Lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries are commonly used type of rechargeable batteries with twice the energy density of Nickel-Cadmium batteries and greater stability and safety. Lithium (Li) is the lightest of all metals, has the greatest electrochemical potential, and provides the largest energy density for weight.
As compared to traditional battery technology, lithium-ion batteries charge faster, last longer, and have a higher power density for more battery life in a lighter package. Lithium ion battery consists of three main components namely positive and negative electrode separated by an extractor dipped in electrolyte. Negative electrode is normally an electron donor group that is electropositive in nature like lithium metal. Positive electrode is normally an electron acceptor which is strongly electronegative.
The features accountable for the growth of automotive li-ion battery market are increasing passenger vehicles and CO2 emission targets; whereas the challenges faced by market are longer duration of charging time and high internal resistance. The global automotive Li-ion battery market is segmented on the basis of power capacity, application, and region. On the basis of power capacity analysis, the global market is classified into 5-25 Wh, 48-95 Wh, 18-28 KWh, 100-250 KWh, More than 300 KWh.
