What is Batteries Event 2017 ?
The market for batteries and their components has experienced a strong double-digit growth for 10 years and several positive factors should ensure that the rally continues.
Firstly, this growth is based on a continuously changing portable electronics market (laptops, smartphones, tablets and now hybrids computers). Secondly, the electrification of the automobile still remains a strong driving force. While electric vehicles remain a niche market, it is a large market for batteries.
On top of that, the energy storage for renewable energy integration, Telecom base station, back-up or UPS are even more promising. Lithium ion battery, thanks to better energy density, longer lifetime, higher discharge current and lower self-discharge try to compete with lead acid batteries and penetrate those markets despite higher capital cost and safety concerns. The cost of ownership for lithium ion could be in certain circumstances better than lead acid.
For 18 years, the Batteries event still remains one of the World’s most attractive event and the meeting place of technologies (lead acid, NiMH, Li-ion, Post Li-ion), applications (from micro batteries to large format batteries) and of the value chain (chemists OEMs and end users)…
