Key Market Trends

Lithium-ion Battery to Dominate the Market

  • The unique properties have made lithium-ion batteries (LIB) the power sources for consumer electronics manufacturers, with a production of the order of billions of units per year.
  • The price of LIB is usually high, as compared to other batteries. Also, leading players in the market have been investing, in order to gain economies of scale and in R&D activities, to improve LIB's performance and price.
  • Lithium-ion batteries find application in a wide range of consumer goods, like smartphones, wearables, laptops, digital cameras, remote controls, and gaming devices.
  • Lithium-ion batteries are safer and have higher capacity power packs and are more economical than other alternatives for long-term use.
  • Also, Li-ion batteries have a low self-discharge rate when not in use, which ensures a long battery life. Therefore, li-ion batteries are widely preferred for portable consumer electronic devices. ​
  • This, in turn, is expected to boost the demand for lithium-ion batteries in Asia-Pacific region during the forecast period.
