Automotive Lead Acid Battery Revenue Analysis 2016-2020 Vs Outlook for 2021-2031

According to Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, from 2016 to 2020, the global market for automotive lead acid batteries has grown at a CAGR of 4%. Growth is largely attributed to rising demand for enhanced flood batteries (EFB) amid rising electrification of vehicles.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) estimates that worldwide EV sales surpassed the 10 million mark in 2020. These vehicles require high-end batteries to offer enhanced cycling capability and improved charge acceptance. Sales temporarily contracted in the first half of 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic impacted production of conventional vehicles. However, rising EV popularity sustained demand throughout the tumultuous year.

Based on the aforementioned trends, Fact.MR expects the global market for automotive lead acid batteries to expand at a CAGR of 5.03% from 2021 to 2031, representing a 1.6x increase.

How are Depleting Fossil Fuel Reserves Spurring Demand for Lead Acid Batteries?

A growing market for low emission or zero-emission batteries is driven by the use of hybrids and electric vehicles to increase air quality as well as tackling environmental issues such as carbon emissions is expanding demand for lead-acid batteries. 

Due to the rapid depletion of fossil fuels, lead acid batteries are becoming more widely used. Government regulations imposed on greenhouse gas emissions from cars have prohibited the sale of vehicles that emit more pollutants. This is the primary factor driving the market for automotive lead acid batteries.

How are Structural and Functional Advantages Widening Sales?

Compared to other types of batteries, lead-acid batteries are more commonly used in automotive applications due to their considerable advantages, such as their availability in different sizes, shapes, zero maintenance, increased reliability, low cost, and longest life cycle. Advances in technology have enabled lead acid batteries to be installed with features like automatic water refilling or centrally-located plugs that have slowly decreased their maintenance needs.

They are easy to recycle and therefore possess increased demand on the market. The eco-friendly batteries extended their application to stationary areas such as Smart Grid frequency regulation types of setups and UPS systems (uninterruptible power systems). As energy storage requirements continue to rise, automotive lead acid batteries are meeting those demands in the market.
