Lithium Deployment in EV Batteries Up 89% Year-over-Year in 2019 H1

Sep. 24, 2019

Asia-Pacific responsible for 60% of deployment in 2019 H1, up from 55% in 2018 H1

In 2019 H1, 27,550 tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent (“LCE”) were deployed globally in batteries of all newly-sold passenger EVs combined, an increase of 89% over the same period the year prior, according to a new (free) report from Adamas Intelligence, titled ‘State of Charge: EVs, Batteries and Battery Materials‘.

This increase was driven by strong EV sales growth overall (25% over the same period the year prior) coupled with a boost in BEV sales relative to HEV sales, resulting in accelerated deployment of EV battery capacity over the same period, and consequently, accelerated deployment of LCE.

As the largest and fastest-growing EV market globally, Asia-Pacific was responsible for deployment of 60% of all LCE used globally in EV batteries in 2019 H1, up from 55% in 2018 H1.
