Free eBook: Designing Better Battery Materials
When so much of our modern life relies on Li-ion batteries researchers and engineers are always looking into new ways to improve battery performance, safety, and cycle life. They are drilling down to focus on specific aspects of battery materials to consider new approaches for improvement. A team at CSEM SA is assembling Li-ion batteries using screen printing to deposit functional inks on the front/reverse side of the separator, while Michigan Technical University is using small-scale mechanical characterization techniques to show the fabrication design rules for solid electrolytes. Malvern Panalytical highlights how rotational rheometry can help manufacturers use data to produce high performance electrodes. Carl Zeiss Microscopy demonstrates how implementing a suite of instrumentation can provide a unique perspective into Li-ion batteries that may lead to advancements in material design.

Battery Separators Market by Battery Type, End-use Industry, Material And Region - Global Forecast to 2022
The global battery separator market is projected to reach USD 5.13 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 12.5%, from USD 2.85 billion in 2017. Stringent government regulations regarding reduction of carbon emission, inclination of automotive manufacturers toward production of EVs, and rising demand for smartphones due to rapid urbanization are the key factors that are driving the demand for battery separators. Moreover, increasing industrialization and higher dependency on technology leads to a demand for consumer electronics, and constant development in these areas has further increased the adoption of compact batteries. This, in turn, is expected to fuel the demand for battery separators. However, low heat resistance of battery separator materials and various reported cases of battery failures could lead to a lower the consumption of battery separators.
