Batteries

US demand for primary and secondary batteries will reach $16.8 billion in 2012. Growth will be supported by healthy demand for battery-driven electronics and a shift toward higher-priced, better-performing batteries. In the secondary battery segment, the rapidly growing market for hybrid vehicles will boost demand for Ni-MH and LiIon batteries.

This study analyzes the $14.9 billion US battery industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1997, 2002 and 2007, and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by battery type (e.g., alkaline, lithium, zinc-air, lead-acid, nickel-metal hydride, nickel-cadmium) and market (e.g., consumer, industrial, motor vehicle, portable device, motive power, backup power, government).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 36 industry players, including Johnson Controls, Exide Technologies and Energizer.
