Lithium-Ion Batteries: Powering Electric Vehicles

Increased awareness of the detrimental impact traditional fuel-powered cars have on the environment has spurred automotive manufacturers to explore sustainable sources of power for vehicles. In fact, many cars today are hybrids: they are run by combustion engines that require gasoline or diesel and battery-powered electric motors. The trend in auto manufacturing, however, is leaning towards a fully electric future. As the market for electric vehicles (EVs) grows, so does the demand for raw materials in electric car lithium battery production. Industry players need to have data from market drivers on all levels of the electric car supply chain to stay afloat. Benchmark Minerals provides you with this data.

The EV Supply Chain: Finding Its Bearings in a Volatile Environment

The falling prices of lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles, the uncertainty of what the best proportion of raw materials is, the increasing competition from China, and the race among battery pack manufacturers and automakers to secure minerals necessary for manufacturing lithium-ion batteries—these are just a few of the factors that shaped the EV industry over the past decade. Players in this industry —the automakers, battery manufacturers, lenders, and investors—have their eye on the supply chain for electric vehicle manufacturing. Changes or lack of certainty in the downstream market (ex: automakers and consumer demand for electric cars), however, can cause a disruption in the upstream segments (ex: mining companies, lenders). To weather this volatile industry, you need accurate and up-to-date information from the largest market drivers.
