China Continues to Add New Power Battery Capacity Despite Subsidies Revised

China Continues to Add New Power Battery Capacity Despite Subsidies Revised
By GBF ASIA Committee

In 2018, China’s power battery policy took a sharp turn: within the next 2 years, China would first reduce and eventually cancel subsidies entirely for power battery makers.
Many predict a brutal reshuffle in the industry while others see business opportunities. Industry leaders like BYD, CATL, SK Innovation, LG Chem, Panasonic, and etc are vying to build additional capacity in China as they realize the new policy is going to open up more market share for them to grab by pushing weaker businesses out of the market.  
Here are partial influential power battery makers which have announced or added new plants/capacity in China in 2018:
