There are several reasons for the expected growth of the lithium-ion battery market. First lithium-ion batteries play a very important role in the automotive sector. Second, is continues growing demand for smartphones, tablets, and other electronic devices, and third is the increase in government regulations which are meant to reduce the increasing pollution levels, enhancing efficiency of lithium-ion batteries.

AES Corp (NYSE: AES) is a good example of how companies in the ion battery market are working to reduce pollution. AES now in contract with Southern California Edison to provide the world's largest storage lithium-ion battery which will be capable of holding and delivering over 100 megawatts of power an hour for four hours. The goal is to replace the traditional gas plant and help southern California to keep peak loads in control. The plant will come on line in 2021.

When manufacturers benefit, so are suppliers. Albemarle Corporation (NYSE: ALB) in with its Performance Chemicals segment consists of three product categories: Lithium, Performance Catalyst Solutions and Bromine. Lithium is developed and sold to companies for a wide range of use.

According to the report, it is the Asia-Pacific region that is the largest revenue-generating region in this market, followed by North America.
