Automotive Battery Market Trends


Increased Demand for Lithium-Ion Battery is driving the market growth


Market CAGR for lithium-ion batteries is expected to grow fastest during the forecast period. A lithium-ion battery is equipped for applications that demand high-energy density solutions, such as hybrid and electric automobiles. Additionally, to increase vehicle economies, manufacturers are continuously focusing on reducing the price of the battery, propelling the market growth globally. Lithium-ion batteries charge faster, last longer, and have a higher power density for more battery life in a lighter package than traditional battery technology. The automotive lithium-ion battery has emerged as an eco-friendly, rechargeable power source compared to conventional batteries such as lead-acid and nickel-metal hydride. With stringent fuel efficiency norms in countries such as the United States, India, Germany, and Japan, manufacturers are trying to reduce the cost of lithium-ion batteries, increasing the demand for electric vehicles. For instance, in September 2019, Maruti Suzuki partnered with Toshiba and Denso to set up the world's largest automotive lithium-ion battery manufacturing unit in Gujrat (India). Numerous governments are providing incentives/ tax credits to promote the use of electric vehicles, which is expected to increase the demand for automotive lithium-ion batteries. For instance, the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) tax credit is USD 2,500-7,500 per new electric vehicle purchased in the United States. Similarly, California provides USD 2,500 rebates, Delaware provides USD 1,000 rebates, and Colorado provides USD 5,000 tax credits on purchasing electric vehicles.


Additionally, Leading automotive Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) are collaborating with battery OEMs to strengthen their operation to develop high-performance EV batteries that will reduce charging time which is one of the vital factors driving the market growth. Moreover, manufacturers are working on developing batteries with a higher energy density that extends battery range and using nanowires that reduce charging time to meet rapidly growing market revenue.
