World EV Traction Battery Market Research Study by IDTechEx Now Available at

London, UK (PRWEB) August 20, 2012

The growing market for traction batteries is predicted to exceed USD 55 billion in only ten years, making it a hot market to develop. This includes high performance batteries of up to USD 500,000 for military, marine and solar aircraft use. Interestingly enough, a growing number of low cost batteries are happily used for e-bikes even though several new technologies will appear and should disrupt the scenery. While its not easy deciphering expert calls and prognostics, this trend shows it will only grow and become an everyday reality in the world of automobiles.

New market research study Electric Vehicle Traction Batteries 2012-2022 prepared by IDTechEx has been recently published by Market Publishers Ltd.
