Still problems with battery cell supply

Posted on Thursday, August 28 2008 @ 05:06:55 CEST by

DigiTimes reports sources at notebook battery module makers believe the battery shortage problem may last into 2009.
Despite that some industry players expect battery cell supply will reach an equilibrium in the fourth quarter, sources at Taiwan notebook battery module makers have noted that it is still too early to tell whether supply will be enough to feed demand. They generally believe shortages will only be solved when fresh capacity becomes available from 2009.

Simplo Technology Company (SMP), however, indicated that battery cells will still be in shortage in the third quarter. Despite that supply may not be that tight in the fourth quarter, overall supply will still fail to meet demand, said company sources. LG Chem (LGC) resuming its capacity to normality and additional capacity from China-based vendors are the key factors easing the shortages, the sources explained. But they emphasized that a fundamental improvement will be only seen in mid 2009.
