Global Lithium Battery Anode Materials Market Sales Dominated by China and Japan

DALLAS, TX -- Global and China Lithium Battery Anode Materials Industry Report, 2014-2017, now available with RnRMarketResearch.com says rapid growth in global new energy vehicle market and accelerated application of lithium battery in communications and energy storage fields in the wake of the advent of 4G era will drive global demand for anode materials grow at a rate of more than 15% over the next three years.

In 2014, global lithium battery anode materials output totaled around 70,000 tons, concentrated in China and Japan, which together constituted over 95% of global anode materials sales volume. Global anode materials industry is highly concentrated, with major manufacturers including Hitachi Chemical, JFE Chemical, Mitsubishi Chemical, BTR, and Ningbo Shanshan, which held a combined market share of over 80% in 2014, with Hitachi Chemical and Ningbo Shanshan specializing in artificial graphite anode materials, BTR and Mitsubishi Chemical in natural graphite anode materials, and JFE Chemical and Ningbo Shanshan in MCMB anode materials.

China abounds in graphite mineral resources, endowing the country with significant advantage in production costs of anode materials, and occupied 70% or so of global anode materials output in 2014. As anode materials production technologies of the Chinese companies become increasingly mature, home-made anode materials will gain more market shares.

As of the end of 2014, there were more than 50 producers of lithium battery anode materials in China, and most of them entered the field after 2010. In 2014, the top five lithium battery anode materials producers (by capacity) were BTR, Ningbo Shanshan, Shenzhen Sinuo Industrial Development, Jiangxi Zichen Technology, and Jiangxi Zhengtuo New Energy Technology, with their capacities totaling 67,000 tons, and BTR and Ningbo Shanshan taking approximately 60% of the Chinese market.

Global and Chinese companies discussed in this research include Hitachi Chemical Co., Ltd., JFE Chemical, Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings, KUREHA, China Baoan Group Co., Ltd., Ningbo Shanshan Co., Ltd., Beijing Easpring Material Technology Co., Ltd., China-Kinwa High Technology Co., Ltd.. Jiangxi Zhengtuo New Energy Technology Co., Ltd., Jiangxi Zichen Technology Co., Ltd., Shenzhen Sinuo Industrial Development Co., Ltd., Morgan AM&T Hairong Co., Ltd., Chengdu Xingneng New Materials Co., Ltd., Tianjin Kimwan Carbon Technology and Development Co., Ltd. and Dalian Hongguang Lithium Industry Co., Ltd.

In recent years, due to falling cell price and fiercer competition in anode materials market in China, the prices and profits of anode materials in China continued to slide, and the trend is expected to last for the next three years. This will have small- and medium- sized enterprises lacking funds and technological innovation capabilities caught in deep waters, and even taken over or eliminated for some companies.

The Global and China Lithium Battery Anode Materials Industry Report, 2014-2017 focuses primarily on market size and competitive landscape of global lithium battery anode materials industry; market size, competitive landscape, price trend and development forecast of China lithium battery anode materials industry; supply & demand, competitive landscape, supporting relationship between upstream and downstream, development forecast of global and China lithium battery industry; operation, anode materials business, and development forecast of 15 global and Chinese anode materials producers.

The Global and China Lithium Battery Electrolyte Industry Report, 2014-2018 says with the growth of Chinese electrolyte manufacturers and domestic production of lithium hexafluorophosphate, the foreign capacity of lithium battery electrolyte has been gradually shifted to China, with the capacity in China for 2014 accounting for 53.3% of the global total. The global consumer electronics have the largest demand for lithium battery electrolyte, occupying 80.7% in 2013, followed by the demand from electric vehicles, sharing 13.5% in 2013. It is projected that amid the slowed growth in demand from consumer electronics and rapid expansion in EV demand, the EV's demand for lithium battery electrolyte will exceed consumer electronics' in 2018. World's influential lithium electrolyte producers consist of Ukseung, LG CHEM, Mitsubishi Chemical, UBE Industries, Guotai Huarong, and Capchem, etc. In 2013, the sales volume of lithium battery electrolyte globally amounted to 61,000 tons, 9.5% of which came from Ukseung, making it the world's No. 1. And Guotai Huarong, the largest lithium battery electrolyte manufacturer in China, represented 8.5% of the global total, ranking the third place worldwide.
