In the past, lithium batteries were mainly used in portable electronic products such as digital cameras, mobile phones, and notebook computers. With the global emphasis on energy conservation and environmental protection and the advancement of lithium battery technology, their applications have further spread to electric vehicles, electric bicycles, and electric bicycles. In fields such as energy storage, the lithium battery industry is undergoing rapid development. In recent years, the domestic lithium battery industry has formed a relatively complete industrial chain through continuous development and accumulation, including upstream lithium mineral resources, midstream lithium battery materials, and downstream battery production.
Shangpu Consulting industry analysts pointed out that in recent years, my country’s lithium battery output has grown rapidly. In 2011, the output of lithium batteries in my country reached 2.966 billion, a year-on-year increase of 10.4%. In 2012, my country's lithium battery output reached 4.178 billion, a year-on-year increase of 40.86%. In 2013, the scale of my country's lithium-ion battery industry (including lithium-ion batteries, equipment, and materials) continued to expand, and the global market share steadily increased. According to data, from January to December 2013, among the main products of my country's battery manufacturing industry, the cumulative output of lithium-ion batteries was 4.768 billion, a cumulative year-on-year increase of 16.9%. According to analysis, from January to December 2013, the cumulative export delivery value of my country's battery manufacturing industry decreased by 4% year-on-year, and the cumulative production-sales rate reached 97.7%. Among them, the export delivery value of the month in December decreased by 2% year-on-year, and the month's production-sales rate was 97.2%. . In terms of benefits, from January to December, the cumulative main business income of battery manufacturing enterprises above designated size increased by 11.4% year-on-year, the total realized profit fell by 0.5% year-on-year, and the total tax completed increased by 24.8% year-on-year. Among them, the main business income of lithium-ion products increased by 17.8% year-on-year, the total realized profit increased by 28.9% year-on-year, and the total tax completed increased by 19.6% year-on-year.
The data shows that from January to December 2013, the output of my country's lithium-ion battery industry reached 4,768,165,300 (naturally only). The top three provinces in output were Guangdong, Jiangsu, and Guangxi, respectively, accounting for the proportion of the total output of the lithium-ion battery industry in the country. They are 35.47%, 15.91%, 11.83%, and the three places together account for 48.91% of the country.
The "2014-2018 China Lithium Battery Industry Market Survey Research Report" released by Shangpu Consulting pointed out that in the context of global resource scarcity and environmental degradation, new energy vehicles have moved from concept to industry boom due to their advantages in clean energy and pollution-free emissions. As it develops, the power battery, which is the core link of new energy vehicles, has also ushered in a good development opportunity. In order to meet the requirements of pure electric vehicles, nickel-metal hydride batteries will be replaced by lithium-ion batteries with better performance. Therefore, Chinese companies should continue to strengthen technological innovation and strive to improve the quality and safety performance of domestic lithium battery products, so that lithium batteries can be widely used in the field of new energy vehicles and increase their market share. At the same time, in the entire lithium battery industry chain, lithium battery material companies with leading technology, high-end products, and obvious scale advantages also have better investment space.
