DUBLIN, December 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/dvptfq/global_and) has announced the addition of the "Global and Chinese Li-ion Power Battery Industry Report , 2016-2020" report to their offering.
In 2014, the global electric vehicle sales volume reached 329,800 units, up 51.8% from a year earlier, including 115,500 plug-in hybrid electric vehicles and 214,300 battery electric vehicles. In the first half of 2015, this figure amounted to 204,300 units. Affected by lower oil prices, the sales volume of electric vehicles in Japan and the United States declined while that in China and Europe maintained faster growth.
In 2014, the global demand for Li-ion power battery for electric vehicles came to 9.8GWh, up 87% from a year earlier, of which the demand from passenger vehicles totaled 7.3GWh and commercial vehicles 2.5GWh. In H1 2015, the global demand for EV Li-ion power battery hit 7GWh, maintaining high growth
At present, manganese-series power battery, including NCM and LMO, occupies the mainstream status on a global scale, with the cost of battery packs generally standing at USD400-550/kWh, which reflects an obvious decline since 2014. The cylindrical NCA 18650 battery produced through coiling, though lower costs for its cells, is popular with automakers due to high BMS costs and safety; Similarly, because of poor comprehensive performance, low-cost LFP battery is only is used in China and the United States. However, the US automakers have gradually abandoned LFP batteries and turned to ternary materials-based and Mn-series batteries from Japanese and S. Korean companies. When it comes to the development trends in Li-ion power battery technology, passenger vehicles will mainly adopt manganese series and ternary materials-based batteries while commercial vehicles will primarily use LFP batteries and gradually turn to ternary materials-based batteries.
At present, no major technological breakthrough has not yet been made in power battery. It is estimated that the drop in prices for power battery mainly resulted from a fall in the costs of raw materials and economies of scale, but with a limited decline.
In 2014, China's power battery shipments totaled 3.7GWH, up 470% from a year earlier. Among them, the demand for passenger vehicle power batteries was 1.6GWh and that for commercial vehicles 2.1GWh. In H1 2015, China's power battery shipments came to 2.72GWh. As battery electric buses showed explosive growth in the second half of 2015, and if we calculate the new energy vehicle output based on 250,000 units for the full year, the corresponding battery demand will reach 11 GWh.
As far as Chinese Li-ion power battery manufacturers are concerned, in H1 2015, any of such companies as BYD, Guoxuan, ATL, Tianjin Lishen, OptimumNano, Boston Power, and Pride Battery has a battery output of 100MWH. The shipments of 13 major battery manufacturers accounted for an aggregate 71% in market share, of which BYD had the largest market share of 17%.
From the perspective of global trends, the support from big carmakers is vital to power battery manufacturers. Traditional consumer electronics companies are aggressively conducting transformation. On the other hand, battery materials manufacturers and vehicle manufacturers have also begun to enter this field through various ways. Thus, the first echelon represented by BYD, Guoxuan, Tianjin Lishen, and ATL and the second echelon including OptimumNano, Boston Power, and Pride Battery, BESK, Do-Fluoride Chemicals, CALB, and Shenzhen BAK have taken shape.
