According to the recently "China's Battery Industry Investment, Financing, Mergers and Acquisitions Strategy Study (2012)" shows that, as the national environmental protection agencies increase efforts to rectify the industry and improve industry standards, the industry will fall behind two-thirds in the next three years. With the elimination of production capacity, the number of lead-acid battery manufacturers will be reduced from 2,000 to no more than 300, and the overall industry concentration is expected to increase.

The “Entry of Lead-acid Battery Industry” drafted by the Ministry of Industry and the Ministry of Environmental Protection (Draft for Soliciting Opinions) was announced on the official website of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. The current solicitation of comments has ended. Industry sources said that the possibility of substantial changes in the future regulations is very small, a large number of unqualified lead-acid battery companies will be forced to stop production, coupled with lead-acid batteries are faced with the replacement of nickel-metal hydride batteries and lithium-ion batteries, the entire lead-acid The growth rate of battery production will gradually slow down.

According to statistics, there are currently more than 2,000 lead-acid battery companies in the country, of which about 10 are enterprises with an output value of more than 2 billion yuan, and 260 are companies with more than 100 million yuan. The concentration of the entire industry is very decentralized. Wu Hui believes that the means of industrial integration in the future will be implemented in terms of capacity constraints, technical restrictions, and site selection restrictions. Many SMEs will gradually withdraw, and the transformation and upgrading of technologies will become the main trend of the industry's future development.
