The presence of strict rules regarding battery recycling could restrain the growth of the automotive start-stop battery market in Europe. In recent years, several government bodies across the region have deployed stringent codes and standards associated with lead acid battery (LAB) chemistry. Moreover, concerns regarding lead recycling are restricting product adoption. Even though waste LAB recycling rates in Europe are as high as 95%, these processes are expensive and energy intensive. Smelting waste LABs in a furnace is wasteful and emits large quantities of pollutants.

The EFB battery segment is poised to exhibit 4% growth rate through 2032. EFBs (Enhanced Flooded Batteries) is the upgraded version of flooded batteries that are extensively used in new vehicle models with automatic start-stop systems. These batteries offer a wide variety of benefits such as augmented deep & partial discharge performance, lower emissions, and fewer maintenance requirements. Automobile manufacturers earlier relied on AGM technologies to power start-stop vehicles.

The conventional vehicle segment is expected to record substantial growth during the forecast period, owing to the surging use of start-stop batteries in internal combustion engine (ICE) powered vehicles. Increasing focus on fuel conservation and energy-efficient technologies should boost the addition of start-stop batteries in conventional vehicles in Europe. These batteries can reduce emissions and fuel usage whilst saving on running costs. The availability of limited charging stations for electric vehicles in Europe will support the industry growth.

In terms of end-use, the Europe automotive start-stop battery market revenue from passenger vehicles segment is estimated to reach more than USD 3 billion by 2032, attributed to rising technological advancements by automakers to enhance the energy efficiency and comfort of vehicles will foster the deployment of start-stop battery systems in passenger vehicles. A solid rise in disposable income in EU countries has fueled the sales of passenger cars. According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders (SMMT), passenger car sales in the UK increased by 26.4% to 134,344 units in October 2022.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic caused significant disruptions to the automotive start-stop battery market in Europe. Due to stringent lockdown regulations and factory shutdowns in the early phase of the pandemic, automobile production in Europe reported losses amounting to 4,243,577 vehicles in 2020. The region also observed significant challenges associated with pandemic-induced labor supply shocks, negatively affecting the demand for start-stop batteries in the automotive sector of Europe. However, increasing efforts focusing on climate change and curbing carbon footprint will consolidated industry growth.
