    Market Highlights

    The world is moving fast from fossil fuel power to emission-free electrification. Batteries, as a vital storage tool, are taking the center stage in enabling this transition. Batteries are stand-alone power sources that convert chemical energy into electrical energy through a chemical reaction. Between non-rechargeable (primary) and rechargeable (secondary) batteries, the latter are essentially used as energy storage devices where they are electrically connected to the main energy source, charged by it, and also supply energy when required. The main battery technologies are lead-acid, lithium-ion, and nickel-cadmium. These technologies find applications across industries; however, the scope of this report is limited to batteries used in the marine, railway, defense, aviation, and telecom industries only.

    The battery industry has been experiencing the most disruptive journey in the past few years due to the supply chain crisis. The current battery production in the USA is struggling to keep up with the rising demand. In addition to the lack of manufacturing of Li-ion batteries in North America, there is also a shortage of cathode and anode materials, for which, the USA is solely dependent on producers located overseas.

    The sudden outburst of the pandemic in 2020 further dampened the market. As a result of that, there was an enormous decline in the demand for batteries across industries. Overall, the battery market witnessed a significant decline of -6%+ in 2020. However, the industry began rebounding in the year 2021 with the recovering demand from the defense and telecom industries and the restart of aircraft deliveries. Furthermore, an incessant shift from traditional lead-acid batteries to lithium-ion batteries and the declining cost of the latter is likely to drive market growth in the years to come. Overall, the battery market is likely to rebound at a promising CAGR of 3.2% in the long run to reach US$ 8.7 Billion in 2027.

    Recent Product Developments: Long service life, low maintenance, and reduced cost are the indispensable focus areas of the leading players. Some of the recent product developments are:

    • EnerSys’ NexSys PURE Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) batteries, help reduce the unexpected operating costs associated with conventional lead-acid batteries.
    • Saft’ ULM® batteries deliver the industry’s lowest total cost of ownership and offer high reliability over a long service life.
    • EnerSys’ PowerSafe® SBS batteries deliver long life, high-energy density, and superior shelf life for a wide range of applications.
    • Hawker Maintenance-free batteries by EnerSys.
    • 20Ah-HP SCiB™ rechargeable Li-ion batteries by Toshiba Corporation deliver both high energy and high power.

    JVs and Acquisitions: Major companies in the battery market are performing mergers & acquisitions to quickly gain the leading position and tap growing opportunities in this briskly expanding market. For instance;

    • With the acquisition of Alpha Technologies in 2018, EnerSys was able to extend its product portfolio in the telecom and industrial markets
    • To further expand its energy storage system solutions, East Penn Manufacturing Co. acquired the majority stake in Navitas Systems in 2019.
    • In line with its strategy to increase sales of premium products, EnerSys acquired N Holding AB (Parent company of NorthStar) in 2019.
