Lead–Acid Battery Market to Reach $70.7 Billion by 2023

Published Date:   October 2018

Lead–acid battery market is projected to reach $70.7 billion by 2023, according to P&S Intelligence.

Increasing demand for electric vehicles and automobiles coupled with urbanization and industrialization in emerging economies are likely to create demand for applications of lead–acid batteries and thus expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period.

Insights on market segments

On the basis of construction, the lead–acid battery market is categorized into flooded and valve regulated lead–acid (VRLA). Traditionally, flooded lead-acid battery held the larger share in the market, contributing more than 51.0% in terms of volume. This is in coherence with its cost-effectiveness for entry level start-stop vehicles over its counterpart. Additionally, increasing application of flooded lead–acid battery in marine applications is further estimated to augment its demand in the future.

Lead Acid Battery Market

Based on type, the market for lead–acid battery is bifurcated into standby, motive, and starting, lighting, and ignition (SLI). In 2017, SLI category was the largest type in the market, constituting a market share of more than 55.0% in terms of volume. The wide range of advantages such as high durability, reliability, and low maintenance requirements are likely to increase its penetration in the automotive sector, which in turn, will drive its demand in the market during the forecast period.

On basis of application, the lead–acid battery market is classified into automobile, utilities, construction, telecommunication, marine, leisure, uninterrupted power supply (UPS), and others. The others category comprises military and mining applications. Automotive was the largest application area in the market, contributing more than 65.0% share in terms of volume in 2017. This is ascribed to significant battery life; low cost; and high performance, a trait characteristic of lead-acid battery.
