This study covers the global battery industry. Demand by product and market are presented in US dollars. Demand totals for each country are also presented in inflation-adjusted constant dollars, with exchange rates benchmarked at 2019 levels.

For each country, product demand is presented for:

  • primary alkaline batteries
  • primary zinc-carbon batteries
  • primary lithium batteries
  • other primary batteries, including zinc-air, silver-oxide, nickel oxyhydroxide, and all other primary batteries
  • secondary lead-acid batteries
  • secondary lithium-ion batteries
  • secondary nickel-based batteries
  • other secondary batteries, such as sodium-nickel chloride, rechargeable alkaline, zinc-air, nickel-hydrogen, sodium-sulfur, silver-zinc, nickel-air, lithium-sulfur, aluminum-air, and zinc bromine

Excluded from the study are battery chargers, booster cables (jumper cables), and other ancillary equipment used with batteries.

Totals for primary and secondary battery demand in each country are segmented into:

  • automotive OEM (including for conventional and hybrid/electric vehicles)
  • automotive aftermarket (including for conventional and hybrid/electric vehicles)
  • consumer OEM
  • consumer replacement
  • other markets (e.g., motive power, UPS systems, telecom backup systems, aerospace and defense, energy storage)

Production data for each country are presented for primary batteries and secondary batteries.
