WinterGreen Research announces that it has published a new study ILithium Ion Battery Cathodes: Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2019 to 2024. The 2019 study has 250 pages, 119 tables and figures. Lithium-ion Batteries at $100/kWh Make EVs Cheaper Than Traditional Gas-Powered Vehicles. As the new cathode technologies are applied to lithium ion batteries, the cost of lithium ion batteries will continue to decrease.
Lithium-ion Batteries at $100/kWh Make EVs Cheaper Than Traditional Gas-Powered Vehicles. As the new cathode technologies are applied to lithium ion batteries, the cost of lithium ion batteries will continue to decrease. Lithium-ion batteries aim to cost $100/kWh, – a cost that makes EVs cheaper than traditional gas-powered vehicles. Companies are targeting between $80/kWh and $100/kWh. Realistically companies will likely approach $100/kWh.
NMC lithium battery cathode materials are used for electric vehicles. As the cathode markets develop toward NMC, it is clear the LFP favored by Chinese manufacturers, not suitable for electric vehicles will lose market share. Current NMC ternary lithium-ion batteries from South Korean and Japanese makers typically employ a ratio of 60% nickel to 20% manganese, and 20% cobalt (6:2:2), but as that ratio moves to 8:1:1 in 2018 and beyond, the cathode is a key element in achieve vast cost efficiencies.
On the basis of product, the market is primarily split into
- Nickel Cobalt Manganese (NMC)
- Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP)
Worldwide Lithium Ion Battery cathodes have many applications. On the basis on the end users/application, this report covers
- Electric Vehicles
- Drones, UAV, UUV
- Power Tools
- Smart Phone Equipment
- Consumer Electronics Products
Worldwide Lithium Ion Battery cathode market at $7 billion market in 2018, is expected to reach $58.8 billion by 2024.
