Cobalt-free Battery Market: Key Findings

  • Utilization of cobalt has increased in the cathodes of nearly all types of lithium-ion batteries owing to its ability to stabilize and boost energy density. However, battery manufacturers across the globe are focusing on usage of cost-effective and eco-friendly alternatives to cobalt, owing to its disadvantages, such as high cost and hazardous nature. Latest cobalt-free chemistries have gained traction in the last few years, as the price of the cathode material can be decreased by up to 60% (in comparison to nickel manganese cobalt, or NCM). Moreover, cost of manufacturing cobalt-free batteries is less, making them a cost-effective option as compared to lithium-ion batteries. Furthermore, cobalt-free batteries deliver increased lifespan and outstanding performance. Therefore, adoption of cobalt-free batteries has increased in various end-use industries, such as healthcare, consumer electronics, transportation and logistics, and smart packaging. This, in turn, is estimated to fuel business growth during the forecast period.
  • LNMO (Lithium nickel manganese oxide) has gained popularity as one of the advanced technologies in the cobalt-free family owing to several advantages. For instance, charging/discharging time of LNMO batteries is very low and they can work at high voltages of about 4.7 V, yielding high energy densities of around 650 Wh/kg at cell level. Usage of cobalt-free batteries has risen in mobile and stationary applications in the last few years. Moreover, technological developments in and understanding about cobalt-free batteries have increased in the last few years, thereby augmenting industry growth.
  • As per the market trends analysis by TMR, the lithium ferrous (iron) phosphate segment accounted for a leading share of the global industry in 2022. LiFePO 4 battery (Lithium iron phosphate battery), or LFP battery (lithium ferro phosphate battery), refers to a lithium-ion battery type, which has gained traction owing to its important role in utility-scale stationary and vehicle applications due to advantages, such as safety, affordability, durability, sustainability, and low toxicity. Moreover, usage of lithium ferrous phosphate batteries has risen owing to their improved cycle life, aging characteristics, and resource availability.
