Power Li ion Battery Price Trend

- Nov 25, 2018 -

"Power li ion batteries account for nearly half of the cost of the whole vehicle, state subsidies are retreating and withdrawing rapidly, and raw materials in the upstream are also declining, so the price of power li ion batteries must be further reduced next year. "A mainstream automobile manufacturer said that next year's battery purchase price, the logistics vehicle company's expected price reduction target is 20%, up to 40%.


In fact, the price of power li ion batteries has been declining in recent years. At present, the market price of lithium iron phosphate batteries is 1.1-1.2 yuan/Wh, and the market price of ternary batteries is about 1.3-1.4 yuan/Wh.


According to the 20% reduction requirement, the price of lithium iron phosphate batteries is estimated to be 0.85-0.96 yuan/Wh, and the price of ternary batteries is 1.05-1.15 yuan/Wh, which will become the price generally expected by the host factories next year.


It is worth noting that although some main engine factories are unreasonable about the 40% reduction in battery price next year, most of them think that the 10% - 15% reduction in battery price is more reasonable and feasible.


Objectively speaking, the general demand of main engine factories is to reduce the purchase price of ternary power li ion batteries to about 1.1 yuan/Wh or even lower in 2019, and the purchase price of lithium iron phosphate batteries to below 1 yuan/Wh.


For the demand of reducing the price of the main engine factory, the power li ion battery enterprises believe that under the double pressure of increasing the price of raw materials and the price of the main engine factory, the profit margin of the power li ion battery enterprises has been further compressed, and the reduction of the battery price is limited.
