Battery & Fuel Cell Materials

US demand for materials used in batteries and fuel cells will decline 2.5 percent annually through 2013, largely due to a moderation in raw material prices. In volume terms, however, materials demand will rebound due to an improvement in US battery production. Performance additives and catalysts will see the fastest gains by function.

This study analyzes the $4.9 billion US battery and fuel cell material industry. It presents historical demand data (1998, 2003, 2008), and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by type (e.g., metals, chemicals, polymers, carbon/graphite, ceramics), function (e.g., active materials, current collectors, containers, performance additives, separators, electrolytes, catalysts), and application.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 35 industry players, including Exide Technologies, Doe Run Resources, and RSR.
