Batteries

As Quoted In The Economist

US demand for primary and secondary batteries will grow 4.3 percent annually through 2011. Growth will be driven by strong demand for battery-powered products and motor vehicles, and by an ongoing shift toward more expensive, better-performing batteries. Primary batteries will outpace secondary/rechargeable types, led by primary lithium batteries.

This study analyzes the $12.1 billion US batteries industry. It presents historical demand data (1996, 2001 and 2006) and forecasts to 2011 and 2016 by battery type (e.g., alkaline, primary lithium, zinc-air, silver oxide, lead-acid, rechargeable lithium, nickel-metal hydride, nickel-cadmium, rechargeable alkaline); and by market (e.g., consumer, industrial, government, motor vehicle, portable devices, motive power, backup power).

The study also considers market environment factors, reviews technology, details industry structure and market share, and profiles 37 major producers including Johnson Controls, Duracell, Exide, and Energizer Holdings.
