How is Physiochemical Limits of Traditional Li-ion Batteries Paving the Way for Solid State Battery Suppliers?

Li-ion batteries have not only revolutionized the portable electronics ecosystem but also built a foundation for electric vehicle revolution. However, growing application area of end-use products has exposed the physiological limits of li-ion batteries. While ionic conductivity of solid electrolytes is still an interest of research, ceramic solids deliver sufficient ionic conductivity.

Besides, a new research project on solid-lithium metal anode batteries (SOLOBAT) initiated by Faraday Institution, the U.K.’s independent institute for electrochemical energy storage research, is further expected to clear the technological roadblocks for solid state batteries. This can further make the transition from li-ion to solid state batteries pronounced, thus elevating demand in favour of the latter.

Electric Vehicle Penetration Reaching New Heights – What Does it Mean for Solid State Batteries?

While it is no more a wise-man’s talk today that electric vehicles are good for users as well as the environment in every aspect, technology providers have been working to make their offerings more suited to new energy vehicles, while at the same time minimizing costs associated with them.

The global electric cars market has been growing at around 40% year-on-year, as most prominent passenger car manufacturers around the world are routing their investments towards alternative fuel vehicles. In 2019, electric car sales clocked 2.1 Mn units globally, which also carried on its back the demand for materials used in them, including solid state batteries.

While electric vehicles become more mainstream, an absolute dollar opportunity of around US$ 911 Mn can be envisioned for sales of solid state batteries during 2021 – 2031.           

An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs

Which Region Offers the Largest Opportunity for Sales of Solid State Batteries?

East Asia is expected to account for over 35% share of global solid state battery demand by 2031. China, on its vehicle electrification spree, holds significant opportunities for related raw materials and components.

In 2019, China was populated with around 2.6 Mn battery electric vehicles and 0.8 Mn plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. Although, with a cut in electric car purchase subsidies, adoption rate of electric cars has dropped. Now, the government is set to boost adoption with policies to support vehicular ownership.

Japan, on the other hand, is also increasing its electric vehicle numbers in its overall fleet. Besides, East Asia, being the hub of battery manufacturing, connects all the dots in demand and supply of electric vehicles as well as solid state batteries.

Battle of Patents

While solid-state battery demand soars, companies in some countries have started to increase their focus on filing patents. With more than 231 patents, Japan leads the race. Followers after Japan include the U.S., South Korea, China, Germany, France, U.K., Finland, Spain and Switzerland with around 159, 148, 112, 56, 24, 23, 23, 23, and 23 patents, respectively.
