New York, United States, April 29, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Battery metals are the unprocessed materials needed to produce batteries, including lithium, nickel, cobalt, manganese, and graphite. Batteries for consumer electronics, electric vehicles, and other uses are increasingly using these battery metals. Lithium metal can be discovered in brine and hard rock deposits in China, the Americas, Australia, Canada, Brazil, and Portugal, among other economically developed nations. Cobalt is the most common cathode material used in lithium-ion batteries. Due to its high energy density and storage capacity, nickel is a fantastic material for battery applications. The use of smartphones, tablets, and other electronic devices has grown, benefiting the global battery metal market.

Increasing Demand for Smartphones, Tablets and other Electronic Gadgets Drives the Global Market

Batteries are frequently used in electronic devices, including tablets, laptops, mobile phones, PCs, and cameras, because of their long lifespan and high energy density. The most battery-intensive apps on all electronic devices are smartphones, tablets, laptops, and personal computers. One essential quality needed in the current commercial environment for the rising sale of electronic devices is battery efficiency. Smartphones, tablets, and laptops/PCs sell more than other electronic gadgets because of their improved performance and low pricing. People typically ask about battery backup before buying any tablet, smartphone, or laptop/PC. In the coming years, there will be a surge in demand for lithium-ion batteries because they provide greater energy longevity than other battery chemistries and are predominantly employed in manufacturing smartphones.

Increase in Funding for Rural and Remote Regions Electrification Creates Tremendous Opportunities

Emerging countries like China, India, and Brazil are investing in electrifying remote and rural areas. The growth in population and the acceleration of urbanization are the main forces behind the need for electrification in these nations, which promotes the demand for batteries for energy storage. Asia-Pacific countries, including Bhutan, Afghanistan, India, Nepal, and Cambodia, experienced the highest electrification growth rate over the preceding five years using on-grid and off-grid solutions. The rise in demand for stationary energy storage in off-grid applications, such as renewable energy power plants, will thus create profitable chances for the market expansion of battery metals during the projection period, considering all aspects mentioned earlier.

Regional Analysis 

Asia-Pacific is the most significant revenue contributor and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.45% during the forecast period. The battery metals market in Asia-Pacific is increasing in terms of revenue. China, Japan, India, South Korea, and Australia are leading proponents of this region's growth. Additionally, the rise of the power and consumer electronics industries is fueled by the rapid economic and demographic growth in the Asia-Pacific area. China has the most promising potential for the lithium-ion battery market, followed by Japan. The existence of renowned manufacturers in China and Japan, such as AESC, Panasonic, and China BAK Battery, Inc., explains this. Due to the country's growing interest in e-mobility and consumer electronics, India is anticipated to have the highest CAGR in the global market for battery metals.

North America is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 8.35% during the projection period. The increase in demand for battery metals from various industrial sectors, including consumer electronics, automotive, power, and other energy storage applications, is what is expected to drive the expansion of the battery metals market during the forecast period. The continual power outages brought on by natural disasters and the deteriorating state of the electric grid infrastructure are two factors propelling the expansion of the battery metals market in North America. The spike in demand for batteries as a backup power source from manufacturing, commercial buildings, and educational institutions has caused the need to expand substantially.
