2018 Top 100 China Battery Enterprises

    According to enterprise declaration data and annual report data of listed company, China Industrial Association of Power Sources(CIAPS) issued a list ‘2018 Top 100 Battery Enterprises in China’ on July29,2019. Tianneng Power International Limited again ranked 1st among the top 100 of battery enterprises in China with ¥34.552 billion, up 28.4% year-to-year. CATL ranked 2nd with ¥29.611 billion, up 48.1% year-to-year. Chaowei Power Holdings Limited(CHILWEE) ranked 3rd with ¥26.948 billion, up 9.3% year-to-year. ATL and BYD ranked 4th and 5th with ¥24.665 billion and ¥21.807 billion respectively, up 32.7% and 45.5% respectively. 

    In 2018,the top 100 battery enterprise in China achieve a total revenue of ¥449.9 billion, up 19.9% from ¥375.1 billion in 2017. There were 25 lead-acid battery enterprises among the top 100 in the new battery enterprises in China, operating revenue of lead-acid batteries was ¥118.746 billion, accounting for 26.4%; 39 lithium-ion battery enterprises had revenue of ¥156.427 billion, accounting for 34.8%; there were 7 lithium-ion battery module enterprises, and operating revenue of lithium-ion battery module was ¥53.93 billion, accounting for 12%; there were 9 zinc-manganese/alkali-manganese battery enterprises, and operating revenue of ZN-MnO2/alkali-manganese battery was ¥18.014 billion, accounting for 4%; there were 7 Ni-MH/Ni-Cd batteries enterprises, and operating revenue of Ni-MH/Ni-Cd batteries enterprises was¥3.044 billion, accounting for 0.7%; there were 26 materials enterprises, and operating revenue of various categories was ¥75.41 billion, accounting for 16.8%; there were 4 equipment enterprises with operating revenue ¥6.339 billion, accounting for 1.4%.

    Characteristics of TOP100 enterprises in 2018:

    (1) The scale of enterprises had further expanded and the concentration had increased again: for the first time, one of the top 100 enterprises had a operating income of more than ¥30 billion;there were 5 enterprises had a operating income of more than ¥20 billion, three more than in 2017; there were 8 enterprises had more than ¥10 billion in operating income, one more than in 2017; there were 23 enterprises had more than ¥5 billion in operating income, 8 more than in 2017. The lowest operatingincome of the listed enterprises was ¥771 million, compared with ¥679 million in 2017. 

    (2) Lead-acid batteries were still in great demand in automotive start, electric bicycles, electric tricycles, low-speed electric vehicles, electric forklifts, communications, new energy storage and other fields, but the total output growth rate was only 2% in 2018. The concentration of lead-acid battery industry had been further improved. There were more than 340 lead-acid battery enterprises in China. Because of the consumption tax levied, the profit of enterprises was compressed, and the survival of enterprises had more pressure. Some enterprises had increased their distribution in Vietnam, India and Central Asia, expandedtheir overseas production and intensified their efforts to develop international markets.

     (3) Lead- acid batteries faced competition from lithium-ion batteries in many fields. In the long term, lead-acid batteries had been replaced by lithium-ion batteries in communication backup power, electric bicycles, new energy storage, low-speed electric vehicles, etc. In consumer electronics products, lithium-ion batteries also replaced NI-MH batteries rapidly. The market of NI-MH batteries was gradually shrinking. Most of the NI-MH batteries enterprises had more income from lithium-ion batteries than NI-MH batteries.

     According to statistical analysis from CIAPS, the operating revenue of lithium-ion batteries in China reached ¥172.7 billion in 2018, up 8.7% from ¥158.9 billion in 2017. The output of lithium-ion batteries increased from 100.9 billion Wh to 124.2 billion Wh, and had 23.1% over the same period last year. This was mainly due to the rapid growth of EVs battery and energy storage battery market. Among them, the operating revenue of lithium-ion batter of consumer electric product increased from ¥75.7 billion to ¥77.2 billion, had increase of 2% over the same period of last year. And the output increased from 52.4 billion Wh to 54 billion Wh, had increase of 3% over the same period of last year. The main market of batteries for consumer electronics products was mobile phone, laptop, power bank, power tools and

wearable devices. The demand of them decreased, but demand for lithium-ion batteries for electric bicycles, power tools and wearable devices had increased. The operating revenue of lithium-ion battery for EVs was ¥78 billion, had increase of 14.3% over the same period of last year; the output increased from 44.6 billion Wh to 65 billion Wh, had increase of 45.7% over the same period of last year. The operating revenue of lithium-ion battery for energy storage increased from ¥5.2 billion to ¥6.5 billion, and had increase of 20% over the same period of last year. The output increased from 3.9 billion Wh to 5.2 billion Wh, had increase of 35% over the same time of last year.

     The market demand of lithium-ion battery was huge, but the competition of enterprises increased intensely, and the enterprise integration was in progress. With the deep adjustment of policies and rapid decline subsidies, the concentration of power battery enterprise continued to increase, and the market would further centralize to the head enterprises. In 2018, the Installed xEV Battery of top 20 enterprises accounted for 91.8%. The first five enterprises accounted for 73.6%, and the first two enterprises accounted for 61.3%. The Installed xEV Battery of top 20 enterprises accounted for 96.5% from January to May in 2019. The Installed xEV Battery of first five enterprises accounted for 80%, and the first two accounted for 70%. In 2019, enterprises were facing multiple pressures, such as a sharp decline in subsidies, an increase in energy density and lower limit of the endurance, and a tight enterprise capital chain. The second and third-tier echelon enterprises faced greater financial pressures. Many enterprises had abandoned EV battery business and turned to electric tools and electric bicycles. In the first half of 2019, the number of matching EVs battery enterprises dropped to less than 70, and the number of power battery enterprises will further decrease in the latter half of the year. 

    Power battery enterprises had a strong desire to reduce cost in short term. They would like to be compensated as much as possible by ‘cost reduction’ measured such as upstream separator, electrolyte, cathode, anode, as well as ‘efficiency enhancement’ measured such as increasing energy density, standardization. In the next 3 to 4 years, it will be the most difficult period for upstream and downstream enterprises of power battery industry chain. Especially in cost reduction, upstream and downstream enterprises will face unprecedented challenges. The whole industry chain need to cooperate together to overcome difficulties. Enterprises rapidly expand and occupy the market through comprehensive advantages of product cost performance ratio, but also to maintain a reasonable cash flow in order to ensure the normal

operation. The quality and safety should be the first for power battery enterprises, otherwise enterprises have to pay huge cost. Only with strong technology accumulation, sufficient financial support, cost-effective products, and faster response marketing, enterprises could lead in the fierce market competition in the future and win the market. Enterprises should catch the opportunity of ‘Belt and Road Initiative’, international capacity cooperation, establish an international R&D institution, carry out overseas layout, brand cultivation and other high-end links in the industrial chain should be transferred to accelerate integration into the globalmarket.
