Lithium-ion battery electrolyte industry has broad prospects

Lithium-ion battery electrolyte is an essential material for lithium-ion batteries. It is used to conduct electrons between the positive and negative electrodes of batteries. It is a guarantee for lithium-ion batteries to obtain high voltage and high specific energy. Its development depends on lithium-ion batteries. development of.

Lithium-ion batteries, due to their advantages of high working voltage, high energy density (light weight), self-discharge rate, no memory effect, long cycle life, and no pollution, have been rapidly developed since they were put on the market, and have gradually replaced nickel-metal hydride batteries. In the field of mobile electronic terminal equipment such as notebook computers, mobile phones, and video cameras, etc., it has occupied a dominant position. According to the investigation of the Yano Institute of Economic Research, the current global use of lithium-ion batteries for mobile phones, notebook computers, and digital cameras accounts for 49% of lithium-ion batteries. %, 36% and 4%.

For the lithium-ion battery market development prospects, the opinions of the integrated Yano Institute of Economics, Frost & Sullivan, IIT, Samsung SDI, and other companies have concluded that: 1) In the future, the demand for portable devices will increase and the average consumer who can handle multiple tasks in recent years will use " The expansion of the “small accessories” market will promote the growth of the lithium-ion battery market, but it is expected that with the further penetration of mobile phones and notebook computers in emerging markets such as Brazil, Russia, India and China, the growth of portable products will slow down; 2) Electric New applications such as hardware tools, other consumer electronics, light electric vehicles, and electric vehicles have injected high growth momentum for lithium-ion batteries. The lithium-ion battery market for the industry and vehicles will continue to grow in the next five to seven years. Overall, lithium-ion batteries will still maintain double-digit growth before 2008 or even 2009. The growth rate will be less than 10% from 2010. As of 2016, the total output value of lithium-ion battery market is expected to challenge 10 billion. The prospect of the development of the US dollar and lithium-ion battery also brings enormous imagination space to the lithium-ion battery electrolyte industry.

For Nokia, Sony and other companies recalling mobile phone, laptop battery incident, industry experts believe that lithium-ion battery is still the best and safest choice at present, although many companies are developing fuel cells to replace lithium-ion batteries, but the current portable fuel The battery also falls short of commercial standards and is not 100% safe. And analyst Geoff

Blaber believes that this situation will not change much in the next 1-2 years, and even if it reaches commercial standards, it will take a while to spread in mobile phones and other products, so there is no need to worry about other battery products for lithium in recent years. Ion battery replacement.

At the same time, the production of lithium-ion batteries is mainly concentrated in China (Mainland), Japan, and South Korea. In 2006, its proportion of global sales was 21%, 58.1%, and 16.8%, respectively. With the strong development of Korean electronics brands in the future With the continued growth of China’s strong domestic demand market, the proportion of Japanese manufacturers’ lithium battery sales will gradually decline. Due to the high concentration of lithium-ion battery production in the world, the industry believes that the future development of the domestic lithium-ion battery electrolyte industry should focus on the development of the global lithium-ion battery market.
