IDTechEx Research: Advanced and post lithium-ion batteries will reach $14bn by 2026

The brand new report by IDTechEx Research “Advanced and Post
Lithium-ion Batteries 2016-2026: Technologies, Markets, Forecasts” sees
new battery technologies disrupting global market.

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Although lithium-ion
is the best battery technology we have ever seen, it will not achieve
transformative factors of five in cost and performance due to inherent
material limitations. Therefore, a new generation of battery
technologies will be required in order to address the existing and
future challenges of the increasingly complex energy systems in our
society. Better batteries will be essential not only in electric cars
and consumer electronics but also in wearable electronics, electric
boats and aircraft, and throughout the built environment.

The brand new report from IDTechEx
, “Advanced
and Post Lithium-ion Batteries 2016-2026: Technologies, Markets,
”, focuses on a variety of new advanced and post
lithium-ion battery technologies: silicon anode, solid state, sulphur,
lithium air, sodium-ion and magnesium batteries.

Whilst existing battery technologies such as lead acid and lithium-ion
batteries will dominate the battery market in the following 10 years,
advanced and post lithium-ion batteries can potentially take a
considerable dent of about 10% of the whole battery market, accounting
for $14 billion by 2026. This is mostly because some of them are already
in use in niche segments that will present high growth in the following
10 years.

A performance benchmark is presented in the report
based on practical results achieved so far from different organisations
from start-ups, established companies and research organisations.

In the report
IDTechEx Research analyses challenges and commercial strategies by the
companies developing them and provide a 10 year market forecast for
2016-2026. We provide company profiles of the key companies involved in
the development and commercialisation of these technologies. Our
coverage is global including activities from the US to Asia.

IDTechEx builds upon its 15 years’ experience in analysing 45 electric
vehicle segments, the future of electronic devices and emerging energy
storage technologies in order to provide a comprehensive analysis of the
current state of development of these technologies and its market
potential. Carrying out direct interviews with key organisations and
attending conferences around the world allows a unique perspective.
