  • Lithium has risen in popularity in recent years as electric vehicles have started gaining mass attention.
  • Li-ion cells have several industrial uses, notably for the development of batteries for EVs.

Lithium has several industrial uses and is a key component for the manufacture and production of rechargeable batteries, which can be used in smartphones and other such electronic devices and also for the development of batteries that are fitted in electric vehicles.

Given the recent rise of electric vehicles, this has led the demand for lithium to more than double in the last ten years. While the pandemic temporarily impacted the sector, it is once again set to bounce back.

According to data from industry research company IBIS World, while the lithium battery manufacturing sector suffered a decline of 21.1 per cent between 2020-2021 due to a collapse in demand, the sector is now on the pathway to recovery.

The report added that the lithium battery manufacturing industry’s revenue rose at a compound annual rate of 12 per cent touching £211.5 million, between 2016-17 and 2021-2022.

Most of the UK publicly listed lithium stocks include companies involved in mining. However, there are some who are involved in battery making, while the rest are privately held companies.

Accutronics is a privately held and UK based battery design and manufacturer and is one of the leading companies in the UK which manufacturers lithium ion batteries. It has among the highest market share in the Li-ion battery manufacturing industry.  

Accutronics uses small scanners which are half the size of a standard credit card as a way to boost the life cycle of diagnostic devices, which are used by maintenance workers working on automated unsupervised robots.

This allows the company to increasingly move towards a lights-out manufacturing approach, as the sector has seen increasing pressure from the ongoing pandemic to reduce its physical workforce and move towards full automation.
