Market Overview

The global battery anode materials market is projected to register a CAGR of more than 10% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

Unfavourable conditions arising due to the COVID-19 outbreak hindered the growth of the market in the past year. Also, many end-user industries were impacted due to pandemics. That restricted the growth of the market. However, in 2022, the situation is coming on track and now the market is stable and growing steadily.

  • One of the major factors driving the battery anode materials market is the increasing demand from the automotive sector.
  • However, the stringent safety regulations for batteries through storage and transportation are likely to hinder the expansion of the studied market.
  • Research and development of silicon and the lithium-based anode is a major opportunity to drive the market in the future.
  • Asia-Pacific region accounts for the highest market share due to increasing demand in countries like China, Japan and South Korea.

Scope of the Report

Anode materials are required to be electrochemically active toward the oxidation reaction. To be active as an anode, the material must be electronically conducting under reducing environments, be chemically and physically stable, be a good electrocatalyst, and not react with other cell materials. The battery anode materials market is segmented by Material (Lithium, Silicon, Graphite, and Other Materials), Application (Consumer Electronics, Automotive, Industrial, Telecommunication, and Other Applications), and Geography (Asia-pacific, North America, Europe, South America, and Middle-East & Africa). The report also covers the market sizes and forecasts for Battery Anode Materials Market in 15 countries across the major region. For each segment, the market sizing and forecasts have been done on the basis of volume (kilo tons).

Key Market Trends

Rising Demand in Automotive Industry

  • The market for electric vehicles is expected to grow in the future, driven by the adoption of various environmental norms and emission regulations.
  • Owing to environmental concerns and awareness about clean and sustainable fuel, there is a rise in the demand for electric vehicles.
  • The anode material, in the battery, determines how fast the vehicle battery can be charged and, with an increase in the energy density, helps to extend the driving range per charge.
  • According to a study, the number of electric cars on the world's roads by the end of 2021 was ~16.5 million, triple the amount in 2018.
  • According to the U.S. Department of Energy, in the United States sales of new light-duty plug-in electric vehicles, including all-electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), nearly doubled from 308,000 in 2020 to 608,000 in 2021. EV sales accounted for 73% of all plug-in electric vehicle sales in 2021.
  • All the aforementioned factors are likely to propel the demand for battery anode materials during the forecast years.
