Lithium-ion batteries were developed by Japan, whose companies used to dominate the global battery market by virtue of technological superiority. But with the rise of Chinese and South Korean companies, Japan's advantage in this field has been wiped out, and its market has been carved up by Korean and Then Chinese companies.
The lithium battery
In order to regain the global market share lost to Chinese and Korean companies, Japan wants to develop new batteries.
Recently, According to Nikkei Chinese reported, Kyoto University professor Takeshi Abe, who is leading Japan's new battery development project, said that in order to regain world market share, Japan has to develop new batteries. To this end, Japan needs to promote cooperation between companies and universities by sending researchers to universities.
Abe also said that Japan has learned from the rapid imitation of lithium-ion batteries, so the project does not disclose important lessons to the outside world, and the publication of the paper is limited to those parts that are not afraid of imitation.
But things are not so simple, in addition to Japan, Europe and the United States and China and South Korea are also actively promoting battery research. At least Japan is ahead in innovative battery research such as fluoride batteries, Abe said. Even if Japanese companies lose out on price, Japanese batteries rely on safety and reliability to gain market share, he says.
Japan will develop innovative batteries that exceed lithium-ion batteries for pure electric vehicles (EVs) in both performance and cost, mainly fluoride batteries and zinc anode batteries.
