Abide by the global commitments to reduce vehicular pollution during the COP26 summit in 2021, India is witnessing the largest transition in the mobility pattern. The nationwide transition to electric mobility led to the exponential growth of the Electric vehicles battery market in India.

Modern electric cars use rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries, which indeed are in great demand now.  As of now most of the batteries are imported from Japan and China, which resulted in the higher cost of electric cars compared to conventional fuel cars.

To tackle this issue, Rs 180 Billion was allotted under Production Linked Incentive (PLI) for the R&D and manufacture of at least 50 Gigawatts(GW) of Lithium-Ion batteries in the Indian Market. To take advantage of the subsidies, major battery and automobile giants have accelerated their R&D for EV battery development in India.

Just like the EV manufacturers, the battery manufacturers for EVs are also in tough competition today.  Here we will provide you the list of the top 10 battery manufacturers which are currently leading the EV battery market in India.
