Recent Developments in Lithium-ion Battery Dispersant Market Industry n In 2020, Croda International PLC launched a new product, Hypermer Volt 4000T, a conductive carbon dispersant that improves battery capacity to meet electrification challenges across a range of industries, specifically focused on the automotive industry. The market size of lithium-ion battery dispersant is estimated to grow from USD 735 million in 2022 to USD 1,285 million by 2027, at a CAGR of 11.8% during the forecast period. The lithium-ion battery dispersant market has been growing at a moderate pace over the past five years, owing to the growing adoption of lithium-ion batteries in the renewable sector. Lithium-ion battery dispersant can be categorized into three types, namely, block co-polymer, naphthalene sulfonate, lignosulfonate, and others. Lithium-ion battery dispersant improves efficiency and productivity as well as ensure high energy retention in lithium-ion battery, thereby improves energy efficiency of end products that leads to reduced production costs and improved quality of products. Among dispersant type, the naphthalene sulfonate is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period in terms of value. Naphthalene sulfonates have excellent wetting and dispersing properties. Naphthalene sulfonate is used as a dispersant in lithium-ion batteries to give an optimal dispersing effect. It also, increases the energy retention capacity of the battery. These factors are essential for the manufacturing of lithium-ion battery, majorly electrodes. Thus, it will drive the market for naphthalene sulfonate lithium-ion battery dispersant. On the basis of end-use, the electric vehicle segment accounted for the largest segment of the lithium-ion battery dispersant market in 2021. Increase in demand for high battery efficiency and longer energy retention rate is driving the market for lithium-ion batteries in automotive industry. Thus, growing usage of lithium-ion battery in automotive industry is expected to drive the market for this segment during the forecast period. Lithium-ion battery dispersant market in the Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period in terms of value, owing to the increasing investments in the automobile sector and rapid industrial growth. High growth in emerging economies of the region has made Asia Pacific a lucrative market for the manufacturers of lithium-ion battery. The growing industrialization in countries such as China and India have resulted in the high consumption of lithium-ion batteries, creating the market for lithium-ion battery dispersant.
