Competitive Landscape
In the recent past, partnership and new product launches have been the major recent activities in this industry. The growth in demand for advanced and light battery enclosure systems has made its providers focus on differentiated products, mainly based on aluminum and composite materials.

  • In February 2021, CSP, along with its parent company Teijin, introduced a patent-pending clip system that replaces the need for bolts in the process of joining the top and bottom of an electric vehicle battery case. This clip system improves the seal, reduces assembly costs, and makes the batteries easier to service when needed. The clips will be manufactured at CSP Stamping in Manchester, Michigan.
  • In December 2020, CSP and its parent company Teijin introduced a new innovative honeycomb class A panel technology and an advanced, multi-material EV battery enclosure for electric vehicles.
  • In April 2020, the company collaborated with BMW Group to manufacture battery enclosures made of fiber-reinforced plastics for BMW i3 and BMW 7 series.
  • In February 2020, Minth Group announced that it had obtained aluminum battery box orders from the Volkswagen Group (V.W.). These aluminum battery housing enclosures include three types of aluminum battery housing, including short, medium, and long models, which can be used for all B, C, and D electric vehicle models of the Volkswagen Group and is expected to support the manufacture of vehicles as per Volkswagen Group’s plan.
  • In January 2020, Nemak announced its plans to supply battery housings for the Ford Mustang Mach-E that will be produced in North America.
  • In August 2019, the company launched a high-strength automotive aluminum product for various applications such as roof rail inserts, bumper beams, and electric battery enclosure components.
  • In April 2019, SGL Carbon collaborated with NIO to develop a new battery enclosure prototype made up of CFRP for NIO’s electric vehicles.
