The COVID-19 pandemic had a severe impact on the li-ion battery industry supply chain, including the battery separator films market. For example, the monthly sales of EVs in China declined by 39% in Q1 2020. The cost of lithium-ion batteries has dropped sharply over the past 10 years, such falling lithium-ion battery prices and the growing adoption of electric vehicles are the major factors driving the battery separators film market demand during the projection period.
Increasing demand for battery separator films in numerous industries including the automotive and consumer electronics industries will propel the market demand during the projection period. The growing penetration of electronics vehicles will further increase the demand for lithium-ion batteries, in turn, expanding the use of battery separator films. In addition, the growing adoption rate of micro-grids and wet process-based battery separator films in the automotive industry is also expected to propel the battery separator film market share throughout the forecast period. Furthermore, battery separator films are significant components in an electrical circuit. These films offer outstanding benefits such as chemical permeability, strength, resistance, and safety toward electronic short circuits. Battery separator films are also used in all types of electric vehicles including hybrid electric vehicles, plug-in electric vehicles, battery electric vehicles, and others.
The APAC Battery Separator Films market is driven by the growing demand for electric vehicles. Electric vehicle sales have increased, with growth in all three top auto markets such as China, the US, and Europe. Reducing prices of EV batteries, increasing demand for electric vehicles in the transportation and automotive sectors, and government initiatives about EVs are major factors behind the growth of the market. Furthermore, a lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery, a rechargeable battery is widely used in electric vehicles and several portable electronics products. They have a higher energy density than typical nickel-cadmium or lead-acid rechargeable batteries.
The market is expected to have a new opportunity with the advancements in battery production and design is expected to provide ample new growth opportunities in the market during the forecast period. Improvements in battery design and production as well as the emergence of next-generation manufacturing technologies are also expected to strengthen the sales in the APAC lithium-ion battery separator film market in the coming years. Advancements in Li-battery battery technology have considerably surged the demand for developments in battery separator film design.
The market has major restraining factors like Safety Issues Related to Batteries. Safety issues related to usage, storage, and transportation of batteries are a major restraining factor that could hamper the market growth. Lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) with outstanding performance are extensively used in electric vehicles (EVs) and portable electronics, but frequent explosions and fires limit their more widespread applications. Lithium-ion battery fire hazards are related to the high energy densities together with the flammable organic electrolyte is the factor restraining the market growth.
The large format cells hampered the growth of the market to a major extent which has created a major challenge for the market growth. Growing demand for large format cells that have more energy than usual small format cells is driving the need for the development of separators that have increased thermal stability compared to polyolefin materials. These larger format cells are being used in both power grid applications and electric vehicles and these batteries have a higher possibility to be a cause of thermal events like fire. These events can result in rapid large temperature increases and ultimately fires and even explosions.
