VRLA Battery Market Size

VRLA Battery Market size valued at USD 19.8 billion in 2022 and is projected to expand a t more than 3% CAGR from 2023 to 2032.

VRLA Battery Market

The surging number of data centers worldwide is expected to consolidate the demand for VRLA (Valve Regulated Lead Acid) batteries. The robust developments in data centers owing to strict laws for data security are offering lucrative business prospects for the industry players. With the rising expenditure on data center power backups for operating during outages, VRLA batteries are gaining significant momentum. These battery technologies offer numerous benefits in data center infrastructures, including cost-competitive value proposition allowing consumers access to low-maintenance alternatives to conventional VLA battery units. Moreover, the ongoing developments for the integration of VRLA units in uninterrupted power supply (UPS) will spur business growth.

VRLA Battery Market Trends

Rapid penetration of lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries could restrain the industry outlook. Li-ion batteries are gaining significant traction, particularly in the automotive sector, as they offer a wide range of benefits of lead-acid batteries, such as compact size and longer lifecycle. Battery recharge time is a critical parameter in data center applications, increasing the adoption of UPS-integrated Li-ion batteries that can be fully charged in just two hours, whereas lead-acid units take up to 24 hours to recharge. Furthermore, Li-ion UPS systems at peak capacity allows data centers to reduce energy losses.

VRLA Battery Market Analysis

VRLA Battery Market Share By Application

VRLA battery market valuation from the SLI applications is anticipated to reach over USD 18 billion by 2032. VRLA is widely used in Starting, Light, and Ignition (SLI) batteries to ensure safety, reliability, durability, and longer battery life. SLI batteries are required to support faster charging, high-cranking power, and self-charging capacities. The growing production of private and commercial vehicles along with the surging sales of two-wheelers will spur the deployment of SLI systems. Additionally, the increasing consumer demand for advanced automobile features is accelerating the adoption of start-stop technologies, complementing the product penetration. In addition, the advent of electric locomotives worldwide is slated to fuel the demand for VRLA SLI batteries.

VRLA battery market from the GEL technology is poised to record 3.3% gains between 2023 and 2032. GEL is a popular VRLA battery technology which offers various advantages, including higher resistance, lower risk of spillage, and reduced electrolyte evaporation. Sealed gel batteries are extensively used in the oil & gas sector due to their robust deep-cycle performance. Since these batteries prevent leaks, are maintenance-free and non-hazardous whilst allowing easy transportation, a large number of oil and gas companies are switching to gel VRLA batteries. The rising number of offshore exploration activities is expected to further propel the adoption of these batteries owing to their ability to withstand harsh environmental conditions.

VRLA Battery Market Size By Region

Asia Pacific VRLA battery market is predicted to observe nearly 3.4% growth rate through 2032 driven by the presence of robust automotive sector in the region. APAC countries such as China and India are ramping up automobile production to cater to the growing consumer demand for next-generation mobility. This scenario has prompted the large-scale adoption of power backup solutions. Furthermore, the significant growth of the electric fleet across these countries will offer lucrative scope for product penetration due to the growing spending on repair and maintenance. The rising number of public efforts to establish a strong battery charging infrastructure will also positively influence the industry expansion.
