Recent Developments in Battery Separators Market Industry

  1. In October 2023, Asahi Kasei is set to expand its coating capacity for lithium-ion battery (LIB) separators, with the aim of meeting the increasing demand for electric vehicles, particularly in North America. The expansion will raise the company’s coating capacity to approximately 1.2 billion m2/year, enabling the supply of coated separators for batteries equivalent to 1.7 million electric vehicles. This investment is part of Asahi Kasei’s strategy to strengthen its LIB separator supply infrastructure for automotive applications and to support the significant growth in electric vehicle production, especially in North America. The expansion will involve the installation of new coating lines at existing Asahi Kasei facilities in the US, Japan, and South Korea, with the start-up scheduled in succession from the first half of fiscal year 2026.
  2. In December 2023, Solvay has finalized an agreement with the U.S. Department of Energy grant to build a facility in Augusta, GA, to manufacture battery-grade PVDF, which is used as a lithium-ion binder and separator coating in electric vehicle batteries. The facility, expected to be operational in 2026. This agreement will significantly strengthen Solvay’s position in the battery separator market.
  3. In January 2022, ENTEK acquired AEF, a leading provider of material handling systems. Building both extrusion and material handling equipment, ENTEK expanded its manufacturing capabilities in its recently completed facility in Henderson, NV, offering the required space and resources to support the expansion of the merged businesses.
