DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Assessment of China's Wine Market 2017" report to their offering. The global wine industry has registered a decline of 5% in 2016, lowest production rate in the last two decades. More than 60% of the global wine industry market share is dominated by the US, Europe, Japan, and China. While the global wine production declined, the rising demand of wine in non-traditional markers has led to exports doubling over the past 20 years. Europe remains the global leader of wine supply, exporting -55% of its annual production. While China is globally the largest consumer of spirits, there is still scope for wine consumption to grow. With per capita wine consumption at 1.34 litres, China ranks 36th globally as compared with France which has a per capita wine consumption of 47.19 litres. Wine sales experienced a slowdown in China post the introduction of austerity measures in 2013. Growth slowed down from 65% year-on-year in 2011 to 3% year-on-year during 2014. The biggest hit was on domestic wines, which fell in terms of volume from 142m cases in 2012 to 119m in 2014. However, in 2015, the market experienced a bounce back and growth rate by volume was approximately 50% year-on-year. The initiatives and performance of key players including Changyu Pioneer Wine Co., China Foods Ltd., Wei Long Grape Wine Co., CITIC Guoan Wine Co., Tonghua Grape Wine Co., along with the current market scenario has also been studied. The report contains latest industry leader's opinion. For more information about this report visit

Li1+x(Ni1/3Mn1/3Co1/3)1-xO2 layered materials were synthesized by the co-precipitation method with different Li/M molar ratios (M = Ni + Mn + Co). Elemental titration evaluated by inductively coupled plasma spectrometry (ICP), structural properties studied by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Rietveld analysis of XRD data, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and magnetic measurements carried out by superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUID) showed the well-defined α-NaFeO2 structure with cationic distribution close to the nominal formula. The Li/Ni cation mixing on the 3b Wyckoff site of the interlayer space was consistent with the structural model [Li1-yNiy]3b[Lix+yNi(1-x)/3-yMn(1-x)/3Co(1-x)/3]3aO2 (x = 0.02, 0.04) and was very small. Both Rietveld refinements and magnetic measurements revealed a concentration of Ni2+-3b ions lower than 2%; moreover, for the optimized sample synthesized at Li/M = 1.10, only 1.43% of nickel ions were located into the Li sublattice. Electrochemical properties were investigated by galvanostatic charge-discharge cycling. Data obtained with Li1+x(Ni1/3Mn1/3Co1/3)1-xO2 reflected the high degree of sample optimization. An initial discharge capacity of 150 mAh g-1 was delivered at 1 C-rate in the cut-off voltage of 3.0-4.3 V. More than 95% of its initial capacity was retained after 30 cycles at 1 C-rate. Finally, it is demonstrated that a cation mixing below 2% is considered as the threshold for which the electrochemical performance does not change for Li1+x(Ni1/3Mn1/3Co1/3)1-xO2. © 2009 Elsevier B.V.

LiNi1/3Mn1/3Co1/3O2 compound was successfully synthesized by the co-precipitation method. The effect of H2O on LiNi1/3Mn1/3Co1/3O 2 in humid atmosphere was investigated by structural, magnetic and electrochemical analysis, and Raman spectroscopy. The consequence is that immersion of LiNi1/3Mn1/3Co1/3O2 to H2O and exposure of LiNi1/3Mn1/3Co 1/3O2 to humid atmosphere (ambient atmosphere, 20 °C, 50% relative humidity) led to a rapid attack that manifests itself by the delithiation of the surface layer of the particles and the concomitant formation of LiOH and Li2 CO3 at the surface. This aging process occurred during the first few minutes, then it is saturated, and the thickness of the surface layer at saturation is 10 nm. After aging, an initial discharge capacity of 139 mAh/g was delivered at 1C-rate in the cut-off voltage of 3.0-4.3 V. About 95% of its initial capacity was retained after 30 cycles. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.

The electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) of a lithium-ion battery is usually measured at open-circuit state under a constant state-of-charge (SOC). In this way, the differences between charge and discharge cannot be distinguished, because they both occur in one cycle of the alternating current. To explore the differences, in this study, we propose a new implementation method measuring the dynamic EIS (DEIS) of a LiMn2O4/Li half-cell (0.8 mAh) in the galvanostatic mode while the cell is under charging or discharging at a series of direct currents (DC). The results show the charge transfer resistance, Rct, decreases with the increased DC. Also, Rct during charging is usually smaller than that during discharging. The dependency of Rct on the DC can be explained according to the Butler-Volmer equation. The difference in Rct between charge and discharge, ΔRct, is ascribed to a significant surface concentration variation caused by the DC. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

The LiNi0.5-xCuxMn1.5-yAl yO4 (x = 0, 0.05, y = 0, 0.05) powders are synthesized by liquid co-precipitation and wet-milling. The doping effect on LiNi 0.5Mn1.5O4 by Al3+, Cu2+, and Al3+/Cu2+ co-doping are investigated and compared in relation to physical and electrochemical characterization, namely, through X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, electronic conductivity, cyclic voltammetry and cycle tests. Results suggest that both Al3+ and Cu2+ doping effectively improve electrochemical performance of LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4, although the effect is different between the two cations. All doped samples exceed 95% capacity retention after 100 cycles at room temperature compared to 92% retention for the undoped sample. Moreover, co-doped LiNi0.45Cu0.05Mn 1.45Al0.05O4 exhibits the best cyclic performance with slight superiority. © 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Information on battery internal temperature is valuable to enhance the understanding of thermo-electrochemical reactions, to validate simulation models, and to refine battery thermal design. In this study, 12 thermocouples are embedded at strategically-chosen locations inside a 25 Ah laminated lithium-ion battery. Another 12 thermocouples are attached at the corresponding locations on the surface. The temporal and spatial variations of the temperature are measured at a series of discharge rates under different thermal conditions. The thermal response of these locations is also analyzed. The major findings include: First, the internal temperatures could differ from the surface for as large as 1.1 C, even for a thin laminated cell. Second, the time constants of thermal response at the internal locations are generally dozens of seconds larger than on the surface. Third, the internal variation in the plane direction reaches above 10 C under adiabatic 1.5 C discharge, much larger than in the through-plane direction, indicating the in-plane heat conductivity needs improvement. Finally, forced convection is effective to suppress the temperature rise as well as the variation. The direct measurement of internal temperature initiated in this study paves the way for implanting sensors/microchips in single cell to extract multiple physico-electrochemical signals simultaneously. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

The spherical Li-rich materials 0.3Li2MnO3·0. 7LiNi0.5Mn0.5O2 are synthesized by a standard co-precipitation method followed by solid state sintering. The primary particle size and morphologies of the 0.3Li2MnO3·0. 7LiNi0.5Mn0.5O2 materials can be readily controlled by altering the heat-treatment temperature. With different primary size, the materials show different rate discharge capabilities. However, due to similar chemical composition, they show similar discharge capacity at high temperature and low current density. Subsequent galvanostatic intermittent titration tests indicate that the larger the particle size, the larger the chemical diffusion coefficient of the Li+. The relationship between the primary particle size and electrochemical kinetics is discussed. Of all the samples in this study, the material with a primary particle size of 200 nm, obtained at 900 C, exhibits the best integrated electrochemical performance. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.
