Global Lithium Ion Battery Metals Market Report (2022-2022)

DUBLIN, June 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Lithium Ion Battery Metals Market – A Global and Regional Analysis: Focus on Constituent Metal, Cell Chemistry, End Application and Region – Analysis and Forecast, 2022-2031” report has been added Offer.

Metal Lithium Ion Battery Market was valued at US$14,539.70 million in 2021 and is expected to reach US$286,085.77 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 34.00% between 2022 and 2031.

The lithium-ion battery metals market is being driven by several factors, including increasing demand for Li-ion batteries from automotive, consumer electronics and energy storage systems. In recent years, Li-ion batteries have seen an exponential increase in demand from the automotive industry, with electric vehicle (EV) sales reaching record highs.

phase of the market life cycle

Lithium-ion batteries were developed by three scientists, John B. Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham and Akira Yoshino, working separately in the 1970s. During the 1970s oil crisis, M. Stanley Whittingham began work on a battery that could charge itself in a short period of time. He began his experiments using titanium disulfide and lithium metal as electrodes.

In the 1980s, John B. Goodenough used lithium cobalt oxide (LCO) as the cathode instead of titanium disulfide and found that the battery doubled its energy potential. Five years later, Akira Yoshino of Meijo University in Japan used petroleum coke as the anode in John B. Goodenough’s LCO battery. This latest experiment by Akira Yoshino resulted in the first known prototype lithium-ion battery. The three scientists were awarded the 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their work in the development of lithium-ion batteries.

Industrial Impact

The growth of the lithium-ion battery metal market is closely linked to the automotive and consumer electronics industries. The growing demand for electric vehicles and consumer electronic products such as laptops, mobile phones and Internet of Things (IoT) devices has led to an increasing demand for lithium-ion batteries worldwide. In addition, the increasing adoption of lithium-ion batteries in stationary energy storage systems is contributing to the growth of the metal lithium-ion battery market.

Effects of COVID-19

The outbreak of COVID-19 has caused multiple delays in manufacturing operations, resulting in a slowdown in the lithium-ion battery metal market. Supply chain disruptions have also negatively impacted the lithium-ion battery metals market. Currently, companies are trying to enter into long-term supply agreements with other suppliers to maintain smooth operations and interrupted supplies of metals.

Recent developments in the lithium-ion battery metals market

  • In April 2022, Lithion Recycling, a Canadian company, received $18 million from the Quebec government. Funding was provided to continue development of battery recycling technology capable of recovering 95% of strategic materials from end-of-life lithium-ion batteries and industrial waste.
  • In April 2022, Contemporary acquired Amperex Technology Co. Ltd. (CATL) acquired exploration rights to a lithium clay deposit in China. CATL announced that it has been awarded exploration rights for $135 million and further announced that the prospect contains approximately 2.66 million tonnes of lithium metal oxide.
  • In April 2022, Nissan and NASA announced they were collaborating on the development of solid-state lithium-ion batteries. The partnership aims to develop solid-state batteries that are ideal for commercial and aerospace applications.
