目次

Large format, rechargeable lithium batteries are constructed from many lithium cells. These cells are typically connected together electrically to form what is commonly referred to as a “battery module.” Modules are then connected together electrically to form a “battery assembly.” Cells are used to construct modules which meet the definition of a “battery,” subject to testing requirements which include U.S., European and Japanese standards and one internationally accepted standard, the U.N. testing requirements.

With increasing size, battery manufacturers face dramatically increasing costs and testing complexities. The benefit of such extensive testing of assemblies is the guarantee that the Li-ion batteries will last - with unimpaired functionality, power and safety - for the required ten years or 160,000km to 240,000km.

Using Li-ion technology in vehicles poses particular challenges. The battery has to operate safely and reliably for the whole of the life cycle stipulated by the vehicle manufacturer, which is at least ten years. This is achieved by an elaborate battery management system which monitors the battery so that it is always within the optimum working range. The electronics compare the battery' s overall condition, temperature and energy reserves against its age. Safety circuits prevent the energy storage unit from becoming too hot. A cell supervision circuit (CSC) monitors the individual cells and ensures their optimum interaction. So that cells are not permanently subjected to uneven loads, the CSC balances the charge levels of all the cells in the battery.

Although, Pb-acid and nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries still control the transport energy storage batteries, lithium-ion batteries are currently emerging as an alternative source. These batteries not only come in a smaller and lighter package, but also provide twice the available power and twice the available energy density of the incumbent NiMH technologies. The efficiency that stems from the power and energy density solutions of lithium-ion chemistry is enabling a new generation of hybrid and electric vehicles that are more powerful and more energy efficient than ever before.

This iRAP report focuses on large format, high performance, rechargeable lithium batteries and their potential use in plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), electric vehicles (EVs), light electric vehicles (LEVs) and heavy duty hybrid vehicles (HHEVs) which are the next great transportation advance that will move us into a cleaner, cheaper, and more oil-independent future.

STUDY GOAL AND OBJECTIVES

Sharp competition and legislation are pushing development of hybrid drive trains. Based on conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, these drive trains offer a wide range of benefits, from reduced fuel consumption and emission to multifaceted performance improvements. The battery is the key component for all hybrid drive trains, as it dominates cost and performance issues. The selection of the right battery technology for the specific automotive application is an important task which impacts on costs of development and use. Safety, power, and high cycle life are a must for all hybrid applications.

The greatest pressure to reduce cost is in soft hybrids, where lead-acid batteries present the cheapest solution, with a considerable improvement in performance needed. From mild to full hybridization, an improvement in specific power makes higher costs more acceptable, provided that the battery' s service life is equivalent to the vehicle' s lifetime. Today, this is proven for the nickel- metal hydride system (NiMH system). Lithium-ion batteries, which make use of a multiple safety concept, with further development anticipated, provide even better prospects in terms of performance and costs. Also, their scalability permits application in battery electric vehicles - the basis for better performance and enhanced user acceptance.

The next generation of large format, rechargeable, lithium-ion batteries has improved safety characteristics in part through the use of alternative, nanosized materials, particularly phosphates. Traditional Li-ion technology uses active materials with particles that range in size from 5 microns to 20 microns.

This report identifies the trends and strategies driving large format, rechargeable lithium battery market segments, and focuses on detailed market share data and quantification in transport applications including:

  • electric vehicles/plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs);
  • light duty (passenger vehicles);
  • medium duty (trucks, etc.); and
  • heavy duty (heavy equipment).

Non-road electric vehicles include:

  • fork lifts, material handling equipment, personnel carriers and cleaners; and
  • airport ground support equipment (GSE) - (electrification of ground support equipment at airports).

Electric idling initiatives (substituting electrification for petroleum-fueled idling operations) include:

  • "cold ironing" - cruise ship and cargo terminals;
  • locomotive electric idling; and
  • truck stop electrification.

This study provides market data about the size and growth of the battery application segments, new developments including a detailed patent analysis, company profiles and industry trends. The goal of this report is to provide a detailed and comprehensive multi-client study of the market in North America, Europe, Japan, China, India, Korea and the rest of the world (ROW) for large format rechargeable lithium batteries, and potential business opportunities in the future.

The objectives include thorough coverage of the underlying economic issues driving the large format, rechargeable lithium battery, as well as assessments of new advanced nano-enabled battery that are being developed. Another important objective is to provide realistic market data and forecasts for large format, lithium battery usage. The study provides the most thorough and up-to-date assessment that can be found anywhere on the subject. The study also provides extensive quantification of the many important facets of market developments in large format, rechargeable lithium batteries all over the world. This, in turn, contributes to the determination of strategic responses companies may adopt in order to compete in this dynamic market.

The report profiles 30 companies, including many key and niche players worldwide, as technology providers, raw material suppliers and large-format battery assemblers.

REPORT SUMMARY

Low-cost, long-life lithium batteries are seen as essential for accelerated development of alternative power vehicles, ranging from the now familiar gasoline-electric hybrids that double normal fuel economy to hydrogen fuel cell vehicles that use no petroleum.

Efficient energy storage systems for hybrid drives will acquire increasing significance in the future. It is precisely storage systems such as lithium-ion technology that will greatly affect the performance and costs of hybrid vehicles, plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles. Preferably, small and light systems with a simultaneously high capacity for charging and discharging are required. Besides increasing the performance, the development work centers on the service life of the battery systems in various drive cycles and temperature ranges.

Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and electric cars need more robust lithium batteries than conventional hybrids, because the batteries undergo a more severe duty cycle, charged to the brim and then nearly drained. Today' s large-format, rechargeable lithium batteries have a modular embedded micro-controller battery management system (BMS), with thousands of lithium cells connected in-loop to take care of proprietary safety, state-of-charge, state-of-health, balancing and diagnostics algorithms, which together serve to maximize the utility and reliability of systems solutions. They also have a variety of available communications interfaces (CAN, J1939, RS-232, etc.) to facilitate the seamless integration of the battery into the vehicle system.

Major findings of this report are:

  • The 2009 market was estimated to be about $80 million. In 2009, we estimate the market to be flat or going down slightly, to $77 million. In spite of the recession, iRAP estimates the market to reach $332 million in 2014, for an average annual growth rate (AAGR) of 33.9%. Midway through the projection period, it is estimated that Li-ion batteries for HEVs, PHEVs and EVs will be in wider use, thereby providing a large growth rate.
  • Customized batteries for off-road vehicles and industrial vehicles such as electric fork lifts, golf carts and motorized wheel chairs, will have highest market share, reaching 51.9% of the market in 2009; by 2014, this share will decrease to 15%. In 2014, large-format lithium batteries for HEVs, PHEVs and EVs will have a 26.6% share of the global market, at $88 million.
