Electric Vehicle Batteries, Metals & Manufacturing till 2030- Post-Covid

Opportunities during and beyond the slowdown

The electric vehicle (EV) battery industry presents an opportunity in which “you either go big or you go home”, says Peter Carlsson, CEO of Northvolt.

Going big, however, could present challenges at multiple levels, not only with raw material feeds that were already a problem under more than a few variables pre-Covid.

Our report, Electric Vehicle Batteries, Metals & Manufacturing to 2030, examines the impact of these challenges on the short and long term outlook of the electric vehicle battery industry. We believe high nickel EV battery technologies will grow at 47% CAGR by 2025.
