DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/nz9ppj/lithium_ion) has announced the addition of the "Lithium Ion Rechargeable Batteries - Beyond Consumer And To Electric Vehicles And Electric Storage Systems - Global Markets, Technologies, Competitors And Opportunities: 2014-2019 Analysis And Forecasts" report to their offering.

Electric vehicle boom is set to resume. The global xEV (electric vehicles of all types) market penetration has been disappointing in the past several years as early editions of EV and PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicles) models have underachieved market expectations. To date, xEV sales represent only 0.2% of global passenger car sales. This slow adoption is attributed to such factors as high battery costs, limited EV range, nascent charging infrastructure and the lack of consumer awareness for EVs.

However, battery makers, OEMs and governments around the world are striving to make EVs a commercially viable product that can compete with ICE (internal combustion engine) vehicles in terms of cost and performance. With next generation batteries (cheaper and higher density) to be introduced over the next few years, the xEV market is at the cusp of taking off in earnest. By 2017, 102 new EV models and 49 PHEV new models will be launched globally. As for EVs, new models from Chinese, Japanese and German carmakers will account for 74% of total new offerings.
