EV-volumes breaks down the numbers even further, showing that four different lithium-ion chemistries haven taken the majority of the market:

NCA (high energy dense cells produced mainly by Panasonic for Tesla), NMC (various brands around the world), LFP (mostly Chinese plug-ins) and LMO (mostly Nissan & Mitsubishi).

Installed capacity by battery chemistry:

  • NCA - 14,810 MWh
  • NMC - 12,990 MWh
  • LFP - 9,528 MWh
  • LMO - 8,682 MWh
  • LTO - 745 MWh
  • Lead Acid - 243 MWh
  • LMP - 217 MWh
And here is great comparison between suppliers (big props to Jose Pontes at EV-Volume for the effort):
