    What is Marine Battery?

    A marine battery is a specialized battery designed for use in marine and boating applications. It is specifically engineered to withstand the harsh conditions of marine environments, including constant exposure to moisture, vibrations, and fluctuations in temperature. Marine batteries are used to power various electrical systems and equipment on boats, such as navigation lights, radios, fish finders, bilge pumps, and trolling motors. These batteries are typically deep-cycle batteries, which means they can provide a steady flow of power over an extended period. They are constructed with durable materials and advanced technologies to ensure reliable performance and long-lasting power supply on the water. Marine batteries are essential for powering marine vessels and ensuring a safe and enjoyable boating experience.

    Market Dynamics

    The marine industry is a strong contributor to CO2 emissions and pollution worldwide. Currently, the industry is in a transitional phase, diverging from fossil fuels via alternative technologies and fuels, with the long-term goal of becoming a zero-emission industry. Electric power in the marine industry is critical in solving the problems of waterways. Electric motors can reduce water pollution caused by traditional internal combustion engines, as well as emissions and energy consumption. More than ever, the industry requires fully reliable, efficient, and safe batteries that are also economical and affordable.

    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 li-ion battery manufacturing in North America, there is also a shortage of cathode and anode materials, for which the USA is solely dependent on producers overseas.

    Recent Product Developments: Long service life, low maintenance cost, 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.
    • 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.

    Recent Market JVs and Acquisitions: Some companies in the battery market are performing mergers & acquisitions to quickly gain the leading position and tap growing opportunities in this rapidly expanding market. For instance.

    • C&D Technologies, Inc. acquired Trojan Battery Company, LLC in 2018. This acquisition provided the former with marine capabilities and the combination created a powerful new leader in the energy storage and transmission industry.

    Covid-19 Impact

    The sudden emergence of the pandemic in 2020 dampened the market demand. As a result, there was an enormous decline in the demand for batteries across industries. Marine battery, a sizeable market, could not escape from such trends and witnessed a colossal decline (-10%+ in 2020) amid the pandemic. However, the market rebounded with a healthy growth of 7.6% YoY in the year 2021 with the revival of consumer confidence. Furthermore, the urgent need to electrify all types of boats and marine transport is creating ample opportunities for both lead-acid and lithium-ion batteries.
