lithium battery manufacturer ranking in the word 2022
The world's top three corporate giants are: China's CATL, Japan's Panasonic, and South Korea's LG chem.
The ranking is mainly based on market share. Due to the large amount of automotive power batteries, almost all the top lithium battery manufacturers are power lithium battery manufacturers.
According to the latest data from market research institutions, the global installed capacity of power batteries in electric vehicles in 2020 will reach 137GWh. Among them, CATL has become the world's largest power battery supplier with an installed capacity of 34GWh, with a market share of 24.82%. It is worth mentioning that this is also the fourth consecutive time since 2017 that CATL has defended the global championship.
This article explains in detail the establishment time and scale of each lithium-ion battery manufacturer, market share, and featured products.
Reference value of occupancy rate: 27.87%; installed capacity: 34GWH

Global position: one of the three giants of lithium batteries in the world, leading the world in many fields and enjoying a global reputation. Panasonic is the US auto giant tesla battery supplier.
Panasonic is a world-renowned Japanese multinational company with more than 230 companies around the world. As early as 2001, the total sales volume for the whole year was more than 61 billion US dollars, ranking 26th among the world's top 500 manufacturing companies. Panasonic's brand products involve home appliances, digital audio-visual electronics, office products, aviation, etc. Panasonic is world-leading in many fields and has a global reputation.
Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd. was founded in 1918 by Mr. Konosuke Matsushita, who is known as the "God of Management". At the beginning of its establishment, it was a small workshop composed of three people, one of which was Mr. Toshio Iue, the founder of Sanyo. After several generations of efforts, it has now become a world-renowned international comprehensive electronic technology enterprise group.
Japan's Panasonic has signed an agreement with the American electric car giant Tesla Motors. According to the agreement, Panasonic will supply battery packs for Tesla's Model S models in the next four years, and Panasonic must ensure sufficient battery supply. The partnership will help Tesla achieve increased profit on Model S sales.
Tesla 4680 battery
It is reported that after long-term efforts, Panasonic and Tesla have jointly developed a nickel-based lithium battery pack, which will be used in Tesla's Model S models. According to foreign media reports, on October 25, 2021, at a media roundtable, Panasonic first released the company's new battery, the 4680 prototype battery. This advanced battery has five times the storage capacity of existing batteries. Kazuo Tadanobu, head of Panasonic's battery division, said the release of this battery will help deepen Panasonic's business cooperation with Tesla. Panasonic has established a test line for 4680 batteries in Japan. Tesla says the 4680 battery, which is 46mm in diameter and 80mm in height, can not only store more power, but also halve the cost of battery production. Tesla wants to increase production of 4680 cells by a factor of 100 by 2030.
The tesla 4680 battery was first released in September 2020. The single cell of this product has a diameter of 46mm and a height of 80mm, and the energy density has also been increased to 300kWh/kg. The battery adopts laser-processed electrodeless ear technology, which can reduce weight and increase production speed in general. On the whole, it can increase the cruising range of electric vehicles by 16%, increase the output power by 6 times, and reduce the cost by 14%.
The panasonic 18650 battery is the first in the world, and the panasonic solar battery also occupies a larger market.
Japan has a world-renowned craftsmanship, but Panasonic is definitely an "outlier". In 1992, Sony pioneered the invention of the lithium-ion battery. In 1998, the 18650 cylindrical battery produced by Panasonic has been mass-assembled on the world's major notebook computers. Unlike Sony's stagnation in the field of home appliances, Panasonic chose to carry forward this battery through cross-border. And that field is the automotive field. In the same year that Sony invented the lithium battery, Panasonic had already created the first generation of nickel-metal hydride batteries for electric vehicles. In 1993, Panasonic Electric Vehicle Energy Co., Ltd. was established in which Toyota invested 80.5% and Panasonic invested 19.5%. In 1997, the world's first hybrid car, the Toyota Prius, came out, equipped with square nickel-metal hydride batteries made by Panasonic. In 2013, the "Japan Revitalization Strategy" brought hydrogen energy to the national policy level. Toyota gave up the pure electric direction, and began to develop hydrogen energy vehicles with full force while returning to the hybrid route.
Panasonic’s main force has turned to tailor-made pure electric solutions for Tesla, and amateurs continue to provide hybrid solutions for Toyota. As a result, Panasonic's cylindrical lithium battery technology and Tesla's BMS electronic control technology began to cooperate to jointly open the pure electric era of new energy vehicles.
It is worth mentioning that, after jointly creating the stunning Model S and Model X series, Panasonic's power battery technology has reached its peak on the Model 3. For example, Panasonic battery + Tesla electronic control + Model 3.
Compared with the Ningde era, Panasonic's technology is more advanced and mature, and the market share of the Ningde era is undoubtedly far ahead. For example, one of the reasons why Tesla chose the Panasonic 18650 ternary lithium battery is that it uses NCA as the positive electrode and has designed a complex battery management system to ensure and improve the efficiency and safety of battery work as much as possible.
Market share reference value: 10.55%; installed capacity: 31GWH.
Global position: The only one of the four major battery companies in the world with a business background in chemical materials. LG Chem is the only lithium-ion battery supplier for Model Y models made in China, a major lithium-ion battery supplier for the European market, and a major battery supplier for electric vehicles in the United States.
LG Group was established in Seoul, South Korea in 1947, located at No. 20, Yeouido-dong, Yeongdeungpo District, Seoul. LG Group currently has more than 300 overseas offices in 171 countries and regions. Business areas cover chemical energy, electronic appliances, communications and services.
LG Chem used to be the only one of the four major lithium ion battery companies in the world with a background in the chemical materials business, so it has a deep and broad layout in the field of electrochemistry. LG is a top 3 battery company in the word, one of the first companies to enter the lithium battery industry, and has a deep understanding of soft pack and cylindrical technology. In terms of power batteries, LG's R&D investment is very decisive, and it has learned from the industrialization experience of consumer lithium batteries, followed the route of soft-pack ternary lithium batteries, and quickly bound first-tier OEMs. It is generally considered to be the most potential power battery leader. LG's customers include overseas first-tier car giants, such as Volkswagen, Daimler, GM, Hyundai Kia, etc. In the long run, LG's overseas share is expected to reach 30%. Technically, LG was the first to deploy dynamic soft packs, covering most of the core patents and compressing the space for other soft pack rivals. The global market share of soft pack batteries is about 16%, but LG has obvious advantages such as safety, high energy density, and flexible shape, and its share is expected to continue to increase in the future. In terms of supply chain, most of LG's ternary cathodes are self-produced, and separators and electrolytes have been self-supplied.
LG Chem used to rely on the strong sales of Renault Zoe, Audi e-tron, Porsche Taycan, Mercedes-Benz EQC, Jaguar I-PACE and other models in the European market, and these models are all provided by LG Chem with automotive power lithium-ion batteries. More importantly, with the strong sales of Tesla Model 3 in China, LG's installed capacity has increased significantly, especially in the second quarter of this year, which achieved the best single-quarter performance in the history of its power battery business, with sales reaching approximately 16.5 billion yuan, operating profit of 155.5 billion won, or about 900 million yuan.
