SHANGHAI, Sept. 9 (SMM) – China’s nine listed lead-acid battery makers saw net profits record a fresh high since H1 2013 in the first half of 2015, SMM estimated.
Net profits totaled 1.05 billion yuan ($ 0.16 billion) in H1 at those nine battery producers in Shanghai, Shenzhen and Hong Kong, jumping 35.05% from 778 million yuan a year ago. Those companies include Tianneng Group, Chaowei Power, Camel Group, Narada Power, Fengfan, Sacred Sun, Dynavolt Power, Wolong Electric and Wanli Group. Shenzhen Center Power Tech was listed on December 3, 2014 and thus temporarily has not been included here.
Slack consumption in traditional lead-acid battery market forced battery makers to turn their eyes to high-end and environment-friendly batteries, citing lithium batteries, start-stop batteries and lead-carbon batteries. This was cited as the reason for the surge in H1’s net profits, SMM explained.
