03 Power battery circuit , Unicorns are frequent

There is no need to talk more about the popularity of new energy vehicles . As the core component of new energy vehicles , The power battery track has also been surging .

At present , Domestic power battery manufacturers are mainly divided into three categories : Such as Yiwei lithium energy 、 Xinwangda and other enterprises that cross the border from the consumption of lithium batteries ; Such as honeycomb energy 、 Juwan technology research, an independent business division separated from automobile enterprises ; Such as China Innovation airlines 、 Funeng technology 、 Such as GuoXuan high tech “ native ” Power battery manufacturer .

Sky eye examination shows , By 2022 year 4 month 1 Japan , Our country has more than 9500 A power battery related enterprise . From the time of establishment ,67.7% Power battery related enterprises were established in 5 Within the year . among ,2021 Newly registered enterprises in 1100 home , Speed up 13.0%.

This situation is reflected in the primary market , Manufacturers need huge capital scale to complete production expansion and development , The capital is also optimistic about this track , Multiple investment . such as ,4 month 11 Japan , Maxon energy complete B+ Round of funding , from GGV Jiyuan capital investment . This family was founded in 2018 New energy battery enterprise in , since 2021 year 4 Since the angel round financing was obtained in June , It has been completed within a year 4 Round of funding , Behind it is the innocents Angel Fund 、 Source capital 、 Junlian capital 、GGV Jiyuan capital and other well-known institutions .

3 month 29 Japan , As an important battery business segment of Wanxiang Group , Wanxiang 123 obtained the shares of PCCW capital and other shareholders 9 Billion yuan of capital injection .

3 month 28 Japan , Weilan new energy obtained strategic financing . at present , The enterprise has completed 7 Round of funding , The capital camp behind it is also luxurious , Including venture capital of Chinese Academy of Sciences 、IDG capital 、 Weilai capital 、 Hubble invested 、 Capitals 、 Xiaomi Changjiang Industrial Fund 、 Geely holdings, etc . Besides , And Xinwangda car battery 、 Zhongkehai sodium 、 Ruipu energy 、 Honeycomb energy and other enterprises obtained financing in the first quarter of this year .

With hot money pouring in , according to an uncompleted statistic ,2022 First quarter of 2009 , The total number of new power battery projects in China is 29 individual , The total investment is up to 3391.1 One hundred million yuan , The planned power battery capacity is close to 877GWh.

On the other hand , Set off by the hot atmosphere of the new energy track , A surge in valuations is inevitable . Unicorns have emerged in the field of power batteries : On the same day that PCCW capital announced its stake in Wanxiang 123 , Wanxiang money flow It also announced that , Proposed capital contribution 40 Million yuan invested in Wanxiang 123 . According to the media , After Wanxiang 123 completes this round of financing , It is expected that the post investment valuation will exceed 400 One hundred million yuan ; Honeycomb energy has been completed 7 Round of funding , The officially disclosed transaction amount alone has exceeded 200 RMB . At the completion of 2022 year 1 After months of strategic financing , Honeycomb energy is valued at 460 RMB ; And media coverage , Rippler energy is looking to close 300 A valuation of 100 million yuan , Raise funds from new and old investors for about 30 One hundred million yuan .

Besides , Xiao peng car 、IDG capital 、 Ideal car 、 The valuation of Xinwangda automobile battery invested by Weilai automobile is 124 RMB ; The valuation of Weilan new energy has reached 150 RMB 100 million ; Guohong hydrogen energy, which focuses on the industrialization of hydrogen fuel cells, is opening a new round of financing , The pre investment valuation has reached 70 Billion . Hubble invested 、 Zhongke Chuangxing 、 At present, the valuation of zhongkehai sodium, a sodium ion battery company invested by institutions such as guokejia and, has exceeded 50 One hundred million yuan , Compared with the same period last year 800%.

Invest heavily in R & D , Power battery manufacturers from China have made great achievements all over the world . According to the global market research organization “SNE Research” The latest data ,2022 In the first quarter of, the top ten enterprises in the global power battery were Ningde times 、LG New energy 、 BYD 、 panasonic 、SK On、 China Innovation airlines 、 samsung SDI、 GuoXuan high tech 、 Hive energy 、 Yiwei lithium energy . It is worth noting that , In the top ten , Chinese power battery manufacturers occupy six seats . The market share of the top ten power battery manufacturers is 91.8%, Chinese power battery manufacturers occupy 55.7%.

Behind this , We can see the strong growth of Chinese power battery enterprises . however , As the market share continues to be snatched by leading enterprises , The power battery industry has also shown “ Heng Qiang the strong , The weak are always weak ” The trend of .

Back to Juwan Technology Research Institute , Compared with the above enterprises, the advantages are not obvious . It can be seen that , The customer structure of leading enterprises is very diversified . The largest customer of Ningde era is Tesla ,“ Circle of friends ” It also includes the public 、 saic 、 SAIC general 、 Goodway 、 The Great Wall 、 changan 、 BMW brilliance 、 Dongfeng motor 、 Yutong and other domestic mainstream auto enterprises .

Although BYD's power batteries are mostly used for its own brands , But there are rumors , BYD has won Tesla 10GWh The order of . New customers of dark horse honeycomb energy except Great Wall motor Other than its own brand , It also includes Geely 、 dongfeng 、 Which zha 、 Zero run at home and abroad 25 Home car companies .

And Juwan technology research XFC At present, the high-speed battery is mainly used in the models of GAC ai'an . To catch up with the giants , While developing , We also need to open up the market , Cooperate with more car companies . To be fair , It's only one year old , The establishment of Juwan Technology Research Institute has been very bright , Contrast giant , Juwan technology research still needs to go through a necessary and common dormant period . But in a constantly squeezed market , How much market and time is left for it ?
