Interact Analysis predicts that the global LIB production capacity will reach 910.4GWh in 2023, with a 5-year CAGR of 22.7%.
If all the production and expansion plans released so far remain on schedule, EMEA’s production capacity will reach 118.7GWh in 2023 with a CAGR of an astonishing 56.0%.
Interact Analysis predicts that the total demand for Li-ion battery will reach 329.2GWh in 2023, growing with a 5-year CAGR of 13.5%.
The demand from energy storage market was only 6.0GWh in 2018, which translates to 3.4%.It is however expected to grow with a CAGR of 40.4% over the next 5 years – the fastest of any application analyzed here.
In 2018, global sales of Li-ion battery used in passenger electric vehicles reached 65.1GWh with a year-on-year increase of 81.0%, China contributed 51.3% to the total market. The North American and European markets also grew rapidly, with year-on-year growth of 82.0% and 40.6%, respectively.
The transportation market (53.7%) surpassed the consumer market (43.3%) for the first time in 2017. It’s expected that the market share for transportation will reach 68.4% in 2023, becoming the market’s main driver of demand.
The average battery price will drop another 30% by 2023, so the penetration rate in price-sensitive applications like electric trucks and off-highway vehicles may soar.
