Li-ion Battery Market in South Korea 2015-2019

A Li-ion battery is a rechargeable battery with the highest electrochemical potential. A positive terminal, a negative terminal, and an electrolyte between the terminals constitute the main parts of the battery. The basic principle of working of Li-ion batteries is to generate power when ions move from a negatively charged anode to the positively charged cathode. When the battery discharges, the movement of ions from the anode to the cathode releases energy. On the other hand, during charging, electricity from the adapter forces the ions to return to the anode in the battery. Once the adapter is removed, this cycle starts again. With time, the charge hold capacity of a Li-ion battery deteriorates because of lack of movement of ions, which are trapped in the anode. Some benefits of using Li......

Li-ion Battery Market for EVs in China 2015-2019

A Li-ion battery is used as a power source in EVs for transportation. It is used as an alternative source of power in PHEVs and a primary source of power in BEVs. A Li-ion battery powers the electric motor used for propulsion in a BEV. A PHEV uses both an IC engine and an electric motor for propulsion. The use of double fuel system makes PHEVs expensive, efficient, and a preferred choice among end-users. The use of battery-operated vehicles helps to reduce carbon emissions and the dependence on fossil fuels. The battery used in EVs is automatically charged during the transportation through regenerative braking mechanism and is completely refilled or recharged by a voltage ranging from 110 to 440 volts. The application of Li-ion battery is higher in BEVs and PHEVs, because of its high energ......

Hydraulic Fracturing Market in the APAC Region 2015-2019

Hydraulic fracturing or hydraulic fracking is a technique of well stimulation in which a fluid, at a high pressure (typically water mixed with sand and chemicals), is injected into an oil well to create minor fractures in the deep rock foundations to facilitate the movement of natural gas, petroleum, and brine from deep reserves to the well. The technique of fracturing is common for shale gas and oil recovery wells. Usually, this type of stimulation is carried out once during the productive life of the well and increases the productivity of the well. The analysts forecast Hydraulic Fracturing Market in APAC Region to grow at a CAGR of 18.4 percent over the period 2014-2019.

Global Microgrid Market 2015-2019

A microgrid is a type of power grid, which is much smaller than the conventional centralized electrical grid. It is localized and functions autonomously or in a hybrid mode with the conventional grid. Microgrids produce, distribute, and control the flow of energy to consumers; however, all these activities are implemented locally or in integration with the traditional grid. Microgrids are used during power failures in the central grid system as they can operate independently by isolating their generation loads. Moreover, developers and owners of microgrids sell the excess power to utility companies. The analysts forecast Global Microgrid market to grow at a CAGR of 18.72 percent in terms of revenue and at 17.29 percent in terms of microgrid installed capacity over the period 2014-2019. ......
