Global battery production - Tracing the manufacturing footprint

Global battery production - Tracing the manufacturing footprint

Publication Date: 04/03/2022

As the electric vehicle segment speeds towards gaining the mainstream tag, the automotive industry is in the process of building up sufficient lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery capacity to cater to the strong demand from EVs. Lithium-ion (Li-ion) continues to be the most dominant battery chemistry due to its high density and comparatively lower cost, and is expected to remain the preferred technology for the most part of this decade.

The report is based on the EV battery capacity forecast and battery demand forecast database developed by IHS Markit in February 2022. The capacity forecast is for 2021-2027 period and tracks more than 140 plants in five key regions— Greater China, Europe, North America, Japan/Korea, and South Asia. The database gives details on what will be the manufacturing capacity at each of these plants and the expected level of utilization .

The report analysis the database to offer intelligence on key suppliers and regions to understand where the market could see overutilization or underutilization of the installed capacity for Li-ion battery cells. It also talks about the promising startups and their strategy in terms of building production capabilities and how they could influence the demand and supply of Li-ion cells.
