Assessment of China's Market for Lithium-ion Batteries
Published: March 20, 2016 Content info: 282 Pages
Description

GCiS estimated that the domestic mainland China market for lithium-ion batteries were worth RMB 71.8 Bn (or USD 11.5 Bn) in 2015. This report provides an in-depth understanding of the Lithium-ion Battery market in Mainland China. The report covers the overall market as well as providing detailed analysis on the four types of lithium-ion batteries and the cathode material sold in the Chinese market: LCO, NCM, LFP and LMO. All end-user segments are covered (cell phones, consumer electronics, notebook computers, electric tools, electric bikes, electric vehicles and energy storage systems). The report is based on a study of the production, sales, distribution and application of lithium-ion batteries across China, and in their predominant end-user industries (target market).

This GCiS market study draws on a three month, in-depth primary survey of 78 of the market's battery suppliers, cathode material suppliers, channel players and experts. Five-year projections (2015-2020) provided in the study will be indispensible to anyone looking to map out the course of this developing market. This report is essential reading for any professional needing accurate and detailed strategic information on this market.
