Global Supply Strategies: Will the Battery Industry Meet Western Demand?
Tuesday, September 10 • 4:15 PM - 4:30 PM
Location: Onyx Ballroom
Badge Type: Paid
While the Chinese battery industry is the world leader in the supply of lithium-ion batteries, its focus on the local market has opened opportunities for other global battery makers to tap into the growth of western markets.
This session will explore the historic growth of global battery makers and how they are geographically diversifying to supply western automakers. In doing so, we will review where new battery factories should be located globally and the required investment and materials that those factories would need.
We will also review how these battery companies will expand based on the expected demand from each market. To that end, Roskill will apply the findings of its in-house automotive model to show how different factors such as energy prices, subsides, GDP per capita or autonomous vehicles will impact the preferences of consumers worldwide.
