Future of EV battery production shines bright in France

France's plug-in vehicle market remains firmly in its infancy, but when it comes to making the batteries that power those cars, the country's prospects are tres grande, according to at least one report. The home of Renault has an electric-vehicle battery industry whose market value will surge to $7.2 billion in 2020 from $380 million last year, marking a compound growth rate of more than 44 percent a year, Hybrid Cars says, citing a study from Research and Markets. In fact, by the end of the decade, France will represent the world's third-largest EV battery industry – behind Japan and China – and will account for 16 percent of the world's EV battery production capacity. You can find Research and Markets' summary of its 154-page report below.

Naturally, Renault, which along with its sister company Nissan is investing an estimated $5 billion in electric-drive technology, is a major player here. The company is building a factory near Paris with an annual production capacity up to 350,000 EV batteries a year and is hoping that increased plug-in vehicle incentives from the government will help France reach its stated goal of having two million EVs on the country's roads by 2020.
