CATL captured more than 30% of the global market share with a 54.3% YoY growth, making it the only battery supplier in the world to take up such a high market share. It maintained its top position in the global battery usage ranking.
BYD ranked second with a market share of 16% and registered 58.1GWh, nearly double the same period of last year in the Chinese market based on its high popularity.
LG Energy Solution ranked 3rd, posting a 53.2%(51.4GWh) YoY growth, while SK on took the 5th position with a 16.3%(19.0GWh) growth, and Samsung SDI took the 7th position with a 32.0%(15.0GWh) growth.
Panasonic, the only Japanese company in the top 10 on the list, recorded 26.6 GWh, a 38.2% YoY growth. Panasonic, which is one of the major battery suppliers to Tesla, has most of its battery usage installed in Tesla models in the North American market.
