Polyethylene Battery Separators Market Dynamics and Trends

The rapid growth in the electric vehicles market is the major driver for the polyethylene battery separators market. The initiatives towards sustainable transportation are resulting in significant growth of electric mobility across the globe. The production and sale of electrically chargeable vehicles (ECVs) are on the rise, particularly in China, Europe, and the U.S. According to the Edison Electric Institute, EV sales in the U.S. increased by 40% over 2017 and the total number of EVs on U.S. roads reached 890,000. Polyethylene battery separators are considered the preferred choice owing to their high chemical stability over their counterparts. Global battery separators are focusing on increasing their production facilities to meet the growing demand from EV manufacturers. For instance, Japan-based battery materials manufacturer Toray Industries, Inc. has commissioned the establishment of a production facility for electric vehicle battery separators in Hungary.

By geography, the Asia Pacific region is estimated to experience a growth of over 7% in terms of PE battery separator sales value during the forecast period. The growth can be majorly attributable to the rising production of ECVs in China
