Abstract: Immense progress is required in the field of energy conversion and storage to achieve cost-effective high-performance batteries which could meet future energy demands. It also becomes mandatory to utilize the abundant materials from the earth's crust, along with safe conversion and storage of electrochemical reactions. In this perspective, aluminium ion batteries (AIBs) could be a viable alternative for the conventional lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). In this mini-review, we focus on the challenges and the latest growth related to the cathode active materials (metal oxides, metal sulfides and other hybrid systems) in AIBs. The development of highly efficient, low cost and safe energy storage systems based on aluminium ion batteries is much explored. Still, commercialization remains a theoretical one, hence this review highlights the significance of the developed materials and their shortcomings that need to be addressed for the commercialization of aluminium ion batteries in the future.
