The declining cost of renewable energy sources contributes to their increased economic viability and competitiveness over conventional energy sources. In order to promote the use of renewable energy sources governing bodies from numerous nations and international organizations are also putting supportive laws goals and incentives into place. Further resolving the intermittent problem with renewable energy sources is the development of energy storage technologies like lithium-ion batteries which increase their accessibility and dependability.

High demand for lithium cobalt oxide

Lithium cobalt oxide is commonly used as the cathode material in lithium-ion batteries. It is among the oldest and most widely used cathode materials due to its beneficial electrochemical properties. Typically graphite anode and electrolyte are combined to form a lithium-ion battery. Its crystal structure is layered and it belongs to the transition metal oxide class. Owing to its elevated voltage and energy density it finds application in situations where high-performance batteries are imperative. The compound is well known for having a higher specific capacity or the ability to hold charge per mass or volume unit.

North America is witnessing exponential growth during the forecast period

In this region, there is a large increase in the purchase and manufacture of consumer electronic devices. The rule now for the ones in the market is to go into mergers and acquisitions so that they can create new products and have a global presence. To meet the growing demand from the electrical and gadgets sector, manufacturers are developing new products. This is expected to open up lucrative opportunities for the North American battery material market to grow in the years to come. The growing need for electronic devices would also encourage local market expansion during the projected period. The US leads the North American market for battery materials. The primary drivers of market expansion in are the growing demand for smart electronic devices and the growing appeal of electric cars and trucks.

Market key launches

  • In December 2023, a cobalt-free, 5V-class, high-potential cathode material was used by Toshiba Corporation to create a new generation of lithium-ion batteries that can be used in electric cars and power tools alike. The Japanese company claims that by significantly suppressing performance-degrading gases produced as side reactions, the cathode ensures high-voltage and high-power performance. The technology was recently presented at the Battery Symposium of Japan in Osaka. Furthermore, because the battery cathode is less nickel-containing and cobalt-free, the new battery composition promotes carbon neutrality and circular economy while also offering a better financial and resource-saving option.
  • in May 2023, to reduce the heat produced by power semiconductors, Panasonic Corporation announced that it was developing the high-thermal conductive film R-2400 for multilayer circuit boards. The novel product can be applied to multilayer circuit boards and reduces the heat produced by power semiconductors.something that is challenging to accomplish using standard high-thermal conductive materials. It is also suitable for use in circuit boards with thick copper foil and embedded components. Due to their impact on reducing weight and the miniaturization of electrical modules and drives, these features help electric vehicles reduce their power consumption (or electricity costs) and their carbon emissions.
  • in June 2023, SAMSUNG SDI CO., LTD. declared that it was the first manufacturer of lithium-ion batteries to obtain the Carbon Trust carbon footprint labels.
