The Crisis and Opportunity of Lithium Battery Development from the Results of China-U.S.

The incidents such as the ban on ZTE revealed the shortcomings of the lack of core technology in China's manufacturing industry and touched the sensitive nerves of the Chinese people. From these incidents, as a key energy-producing vehicle for China's manufacturing of 2025, new energy vehicles, in order to avoid "sweeping", power lithium batteries must also take precautions against the occurrence of crises and actively look for ways out.

 

Recently, a negotiating team composed of senior U.S. officials visited China and started negotiations with China on the recent trade war. The result of the Sino-U.S. economic and trade consultations is that the two sides have reached some consensus in some areas, but there are still big differences on some issues. Obviously, a trade war initiated by the United States against "Made in China 2025" will not stop there. However, in this trade war, the “ZTE Incident” triggered an earthquake in the industry, and then the United States once again pointed to Huawei’s ban on ZTE and ZTE, revealing the shortcomings of the lack of core technology in China’s manufacturing industry and spurring the nerves of the Chinese people. From these incidents, as a key energy-producing vehicle for China's manufacturing of 2025, new energy vehicles, in order to avoid "sweeping", power lithium batteries must also take precautions against the occurrence of crises and actively look for ways out.

 

Since the outbreak of the development of China's new energy vehicles, power lithium batteries as a core component have also ushered in a "high light moment."

 

At one time, Chinese companies accounted for 7 seats in the world's top 10 power battery sales. Today, China has the most power battery companies in the world. Statistics show that at present, there are more than 200 power battery companies in China. According to Forbes News Network, China is expected to account for over 70% of the global battery market by 2020.

 

In addition, the development of the power lithium battery industry has led to the rise of upstream and downstream companies in the industry chain. This prompted China to form a large-scale and more complete power battery industry chain. However, it is still not strong enough. Some key core equipment and technologies are still abroad, and there is a risk that core equipment and technologies will be cut off.
