According to statistics from the national bureau of statistics, the accumulative total industrial output value of China's battery industry reached 136.34 billion yuan from January to June 2009, up 7.9% year-on-year. The industrial sales value reached 130.45 billion yuan, up 0.9% year-on-year; The export delivery value reached 43.41 billion yuan, down 11.3 percent, with lead acid battery output up 16.7 percent. Alkaline battery production decreased by 32.0% year on year; Galvanic battery production fell 13.2 per cent year on year.In addition, from January to may, the cumulative export volume of solar cells reached 0.22 billion, and the cumulative export volume reached 1.518 billion us dollars, up 20% year-on-year, while the cumulative export volume of cadmium and nickel batteries reached 87.5373 million, down 60.8% year-on-year. The export volume of button type alkaline manganese battery, cylinder type alkaline manganese battery, lithium primary battery, lithium ion battery and lead-acid battery has decreased. Other alkali-manganese batteries, mainly square alkali-manganese batteries, such as 6LF22, have seen a sharp decline in the export value. Exports of lead-acid batteries for industrial use, such as stationary, energy storage and traction, fell by half.
Industry analysis, cadmium nickel batteries are mainly used in power tools, according to the eu battery directive, included in the category of restricted products. Because many countries have issued environmental protection policies for nickel-metal batteries to limit their use scope and market size, China has also issued relevant environmental protection policies, including nickel-metal cadmium batteries in the double-high directory, and cancelled export tax rebate, prohibit processing trade. Due to the frequent incidents of cadmium pollution, some enterprises have terminated the production of cadmium nickel batteries. Affected by the financial crisis, the production and sales of power tools decline, lithium ion battery market competition intensification, multiple pressure lead to pick nickel battery market contraction, export star significantly reduced.
In addition, the total export volume of ordinary zinc-manganese batteries and nickel-hydrogen batteries is 258 million, down 29.8% year-on-year, and the decline rate of its export volume is 10 percentage points higher than the export volume. Relevant experts suggest that enterprises should increase the unit price of batteries.
