Navigant: automotive segment about 10.5% of global advanced battery shipments in 2013

17 June 2014

The automotive segment accounted for about 10.5% (4,972.2 MWh) of global advanced battery shipments of about 47,400 MWh, according to the most recent Advanced Battery Tracker from Navigant Research. The majority of advanced batteries (87%) went to the consumer electronics segment.

The chemistries included in the report are all lithium-ion (Li-ion) chemistries, flow battery chemistries, sodium metal halide, sodium sulfur (NaS), aqueous sodium-ion, and advanced lead-carbon.

When measured by cell shipments, more than 99% of advanced batteries were made with lithium ion (Li-ion) chemistries in 2013. Li-ion continues to be the primary chemistry utilized in consumer electronics, power tool, automotive, medical, and defense applications.

The only major application segment with significant penetration by other chemistries is stationary energy storage (0.3% share in 2013), where some systems utilize flow, sodium metal halide, sodium sulfur, and aqueous sodium ion batteries.

The global shipment volume of 47.4 GWh of advanced batteries represented more than 6 billion individual battery cells, 40.1 GW of power capacity, and more than $13.4 billion in sales. Navigant said that this represents a moderate growth rate over 2012 shipment numbers, which saw 44 GWh of batteries, worth nearly $12.8 billion, produced and sold. The majority of these batteries were manufactured in China and shipped around the world.

The automotive sector is progressively using more and more advanced batteries and could go from 12% to 25+% by 2020 or so.

Fixed installations for e-energy storage (wind and solar) will also use more batteries in the post 2020 era.

It's somewhat encouraging to see how small the automotive segment is, because that suggests that it could double or even quadruple in size without affecting the total too much.  Rapid growth is possible for at least a short time.

Future extended range BEVs, with 100+ kWh improved battery pack each, may become an important game changer.

More electric city buses, with 300+ kWh improved battery pack each, and city e-taxis with Model S style quick charge batteries will also contribute.

Many more PHEVs with 20 to 40 kWh battery pack will also become major users.

Used EV batteries may be used for domestic e-storage to extend the will or solar energy.

CORRECTION

last line should read ..... to extend the use of solar energy.
