Global Lithium Battery Separator Market to See 33% Compound Growth in Demand to 2016

DALLAS, TX -- "Global and China Lithium Battery Separator Industry Report, 2014-2016" research report now available with ChinaMarketResearchReports.com says in 2013, the global shipment of lithium battery separator attained 843 million m2, up 33.2% YoY; the compound growth rate was 22.6% in 2007-2013. In view of the strong demand from electric vehicles, energy storage devices, etc. for power lithium battery, the global demand for lithium battery separator will come to 1.99 billion m2 in 2016, at a compound growth rate as high as 33% in 2013-2016.

The global mainstream suppliers of separator (other than China) had put 1.018-billion-m2 capacity into production as of 2013, of which, the wet process held a dominant position by attaining 848 million m2; the dry process contributed 170 million m2, which came mainly from U.S.-based Celgard and Japan-based UBE Industries, with 180-million-m2 dry process capacity under construction.

The global shipment of lithium battery separator increased from 273 million m2 in 2008 to 843 million m2 in 2013, so did the overall capacity from 362 million m2 to 1.9 billion m2, the capacity expansion grew much faster than demand. The global capacity utilization then fell to 44% in 2013. Boosted by the huge market demand for separator, the global capacity will continue to be released. It is expected that the global lithium battery separator market will be featured with quantity increases and price collapses, with the average price falling from USD1.73 / m2 in 2013 to USD1.48 / m2 in 2016.

Companies profiled in Global and China Lithium Battery Separator Industry Report, 2014-2016 include Asahi Kasei, Celgard, Toray Tonen, UBE, SKI, Entek, Mitsubishi Chemical, Evonik Industries, W-Scope, Xinxiang Zhongke Science and Technology (GREEN) Co., Ltd, Shenzhen Senior Technology Material Co., Ltd, Foshan Jinhui Hi-tech Optoelectronic Material Co., Ltd, Cangzhou Mingzhu Plastic Co., Ltd, Jiangxi Xian Cai Nanofibers Technology Co., Ltd, Sinoma Science & Technology Co., Ltd, Zhejiang Great Southeast Co., Ltd, Jiangsu Jiujiujiu Technology Co., Ltd and Nantong Tianfeng New Electronic Materials Co., Ltd.

As per this report the capacity (Unit: Million m2 ) of major lithium battery separator enterprises for 2013 was: Celgard - 150, Entek - 40, Senior - 90, Jinhui - 115, UBE - 60, Toray Tonen - 150, Asahi Kasei - 270, W-Scope - 60, SKI - 190 and Green - 200. In 2013, China's domestic separator shipment reached 265 million m2, showing a year-on-year increase of 61%, the proportion (in global shipment) rose from 17% in 2010 to 31% in 2013, so did the localization rate from 28% to 52%. The same year, the three biggest suppliers of separator in China - Xinxiang Zhongke Science and Technology (GREEN) Co., Ltd, Shenzhen Senior Technology Material Co., LTD and Foshan Jinhui Hi-tech Optoelectronic Material Co., Ltd hit 52.4% market share.

The global shipment of ordinary lithium battery separator used for 3C electronic products reached 633 million m2 in 2013, expected to grow at a compound rate of only 11% in 2013-2016, to 1.135 billion m2 by 2016. This is due to the slowdown in global demand for notebook, smartphone, tablet PC and other digital products since 2014. In 2013, the global shipment of high-performance separator used for electric vehicles and energy storage devices realized 210 million m2, accounting for 25% of the demand; by 2016, the shipment will hit 1.135 billion m2 (at a compound growth rate of 75% in 2013-2016), with a demand proportion of 57%. Thus, the high-performance separator will become the main demand growth point for the lithium battery separator market in the future.
