Uneasy Lithium Battery Market

Since the beginning of this year, although the epidemic has brought about a certain impact on the global sales of electric vehicles, and the general sales performance has been mediocre, the lithium battery market that powers them has not been calm, and the competition on the supply side has become increasingly fierce.

Four Major Parts of Lithium Ion Battery

The above four pieces together with other auxiliary materials and structures form a closed chemical reaction vessel. Lithium ions travel between the positive electrode and the negative electrode through the electrolyte to achieve the purpose of storing energy (charging) and releasing energy (discharging, electricity). Unlike devices such as capacitors that directly store electrons, lithium-ion batteries store and release energy through chemical reactions.When charging, lithium ions are generated on the positive electrode of the battery, and the generated lithium ions move to the negative electrode through the electrolyte and are inserted. When we use the battery (that is, when it is discharged), the lithium ions embedded in the negative electrode are released and move back to the positive electrode.

The "Blood" of Lthium-ion Batteries

Electrolyte is one of the four key materials of lithium-ion batteries. It is called the "blood" of lithium-ion batteries. Its function is to conduct electrons between the positive and negative electrodes in the battery. It is also the important guarantee for lithium-ion battery to obtain the advantages of high voltage and high specific energy.

Global Lithium Battery Supply Chain

Driven by the rapid development of the European localized battery supply chain and strict environmental standards, five countries including Germany, the United Kingdom, Finland, France and Sweden have entered the top ten of the ranking.
A major focus of many raw material producing countries is how to enter the high value-added link of the value chain, and the winning factors in this link include the environmental footprint of the battery industry, low-cost clean electricity, skilled workers, and the promotion of batteries Incentive policies for demand growth.

    From a small point of view, lithium batteries provide the possibility to facilitate and enrich life. In the long run, the use of sustainable energy sources such as wind power, hydropower, and solar energy is the trend in the future. As an energy storage device, lithium batteries can save these energy sources and Use when needed to make the power generation device "decentralized".

    As cars gradually become "electric", lithium batteries have become the "favorite" of the automotive industry. However, electric vehicles require "constant performance over multiple cycles, large power, and fast charging", and their conditions are more stringent. Therefore, for electric vehicles, the high requirements for their lithium-ion batteries have made various manufacturers continue to try new materials or new formulas to meet market demand.

    At present, there are only two schemes that are used more frequently, NCA811 (nickel-cobalt-aluminum lithium battery, the number represents the ratio) and NCM811 (nickel-cobalt-manganese lithium battery). However, due to patent reasons and other factors, NCA is only adopted by Tesla, while NCM It is the scheme adopted by most manufacturers. Both have their pros and cons. NCA has higher energy density, but NCM is safer.


With the increasing popularity of electric vehicles in the future, lithium battery technology may become a key part of the "reshuffle" of major car companies. With the trend of global sustainable development, lithium batteries may be as important as petroleum.
