Battery Materials Analytics


We have in-house experience both within battery raw materials, battery cell products and battery demand, and we leverage this expertise to provide clients with realistic, fact-based forecasts. Through our proprietary databases and forecasts on electrified transportation and solar, wind and power systems, we are able to understand and predict the complete demand picture for batteries, both for electric vehicles and stationary storage. This is vital in order to capture the complete demand picture for battery raw materials, battery processing and battery cell manufacturing. While other analysts have gained insights into certain segments of battery demand, they struggle see the whole picture, including the impact on raw materials. Our consultants work closely with the management of many stakeholders across all industry segments, providing support for strategy development, business planning and acquisition screening, among other assignments.
