Li-ion battery material is further divided into anode material and cathode material. The global battery material market size by separator material was worth USD YY million in 2018 and is estimated to reach USD YY million by 2026, at a CAGR of YY% during the forecast period. • By battery type, the battery material market is segmented into lead-acid, lithium-ion and others. Others include nickel-metal hydride and nickel cadmium. The global battery material market size by lithium-ion was worth USD YY million in 2018 and is estimated to reach USD YY million by 2026, at a CAGR of YY% during the forecast period. The lithium-ion battery is turning into the preferred battery option in smart applications and devices. The lithium-ion battery industry is tremendously meeting the electronics market demand globally, including cell phones, personal computers, and digital/video cameras. Most modern portable electronic devices like iPhones use lithium-ion batteries. • Li-ion batteries are more convenient choice for electronics due to their high charging back-up capacity. Lithium-ion batteries are cleaner, live longer, recycle better, and require much less maintenance. All these characteristics are playing a crucial role in adopting Li-ion batteries globally by the key electronic manufacturers. For instance, from 2001 to 2016, the value of electronics exports from Asia jumped from USD 537.3 billion to USD 1,758 billion, at an average growth rate of 8.2% each year.
Market Geographical Analysis • The Asia Pacific market is valued at USD XX Million in 2018 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period to reach a USD XX Million by 2026. Asia Pacific region holds XX% of market share in 2018 and is expected to increase to XX% by 2026 in global battery material market. Asia Pacific is expected to hold the largest market share globally over the forecast period to 2026. Growth in the generation of electric vehicles and the utilization of batteries in vehicles is driving the market in the Asia Pacific region. The market essentially made up of China and India, which have a massive potential for some application in the lithium-ion battery market. China being a worldwide automotive producing center holds great potential for the development of the market. Additionally, China is likely to be one of the world's prominent manufacturers of electronic gadgets. • Furthermore, the presence of various electronic makers like, LG Electronics, Panasonic, Sony Corp., and Samsung SDI is one of the key elements driving the market for lithium particle batteries in APAC region.
