Batteries in China

Demand for batteries in China will grow 13.2 percent annually through 2010. Gains will be driven by the emergence of electric bicycles and strong domestic consumer demand for battery-powered products. Alkaline and lithium batteries will be the fastest growing primary type while rechargeable lithium batteries will pace the secondary battery segment.

This study analyzes the 59 billion Chinese battery industry. It presents historical demand data for 1995, 2000 and 2005 and forecasts to 2010 and 2015 by battery type (e.g., zinc-carbon/zinc-chloride, alkaline, primary lithium, lead-acid, rechargeable lithium, nickel-cadmium, nickel-metal hydride); and market (e.g., consumer, industrial, government, electric bicycles and motor vehicles, portable devices, motive power, backup power).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 39 leading competitors including BYD, Baoding Jin Fengfan, SCUD Fujian Electronic, Johnson Controls, Huanyu Power Source, Tianneng Power, Coslight Technology International, GS Yuasa, Matsushita, and China BAK.
