In the last 150 years, lead acid batteries have been the dominant technology in the SLI battery industry. However, in recent years, the increasing utilization of lithium-ion batteries, driven by their numerous advantages over lead acid batteries, has prompted battery developers to invest in research and development (R&D) to create lithium-ion SLI batteries. This development poses a potential threat to the lead acid battery industry. However, lithium-ion batteries have not yet been widely adopted for SLI applications, leading VRLA technologies such as AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) and GEL batteries to remain highly preferred in recent times across the American countries.

COVID-19 Impact

The global economy has faced severe repercussions from the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic since late 2019. Originating in China, the virus quickly spread worldwide, causing significant disruptions to the supply chains of various industries. Among the most affected sectors was the automotive industry, as the pandemic led to a substantial decline in global demand for new vehicles. Additionally, there was a notable decrease in the prices of raw materials like lead due to overstocking and limited demand.

However, the SLI battery segment experienced an increased demand from the transportation industry, driven by the heightened logistics requirements of utilities and hospitals. Moreover, the America SLI battery market has shown consistent growth since early 2021 as lockdown measures were gradually lifted across the globe. The introduction of vaccines by several pharmaceutical companies has further contributed to improving business conditions. Furthermore, the America SLI battery industry is expected to witness significant growth in the coming years as the demand for automobiles.
