  • Lithium Battery Market Dynamics - Materials Cell and Application Requirement- 1Q19
    Membership: Lithium Battery Market Dynamics - Materials Cell and Application Requirement
    IT Battery Trend Due to high component inventory in 4Q18, the demand for NB battery isn’t expected to be strong in 2Q19. At the same time, polymer battery cell price will drop 5-10%. Increasing the charging voltage of battery cell to 4.3-4.4V is still the only way to enlarge energy density of NB and cell phone batteries. New Energy Vehicle Strategy and Battery Type Development In terms of the mass production of 21700 cylindrical cell, battery price is expected to decline. Besides, with the increase of product lifespan, the competitiveness can be improved. Electric vehicle battery in the US, Japan and Korea will focus on prismatic battery, and Chinese electric vehicle will mainly use polymer battery. E-cigarette Market Development Because e-cigarette appearance develops toward youth and lightness, the market demand for small battery will be boosted. At the same time, small battery cell production capacity will increase. Backup Power Development Trend Backup power will be the next key goal of lithium battery replacement for lead-acid battery, and the flexible spatial configuration of lithium battery will make decentralized architecture surpass centralized architecture.

    Membership: Lithium Battery Market Dynamics - Materials Cell and Application Requirement
    IT Application In 1Q18, the supplies of cylindrical battery and prismatic battery remain tight. Yet, SDI has cancelled the suspension of production and decided to supply prismatic battery in 2018, alleviating the tight supply situation for prismatic battery. The tight supply of cylindrical battery in 2018 will continue to happen. Cobalt price has surged, making LCO cell prices in 2Q18 rise massively. Due to the tight supply, the increase of cylindrical battery price will surpass 10%. Thus, the MNC battery combined lithium and cobalt materials will start to enter the market in 4Q18. If the material price keeps increasing, in 4Q18, battery cell price will reflect the material cost again. Power Application Tesla will increase energy density and reduce cobalt usage amount by enlarging battery cell volume and changing material percentage. With the current battery technology, when the penetration rate of new energy passenger vehicle reaches 15%, cobalt will be in short supply. The cost-effectiveness of energy storage battery for frequency offset will be higher than the general power adjustment (LL). China’s release of standard specifications and recycle standard for lithium battery cell and battery pack may help the reuse of lithium battery life cycle.
