A steady demand for automobiles has created a positive business scenario for lead acid battery market demand. The lead acid battery units account for a dominant market share across conventional automobiles, vehicles with start-stop functionality and micro hybrid systems, thereby creating significant market opportunities for high penetration of lead acid battery units. Introduction of advanced vehicle technologies along with growing consumer inclination toward power sports have created a cyclical demand for lead acid battery with superior cranking power.

Several regions, most notably Europe & North America undergo harsh winter conditions, thereby increasing the demand for power delivery systems with high cranking performance. Reliable operation and low costs are some of the key underlying factors favoring the deployment of lead acid battery over other available counterparts. In addition, the shifting transition toward the adoption of start-stop technology by automotive manufacturers, to conform with fuel efficiency standards will further augment the market share for SLI application.

Demand for high energy density driving the installation of VRLA batteries

Valve Regulated Lead Acid battery (VRLA) industry has witnessed significant growth on account of their high-power density and ease of installation. The Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) lead acid batteries are the recent advancements in VRLA battery technology driven by the dynamic customer requirements. A VRLA based lead acid battery deploys a fiberglass as a separator which holds the electrolyte in place instead of using a gel and are spill-proof, while offering considerable resistance to vibration and impact.

Consequently, VRLA battery deployment is witnessing substantial growth when compared to traditional flooded batteries owing to their ability of high & reliable power delivery with high rate of discharge. Moreover, minimal maintenance costs and large power reserves are some of the eminent features driving the lead acid battery market share across multiple industries including telecommunications, and automotive amongst others.

Increasing battery replacement rates boosting the aftermarket industry growth

The increasing replacement rates for battery units at end of life phase have provided significant market opportunities to the battery suppliers operating across the industry landscape. The aftermarket battery industry is a key contributor to the overall sales of lead acid battery units in comparison with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).

The industry trends vary substantially across different application areas. For instance, batteries deployed across the automobile sector are dominated by aftermarket sales distribution channel and offer lucrative prospects to vendors and authorized automotive & spare parts dealers.

An SLI battery unit has a usual lifespan of 5-7 years, after which it needs to be swapped. However, harsh urban driving conditions & profiles along with ongoing integration of advanced vehicles platforms have fueled the replacement rates of conventional battery units. This has enabled the manufacturers to capitalize on remunerative opportunities and enhance their market share. In addition, the existence of robust supply chains has further enhanced the access to aftermarket battery units which in turn will propel the unit adoption of lead acid battery.
