Amprius Technologies, Enevate Corporation, and Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. – PROMINENT MARKET PARTICIPANTS IN SILICON ANODE BATTERY MARKET

Silicon anode battery technology is still in its nascent stage and several companies in the market are capitalizing on the development and mass adoption of the technology. The Silicon anode battery market is expected to surge in the coming years as the technology is applicable for various industries, including the consumer electronics industry, aerospace sector, and automotive industry. The industry players in the sectors mentioned earlier invest significant amounts in adopting newer and robust technologies in order to enhance their respective products.

Amprius Technologies, Enevate Corporation, and Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. are some of the key market players operating in the global silicon anode battery market. The listing of key these players is derived by considering multiple factors such as overall revenue, silicon anode battery product/ technology portfolio, geographic reach, investment in R&D, venture capital investments, market initiatives, patents, investment in technology development, joint ventures, and other market-related activities. Apart from these players, there are many other notable players contributing to the growth of silicon anode battery technology market such as Hitachi Chemicals Co. Ltd., Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., Nanotek Instruments, Nexeon Ltd., Shin-Etsu Chemical Co. Ltd., Sila Nanotechnologies Inc., Targray Technologies International, and Zeptor Corporation. In March 2020, Enevate Corporation has announced a new generation of its lithium-ion cells, which will also be produced in large quantities is to be installed in series-produced cars in a few years’ time. The specified charging speeds sound impressive. The new 4th generation XFC energy technology with silicon-dominated anode technology allows a 5-minute charge to 75 per cent capacity at 800 Wh/L and 340 Wh/kg cell energy density. Further, in 2019, INCJ, Ltd. (“INCJ”) announced that it has revoked its decision to support Zeptor Corporation a developer of next-generation lithium-ion battery electrodes. The revocation is in response to Zeptor’s decision to dissolve the company and no longer conduct specific business activities as stipulated in the former Industrial Competitiveness Enhancement Act.
