Market dynamics

Environmental regulations pertaining to CO2 emissions are expected to boost the use of alternative modes of transport in the transportation sector. Thus, electric vehicles are a good alternative for the reduction of CO2 emissions. Government promotion for adoption of electric vehicles and incentives regarding low emission of CO2 is expected to increase electric vehicles sales over the forecast period. Therefore, demand of next generation batteries such as silicon anode is expected to increase over the forecast period. Moreover, high performance of silicon as an anode material is expected to increase its consumption in smartphone batteries over the forecast period.

However, silicon has a property of soaking large amount of lithium-ions. Therefore, volume of silicon anode increases when lithium ions bind with silicon. Hence, repeated expansion and contraction of silicon anode while charging and discharging decreases the performance of battery. This in turn, is expected to be a major challenge to the growth of the global silicon anode battery market.
