The global battery materials market size is expected to reach USD 60.61 billion by 2027 while exhibiting a CAGR of 5.9% between 2020 and 2027. This is attributable to the increasing demand for electric vehicles and the favorable government regulations that promote the adoption of green energy sources that will favor the adoption of advanced battery materials across the globe. This information is published by Fortune Business Insights, in its latest report. The report further mentions that the market stood at USD 47.75 billion in 2019 and is projected to gain momentum in the forthcoming years.
Disruption in Procurement of Raw Materials amid COVID-19 to Limit Growth Prospects
The global pandemic, COVID-19, has led to significant disruption in supply chain across the globe. This has completely paralyzed the growth prospects of several industries. The difficulty in procurement of raw materials amid the novel coronavirus has led to major delays in production and manufacturing activities across the automotive, logistics, and electronics sector. This is likely to hinder the growth of the market to some extent. However, once the condition improves the market will showcase considerable growth in the forthcoming years.
Battery materials consist of several metals such as lithium, graphene, nickel, lead, coppers, manganese, and aluminum, among others. Additionally, it involves two types mainly cathode materials and anode materials. The cathode materials include lithium iron phosphate, lithium cobalt oxide, lithium manganese oxide, and lithium nickel cobalt aluminum oxide. The anode materials are generally graphite.
Increasing Demand for Electric Vehicles to Promote Growth
The stringent government regulations to limit the emission norms are propelling the demand for advanced electric vehicles. The EVs consists of battery materials such as Li-ion batteries that are stable and can be recharged several hundred times. Additionally, they posses high energy density, along with excellent voltage capacity, compared to other rechargeable batteries. Therefore, the increasing focus on developing energy-efficient automotive by the manufacturers is expected to contribute to the growth of the global battery materials market in the forthcoming years.
Increasing Consumer Spending on Electric Vehicles in Asia-Pacific to Favor Growth
Among all the regions, Asia-Pacific stood at USD 18.39 billion in 2019 and is expected to hold the highest position in the global battery materials market during the forecast period. This is attributable to the rising consumer spending on electric vehicles in countries such as China, India, South Korea, and Japan in the region.
The market in Europe is expected to showcase considerable growth during the forecast period. This is ascribable to factors such as the growing adoption of advanced battery materials from automotive and electronics industries in countries such as Germany between 2020 and 2027.
