SAE International and ABOUT Publishing Group Agree to Strategic Publishing Partnership

WARRENDALE, Pa., Feb. 23, 2012 - SAE International  and ABOUT Publishing Group have agreed to a strategic partnership that enables SAE International to sell selected ABOUT Publishing  market reports.

This new endeavor will focus on content that is highly pertinent to mobility engineers, especially for those interested in the field of electrification of the vehicle.  The most recent report just released by ABOUT Automotive analyses the hot topic of EV/Hybrid batteries, and offers a realistic, independent perspective – steering clear of much of the hype that surrounds this sector. The study predicts that although global demand for hybrid and pure electric vehicles will create enormous opportunities for battery and battery material manufacturers, particularly those producing lithium-ion batteries and materials, pure electric vehicles (EVs) will not enjoy major growth until after 2020 – much later than many current industry forecasts predict.

The study covers 13 battery and 15 battery material manufacturers (with a particular focus on those based in Japan) and all leading auto makers.
