Global battery demand will grow 6.9 percent annually through 2010, led by China, India, Indonesia, South Korea, Poland, Brazil and Russia. Industrialized world markets will grow more slowly. Non-lead-acid secondary batteries will outpace primary and lead-acid secondary types. The consumer segment will lead gains by market.
This study analyzes the $52.6 billion world battery industry. It presents historical demand data for 1995, 2000 and 2005 and forecasts to 2010 and 2015 by battery product (e.g., alkaline, zinc-carbon/zinc-chloride, lithium, lead-acid, nickel-based); by market (e.g., consumer, automotive, industrial), by world region and for 31 major countries.
The study also considers market environment factors, evaluates company market share and profiles 39 major players including Matsushita Electric Industrial, SANYO Electric, Johnson Controls, Exide Technologies, Duracell, Energizer Holdings, and Toshiba.
