Frost & Sullivan Hosts Webinar:
Chemicals & Materials are the Key to Future Success of Electric Vehicles
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – Feb. 24, 2011
All of the major automotive manufacturers today develop electric vehicles. This determines the next generation of vehicles and is a means for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to differentiate themselves by staying ahead of the competition.
In order to be competitive, these vehicles must continue to improve, especially in the range they offer between recharges. Electric vehicle batteries, therefore, need considerable improvement in terms of energy storage capacity, size, weight and cost. The chemical industry can help achieve these goals with the development of innovative materials, chemicals and solutions.
This briefing will assess opportunities for chemical and material companies and will provide an indication of where they can best support the development of this emerging market.
A very broad range of chemicals is needed for battery construction, including separators, anodes, cathodes, electrolytes as well as binders and casings. Chemical companies which have technologies that could be used in batteries for electric vehicles will benefit from this webinar.
"With the electric vehicle batteries market showing signs of genuine potential in this decade, chemical companies are beginning to rise to the challenge and are partnering with the key battery producers to supply the required volumes and enhance existing battery technology,"
Robert Outram, program manager for Frost & Sullivan’s Chemicals, Materials & Food group.
