Save the date for our next Battery Live Talk. This time, we will discuss the potential strategies that could enable European equipment manufacturers to gain a stronger foothold in this dynamic market.

Don't miss out on this panel discussion and join us to dive into the topic together with Sarah Vogl and Aiko Bünting (TÜV Rheinland) of the team of the Accompanying Research on Battery Cell Production and engage with experts in the field.

What will be addressed?

  • What is the present status of European equipment manufacturers within the battery ecosystem?
  • How to gain a foothold in the dynamic battery market?
  • How can cooperation enhance competitiveness?

In 2023, the leading battery cell producers for electric vehicles were solely from China, Japan, and South Korea. This enduring dominance has fostered a robust equipment manufacturing industry in Asia, specializing in the battery sector’s demands. These manufacturers supply not only Asia but also Europe. Even emerging European cell manufacturers, like Volkswagen’s battery subsidiary PowerCo, tap into the expertise of Asian equipment manufacturers. Join us to discuss strategies for European equipment manufacturers to level the playing field in this dynamic market.
