Li-Air Battery - Market Potential, Applications, Opportunities, Trends, Competitive & Investment Analysis

Purchase Report

Lithium Air or LI-Air batteries are high capacity lithium batteries. Unlike traditional LI-ion batteries which use intercalated lithium compound, these Li-Air batteries use Lithium and Air (or oxygen). These type of batteries produce current by oxidizing lithium at anode and reducing oxygen at cathode. These batteries have high capacity which is around 5-10 times that of li-ion battery. This makes them highly desirable for electric vehicles and other utilities which need high capacities. Even though the technology was proposed in 1970`s, it wasn’t until 2000 that the technology went mainstream, due to material technology advancements. High capacity and low weight is drawing the interest of electric vehicle companies, this has generated increased investments in this technology. With recent breakthroughs in technology, scientists can now successfully create a fully functional Li-Air battery. Many leading energy companies and startups are working on this technology. With this pace and high investments the technology could be available for commercial use as early as 2018.

If successful the technology could completely revolutionize the automotive industry, by increasing the range of EV`s to match that of Internal Combustion Engine cars. It is possible to produce electric cars with range above 500 Kilometers per charge. High investments and need for efficient batteries is driving the growth in this market. This will help us reduce our carbon foot print and also decrease our dependence on fossil fuels. But more advancements have to be made before commercially usable prototypes can be produced. This technology has huge potential globally as the demand for renewable sources is increasing. USA and Europe will see high initial demand while Asia and Middle East will have massive growth opportunities.
