Lithium-ion (Li-ion) polymer battery is a rechargeable battery that increasingly finding their way into portable and mobile devices. These highly efficient battery technologies pack more energy into a smaller size than almost any other battery type. Li-ion Battery Protection ICs are preventive devices designed to provide an accurate monitor and trigger threshold for overcurrent protection during high discharge/charge current operation or battery overcharge conditions. These batteries are integrated with power MOSFET for preventing large external short circuit current and the protection circuits against the excess discharge-current. Lithium polymer battery is expected to see adoption at a large scale in the hand-held electronic devices such as laptops, mobiles, and cameras among others. Any electronic devices that requires frequent burst of power for a long period of time can be powered with a lithium polymer battery. Furthermore, to avoid further short circuits is a primary concern for every consumer and manufacturer. High demand of lithium-ion battery in consumer electronics devices, and rising demand for High Accuracy over current detection in these electronic devices is expected to boost the demand of Li-ion Battery Protection ICs Market. However, less durability and reliability is some factors which hindering the growth of the market. Efforts are being taken by many companies to upgrade their research and development activities to introduce innovations in this field. Furthermore, rising adoption of IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) is key market trend which creates ample opportunities for manufacturers to sustain in this market.
