Lithium-ion batteries require low-maintenance and they utilize intercalated lithium compounds as electrodes. As these batteries are relatively lighter than their counterparts, they are utilized in a vast array of products such as automobiles, mobile devices, pacemakers and personal computers. According to the global lithium-ion market report by IMARC Group, the market reached a value of US$ 34.1 Billion in 2020.
With the rising internet penetration and inflating income levels of consumers, the sales of portable electronic devices like mobiles and laptops are continually increasing which, in turn, is strengthening the growth of the lithium-ion battery market worldwide. Moreover, consumers nowadays are shifting from conventional automobiles to electric vehicles that use lithium-ion batteries to operate. This can be accredited to the growing awareness among users about reduced greenhouse gas emissions associated with the use of electric vehicles. Looking forward, the global lithium-ion battery market to exhibit strong growth during 2021-2026.
