London, UK (PRWEB) April 08, 2013
In 2012, the world shipments of the lithium secondary batteries were estimated at over 4.9 billion cells. The largest shipments were registered in the third quarter – nearly 1.28 billion cells. Despite the growth expectation between Q3 and Q4, the total LIB shipments were steady given the decline of the demand for the cylindrical type LIBs from 495 million to 417 million cells. The polymer type LIB market sector enlarged from 242 million to 328 million cells during Q1-Q4 of 2012. This sector is likely to account for almost 33.5% of the total demand for IT applications.
Panasonic, Samsung SDI and LG Chem are the leading competitors in the global IT LIB market. Meanwhile, the most prominent Chinese companies such as ATL, Coslight, Lishen and B&K tend to increase their market shares.
