the lithium industry in the next few years growth is still high
starting point research ceo, li zhenqiang said at the meeting, from the chinese lithium battery competition pattern, the industry concentration is far lower than abroad. in 2015, the market concentration of china's top 10 lithium batteries was 44.4%, and only one of the top 10 did not involve power batteries. li zhenqiang predicts that by 2018, china's lithium-ion battery market will reach 96.11gwh, the composite growth of 25% over the next 3 years, ev maintained more than 40% compound growth, while the ess market outbreak is expected in 2018.
from the view of the field of lithium battery materials, production in domestic enterprises outstanding performance. li zhenqiang pointed out that the cathode material market, the first half of 2016 the global output of 102 thousand and 500 tons, 51 thousand tons of china; anode material market, the first half of 2016 the global anode production was 66 thousand and 800 tons, 39 thousand and 600 tons of chinese; divide the market, the first half of 2016 the global diaphragm production of 790 million square meters, an increase of 20.8%, chinese diaphragm production of 400 million square meters, an increase of 31.6%.
it is worth mentioning that the lithium industry mergers and acquisitions, expansion of the heat is not reduced. according to li zhenqiang, the first half of 2016, there were 30 cases of lithium industry merger cases, in addition, lithium upstream material enterprises are also have expansion.
