Due to the growth of EV, ESS and CE markets, the importance of batteries has become more important than ever. Of those, the importance has been revealed as a lot of increase has appeared in the demand markets for high-performance lithium-ion batteries. Currently, most of those high-performance lithium-ion batteries are mainly manufactured in 3 countries of Korea, China, and Japan; the rankings of CATL and BYD have jumped up from the 3rd and 4th places, respectively, in the first half of last year, to the 1st and 3rd ones, suggesting that the effect on the global market has gradually increased. Recently, however, as subsidy policies have changed and many small & mid-sized battery companies and several large-sized ones have gone bankrupt, it is becoming harder to predict how the situation will be changed in the Chinese battery industry. In this report, we are going to investigate how the Chinese battery market was in 2017 and how it will change in the future, while exploring in detail the overall trends and circumstances of the Chinese battery industry, in line with these changing market trends.


In order to investigate the Chinese battery market, this report will examine three major areas as follows: 

1. EV-related Regulations in China 

2. Supply Status of Secondary Battery Company by Type 

3. Current Status and Outlook in China on EV, ESS, and CE Markets of 3 Major Demanding Places for Battery 


In the China's legislations, we would like to examine what EV-related government agencies exist in China and what kind of works they are usually engaged in and then, investigate closely the NEV license plate policy and the subsidy policies recently revised. When it comes to the current status of the secondary battery industry, we are going to look into how the shipments and sales were in 2017, and much more closely investigate the manufacturers of Li-ion batteries and power cells. Finally, in the current status and outlook of EV, ESS, and CE markets, we will examine why the Chinese market is proceeding toward such a direction and how the current market is growing, as well. 


The Strong Points in this report are as follows: 

1. Grasping the current status of EV-related agencies and policies in China 

2. Understanding the status of Chinese secondary battery market 

3. Apprehending sales by each battery maker 

4. Grasping sales by battery types 

5. Understanding the trends of battery material companies
