Nickel Use in EV Batteries Up 78% Year-over-Year in 2019 H1

Sep. 26, 2019

Asia-Pacific responsible for 52% of deployment in 2019 H1, up from 49% in 2018 H1

In 2019 H1, 27,350 tonnes of nickel were deployed globally in batteries of all newly-sold passenger EVs combined, an increase of 78% over the amount deployed in 2018 H1 according to a new (free) report by Adamas Intelligence, titled ‘State of Charge: EVs, Batteries and Battery Materials‘.

Over the same period, nickel deployment in BEVs increased 119% year-over-year to 20,600 tonnes in 2019 H1 on the back of the industry’s ongoing shift to ‘higher-nickel’ cathode chemistries, such as NCM 523, 622 and 811, while nickel deployment in PHEV and HEV batteries increased a mere 8% and 13%, respectively, versus 2018 H1.

Asia-Pacific was responsible for deployment of 52% of all nickel used globally in passenger EV batteries in 2019 H1, up from 49% in 2018 H1, following a year-over-year increase in nickel deployment of 89% in the region.
