CATL stays world’s largest EV battery maker in Q1 2022


Within the first quarter of 2022, the worldwide cargo of batteries reached 95,1 GWh, which corresponds to a 93,3 p.c improve year-on-year, in response to a report launched by Seoul-based SNE Analysis.


Let’s see who’re the highest EV battery makers.


  1. CATL: 33,3 GWh (35 %)
  2. LG Power Answer: 15,1 GWh (15,9 %)
  3. BYD: 10,5 GWh (11,9 %)
  4. Panasonic: 9,4 GWh (9,9 %)
  5. SK On: 6,3 GWh (6,6 %)
  6. CALB: 4,2 GWh (4,4 %)
  7. Samsung SDI: 3,8 %
  8. Gotion Excessive-Tech: 2,7 %
  9. Svolt Power: 1,3 %
  10. Eve Power: 1,2 %
  11. Others: 8,2 %


Chinese language battery makers have been driving the LFP (LiFePO4) wave to achieve market share, whereas Japanese and Korean makers nonetheless don’t mass produce cobalt-free EV batteries. Nevertheless, the Korean firms – LG and SK – are already creating LFP battery cells and will quickly announce their mass manufacturing…

Panasonic remains to be struggling for counting on producing nearly completely cylindrical cells for a sole buyer (Tesla) for such very long time. Furthermore, Toyota that’s now utilizing its new prismatic cells solely produces as few electrical vehicles because it cans…

As for CATL, the corporate is certainly decided to remain on the highest and can begin mass producing sodium-ion batteries in 2023. Combining cobalt-free cells and module-less battery packs now appears to be the recipe for achievement that some makers are nonetheless ignoring.


Anyway, one factor is obvious, solely Asian firms are mass producing EV battery cells. I’m starting to suppose that the European Battery Alliance is a joke to make us consider that the European Union is doing one thing to maneuver away from fossil fuels. Much like Volkswagen that was for a few years the champion of EV press releases, whereas producing near nothing.
