The Japan Battery Market Size is expected to reach USD 27.64 billion by 2032, at a CAGR of 9.37% during the forecast period 2022 to 2032. The market is likely to be driven by increased adoption of electric vehicles and demand for consumer electronics. Furthermore, the widespread usage of UPS systems for constant power supply in the healthcare, chemical, and oil & gas sectors is likely to drive the Japan battery market growth throughout the forecast period.


Market Overview

The Japanese battery market is predicted to grow for both automotive and stationary applications. Currently, the demand for automotive batteries is rapidly rising in tandem with the growth of the electric vehicle (EV) market. With increasing global rivalry in the design and manufacture of next-generation rechargeable batteries, including all-solid-state batteries, Japan is also encouraging research and development by undertaking industry-academia-government cooperation to maintain its global dominance in research and development, which is projected to increase Japan's battery market. As a result, Japan adopted an aggressive strategy for investing in the research and development of all-solid-state battery technologies. Although all-solid-state batteries continue experiencing shortcomings, but demand for liquid lithium-ion batteries (liquid LiBs) is expected to maintain its dominance in the Japanese battery market.


Rising technical progress toward leading internationally in the development and commercialization of next-generation batteries, notably all-solid-state batteries, and rapidly acquiring the next-generation battery market are some of the drivers projected to drive the Japanese battery market. Furthermore, increasing awareness concerning greenhouse gas emissions, increased demand from domestic consumers, supporting recycling and reusing, extending the production of green electricity, and lowering the burden of electricity costs are expected to drive product demand in the Japanese battery market.


With their technological advantage, Japanese businesses dominated the early market, however as the market developed, Japanese manufacturers lost the marketplace to Chinese and Korean competitors. Furthermore, Japan continues to decline in efficiency in battery cells, and as a result, there is a possibility of growing reliance on neighboring nations. As a result, Japan must uphold and improve all aspects of the supply chain, encompassing the raw material availability and production facilities for materials and cells. However, increased government programs, rising awareness among local manufacturing companies, expanding adoption of electric vehicles (EV) across the nation, and combined an increasing emphasis on the effects of climate change, are likely to boost the demand for the Japan battery market.

Market Segment 

  • In 2022, the secondary battery segment is witnessing a higher growth rate over the forecast period. 

Based on the battery type, the Japan Battery Market is segmented into primary and secondary. Among these, the secondary battery segment is witnessing a higher growth rate over the forecast period. Lithium-ion, lead-acid, and alkaline storage batteries are among the secondary batteries frequently used in Japan. Secondary batteries, on average, have a low capacity and beginning voltage, a fast-self-discharge rate, and varied recharge life ratings. Furthermore, considering that individual batteries can be more expensive, these batteries are cost-effective in the long run. The lithium-ion battery is the most widely used secondary battery in Japan. It charges rapidly and has a longer battery life than the others in its category. Furthermore, expanding electric vehicle ownership throughout the nation, along with an increasing emphasis on sustainability, is anticipated to provide a favorable business environment for secondary battery producers.


  • In 2022, the industrial batteries segment accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 37.8% over the forecast period.

On the basis of application, the Japan Battery Market is segmented into automotive batteries, industrial batteries, and portable batteries. Among these, the industrial batteries segment is dominating the market with the largest revenue share of 37.8% over the forecast period. This growth can be attributable to the rising demand for cost-effective electricity backup and energy storage facilities in a variety of industries, including power production, chemical manufacture, maritime, recreational equipment, and agricultural equipment and machinery. The expansion of the Japanese battery market is anticipated to be boosted by the widespread application of small-sized lithium-ion batteries in lightweight electronics and other consumer goods.
