Battery Electric Vehicles is projected as the most lucrative segment
Unstable supply of raw material
The battery manufacturers have to procure multiple raw materials for building a battery. The major raw materials essential for manufacturing automotive batteries are cobalt, lithium, and manganese. The availability of cobalt and lithium is negligible in the North American region as the majority of Cobalt is mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and China. For instance, according to the data published by Cobalt Institute in 2018, 47% of global refining of cobalt took place in China. Besides cobalt, raw materials such as lithium and manganese are also scarce in North America and are largely available in Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Chile, China, and South Africa which creates an obstacle for acquiring these raw materials for the battery manufacturers located in North American region. For instance, globally, Australia, Chile, and China were responsible for 52.9%, 21.5%, and 9.7% of the production of lithium respectively. The battery manufacturers also face challenges in the procurement of these raw materials owing to the volatility and price variations of the market of electric vehicle battery raw materials caused by the high concentration, metal oversupply, and economic slowdowns in emerging countries such as China. In addition, the trade war between the U.S. and China has also created additional barriers for procuring these raw materials by the U.S. battery manufacturers, as China is one of the largest exporters of these raw materials.
