Morgan Stanley cut its forecast for battery demand in 2018 by 21% to 51 gigawatts, but maintained its forecast for 2019-2020.

SHANGHAI, Sept. 29 (SMM) – Morgan Stanley cut its forecast for battery demand in 2018 by 21% to 51 gigawatts, but maintained its forecast for 2019-2020.

China will delay implementation of new energy vehicle credit policy by one year, which is the reason behind the downward revision in forecast.

Demand for high-quality battery will grow faster than supply from major battery producers in 2018, though.

It will become a trend for battery to replace internal combustion engine over the next five years.
