I   Current Status and Future Outlook of Small Consumer-Use LiB Market

  1. Trends in Consumer-Use LiB Market by Application
  • Largest sales of consumer-use LiBs have become those for smartphones.
  • Global consumer-use LiB market in capacity reached 36,554,762kwh in 2014.
  • Not only the market of LiBs for note PCs is on the decline, but the number of cells installed per note PC has been decreasing.
  • Emerge of high volume LiBs and expanding demands of laminate-type cells are boosting the consumer-use LiBs for smartphones.
  • Growth of LiBs for tablets has slowed down, because the functions of smartphones have evolved to overlap some functions of tablets, meeting tablet demands.
  • There are stable demands for LiBs for electric tools.
  • Since wearable devices are diverse and each of the shipment volume is small, laminate-type cells are preferred.
  • It is unlikely that high-capacity LiBs will be preferred, although it is up to growth of the application market.
  • Battery banks and electric bikes have drawn attention, as they can be new locations for installing cylindrical cells.
  1. Trends of Small Consumer-Use LiB Market by Cell Type
  • Laminate-type cells are on the rise, while cylindrical, prismatic and pouch cells are in the tendency of declining.
  1. Transition of Small Consumer-Use LiB Market Share by Manufacturer
  • Samsung SDI maintains its top position.
  • Manufacturers that mainly produce laminate-type cells are expanding their market share.

II   Current Status and Future Outlook of LiB Market for Vehicles (HEV/PHEV/EV)

  1. Trends in LiB Market for Vehicles (HEV/PHEV/EV)
  • The prospective LiB market for vehicles in 2014 attained 354.090 Billion Yen, or 5,502MWh in capacity.
  1. Trends in LiB Market for Vehicles (HEV/PHEV/EV) by Cell Type
  • Battery types depend on specific design of car makers, required performance of the battery, and vehicle type.
  1. Transition of Market Share of LiB for Vehicles (HEV/PHEV/EV)  by Manufacturer
  • Currently, Panasonic, AESC, and LG Chem are the top 3 manufacturers
  • Samsung SDI and LEJ are expected to increase their market share by 2014
