How about the price of lithium batteries in 2021?

The pricing of lithium batteries is based on capacity, which is calculated per 1000mAh (1Ah).

The pricing of lithium batteries is based on capacity, which is calculated per 1000mAh (1Ah). According to current standards, the average price of lithium batteries on the market ranges from 3.6 to 9.5 yuan per 1000 mAh when they leave the factory, and the average price is about 8 yuan. Moreover, the production difficulty and price of different materials of lithium batteries are different. Including lithium cobalt oxide, lithium manganate, lithium nickel oxide, lithium iron phosphate, ternary and other materials. For example: Lithium cobalt oxide is generally 7.5 yuan per Ah, lithium iron phosphate is 9 yuan per Ah, three yuan is 6.51 Ah, lithium manganese oxide is 6 yuan per Ah, the price is just for reference.

If it is a simple battery, there are currently a certain number of quotations:

1. The mass customized production price of brand new lithium iron phosphate batteries is about 7 yuan and 1Ah. This price is for better quality;

2. The price for mass customization of new lithium iron phosphate batteries is about 6 yuan, which is a relatively low quality of the batteries;

3. The batch price of cascade lithium iron phosphate batteries is 3~4 yuan. This battery is a secondary use, and the price is naturally the lowest;

4. Brand-new special batteries, such as low-temperature, high-rate batteries, etc., are generally quoted at around 8 yuan;

If it is the quotation of the battery cell plus the protection board and the shell, the price will be higher, which is for the quotation of bulk products.

Lithium batteries on the market are also divided into standard products and customized products. Generally, the price of standard products is relatively transparent. As long as the product is qualified, the price is within the average market price range. Some special-purpose lithium batteries, such as low-temperature lithium batteries, lithium batteries for special medical devices, and robot smart batteries, are more expensive for special customization. Different manufacturers have different quality and different prices.

In terms of market conditions in 2020, the price of lithium batteries is gradually falling, and the rate of decline is faster than predicted. As the subsidy policy changes year by year, the subsidy is getting smaller and smaller, and the prices of upstream raw materials and cathode materials continue to fall, leading to a decline in the cost of lithium batteries. The supply of lithium batteries on the market exceeds demand and overcapacity, which causes the prices of lithium batteries to continue to fall. It is expected that by the end of 2020, the price of lithium batteries will drop by about 10%. By 2021, the price forecast of lithium batteries will stabilize. It depends on the policy next year and whether the upstream raw material market will usher in a new turn. Coupled with the rapid development of new energy sources, the demand for power lithium batteries continues to increase, and price rebounds are not impossible.

According to the above data reference, the price of lithium iron phosphate battery can be roughly calculated. For example, the price of a 12Ah lithium iron phosphate battery, according to the two most expensive and cheapest algorithms above, the result of the simple battery price is 96 yuan and 36 yuan respectively. As for the addition of BMS and battery casing, the price will become very expensive, some can reach about 120 1Ah, which mainly depends on the raw materials used. For example, the product information seen on the Internet is as follows:

Lithium iron phosphate battery price: 10050 yuan

Nominal voltage: 46.8V

Nominal capacity: 80,000mAh

Nominal capacity: 80Ah

BMS: short circuit protection, overcharge protection, over discharge protection, over current protection, temperature protection.

Anti-vibration: through the cold-rolled sheet metal shell filled with anti-vibration structure design, to meet the requirements of high safety and high reliability;

Large current: Copper-nickel composite nickel tape is used to connect the battery core, which is safe and reliable.

Communication interface: RS485 communication protocol can be used to read battery voltage, current, temperature, capacity and other information;

Data communication management: Using BMS software to manage the chip, precise data transmission, precise temperature control, to minimize safety hazards.

The battery pack is safe, with a temperature probe, and the temperature exceeds the automatic start protection;

The battery pack has a high cycle life and conforms to the value concept of low carbon, energy saving and environmental protection;

The price of the battery has reached 125 yuan 1Ah. In fact, this price is unrealistically high. If you want to customize it, the price will generally be lower than the current price.

The above is the entire content of the lithium battery price trend compiled for everyone. The above quotations are all speculations and do not represent the company's standards. You are still based on the actual purchase and customization, and the corresponding price insured by the manufacturer. Because the lithium battery market is very chaotic, many lithium battery manufacturers insure the price at will, and the quality is not necessarily guaranteed, so everyone must look for quality and pay attention to quality when purchasing.
