Europe lithium-ion battery market is one of the fastest-growing sectors of the power industry. Lithium-ion batteries are rechargeable and are widely used in consumer electronics products such as laptops, mobiles, and other portable electronic devices driving the growth of the Europe lithium-ion battery market. Growing demand for plug-in vehicles, increasing need for battery-powered material handling equipment in industries due to mechanization and non-stop advancement of knowledgeable gadgets, and the adoption of lithium-particle batteries in the sustainable power sector.
Growing sales of electric vehicles in Europe, due to supportive federal policies, coupled with the presence of players in the nation will prompt the development of the Europe economy in the forecast period which is further expected to drive demand for Europe lithium-ion batteries. The wide use of electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in mongrel electric vehicles has inescapably led to the relinquishment of lithium-ion batteries, which is expected to increment further from here on out.
COVID 19 Impact
The outbreak of COVID-19 has severely affected the battery supply. The main battery component is primarily available in the Asia Pacific, but the pandemic has exposed the region’s reliance on raw materials. The Europe lithium-ion battery market growth is primarily driven by the growing equipment for power from critical infrastructure, mainly in the arise of COVID-19. Many countries around the world have imposed travel restrictions, affected the flow of raw materials, and shut down many power stations around the world, negatively affecting the market.
Moreover, the higher price of lithium-ion batteries is expected to contain the market’s growth. Conversely, higher energy efficiency requirements in technologically updated consumer gadgets are expected to provide an opportunity for the major players to expand the lithium-ion battery market.
Strong rates and product pricing are expected to decrease by 50% in the coming years. Due to disruptions in the supply chain of battery raw materials such as lithium and cobalt in 2020, major battery manufacturers and end-users saw a significant slowdown in their businesses.
Challenges in Europe Lithium-ion Battery Market
The Europe lithium-ion battery market is highly fragmented with the presence of several domestic players, who occupy around 60% of the market share. Panasonic Corporation dominated the various players in the market. However, Panasonic Corporation’s market share is expected to decline in the coming years, due to intense competition among the major players to gain a larger share of the market.
The lithium-ion battery market is segmented into Lithium Cobalt Oxide (LCO), Lithium Manganese Oxide (LMO), and Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide (LI-NMC), Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP), Lithium Nickel Cobalt Aluminum Oxide has been done. (NCA) and lithium titanate oxide (LTO). In 2020, Lithium Cobalt Oxide (LCO) holds the largest market share in the segment type because of its wide applications in consumer gadgets; Nonetheless, Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide (Li-NMC) is developing at a higher rate because of expanding applications in EV batteries.
The nations covered in Europe Lithium-Ion Battery Market Report are Germany, France, the UK, Italy, Spain, Russia, Turkey, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland, and the Rest of Europe. Germany overwhelms the European locale region for the lithium-ion battery market because of the presence of several electric vehicles in the region.
