Battery & Fuel Cell Materials

As Quoted In Modern Materials Handling

Gains in demand will be driven in part by the motor vehicle industry’s increasing adoption of advanced energy storage technologies to meet government fuel efficiency mandates.

US demand to rise 4.3% annually through 2017

US demand for battery and fuel cell materials is expected to grow 4.3 percent annually through 2017 to $6.1 billion. Rising motor vehicle production, as well as the motor vehicle industry’s increasing adoption of advanced energy storage technologies to meet government fuel efficiency mandates, will support growth in battery materials demand, particularly for polymers and chemicals. Though growing from a much smaller base, fuel cell materials demand will rise at a rapid double-digit annual pace due to the increasing adoption of fuel cells in electrical generation and industrial/motive power applications. However, even faster advances will be limited by the fuel cell industry’s continuing efforts to reduce costs, including through the adoption of less expensive and more efficient material alternatives.

Motor vehicle batteries, fuel cells to be key material markets

The ongoing rebound in US motor vehicle production will stimulate volume growth in lead-acid battery shipments, which will be the primary driver of rising battery materials demand overall. However, the motor vehicle industry’s ongoing efforts to meet increasingly stringent fuel efficiency requirements will lead to the more widespread adoption of alternatives to the traditional flooded lead-acid battery. The impact of this transition will begin to be felt by the battery materials industry over the forecast period. The rising adoption of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries in hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and electric vehicles will help drive above average growth in polymer and chemical battery materials demand as vehicle manufacturers ramp up domestic production of these batteries to supply their North American operations. Additionally, the increasing adoption of start-stop ignition technology will lead to the expanded use of absorbed glass mat (AGM) lead-acid batteries, boosting demand for specialty materials such as glass fibers.

Robust global demand for fuel cells as alternatives in electricity generation and industrial and motive power applications will support the rapid expansion of the US fuel cell industry and drive double-digit annual growth in fuel cell materials demand through 2017. Even faster growth in fuel cell materials demand over the long term will reflect the penetration of fuel cells in motor vehicle and portable device applications. All materials types will benefit as technological advancements and the realization of economies of scale allow volume growth to exceed value-based gains. However, industry efforts to find alternative electrode catalyst materials will limit faster advances in fuel cell metals demand.

Study coverage

This study analyzes the $4.9 billion US battery and fuel cell material industry. It presents historical demand data for 2002, 2007 and 2012, with forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by type (e.g., metals, chemicals, polymers, carbon/graphite), function (e.g., active materials, current collectors, containers, electrolytes) and application (e.g., alkaline, primary lithium, zinc-air, lead-acid, rechargeable lithium, nickel-metal hydride, nickel-cadmium, fuel cells).

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