NCM 811 Commands an 18% Market Share in China in September 2019
Up from just 1% in January 2019
In September 2019, sales of new passenger EVs with NCM 811 battery cells were responsible for 18% of all passenger EV battery capacity (in MWh) deployed in China, and 7% of all capacity deployed globally, according to Adamas Intelligence’s latest ‘EV Battery Capacity Monthly’ report.
In China, for the second month in a row, NCM 811 was second-only to NCM 523 by capacity deployed, while the once-popular NCM 622 now finds itself in fifth spot with a mere 5% of the market.
In the pursuit of lower costs and higher energy density, a growing number of automakers in China have seemingly opted to bypass NCM 622, shifting instead straight from LFP or NCM 523 cathode chemistries into high-nickel NCM 811.
Since January 2019, the market share of NCM 811 in China’s passenger EV market has rapidly increased from less than 1% to 18% and shows little signs of slowing its ingress. Outside of China, however, automakers have been slow to adopt NCM 811 to-date but we expect to see the chemistry make inroads in Europe and North America by as early as next year.
