The Manufacture and Supply of Batteries and EMD:

The strength of the automotive and independent power producer industries and strong energy security research and development activity continue to support growth in the battery manufacturing industry. There is a significant opportunity for continued development on the back of increasing renewable generation and energy storage investment, partly to counter the increased risk of an Eskom failure. In the past decade, the rechargeable lithium-ion battery market doubled on average every three years due to the increased usage of mobile phones, computer tablets, and laptops.

New Growth Opportunities:

Batteries powering electric vehicles are forecast to make up 90% of the lithium-ion battery market by 2025, and the energy storage demand side management and back-up power market is expected to increase significantly. The industry is in transition as new entrants, including traditional energy players, enter the battery industry, by providing charging services at forecourts and by investing in battery manufacture themselves. Technology advancements, fuel economy standards and incentives for zero- and low-emissions vehicles and tax incentives on energy storage are all driving industry growth.
