This report covers the global battery industry, where batteries are defined as devices that contain an electric cell (or a series thereof) that stores energy which can be converted into electrical power. Excluded from this report are battery chargers, booster cables (jumper cables), and other ancillary equipment used with batteries.

For any given historical year, US dollar amounts are obtained from values expressed in the applicable local currency. These local currency values are converted to US dollars at the average annual exchange rate for that year. For forecast years, the US dollar amounts assume the same annual exchange rate as that prevailing in 2021.

Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading companies, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
