form an essential component for any electronic device. As such, the advancements which are made for batteries also determine how efficient and what features that consumer electronic device can do. For example, smartphones need highly efficient batteries in order to perform the number functions, which they do today. Without the ability to be powered to perform these functions, it would not have made sense for any device manufacturers to develop such products. As such, Li-ion batteries were brought in after the standard Ni-Cd batteries, which were bulkier and less efficient. Li-Ion batteries however also have their share of problems. For example, the batteries tend to bulge after prolonged use and in some cases have been known to rupture. With this in mind, device manufacturers have been looking for batteries, which have a better durability whilst also having higher power retention than the standard Li-Ion batteries. In such a case, silicon anode batteries are the next level of batteries which device manufacturers are looking for which will also help then in designing the end product.
The APAC region will be the highest contributor to the silicon anode batteries market as the end device manufacturers are the key customers for these batteries. The batteries may not become smaller than what they are currently, however, the batteries will be able to hold a lot more charge than their predecessors. The APAC market will be the leading region in this market till the end of the forecast period followed by the European market where the market for silicon anode batteries will be driven by the automotive market
The companies operating in this market will be looking at not just being able to provide silicon anode batteries for the applications for which batteries are used for today already, but will be looking at new and upcoming applications in order to penetrate the market further.
The Silicon anode batteries Market can be segmented as
on the basis of application
