Moreover, the usage of sustainable energy resources and the construction of power storage facilities by several countries worldwide is another propellant fuelling LIB’s market share. All the leading nations across the five regions are investing heavily as well as collaborating with private players to build an ecosystem to fulfil the ever-growing power needs.

The automotive is also a big customer of the LIB industry accounting for a significant share of total consumption. The United States is leading this market with substantial EV sales. This is due to the favourable policies and other legal benefits coupled with a large pool of private stakeholders. Europe and Asia are also catching up with elevated EV demands and governmental support.

The lack of feasible alternatives at the moment is also contributing to the expansion of the lithium-ion batteries market. The sodium-ion and hydrogen fuel cell batteries are still in their developmental phase and require further study and advancement to come to the same production and market level.


Low availability, high developmental cost, environmental risks, raw material extraction and charge drainage are hindering the expansion of the lithium-ion battery market.

The manufacturers of Electric Commercial Vehicles (ECVs) are struggling to meet the demands because of the limited supply of these batteries. And, the absence of viable substitutes is making the matter worse for the end-user companies. Moreover, innovating modern power storage technologies which are safer and more affordable than the LIBs from the available resources like sodium and hydrogen is a feasible option but this needs further time, effort and investment to become practically applicable. Thus, all these factors are hampering the LIB’s market value.


The application of artificial intelligence is providing potential opportunities for the lithium-ion battery market. The integration of AI will enhance battery performance and protection by using data analysis and live adaptations and changes. This helps in monitoring battery condition and power level, anticipates breakdowns and improves charging cycles for durability and efficiency. Also, incorporation with LIBs strengthens the battery management system (BMS), enhances state-of-charge projection and balances voltage and heat dissipation. Thus, it is expected to boost the expansion of the lithium-ion battery market.


The growing interest in sodium-based batteries as an alternative to lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) is one of the biggest obstacles to the market players. The rising traction towards the development of sodium batteries (SBs) is due to issues with its sustainability which is present in the majority of EV batteries and laptops. As a result, various companies have started producing these SBs as greener substitutes for LIBs. The capacity degradation while fast charging is one of the main reasons behind this development. Sodium-ion batteries are more affordable because they provide dual benefits of battery chemistry by depending on low-price materials. Additionally, several car manufacturers have already announced Na-ion electric cars. For example, Seagull by BYD.
