Navigant Research has released its latest forward-looking lithium-ion battery forecast.

Among the highlights is this:

“The immediate future looks to be secure for the Li-ion chemistry, and the move now is to continue to reduce costs while increasing energy density and vehicle range. These factors will lead to a greater percentage of BEVs being equipped with larger battery packs that can meet the standard that Tesla has established for vehicle range. According to Navigant Research, the global market for Li-ion batteries in light duty and medium/heavy duty vehicles is expected to grow from $7.8 billion in 2015 to $30.6 billion in 2024.”

and Stop-Start Vehicles: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

Global automotive manufacturers continue their efforts to produce more vehicles utilizing electric drivetrains. Most OEMs have introduced battery electric vehicle (BEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) models, almost all of which use lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries for onboard energy storage. Increasingly, hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) are beginning to use Li-ion batteries instead of nickel-metal hydride (NiMH), and now stop-start vehicles (SSVs) using Li-ion batteries are entering the market. When designing electric or electrically assisted powertrains, OEMs continue to tailor their design approach to each model, factoring in not only economy, but also vehicle range, driver experience, and performance.

The immediate future looks to be secure for the Li-ion chemistry, and the move now is to continue to reduce costs while increasing energy density and vehicle range.
