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.
