DUBLIN, February 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global and China Ternary Cathode Materials (NCA/NCM) and Battery Industry Report, 2016-2020" report to their offering.

The global shipment of cathode materials reached 223,400 tons in 2015, surging by 35.89% from the previous year. Thanks to brisk demand for electric vehicles, LFP and NCA show rapid growth among which NCA gets primarily used for Panasonic 18650 cylindrical batteries (to be supplied to Tesla EVs) and substantial growth of LFP benefits mainly from China's EV demand, particularly robust demand for electric buses as well as application in energy storage field. 

Currently, the world's ternary material manufacturers are principally from Japan, S.Korea and China, holding a combined market share of 50% worldwide. Japanese companies are expert at technologies and have rich experience; S.Korean peers have sprung up and tend to outpace Japanese ones in both technology and quality; while Chinese counterparts that accessed into the industry late are mainly involved in the medium and low-end markets with gross margin of less than 10% and serious homogeneity of products. 

At present, concentration of ternary material supply is improving in China, with four leaders including Hunan Shanshan Advanced Material, Xiamen Tungsten, Ningbo Jinhe New Materials, and Shenzhen Zhenhua New Materials together holding close to 50% market shares. In future, the market will be seized by the listed companies with strength in technology and capital. 

In 2015, the shipment of NCM ternary material was up to 30,500 tons with a year-on-year surge of 45.2% in China, and the output value reported RMB3.27 billion, up 35% from a year earlier and manly spurred by growth in electric vehicles' demand for power batteries and substitution for LCO. 

In addition to NCM, there is also little shipment of NCA ternary material in China, mainly contributed by Tianjin Lishen's 18650 NCA ternary lithium batteries for JAC's Iev5. Since NCA has strong chemical activity and poses exceedingly high requirements on battery thermal management system, electric vehicles in China have rare use of NCA. In 2015, the shipment of NCA ternary material approximated 2,000 tons in China. 

With improvements in compacted densification, energy density, voltage, etc., ternary materials' application in the digital domain (like tablet PC and notebook computer) sees a rising proportion. What's more, the demand for ternary materials from electric tool market also keeps growing.
