Global EV Battery Market Analysis and Forecast 2024-2033: Introduction of Battery-as-a-Service (BaaS) Models Present Lucrative Opportunities for Players

Dublin, March 14, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global EV Battery Market by Battery Type (Lead-acid, Li-ion, Na-ion, NiMH, SSB), Propulsion (BEV, PHEV, ECEV, HEV), Battery Form, Vehicle Type, Material Type, Battery Capacity, Method, Li-ion Battery Component and Region - Forecast to 2033" report has been added to's offering.

The global EV battery market is projected to grow from USD 132.6 billion in 2023 to USD 508.8 billion by 2033, registering a CAGR of 14.1%. As concerns about climate change and air pollution mount, people are increasingly turning to EVs as a cleaner and more sustainable alternative to gasoline-powered vehicles. This surge in demand for EVs is naturally driving up the demand for EV batteries. Further, Battery technology is constantly evolving, with researchers making significant strides in improving range, lifespan, and charging times. These advancements are making EVs more practical and appealing to consumers, further fueling the market for EV batteries.

Prismatic form to hold largest market share during the forecast period

Prismatic cells represent a more compact form of cylindrical cells, with the internal layers of the anode, cathode, and separators being folded into a cubic or flattened spiral form. This gives it a more compact structure. The battery contents are held together by a casing made of aluminum or plastic. Although prismatic cells have relatively less energy density (20 - 50% less than cylindrical cells), prismatic cells offer better space utilization. Prismatic cells can be costlier to manufacture than cylindrical cells despite being jelly-rolled due to large surface areas and a more complicated process of rolling inside layers. CATL, BYD, and Samsung SDI are major manufacturers of prismatic cells. For instance, in October 2023, Samsung SDI announced the company had clinched a supply deal for electric vehicle batteries with Hyundai Motor Company for the first time. Samsung SDI will supply prismatic batteries for Hyundai Motor's EVs, targeting the European market for seven years from 2026 through 2032. This development will increase the demand for urban transit trains during the forecast period.

By material lithium segment is expected to lead the market during the forecast period

Lithium is a necessary component in the cathodes of lithium-ion batteries. Continuous advancements in battery technology, aiming for improved energy density and efficiency, frequently entail the use of more lithium or the development of variations such as lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries. Moreover, A global effort is underway to invest in lithium production and processing capacity. South America (especially Chile, Argentina, and Bolivia), Australia, and parts of North America are all heavily involved in lithium mining and extraction. In 2022, companies based in China nearly doubled their investment in minerals. This higher energy density, which improves the vehicle range, is a critical factor in their widespread adoption. The demand for lithium will be primarily driven by the high demand for lithium-ion batteries that are used in BEVs. In November 2023, Exxon Mobil Corporation announced plans to become a leading producer of lithium, a key component of EV batteries. The company has started the first phase of North American lithium production in southwest Arkansas, an area known to hold significant lithium deposits. The product offer will be branded as MobilT Lithium, building on the rich history of deep technical partnership between Mobil and the automotive sector. Thus, with the rising demand for EVs, increasing mining activities for lithium, and significant investments by OEMs and battery manufacturers, the demand for lithium is likely to grow significantly.

Europe to be the fastest growing market for EV battery during the forecast period

OMEs in Europe are investing heavily in domestic battery production. The goal is to achieve self-sufficiency and reduce reliance on Asian battery giants. Several gigafactories are being planned and constructed across the continent, creating thousands of jobs and boosting the European economy. Major automakers, tech companies, and private investors are pouring billions of euros into the European EV battery market, recognizing its immense potential. This influx of capital is accelerating innovation and production, further propelling the market's growth. Moreover, Electric vehicle demand in Europe is constantly increasing. Consumers are becoming more ecologically concerned, and they are looking for environmentally friendly transportation solutions. Automobile manufacturers have responded by extending their electric car portfolios, resulting in increased demand for EV batteries.
