Such growth of the EV market in China is leading growth of the lithium ion secondary battery market in China. It is recorded that in 2015 the supply volume was approximately 19.8GWh, and more than 40GWh will be supplied as secondary batteries for EVs.
Among all the producers, BYD is number one in market share in terms of shipments. Total shipments in 2015 was approximately 3.6GWh and if ESS is included the number becomes over 4.2GWh.
