Market Dynamics Lithium Silicon Battery Market Size

DRIVERS: Enhanced energy density of lithium silicon batteries

Lithium-ion batteries with graphite anodes are highly efficient and used in various applications, from small consumer electronics to large grid energy storage systems. Its high usage in anodes has ensured strong global demand for graphite; however, battery manufacturers have faced supply delays as the world is dependent on China for graphite. Researchers have predicted a huge demand-supply gap for graphite in the coming years. Furthermore, despite its efficiency, graphite does not provide energy rapidly or allow compact, high-capacity applications; this has driven attention toward alternatives such as silicon.

RESTRAINTS: Expansion property of silicon and potential for damage to battery

Lithium-ion batteries have proven their cost-effectiveness and performance in several applications such as consumer electronics, energy storage systems, and electric vehicles. While research has helped improve their performance, these batteries cannot hold a charge for long periods, restricting their use in long-distance fully electric vehicles. To overcome the energy capacity problem, research has moved to better-performing silicon materials to improve the capacity and battery density. However, silicon comes with the issue of material expansion. It can swell up to 300% of its normal size when fully charged, which could break the electrode’s outer filming.

OPPORTUNITIES: Fast-growing demand for EVs

EVs use lithium-ion batteries to extract power; these batteries are popularly used in the automotive sector. The widespread use of electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) has boosted the adoption of lithium-ion batteries, which is expected to increase further in the future. The market for EVs for transportation is rapidly evolving due to their energy-saving, pollution-reducing nature.

CHALLENGES: Expensive and complex production process

Manufacturing silicon anodes or silicon materials requires very high-end equipment; silicon cell fabrication costs are also very high. The development process of silicon material involves very high complexities that can modify raw silicon material. The modifications that make it reliable involve complicated processes to ensure that silicon expansion does not damage the battery. The choice of raw material is also a major factor affecting the final cost. In addition, several nanostructures and morphologies involve extensive and rather costly production steps, which makes them impractical for large-scale industrial production.
