Lithium–air batteries, also known as breathing batteries, harness the energy produced when lithium metal reacts with oxygen from the air. The breathing battery market is estimated to rise significantly during the forecast period primarily due to the fact that the positive electrode of breathing battery made from lightweight porous carbon, and the lithium ions are packed into the electrolyte, which floods into the spongy material. Furthermore, the cost of raw material required to manufacture breathing battery is low as compared to conventional batteries.

The global breathing battery market was valued at US$ 16.5 Mn in 2021 and is expected to reach US$ 33.9 Mn by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 8.4% between 2022 and 2030.

Global Breathing Battery Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, end-use industries such as automotive sector, power storage sector, and others and most of the breathing battery manufacturers experienced disturbance in supply chain. Due to the lockdown measures, there was a shortage of workers at laundry equipment manufacturing facilities. Furthermore, on the supply chain side, there was unavailability of raw materials for the manufacturing of laundry equipment components due to complete lockdown or partial lockdowns. Due to delay in the supply of raw materials and components, the manufacturing companies were unable to deliver the products in the market.

Global Breathing Battery Market- Restraint 

The main problem is that chemical reactions produce unwanted side products that clog the electrodes, destroy the battery materials or short-circuit the device. But the high overpotential, the sluggish oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) and oxygen evolution reaction (OER) kinetics, and the poor cycling stability critically restrict their practical applications. Moreover, Lithium-air batteries last approximately two months and have low storage capacity, also the charging of batteries is very low which acts as the major restraints for the lithium-air battery market.

Among battery type, Lithium air battery segment held a dominant position in the global breathing battery market in 2021

The Lithium air battery segment held a dominant position in the global breathing battery market in 2021, accounting for 30.4% share.

Major players operating in the global breathing battery market include IBM Corporation, Zinc8 Energy Solutions Inc., PolyPlus Battery Company, Panasonic, Tesla, Fuji Pigment, and Breathe Battery Technologies Limited

Breathing battery is battery which generates electricity through the lithium oxidation process. As compared to standard lithium-ion batteries, the breathing battery combines the benefits of both lithium and oxygen, providing approximately 5 to 20 times the specific energy and over 3 times the power. The breathing battery market is increasing due to the use of breathing batteries in automotive, medical, defence & military, electronics and other industries. Moreover, breathing battery have the capacity to hold more than 40 times the charge of a standard Li-Ion battery of comparable weight. . In breathing batteries the cathode is oxygen and anode is made up of lithium. During charging and discharging, lithium ions move back and placed between the two electrodes, sending electrons around the external circuit to power a device.

Market Dynamics

The lithium-air battery market is projected to record a CAGR of more than 8.4% during the forecast period.
