LiFePO4 battery has been the most-discussed subject in Li-ion battery field since 2007, because of the many accidents related to safety of Li-ion batteries, many times of recall of Li-ion batteries, global climate change and the soaring prices of oil have had greatly promoted electric-powered vehicles, and the highly safe LiFePO4 batteries naturally became the focus of attention.

LiFePO4 is sold at US$30-60 per kg according to its quality. In China it is sold at RMB140,000 - 180,000 a ton, with the gross profit margin of 60-70%. The market value of LiFePO4 was US$70m in China in 2008, and is expected to be USD140m in 2010, with the CAGR of 44% during 2008 and 2010.

There is in China's LiFePO4 industry an investment boom that surpassed it in any other country. The boom can be indicated with the number of companies in the field - the US only has two of them, i.e. A123 and Valence; Canada only one, i.e. Phostech; Taiwan four, i.e. Changs Ascending, Potrans Electrical Corp., Advanced Lithium Electrochemistry and Tatung System Technologies Inc., while there are many more in China – data showed there were more than 40 LiFePO4 producers in China by Oct. 2008, and some of then had already put LiFePO4 into mass production, including Huaxin Energy Materials (Xinxiang), BYD (Shenzhen), BTR (Shenzhen), STL Energy Technology (Tianjin) and Pulead, Nanochem Systems (Suzhou), Xinxiang City Huaxin Energy Materials. Another eight companies also produce LiFePO4 in massive quality and are doing pilot selling. More others intend to get into the field.
