Global Battery Separators Market: Global Size, Trends, Competitive, Historical & Forecast Analysis, 2022-2028. High demand in the automotive sector is one of the major factors expected to drive the growth of the global Battery Separators Market.
A battery separator is a type of polymeric membrane that is positioned between the positively charged anode and the negatively charged cathode. This positioning helps prevent electric short-circuiting. The separator is a critical component of the batteries. It has separate anode and cathode material within a cell. When the membrane becomes moistened by the electrolyte, it acts as a catalyst that increases the movement of ions from one electrode to the other. The ions move from the cathode to the anode when the battery is being charged and from the anode to the cathode when the battery is being discharged. Since the membrane controls the number of ions that move between terminals, it is also responsible for the charge and discharge of the battery under ideal conditions.
Covid -19 pandemic has been declared a public health emergency worldwide. From the last two years every industry has faces huge decline in market. Battery separator is majorly used in the automotive sector and during the pandemic the manufacturing in the automotive sector was severely affected which impacted the battery separator market as well.
The Battery Separators Market is segmented on the basis of type, end user, material and region & country level. On the basis of type, the market is classified into Li-ion, lead acid and others. On the basis of end user, the market is classified into automotive, consumer electronics, industrial and others. On the basis of material, the market is classified into polypropylene, polyethylene and others.
Battery Separators Market report covers the prominent players like
On March 15th, 2022; SK IE Technology a subsidiary of SK Innovation is planning to invest $200 million to expand its separator plant in Poland from 433 million square meters to 1.54 billion square meters. SK first announced plans for the Polish plant in 2019, to manufacture lithium-ion battery separators (LiBS) and ceramic coated separators (CCS) for electric vehicle batteries in Europe.
The battery separator is playing a major role in the automotive sector. Over the last few years, electrical vehicle adoption is mainly increasing and with electric vehicles, the demand for lithium batteries has also increased. The demand for electric vehicles skyrocketed in 2021 compared to 2020. Including fully electric and plug-in hybrid passenger cars around 6.5 million electric vehicles were sold around the world. In addition, growing adoption of lithium-ion batteries is also fostering the market growth. In the electric vehicles, battery safety is a critical concern. The lithium-ion battery separator is a permeable membrane placed between a battery anode and cathode. Additionally, in conditions like rising temperature, the pores of the separator get closed by the melting process and the battery shuts down. The Li-ion batteries fall under the dangerous goods category and they can cause safety risks if it is not tested and packed properly. Moreover, an increasing initiative to decrease carbon footprint is the major factor boosting the demand for the electric vehicles. The UK government has set a target that the sale of petrol and diesel cars will be banned by 2040. The government is also looking to reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2050, and electric cars will play a big role in that. In addition, growing consumption of electronic gadgets is also supplementing the demand for the battery separators.
However, the performance of the lithium-ion batteries is greatly affected by the materials and structure of the separator. The wettability of the separator toward non-aqueous electrolytes can significantly impact the performance of a lithium-ion battery. The wettability issue is a continuing concern. This is because larger batteries are being developed for applications such as electric vehicles. Another factor that impacted the battery separator is the thermal stability of the separator and thinner separators. In spite of all these factors, the emergence of new technologies in battery separators will create opportunities to offer more opportunities for the further growth of the global anti-reflective coatings market.
The Asia Pacific is expected to witness significant growth in the global battery separator market due to the huge demand from electric vehicle manufacturers and demand for consumer goods in this region. The low cost of lithium-ion batteries is supplementing the demand and manufacturing of lithium-ion batteries which is supplementing the market growth. Additionally, lithium-ion batteries have been widely used in electric vehicles, portable devices, and grid energy storage due to their high specific energy density and stable cycling performance. With the growing popularization of tablet PCs and electric vehicles, lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) are expected to achieve both larger capacity and higher energy density. For example; the 1.3 million EVs sold in China in 2020 represented 41% of global EV sales. Moreover, the government taking the initiative to replace conventional fossil fuel devices, reduce carbon emissions to zero, and environmental safety which are also fostering the market growth in this region. For example; In May 2021, the Indian government approved an INR 181 billion production-linked incentive (PLI) scheme for building Tesla-style Giga factories for the manufacture of Li-ion EV batteries. The plan includes setting up a 50 GWh manufacturing capacity for advanced chemistry cell batteries by attracting investments totaling INR 450 billion. Apart from electric vehicles, lithium-ion batteries are used in various applications’ renewable energy integration with the grid. According to governments approximately India will need a minimum of 10GWh of Li-ion cells by 2022.
The growth in the Europe market is owing to the increasing adoption of renewable energy integration in this region. For example; Germany is one of the largest solar power producers in the world. With an installed capacity of nearly 60 gigawatts (GW) in 2021. due to the strong huge consumer electronics demand coupled with the presence of stringent regulations, which is also boosting the use of electric vehicles within the region. For example; according to Schmidt Automotive; battery electric vehicle (BEV) sales will reach a market share of 60% in Western Europe by 2030, or 8.4 million vehicles.
