Market Overview

Lead-acid batteries are a type of rechargeable battery that uses lead dioxide as the positive electrode, lead as the negative electrode and sulfuric acid as the electrolyte. These batteries have been widely used for years in various applications due to their reliability, low cost, and ability to deliver high surge currents. The rise of interest in energy-efficient products and services globally can be attributable to market growth. Over the past few years, as an increasing number of cars have become hybrid and electric the requirement for lead-acid batteries has continuously grown. Shortly, it is anticipated that the transportation sector's progress and increasing interest in uses for energy storage will fuel demand among industries. The industry's desire to supply UPS has increased due to increasing demand across several industries, especially the banking sector, petroleum and natural gas, health services, and chemicals. However, if compared to lithium-ion batteries the percentage of lead-acid batteries is higher in recycling and processing than lithium-ion batteries. Lead-acid batteries have mainly two forms: motive and stationary. The equipment being powered by stationary lead-acid batteries requires a backup power source, such as a UPS or an inverter, to deliver the required backup power. Devices like security systems and lights for emergencies use SLA batteries with smaller capacities. Basic lead acid batteries and advanced lead acid batteries are made using the Flooded and Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) methods, among other technologies.
