Global Battery Market to Reach US$173.7 Billion by the Year 2026

Batteries are indispensable power source for a wide variety of power-hungry electronic devices in consumer and industrial applications. Batteries are found in all sectors of the economy that use electronic/electrical equipment, where an AC line cord or other type of energy source does not derive energy. Batteries stock power chemically and transfer power to electronic applications and devices to function properly. Batteries enclosed with cells contain same type of chemistry to match the respective operating devices. The usage of batteries dates back to 200 BC and the modern battery traces its roots to the battery built by Alessandro Volta in the early 19th century. The first batteries made use of basic materials such as Zinc, silver, blotting paper, and salt water to store energy. Over time, the materials used for the construction of batteries and the materials have changed but the operating principle of a battery remains the same to date. Depending on application and power requirement, batteries can be of many types such as Sodium-based, Lead-based, Nickel-based, and Lithium-based. Each battery technology has its unique applications. For instance, Sodium-based batteries are extensively used in small power devices with AA and AAA batteries being the common examples. On the other end of the spectrum, Lithium-based batteries pack high power density and find application in multitude of devices ranging from electronic devices such as mobile phones to electric vehicle batteries.

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for Battery estimated at US$114.9 Billion in the year 2022, is projected to reach a revised size of US$173.7 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 10.3% over the analysis period. Lead Acid, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is projected to grow at a 6.4% CAGR to reach US$46.1 Billion by the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and its induced economic crisis, growth in the Lithium Ion segment is readjusted to a revised 16.7% CAGR for the next 7-year period. This segment currently accounts for a 29.3% share of the global Battery market.

The battery industry banks on replacement sales as demand growth is related to service life. Even long-lasting rechargeable secondary batteries need replacement in the long run. These factors make replacement sales the driving force behind market growth. Another important factor which of late is influencing demand for batteries is product safety and environmental sustainability. Reflective of the fact is the growing global momentum towards banning of hazardous substances, such as mercury, cadmium, and lead from batteries. Already armed with the growing knowledge of harmful impact of batteries, certain regions such as Europe, have formulated directives, which restrict the usage of hazardous components like cadmium in batteries. Therefore, it is not surprising that in the coming years, battery chemistries such as Nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd), would witness lackluster growth, particularly in the developed markets, where environmental concerns are gaining paramount attention among consumer groups and manufacturers alike.

Presently, the consumer batteries market is dominated by secondary batteries segment. The secondary/rechargeable batteries segment would see lithium-ion rechargeable batteries display the maximum growth opportunities, driven by the widespread popularity of smartphones and notebooks/laptops. On the other hand, although alkaline batteries would continue to be a dominant force in the primary batteries market, fastest growth in the segment, however would emanate from emerging chemistries such as primary lithium, thereby offering stiff competition to existing chemistries in the segment. Region-wise, emerging markets will be the chief contributors propelling the market forward in the years to come, all thanks to rising income levels of consumers in these regions. Going forward, battery manufacturers will continue to provide longer lasting batteries by improving the energy density of existing chemistries or by using new chemistries. This factor, coupled with the continuing emergence of power hungry electronic devices, will continue to drive the consumer battery industry forward in the coming years.

The region remains a leading consumer of advanced batteries and is witnessing consistent focus on battery-related innovations. The regional market is gaining from favorable policies that are offering desired boost to electric vehicles. Government policies are paving way for large-scale production of electric vehicles and encouraging customers to embrace the technology. Europe is anticipated to experience a strong growth in the coming years as a result of increasing production and uptake of electric vehicles. European market for Li-ion batteries is being driven by the growing adoption of EVs and the rising sales of portable electronic devices. The increased focus on energy storage systems, specifically for renewable energy technologies, is presenting growth opportunities for the market. The US market for Li-ion battery will be driven by the rising emphasis on use of energy storage systems and the growing importance of clean energy technologies. With the country being an active adopter of battery storage systems based on Li-ion technology, there is high growth potential in this segment. The growing consumer electronics industry is also expected to fuel demand for Li-ion batteries.

Nickel Metal Hydride Segment to Reach $20 Billion by 2026

Nickel metal hydride (NIMH) batteries are a type of rechargeable batteries that are typically characterized by higher energy density, superior capacity, and longer run time between charges. NIMH batteries display high discharge rate, longer life span, and wide operating temperature of -50oC to +85oC. Leveraging the unique properties, NiMH batteries can seamlessly deliver higher levels of energy for today`s electronic products. Made in stable and compatible sizes, NIMH batteries are easy to transport. Leading vendors such as Panasonic offer NiMH batteries that do not associate themselves with air restrictions or regulations and have highest level safety standards. In the global Nickel Metal Hydride segment, USA, Canada, Japan, China and Europe will drive the 3.1% CAGR estimated for this segment.
