The Battery Materials Landscape

Batteries are expected to simultaneously fulfill a large number of criteria in order to meet challenging combinations of consumer demands, such as high power and high-energy density, long life, low cost and excellent safety, and with minimal negative environmental impact. And while our understanding of how to manufacture batteries cheaply, efficiently and quickly has grown significantly in the last two decades, there remain many opportunities to make improvements on existing battery technologies through the use of high-performance materials.
Lithium-ion Batteries

Lithium-ion is not a single technology, but a family of technologies. Although they all rely on lithium as the shuttling ion, different versions of the technology combine the lithium with a variety of other materials to confer different properties. Collectively, lithium-ion technologies are the fastest growing form of battery on the worldwide market, with the potential to dominate the market in the short term.
 
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.

Battery Material Components

The production of lithium-ion batteries involves several specialty materials:

  • Cathode Active Materials | LFP, LCO, LMO, NMC, NCA, CSG
  • Anode Active Materials | Graphite, Graphene, LTO
  • Packaging Materials | Pouches, Cases, Cans, Tabs
  • Electrolyte | Lithium Hexafluorophosphate (LiPF6)
  • Separators | Polyethylene, Polypropylene
  • Battery Grade Lithium | LiOH, Li2CO3
  • Anode Foils | Copper, Nickel
  • Cathode Foils | Aluminum
  • Binders | PVDF, SBR Aqueous
Battery Material Costs

Propelled by demand in the EV Battery and Energy Storage spaces, the battery materials market has experienced drastic growth in recent years, enough so to become the main demand sources for a number of raw materials including cobalt, lithium and graphite. Moreover, traditionally high-cost specialty materials – such as additives, solvents and binders – are also seeing price declines as the battery marketplace continues to grow larger and more competitive
