According to Frost & Sullivan, CALB ranks second among Chinese third-party power battery companies in terms of installed capacity in 2021, with a market share of 5.9%, and ranks sixth among global power battery companies with a market share of 3.2%. share. According to the data of the first quarter of 2022, CALB’s market share in the first quarter increased to 8.2%, ranking second among Chinese third-party power battery companies and sixth among global power battery companies, with a market share of 4.5%. . The leading position in the industry is becoming more and more stable.
The company is committed to product competitiveness. While meeting the key needs of high safety, high energy density, and long life products for new energy vehicles and energy storage systems, it adheres to the efficient use of resources and supports sustainable social development. Efforts in these areas have led the company to launch:
High-voltage ternary battery has the characteristics of high energy density, long life and excellent safety, and has become one of the best battery system solutions for passenger cars, and has achieved large-scale installation;
The “magazine” battery took the lead in the industry to pass the acupuncture non-fire test of the ternary battery system, greatly improving the thermal safety level of the ternary battery system, and obtained good application;
The all-pole-tab laminated battery has the characteristics of excellent volumetric energy density and outstanding fast charging performance, and has been successfully equipped with mainstream new platform models of many key customers;
The “One-stop” battery, which has a newly developed minimalist structure, has leading advantages in energy density, safety and economy, and has received high attention from the industry.
At the 2022 World New Energy Vehicle Conference, CALB Chairman Liu Jingyu said that after continuous iterative upgrades, the upcoming 6-series high-voltage products of China Innovation Aviation can reach the level of 300Wh/kg, which can support a range of more than 1000km.
CALB will soon launch high-manganese iron lithium batteries, 350wh/kg high-nickel multi-element batteries, 4C fast-charging batteries, and 400wh/kg semi-solid batteries, all-solid-state batteries, lithium-sulfur batteries and other new system batteries.
The power battery is one of the most core and cost-proportioned components in new energy vehicles. New energy vehicle manufacturers are actively developing high-quality power battery supplier resources with mass production experience to ensure the competitiveness and supply security of their electric vehicles. According to public information, a series of mainframe manufacturers including GAC, Xiaopeng, Changan, Leapao, Geely, Hechuang, Dongfeng, etc. have adopted the power battery solution from CALB. It is worth noting that the pure electric vehicle brand Smart, which is held by Mercedes-Benz AG and Geely Automobile Group Co., Ltd., is also powered by CALB.
In terms of finance, CALB’s revenue from 2019 to 2021 was 1.733 billion yuan, 2.825 billion yuan, and 6.817 billion yuan, with a year-on-year growth rate of 63% and 141%.

In the first half of this year, CALB announced a new round of capacity expansion. It plans to build power battery and energy storage production bases in Guangzhou, Guangdong, Jiangmen, Sichuan, and Wuhan, Hubei, with a total planned capacity exceeding 130GWh. According to the plan proposed by Chairman Liu Jingyu last year, the company’s power battery production capacity will be increased to 500GWh in 2025, and 1000GWh in 2030.
On August 30, Hurun Report released the “2022 Mid-Year Global Unicorn List”. CALB ranked 57th with “its innovation and high growth in the field of new energy power batteries”, up 53 places from last year. .
