Several emerging economies globally have announced targets to adopt EVs in the near future, creating ample growth opportunities for the EVs as well as its battery manufacturers.
— Rising global temperatures have become a major cause of concern, which is being seen as a consequence of burning of fossil fuels for meeting energy needs from time immemorial. Fossil fuels are made of organic matter and their burning releases a huge amount of carbon dioxide and other gases in the atmosphere. These gases are termed as greenhouse gases, as they get trapped into the atmosphere and gradually increase the temperature. This temperature change has not only caused the melting of glaciers and rising of sea levels, it has disturbed the climatic pattern as well, with frequent floods and droughts occurring at the same time in the same country/climatic zone.
Further, the increasing prices of crude oil across the globe, has also motivated governments to find alternatives to conventional energy sources. In the transportation sector, efforts are being made to popularize electric and hybrid vehicles among users. The International Energy Agency reported that the global car fleet grew to approximately 5.1 million in 2018, registering a 2 million increase in sales from 2017. Governments of many countries are actively providing their residents with an efficient and sustainable transport system.
Electric and hybrid vehicles use lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries for storing electrical energy. These batteries are rechargeable and are made of many cells. They are light weight and have a high energy density. Lithium batteries have different structural designs, such as pouch, prismatic, and cylindrical. During 2014–2018, Li-ion batteries with the cylindrical structural design sold, accounted for the maximum cumulative energy storage capacity. In fact, in the coming years as well, they would continue to amount for the highest installed energy storage capacity among all Li-on batteries of different structural designs. The automotive lithium-ion battery market is predicted to register a 15.9% CAGR during the forecast period (2019–2024).
Electric vehicle manufacturers are now increasingly using lithium-nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC) batteries, gradually shifting from lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) batteries. The latter were heavier and occupied more space in the vehicle; these shortcomings have been addressed by NMC batteries. Besides being lighter in weight and compact, NMC batteries are capable of providing higher ranges in passenger cars in a single charge. This is due to the greater energy density of these batteries that facilitate a higher vehicle range. Furthermore, the prices of these batteries have reduced significantly, which is further contributing to their acceptance among manufacturers.
Many developed countries have already included electric vehicles in their transportation system and this is yet to be done in emerging economies. With growing environmental concerns, many countries across the world have announced the adoption of electric vehicles in the coming future. For instance, a Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid &) Electric Vehicles (FAME-II) program, was launched by the Indian government in 2019; this is an ambitious plan of the country to popularize and adopt electric vehicles in the near future.

Further, in the ASEAN region, Thailand is one of the largest consumers of electric vehicles. In an initiative to popularize these vehicles, the Thailand Board of Investment announced their plans of reducing the excise duty from 8% to 2% on electric vehicles, thereby boosting the automotive lithium-ion battery market, as storage batteries are an essential component of electric vehicles.
