Market For Lithium-Ion Batteries Booming Based on Growth of Electric Vehicles (EV)

Palm Beach, FL – January 27, 2021 – Over the last few years, the demand for lithium-ion battery has been rising at an ever increasing rate. The lithium-ion battery market growth is driven by surge in need for smartphones and other electronics devices and increase in electric vehicles are some of the key factors that significantly drive the growth of the global lithium-ion battery market. Implementation of stringent government regulations to control increasing pollution levels is further expected to augment the market growth. However, high price of lithium-ion batteries is anticipated to restrain the market growth. Lithium-ion batteries can be recharged hundreds of times and are more stable than other types and have a higher energy density, voltage power and lower self-discharge rates than other rechargeable batteries. This increases power efficiency as a single cell has more charge retention than other forms of batteries. These features are, in turn, expected to fuel the growth of the Li-ion battery market size. A report from Allied Market Research projects that the global lithium-ion battery market is projected to hit $129.3 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 18.0% from 2020 to 2027.    Active stocks in the markets this week include Workhorse Group Inc. (NASDAQ: WKHS), Altair International Corp. (OTCPK: ATAO), Fisker Inc. (NYSE: FSR), Electra Meccanica Vehicles Corp. (NASDAQ: SOLO), XPeng Inc. (NYSE: XPEV).

 

The Allied Market Research report said: “Various components such as cathode, anode, electrolytic solution, and others (foils, binders, and separators) are covered within the scope of the report. The cathode segment was the highest contributor to the market. This is attributed to the fact that cathode is widely used in the manufacturing of lithium-ion batteries. In addition, it is used to build positive electrodes for battery cells. Cathode materials, such as lithium cobalt oxide, lithium iron phosphate, lithium ion manganese oxide battery, and lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide (are used in manufacturing of lithium-ion batteries. “

 

Altair International Corp. (OTCPK: ATAO) BREAKING NEWS:  ALTAIR PROVIDES UPDATE ON LITHIUM EXTRACTION AND BATTERY RECYCLING TECHNOLOGY – Altair International Corp. (the “Company” or “Altair”) is pleased to provide an update on its previously announced partnership with St-Georges Eco-Mining Corp. (CSE: SX) (OTC: SXOOF) (FSE: 85G1) (“St-Georges”) a Canadian public company engaged in the development of new Lithium extraction technologies.

 

On December 1, 2020 the two companies entered into a Binding agreement that would allow Altair access to St-Georges’ patent-pending Lithium processing technology for Altair’s Nevada based Stonewall project and most importantly bring together the two companies to jointly develop a patentable industrial scale process for Electric Vehicle Lithium-ion battery (LIB) recycling.

 

As the global Electric Vehicle (EV) market heats up over the coming decade, the demand for battery metals is expected to outpace current production. Even with increased energy density and charge cycles, Lithium based batteries for EVs, laptops, phones and other mobile devices will create cumulative waste challenges both in the environmental footprint of production and end-of-life LIB disposal.

 

Altair and St-Georges recognize that new optimized recycling technologies will offer valuable solutions to both a waste-management and battery metal supply. Selective, economic and responsible metal extraction of spent LIBs will be an integral part of the multi-billion dollar green economy and play a crucial part in the future of EV dominance.

 

At present our two companies are working diligently to complete a long-form partnership agreement before the end of the month. As well, St-Georges has named Paul Pelosi, Jr, a member of Altair’s Advisory Board, to the position of President of EVSX Corp, the subsidiary that St-Georges has dedicated to the development of our recycling technology program.   Read this entire release for the Altair International news at:  https://www.financialnewsmedia.com/news-atao/
