The growth of consumer electronic products in 2010 has accelerated the growth of batteries cells at the same time. According to EnergyTrend, prices of low capacity batteries will reach the bottom in 2011 and Japanese manufacturers are gradually inclined to downstream packaging business. As a result, battery cell price cut will slow down and in order to stimulate demand for end products, high capacity batteries will start to surge in commercialization.
From the viewpoint of battery cells, EnergyTrend believes that polymer cells will incur 5% overdemand; prismatic cells will show supply-demand balance or slight oversupply; and cylindrical cells will incur 15% oversupply in 2011. It is observed that big consumer electronics brands have adopted different sourcing practices that altered the industry shape. In addition, supply chain integration and market uncertainty all together make the outlook for lithium batteries in 2011 unclear.
