About the Report

The global lead acid battery market has been expanding rapidly due to increased demand for energy storage solutions in various end-use industries including SLI batteries in automotives, stationary industrial, and energy storage. For more than a century, lead acid batteries have been the dominant battery technology, and they are still widely utilized due to their low cost, reliability, and longevity. The lead acid battery market is predicted to increase significantly during the forecast period, driven by the following factors: 



Rising Demand for Automobiles

The expanding automobile industry has increased demand for lead acid batteries, which are extensively used in vehicles for starting, lighting, and ignition (SLI) applications. Lead acid batteries are preferred for SLI applications due to their inexpensive cost, durability, and ability to generate rapid bursts of power.


The need for lead acid batteries is expected to rise further as the vehicle industry expands, particularly in emerging nations. This is due to the fact that many automobiles in these areas are older models that require replacement batteries, and the market for new vehicles is also fast rising. Furthermore, the growing popularity of hybrid and electric vehicles is likely to boost demand for lead acid batteries, as these vehicles frequently require auxiliary lead-acid batteries for features such as power steering and air conditioning.


The global Electric Vehicle (EV) sales during the forecast period. The global EV market share has been growing at an impressive pace from 0.2% in 2013 to 13% in 2021. Worldwide EV sales have remained high. In 2022, a total of 10.5 million new BEVs and PHEVs were delivered, representing a +55% increase over 2021.


Global EV Sales


The rising environmental concerns and an immediate need to reduce the emissions from the transportation sector have pushed several governments to extend fiscal incentives to EV manufacturers and tax deductions to consumers on the sale and purchase of electric vehicles (EVs), coupled with factors such as decreasing price of batteries and technological advancements in the electric vehicles and its charging infrastructure are driving the global electric vehicle market.


Some of the Other Drivers:

  • Expanding infrastructure of data centers and telecommunication are driving the lead-acid battery market. 
  • Increasing investments in electric vehicles and growing manufacturing activities in emerging economies boost lead-acid battery sales. 
  • Increasing aftermarket sales in UPS and transportation are driving the market for lead-acid batteries.


However, the strict environmental regulations imposed by various governments around the world, and the increasing competition from alternative battery markets, such as lithium ion batteries market, pose a challenge to the lead acid battery market.


Lead-acid batteries are rechargeable batteries that use sponge lead and lead peroxide to convert chemical energy into electrical power. Such a type of battery is called a lead-acid battery. 


A lead cell is made from three essential components: the cathode, anode, and electrolyte; where the cathode is the positive terminal, the anode is the negative terminal, and the electrolyte connects both these terminals to drive an electrochemical reaction to produce electricity. 


Lead-acid batteries find wide usage in automobiles as it delivers high power to start the engine. The Lead-acid batteries used in forklifts, golf carts, and industrial cleaners. High use of lead-acid batteries in forklifts for low cost, reliability, and a well-established product supply chain is likely to positively influence the market. The lead-acid battery is widely used in automobiles The superior, quality, safety, and recycling process of these batteries are anticipated to increase the market growth over the forecast period.


Lead–acid batteries are classified into two types: flooded batteries and valve-regulated batteries.


Flooded lead acid batteries

Flooded lead-acid batteries, also known as wet-cell batteries, have a liquid electrolyte that flows freely within the battery shell. The liquid electrolyte is commonly a dilute sulfuric acid solution. Flooded lead-acid batteries are noted for their large capacity and low cost, making them excellent for use in high-power applications such as forklifts, electric vehicles, and renewable energy systems. 


Nevertheless, flooded lead-acid batteries require periodic maintenance, such as adding distilled water to maintain the electrolyte level and keep the plates from being exposed to air, which can damage the battery.


Valve regulated lead acid batteries

Valve regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries, also known as sealed lead-acid batteries, are constructed similarly to flooded lead-acid batteries but feature a sealed shell that prevents electrolyte spillage. These batteries require no maintenance, making them perfect for applications where maintenance is difficult to obtain, such as emergency lighting, alarm systems, and backup stationary batteries. Because there is no water loss through evaporation, VRLA batteries have a longer lifespan than flooded lead-acid batteries.


Advantages of Lead Acid Batteries

  • Low-cost and simple manufacture Low cost per watt-hour
  • High specific power.
  • capable of high discharge currents
  • Good performance at low and high temperatures
  • No block-wise or cell-wise Battery Management Systems (BMS) required


Disadvantages of Lead Acid Batteries

  • Low specific energy; poor weight-to-energy ratio
  • Slow charging: Fully saturated charge takes 14–16 hours. Need for storage in charged condition to prevent sulfation Limited cycle life; repeated deep-cycling reduces battery life Watering requirement for flooded type.
  • Transportation restrictions for the flooded type
  • Adverse environmental impact


 Lead Acid Battery Market Opportunities

  • lead-acid batteries are extremely common in the telecommunications industry for power backup application. As a result of the recent developments in the sector due to the advent of 5G, which requires more telecom towers relative to its predecessor technology (4G), lead-acid battery manufacturers have the chance to create battery solutions that are more technologically advanced and energy-efficient to provide backup power to the towers.
  • Due to their dependability and relatively low price, lead-acid batteries are frequently used in applications that need the storage of renewable energy sources like solar and wind power. Lead-acid battery producers stand to benefit from the widespread use of renewable energy sources, which is driving up demand for efficient methods of energy storage and providing the industry with a new market opportunity.
  • Lead-acid batteries are highly recyclable, and there is an opportunity for manufacturers to expand their business, since lead is a valuable material that can be recycled and used in the manufacturing of new batteries, recycling used batteries can also be a lucrative business opportunity.


Recent Developments

  • In Feb 2023, Monbat, a Bulgarian lead acid battery manufacturer, announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding between its Italian subsidiary STC and the US-Singaporean ACE Green Recycling to investigate the development of battery recycling facilities and equipment supply.
  • Amara Raja Batteries announced plans to invest USD one billion over the next five to seven years in capex for a 10 to 12 Gigawatt hours (Lithium ion battery) facility under the government of India's ACC(Advanced Chemical Cell) PLI (Production Linked Incentives) Program.
