Market Analysis of Next-Generation Lithium Batteries

Lithium-ion batteries have revolutionized electronics over the past two decades, however, they do not have sufficient energy density to meet the long-term needs of society, such as the development of electric vehicles. This formidable challenge has driven research into many new battery technologies with different chemistries and configurations, but it remains unclear which technology is best-suited to surpass Li-ion batteries. The goal of the proposed research project is to assess the current market for next-generation lithium batteries to determine the best technologies to research, develop, and commercialize. The proposed research project will be carried out through: 1) a literature survey; 2) interviews with key stakeholders and; and 3) a final market analysis report. The implications of the market analysis report will help define the future of Lion Battery Technologies and will play a key role in identifying the barriers and opportunities in next generation battery technologies.
