Batteries: Unknowns and Certainties

Batteries: Unknowns and Certainties

It is certain that lithium batteries will be dominant over the coming decade and their chemistry will change in pursuit of reduction in cost and flammability and to obtain greater energy density. Uniquely, IDTechEx forecasts the biggest application - electric vehicles - in 101 categories, but any forecast has assumptions that matter a great deal. In the IDTechEx report, "Lithium-Ion Batteries for Electric Vehicles 2020-2030", IDTechEx forecasts ten years assuming, not predicting, no global recession and no shortages.
