Charged up: Heavy investments in research and development will foster industry growth

Over the five years to 2017, revenue for the Lithium Battery Manufacturing industry is expected to rise due to increasing demand and application for lithium batteries. Prior to the five-year period, lithium production in the United States was composed of battery manufacturers catering to niche markets. Improving technology, however, has spurred the mass production of lithium batteries for automotive, consumer electronic and other applications. At the same time, the prevalence of low-cost imports will constrain sales of domestically made batteries. Consequently, industry revenue is expected to grow over the five years to 2017. Over the five years to 2022, the industry will experience constrained growth as demand grows, but imports continue to supplant domestic manufacturers...purchase to read more.
