Lithium batteries used mainly in digital cameras, mobile phones, laptops and other portable electronic products in the global attention to energy saving and environmental protection, coupled with the progress of lithium battery technology, its application even further spread to electric vehicles, electric bicycles, Energy storage and other fields, lithium battery industry is in rapid development. In recent years, the domestic lithium battery industry through continuous development and accumulation has formed a relatively complete industrial chain, including the upper reaches of the lithium ore resources, the middle reaches of the lithium battery materials and downstream battery production.
Shang Pu consulting industry analysts pointed out that in recent years, China's lithium battery production increased rapidly. In 2011, China's lithium battery production reached 2.966 billion natural only, an increase of 10.4%. In 2012, China's lithium battery production reached 4.178 billion natural only, an increase of 40.86%. In 2013, China's lithium-ion battery industry (including lithium-ion batteries, equipment, materials) continued to expand, the global market share steadily. Data show that from January to December 2013, China's battery manufacturing industry, the main products, the cumulative production of lithium-ion battery 4.768 billion natural output, the cumulative increase of 16.9%. According to the analysis, in January-December 2013, China's battery manufacturing industry cumulative export delivery value fell 4%, total sales rate of 97.7%; which in December export delivery value fell 2%, month sales rate of 97.2% . In terms of efficiency, from January to December, the national above-scale battery manufacturing enterprises accumulated main business income grew 11.4%, total profit fell 0.5%, the total tax revenue increased 24.8%. Li-ion products which main business revenue grew 17.8%, total profit increased 28.9%, the total tax revenue increased 19.6%.
