This report starts with a summary of the global advanced battery and fuel cell market and continues with a more detailed analysis of materials used: first organized by elements or elemental groups involved and then organized by application (active elements/electrodes, separators, electrolytes, electrocatalysts, etc.). Sources and competitive aspects (including competing applications and competing advanced materials) are analyzed. Important recent developments are provided. Extensive company profiles are included. The global market for advanced battery and fuel cell materials reached $22.7 billion in 2016. The market should reach $32.8 billion by 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.6% from 2017 to 2022.

The report is extremely comprehensive. It looks at the activities of many developers and manufacturers and their potential customers and users.  The report reveals how mobile phone users do not want contactless charging as such but rather they need ubiquitous charging without carrying a charger around or better still, no loss of use through lack of charge.

New energy vehicle electronic technology generally consists of battery management system (BMS), on-board charger, inverter, vehicle control unit (VCU)/hybrid control unit (HCU), pedestrian detection system, DC/DC, etc.. BMS, motor control inverter and VCU/HCU as core components of new energy vehicle must have very high security and reliability. New energy vehicle power electronics usually include AC/DC charger, DC-AC inverter and DC-DC; besides, there are motor controller for electric A/C compressor, PTC heater for electric A/C and others.

Supercapacitors are an emerging energy storage technology that will take a key role in the future of energy systems. Whilst lithium-ion batteries are increasingly capturing the market of other battery technologies, they will never be able to compete with supercapacitor technology in terms of power and number of cycles. This research estimates that the high-power energy storage market is expected to grow almost ten-fold to $2 billion a year by 2026 up from about $240 million currently, Supercapacitors could capture about $800 million to $1 billion of that potential market opportunity.

The commercial battle for next-generation power semiconductors is evolving. IGBTs, SiC and other technologies are geared for the niche-oriented markets at 1,700 volts and higher. But what is the best technology for the larger 600- and 1,200-volt markets? both super-junction MOSFETs and IGBTs are ramping up on 300mm wafers, making them less expensive than GaN and SiC. In comparison, SiC MOSFETs are ramping up on 100mm wafers, while GaN-on-silicon is running on 150mm substrates. This report analyzes and forecasts the traditional power semiconductor market as well as next generation devices.  Market shares of vendors by type are presented.
