QLD unveils Australia’s first Battery Supply Chain Database

Battery Supply Chain Database

The Queensland Government has unveiled Australia’s first Battery Supply Chain Database, a groundbreaking initiative aimed at bolstering the country’s emerging battery manufacturing industry.

Launched by Queensland Manufacturing Minister Glenn Butcher at the Quest Hub in Banyo, this new tool is designed to help manufacturers identify business opportunities and fill supply chain gaps in the rapidly growing battery sector.

Developed in partnership with the Advanced Materials and Battery Council, the database supports the Queensland Battery Industry Strategy.

It will enable battery technology companies to pinpoint supply chain opportunities for domestic production, while also allowing manufacturers outside the battery sector to discover new customers, markets, and potential investors.

The Battery Supply Chain Database is now live and accessible to manufacturers across Australia.

Butcher said this new tool is a great step forward to support an emerging battery industry, and to showcase the potential of Queensland’s manufacturing industry to supply components of the global value chain.

“Importantly, Queensland’s regions will play a major role in supporting new battery technology, with huge dividends expected through the creation of new jobs and more economic growth and long-term prosperity,” Butcher said.

“This can be a valuable tool, that will give a boost to emerging battery technology companies who will be able to identify national business and supply chain opportunities to support domestic production.

“By getting in early, we can ensure Queensland manufacturers have the pioneer’s advantage, staking a claim in the marketplace and becoming established early.”
