Driven by the support of government policies and the demand of downstream markets, the production and sales volume of new energy vehicles (all electric vehicles) are growing rapidly in China in recent years. In 2017, the sales volume of new energy vehicles totaled 777,000, increasing by 53.3% YOY and accounting for 2.7% of the total vehicle sales in China. In 2017, the sales volume of battery electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid vehicles reached 652,000 and 125,000 respectively.
The boom in the electric vehicle industry will lead to the substantial growth of lithium batteries and relevant industries. In 2017, China, Japan and South Korea became the power battery production centers in the world. Chinese enterprises took six places of the top 10 power battery manufacturers and three places of the top 5. China has grown into a significant li-ion power battery manufacturer. From the perspective of li-ion power battery shipments, the industry is highly concentrated with the CR10 reaching approximately 80% in 2017. The top li-ion power battery enterprises include Contemporary Amperex Technology Co., Ltd., BYD Company Limited, OptimumNano Energy Co., Ltd., Hefei Guoxuan High-Tech Power Energy Co., Ltd., Shenzhen BAK Battery Co., Ltd. and Farasis Energy (Ganzhou) Co., Ltd. It is noteworthy that the CR5 of the Li-ion power battery industry was up to 67.86% in 2016. In recent years, top li-ion power battery manufacturers expanded production capacity one after another, and formed alliances with downstream automakers (for example, CATL + SAIC and Guoxuan + BAIC) to gain scale advantage when seizing customers.
There are clear expectations for new energy vehicles with the government's great policy support and the upcoming "Measures on Parallel Administration of Passenger Car Enterprise Average Fuel Consumption and New-Energy Vehicle Credits". Moreover, no disruptive technology will appear in the power battery industry for the time being. Over the coming 3-5 years, it will be difficult to change the industry structure dominated by ternary batteries and supplemented by lithium iron phosphate batteries. At present, the industry focuses are placed on expanding production capacity for scale advantage and cooperating with automakers for market advantage. The development of new energy vehicles is an important driving force for the development of China's li-ion power battery industry in which the policy environment and economic environment also play an important role. It is expected that li-ion power battery production in China will exceed 150GWh in 2022. There is still a large growth potential for China's li-ion power battery market.

Background research defines the range of products and industries, which proposes the key points of the research. Proper classification will help clients understand the industry and products in the report.
Secondhand material research is a necessary way to push the project into fast progress. The analyst always chooses the data source carefully. Most secondhand data they quote is sourced from an authority in a specific industry or public data source from governments, industrial associations, etc. For some new or niche fields, they also "double-check" data sources and logics before they show them to clients.
Primary research is the key to solve questions, which largely influence the research outputs. The analyst may use methods like mathematics, logical reasoning, scenario thinking, to confirm key data and make the data credible.
The data model is an important analysis method. Calculating through data models with different factors weights can guarantee the outputs objective.
The analyst optimizes the following methods and steps in executing research projects and also forms many special information gathering and processing methods.
1. Analyze the life cycle of the industry to understand the development phase and space.
2. Grasp the key indexes evaluating the market to position clients in the market and formulate development plans
3. Economic, political, social and cultural factors
4. Competitors like a mirror that reflects the overall market and also market differences.
5. Inside and outside the industry, upstream and downstream of the industry chain, show inner competitions
6. Proper estimation of the future is good guidance for strategic planning.
