Overview

Global lithium-ion battery market was valued at $ 24.5 billion and is projected to grow at a promising CAGR of 15% to reach $ 56 by 2024 on account of increasing demand for energy-efficient, safe and low-cost batteries. Lithium-ion battery or li-ion battery (abbreviated as LIB) is a type of rechargeable battery in which lithium-ions move from the negative electrode to the positive electrode during discharge and from positive electrode to negative electrode while charging. Li-ion batteries use an intercalated lithium compound as one electrode material, compared to the metallic lithium used in a non-rechargeable lithium battery.

Booming market for electrical vehicles, rapid technological advancements, and increasing demand for smart devices are some of the factors fueling growth in global lithium-ion battery market. Additionally, encouraging government regulations to utilize batteries in order to reduce pollution along with growing adoption in various industries are further likely to propel demand for lithium-ion batteries. However, safety concerns regarding overheating and lack of charging stations are restricting the growth of the market.
