NEW YORK, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
In the current roadmap on emerging battery technologies, LiMPO4 cathodes raises high hope concerning the possibility of efficient energy storage at high charge and discharge rate, thus raising the technical potential of hybrid and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles as well as wind and solar energy storage. Moreover, because of the safety issues raised by Li-ion batteries, LiMPO4 cathodes are of crucial interest for battery manufacturers.
In the 2011 report we noticed key acquisitions to complete technology portfolio (Phostech by Süd Chemie, Süd Chemie by Clariant, High Power Lithium by Dow Chemical and CIBA by BASF), 2012 is the year of finalisation of licensing deals and the setting up of JV for a high scale manufacturing phase. The importance in number of LiMPO4 manufacturing patents confirms the current increase of production phase and also the increasing difficulties to protect innovative LiMPO4 chemistry in the field.
The 2012 version of LiMPO4 patent landscape details the emergence (and strong recent implication) of several new players (IRICO, BASF, ALEEES, University of Tsinghua) as well as the strengthening of companies in the field (Toyota, GS Yuasa). With a total of 2900 patents analysed, this 2012 version has several segmentation that helps you navigate through the landscape:
- The coverage of LiMPO4 in the cell (Manufacturing, Material…)
- The use of LiMPO4 within the cathode (Only LiMPO4, Mixture or coating other active material…)
- The type of claimed material (LiFePO4, LiFe1-xMnxPO4, LiNiPO4…)
- The type of carbon form factor (CNT, nanoparticle, nanofiber…)
- The type of claimed partial substitution of Li, P or O
In a sector where more than 2900 patents and patent applications have been filed, this « Lithium Metal Phosphate batteries - Patent mapping » provides you with a comprehensive panorama of the intellectual property landscape and helps you:- Position your company's R&D and IP Portfolio notably regarding to the University of Texas patent portfolio- Identify key inventors and key players involved in specific compositions of cathode- Understand the collaboration networks and theirs dynamics
N.B.: A three months access to the full patent database is also included
