Dual cell battery penetration exceeded 5 percent owing to fast charging application. We note the rise in prices of major battery materials such as Lithium, contributed to an increase in smartphone battery cell cost. Moreover, the decline in the production of smartphones due to supply shortages impacted the growth in battery cell shipments.”
