Lucintel Anticipates APAC to Remain the Leader in Global Lithium-ion Battery Market over 2013-2018

The global lithium-ion battery industry is expected to reach $24.2 billion by 2018. APAC is expected to be the leading region in terms of lithium-ion battery consumption for automotive industry during 2013-2018.

The global lithium-ion battery industry is expected to reach $24.2 billion by 2018. APAC is expected to be the leading region in terms of lithium-ion battery consumption for automotive industry during 2013-2018. High demand of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, such as USB charger, solar laptop battery charger, and mobile phone charger as well as economic growth in APAC accelerated the demand in this region.

Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, has conducted a competitive analysis on the lithium-ion battery industry and presents its findings in "Global Lithium-ion Battery Industry: Trend and Forecast 2013-2018". The opportunities existing in the market are based on various application markets, regional factors, etc. Marketing strategies tailored to take advantage of these conditions should result in improved revenue and profitability.
The report highlights that the lithium-ion battery is expensive. The raw materials used in anode and cathode are of high prices. Raw material price decreased in 2012. High unemployment levels in the Euro area and the advanced economies are expected to weigh on the global unemployment in 2013. With the revival of the major economies in 2014, the unemployment situation is likely to improve.
The study gives a brief overview that consumer electronic products are one of the key drivers, which has the highest market share in terms of value. Lithium-ion battery is used in most of the consumer goods such as laptop, tablet, smartphones, mp3 players, video games, calculators, watches, and portable devices. Demand for lithium-ion battery is also increasing due to its low price, high temperature bearing capacity, and low weight.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
