The 10 Best Lithium Battery Manufacturers in China


Follow me on:

China dominates the global renewable energy industry, accounting for more than 80% of solar cell exports, over 50% of lithium-ion battery exports, and more than 20% of electric vehicle exports. This has given China a significant advantage in the global new energy field. The new energy vehicle industry is expected to grow at a compound rate exceeding 20% in the next decade, driving sustained high growth in the power lithium battery industry. It is projected that global demand for lithium batteries will be around 1120 GWh by 2025 and approximately 3000 GWh by 2030. The rapid growth of the new energy vehicle industry has also led to an explosion in demand for lithium salt products. It is anticipated that annual demand will reach 1.6 million tons in 2025 and 4 million tons in 2030, driven mainly by the demand for power batteries.
