Li-ion Battery for Electric Vehicles:

Li-ion batteries are used as an alternative source of power for Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs), and as a primary source for Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs).

BEVs use electric motors that are powered by the Li-ion battery for propulsion, whereas PHEVs have IC engines as well as electric motors. A key feature of the Li-ion battery is the capacity to charge the EVs while they are in use. The market is witnessing rising popularity of two fuel systems, thus, making PHEVs a preferred choice for customers interested in EVs. The government in China is making concerted efforts in improving charging facilities for EV owners who are currently dependent on residential power supplies or commercial charging sockets.

As per this latest report, the demand for Li-ion Battery Market for EVs in China is expected to grow five-fold, posting a CAGR of close to 40 percent during the forecast period.

Market Outlook of Electric Vehicles in China:

Over the past few years, many local and international manufacturers have introduced high-end EV models, and it is expected that the total number of EVs in the country will cross 450,000 units by 2020.

With financial incentives from the government and increased R&D activities, China is taking efforts to lower its dependence on petroleum products for transportation; therefore the future for EVs in China looks promising. As of 2014, China was the second largest market for EVs in the world. It witnessed a 300 percent increase in sales over the previous year. In addition, Li-ion battery operated vehicles are helping reduce carbon emissions and dependence on other fossil fuels.

Continuous government support and favorable policies are boosting the manufacturing of EVs in the country and the increasing sales of EVs are expected to increase the demand for Li-ion batteries for EVs in China.
