PALM BEACH, Fla., July 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Lithium-ion batteries are a source of power for electric vehicles. The widespread use of electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) has inevitably boosted the adoption of lithium-ion batteries, which is expected to increase further in the future. The growing adoption of EVs among consumers has helped boost the market for these energy-saving, pollution-reducing vehicles. The number of electric vehicles is constantly increasing, owing to advantages aligned with them such as less need to maintain the vehicle engine, reduced use of hazardous oil waste, and reduction in pollution caused by fuel combustion engines, along with the development of improved battery technologies. Electric vehicles are perceived as the future of the automobile industry and transportation systems; their increased adoption will eventually increase the demand for lithium-ion batteries. A report from MarketsAndMarkets said that the global lithium-ion battery market size is projected to grow from USD 41.1 billion in 2021 to USD 116.6 billion by 2030; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.3% from 2021 to 2030. The growth of the lithium-ion battery market is majorly driven by surging requirement for continuous power supply from critical infrastructures in wake of COVID-19, increasing demand for plug-in vehicles, growing need for battery-operated material-handling equipment in industries due to automation, continued development of smart devices, and growing adoption of lithium-ion batteries in renewable energy sector. Active stocks in the markets this week include XPeng Inc. (NYSE: XPEV), Spey Resources Corp. (CSE: SPEY) (OTCPK: SPEYF), Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA), NIO Inc. (NYSE: NIO), Li Auto Inc. (NASDAQ: LI).
The MarketsAndMarkets report continued: "The price of lithium-ion batteries has been a major factor hindering adoption since their introduction in the 1990s. A lithium-ion battery consists of many components. The primary component of any lithium-ion battery is the cell, which accounts for almost 50% of its cost; electronics, assembly, and packaging account for the rest. However, recent developments and claims made by lithium-ion battery manufacturing companies and automobile companies suggest that the price of these batteries is expected to decline substantially. According to General Motors Company (US), the cost of a cell is expected to drop to USD 100 per kWh by 2021. Developments such as manufacturing on a large scale, declining price of components, and adoption of advanced technologies to boost battery capacity are some of the factors leading to a decline in price. A reduction in the price would catalyze the adoption of these batteries across various new applications."
