Battery Market - Future Trends, Demand & Growth!!!

Technological innovations and emerging economies are presumed to drive the battery market growth worldwide.

Market Research Future (MRFR) presumes the global battery market to grow at a CAGR of 10.5% from 2020 to 2027 (forecast period).

A battery is made up of one or more cells that enable chemical energy to be converted into electricity. Batteries are used in transportation, industrial, and commercial applications to provide primary power or as a backup power supply.

The role of electronics in improving vehicle performance has been critical in two areas: refining powertrain performance to reduce emissions and increase fuel consumption and refining chassis, exterior, and interior to boost vehicle safety and comfort. Electronics make up about 40% of the components in a conventional Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicle, and this figure will grow to 75% in hybrid and electric vehicles. These components account for approximately 25% to 30% of the total production cost. These systems also account for 90% of automotive innovations. These advancements in safety, advanced connectivity, and increased telematics availability are expected to serve as a stepping stone for the future growth of electronics in automobiles. The increasing demand for efficiency in automobiles has prompted the creation of innovative systems that aid in fuel conservation. To save fuel, start-stop systems switch off the engine while it is idling. During this time, the battery powers the vehicle's electronics, which also aids in restarting the engine. These advancements also increased the demand for advanced batteries with higher energy density.

COVID-19 Impact on the Global Battery Market

Since the majority of the battery industry supply chain is based in China, the COVID-19 outbreak had a negative effect on battery production and sales during Q1 and Q2 2020. For example, lithium-ion battery sales for electric vehicles (EV) decreased in the United States and China. At the same time, in European countries such as Germany, EV sales increased by approximately 8.5% in Q1 2020. The declining price of a lithium-ion battery and the growing acceptance of electric vehicles are the primary drivers for the industry. However, factors such as a mismatch in raw material demand and supply for battery manufacturing are likely to stymie market growth during the forecast period.

Market Segmentation

The global battery market has been segmented into battery type and application.

By battery type, the global battery market has been segmented into lead-acid, lithium Ion, nickel-metal hydride and nickel-cadmium. 

By application, the global battery market has been segmented into portable, automotive, and industrial.

Regional Analysis

Region-wise, the global battery market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the rest of the world.

Because of growing automobile demand and industrialization, Asia Pacific is dominating the battery industry. Because of increasing automotive development activities, emerging Asia Pacific countries such as China and India are projected to hold the largest market share of the battery market. Growing consumer electronics demand and a rising number of electric vehicles in China and Japan are propelling the market forward.

Because of rising eco-friendly initiatives and the development of technologically advanced vehicles, the North American region is also critical to the growth of the global battery industry. During the forecast period, this area will expand at a rapid rate.
