Product Overview: Ethylene Carbonate (EC)
Ethylene carbonate, an organic compound with formula (CH₂O)₂CO, is a colorless-yellowish crystalline solid substance, and are being used as a component with high permittivity of electrolytes in Lithium-Ion batteries. It is obtained by reaction between carbon dioxide and ethylene oxide and can be classified as carbonate ester of carbonic acid and ethylene glycol. Ethylene carbonate is high-polar solvent and has ability to dissolve huge amounts of electrolyte, and is mainly used in electrolyte solution in Lithium batteries or Lithium-Ion batteries.
Dynamics: Ethylene Carbonate Market
Increasing production and sales of electric vehicles (EVs), hybrid cars across the globe is resulting in higher demand for Lithium-Ion batteries, which in turn, is anticipated to support global ethylene carbonate market growth. In addition, rapid industrialization and increasing demand for the product from various industry verticals such as consumer electronics and automotive among other end-use industries are other factors expected to further support global market growth to some extent. Moreover, changing government policies towards use of fossil fuels, combined with offering of various subsidies for adoption of electric vehicles is resulting in need for Lithium-Ion batteries in electric four-wheelers and two-wheelers. This factor is anticipated to have a positive impact on the target market growth. Furthermore, as per the comparative study between electric vehicles and internal combustion engine vehicles conducted by the United States Council for Automotive Research LLC (USCAR) in 2012, electric vehicles emitted 62 g/km of CO2, while that for the latter type of vehicle was 187 g/km of CO2. In addition, the government of France began offering premium under the bonus-malus system (BMS) for purchase of new electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles from January 2016, with bonus ranging from US$ 882.4 to US$ 7412.3 based on emission levels of CO2. Rapidly growing electronics industry, combined with technological advancements in the field are expected to result in higher demand for Lithium-Ion batteries and ethylene carbonate. This is anticipated to support market growth substantially.
However, overheating of Lithium-Ion batteries and inadequate battery charging infrastructure act as major restraints for lithium battery electrolytes and is a factor that could hamper growth of the global ethylene carbonate market.
Development of a solution to avoid overheating of batteries is projected to create new revenue opportunities for Lithium-Ion battery manufacturers and indirectly for ethylene carbonate providers.
Segment Analysis: Global Ethylene Carbonate Market
