Policy Support
Global Promotion of New Energy Vehicles
Benefiting from carbon neutrality and peak carbon policies, the demand for clean energy vehicles is increasing, leading to a corresponding increase in demand for lithium batteries, a primary upstream component. Synthetic graphite anode, as one of the raw materials for lithium batteries, will have increased demand driven by the strong future demand for electric vehicles. The global and China electric vehicle sales volumes from 2020 to 2025 are projected to grow at compound annual growth rates (CAGR) of 37% and 41%, respectively.
Growth of Electric Vehicle Sales Volume

  • CAGR of China Electric Vehicle Sales Volume
Strong Growth in Global Energy Storage
Global new energy storage installations increased by 7GW in 2021, and it is projected to increase by 41GW globally by 2025, with a compound growth rate of 56%.
China's mandatory energy storage requirement and the U.S. Independent Renewable Analysis (IRA) Act's independent energy storage Investment Tax Credit (ITC) subsidy policy have both propelled the rapid development of the energy storage market in both countries.

Localization Policies for the European Anode Materials Supply Chain

Europe is expected to become the second-largest growth market for lithium batteries after China. The EU has decided to ban the sale of internal combustion engine vehicles from 2035, leading to insufficient lithium battery supply in Europe and a strong demand for graphite anode materials over the next decade.

Regulatory issues from the EU Commission will favor the localization of graphite anode material manufacturing in Europe, enhancing Europe's willingness to produce key materials domestically (EU Battery Regulation, Raw Materials Regulation, etc.). The EU Battery Regulation aims to strengthen the sustainability and competitiveness of the EU's internal battery industry and emphasizes the importance of developing sustainable and environmentally friendly battery technologies, including graphite anode materials.

Critical Raw Materials Act restricts strategic raw materials value chain in the EU with annual consumption from a single third country not exceeding 65%

The Critical Raw Materials Act sets benchmarks for the diversification of strategic raw materials (including synthetic and natural graphite) in the EU, with annual consumption from a single third country not exceeding 65%, helping to increase the autonomy of the local critical raw materials supply chain.

The European anode materials supply chain is beginning to localize, and Sanergy has established the first synthetic graphite anode material manufacturing plant in Italy ahead of other competitors, becoming Europe's first artificial graphite anode material manufacturer.

The Downstream Applications
  • Electric Vehicles (EVs)
    Graphite anode is a key material used in the production of lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles. These batteries power electric vehicles and are one of the core technologies driving the current development of the electric vehicle industry.
  • Energy Storage Systems (ESS)
    In energy storage systems for renewable energy sources such as solar and wind energy, graphite anode materials are used to manufacture efficient and long-life lithium-ion batteries, helping to balance energy supply and demand.
  • Consumer Electronics (3C)
    This category includes smartphones, tablets, laptops, and other portable electronic devices. Graphite anode enables lithium-ion batteries in these devices to be lighter and have larger capacities, thus extending their usage time and device lifespan.
