DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/k48rtq/global_and) has announced the addition of the "Global and Chinese Lithium Battery Electrolyte Industry Report, 2014-2018" report to their offering.
As one of the four key materials, electrolyte is mixed in certain proportions of solvent, electrolyte, and additives. It is mainly used in the fields such as consumer electronics, electric vehicles, and energy storage devices.
The global consumer electronics have the largest demand for lithium battery electrolyte, occupying 80.7% in 2013, followed by the demand from electric vehicles, sharing 13.5% in 2013. It is projected that amid the slowed growth in demand from consumer electronics and rapid expansion in EV demand, the EV's demand for lithium battery electrolyte will exceed consumer electronics' in 2018.
In order to improve the battery energy density to increase EV driving range, high-voltage cathode materials will be mainly developed. Therefore, the corresponding high-voltage electrolyte will become the main trend for future electrolyte development. Globally, 4.2-4.35V high-voltage electrolyte has now become mature; 4.4-4.5V high-voltage electrolyte is being marketed; and 5V high-voltage electrolyte is under development. Additive formula is a major technological means to obtain high-voltage electrolyte and thus become a top priority of investment. The gap in solvents and additives between Chinese and foreign manufacturers is narrowing.
World's influential lithium electrolyte producers consist of Ukseung, LG CHEM, Mitsubishi Chemical, UBE Industries, Guotai Huarong, and Capchem, etc. In 2013, the sales volume of lithium battery electrolyte globally amounted to 61,000 tons, 9.5% of which came from Ukseung, making it the world's No. 1. And Guotai Huarong, the largest lithium battery electrolyte manufacturer in China, represented 8.5% of the global total, ranking the third place worldwide.
