Cost of Li-ion Battery Materials

Battery material inputs have taken decades to turn from specialty, batch-processed chemicals into large-scale continuously processed chemicals. Moreover, battery markets have grown substantially in recent years, enough so to become the main demand sources for many materials, including cobalt, lithium and graphite. Other high-cost materials are also dramatically declining in price, including the additives, solvents and binders that are inactive but highly important ingredients in the battery.


After more than two decades, the Lithium-ion battery industry supply chain has reached maturity. Our understanding of how to manufacture batteries cheaply, efficiently and quickly has grown significantly. Much like the photovoltaics industry before it, the LiB industry has recently moved from hand-built machinery to mass produced pieces of equipment that are sold into the multi-billion dollar energy storage industry. As a result, the capital costs of Li-ion battery materials for manufacturing are much more consistent and understood by investors.
Lithium-ion Battery Technology Benefits

Lithium based batteries offer the following advantages over competing battery technologies:

  • Higher energy density (3x Nickel)
  • High performance
  • Longer lifecycle
  • Quick re-charging
  • All season battery – operating down to temperatures of -60oC
  • No minimum level current charge
Li-ion Battery Material Solutions
The lithium-ion battery presents clear fundamental technology advantages when compared to alternative battery chemistries. Decades of research have led its development it into the high energy density, high cycle life, high efficiency energy storage technology that it is today. Nevertheless, research and development continues on new electrode materials to push the boundaries of cost, energy density, power density, cycle life, and safety.

Various existing anode and cathode materials suffer from limited electrical conductivity, slow lithium transport, dissolution, low thermal stability, high volume expansion, and mechanical weakness. New methods and materials are continuously being pursued by Targray and other technology suppliers to help overcome these challenges and create exciting new opportunities in the marketplace.
