The lithium iron phosphate battery is also known as LFP battery wherein "LFP" stands for "lithium ferrophosphate", is a type of rechargeable battery, specifically a lithium-ion battery, which uses LiFePO4 as a cathode material for high power applications. Lithium iron phosphate batteries have a number of uses in electric vehicles, energy storage devices, power tools, and electric bicycles among others. But the key use of Lithium Iron Phosphate battery is its use power batteries for electric vehicles. Lithium Iron Phosphate has several advantages such as long cycle life, non-explosive, high safety and high temperature resistance.
The factors that propel the growth of the global Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery market share include continuously increasing population and the depletion of fossil fuel reserves have shifted the focus of countries all over the world towards renewable power generation. And so, as a consequence of growing focus towards renewable energy to address the climate change and also improving upon the energy conservation is projected to fuel the growth of the market share.
In addition, there has also been a rising focus towards the incorporation of renewable energy resources with power grid networks which is boosting the growth of the market share. These hybrid power systems and power grids use lithium iron phosphate batteries as a backup. The global Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery market share is classified on the basis of applications and geography.
On the basis of applications, the global Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery market share is classified as EVs and HEVs (electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicle), Renewable power and Consumer electronics. Among the applications, EVs and HEVs segment is projected to account a major share of the global Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery market research report.
Unconventional energy storage systems that have the ability to boost the performance and vehicle efficacy are a significant area of focus for the EV manufacturers. As a result of long cycle time and high energy density, lithium iron phosphate batteries are estimated to be the most ideal choice as far as substitute energy storage systems are concerned. And so, the growth in the demand for EVs in countries such as China is expected to uplift the demand for lithium iron phosphate battery (LFP) batteries. On the basis of geography, the global Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery market share is classified as North America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Latin America.
The North American region consists of the U.S. and Canada. Latin America region consists of Mexico, Brazil, Peru, Chile, and others. The Western European region consists of Germany, England, France, Spain, Italy, Nordic countries, Belgium, The Netherlands, and Luxembourg. The Eastern European region consists of Poland and Russia. Asia Pacific region consists of China, India, Japan, ASEAN, Australia, and New Zealand. The Middle East and Africa region consists of GCC, Southern Africa, and North Africa.
In case of geographical region, Asia Pacific is projected to account a major share of the global Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery market research report. The key factors that drive the growth of this region is due to the increased focus on decreasing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the upsurge in the number of power outages, and the availability of large producers that provide lithium iron phosphate batteries at comparatively lower prices.
Some of the key players that fuel the growth of the global Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery market research report include A123 Systems, BYD, Electrical Vehicle Power System Technology, Hi Power and Optimum Nano Energy. The other prominent players that are operating in the global Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery market include GAIA, K2Energy, LiFeBATT, Phostech, Pihsiang Energy Technology, Pulead Technology Industry, and Victory Battery Technology.
