The global automotive battery box market size was USD 464.9 million in 2020. The market is projected to grow from USD 497.2 million in 2021 to USD 871.6 million in 2028 at a CAGR of 8.4% in the 2021-2028 period. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with the automotive battery box witnessing a negative impact on demand across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a negative growth of -5.6% in 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

An automotive battery box is vital equipment that protects the battery from potential weather/outside elements and battery mishaps. It is primarily made of lightweight material that is corrosion resistant and protects the battery from battery acid leaks, UV exposure, gas, water, and others. The battery enclosure material is heavy-duty and is designed to protect the battery against unwanted liquids. A battery enclosure is important as it protects one of the most vital parts of the RV. There are different types of materials that are used for automotive battery enclosures. Metallic and non-metallic materials are used for battery boxes, in which plastic is mostly used.

Blockades in Battery Supply to Harm Automotive Battery Box Market Growth During COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has heavily impacted the global battery box industry, which has slowed battery supply across the globe. Most of the battery manufacturers are situated in China, thus increasing the dependence on China with the associated risk factors. This factor has further diverted the interest of various stakeholders for regionalization/localization of supply chains in European and American regions for new opportunities in the market. Also, several battery box manufacturers are set to revise their expenditures for the present year to fulfill their targets.

The new Wallace center will be located in GM’s Global Technical Center based in Michigan.


Stringent Lead Pollution Norms to Restrain Market Growth

One of the key market restraints for this market is the stringent lead pollution norms in electric vehicles. Also, the large import taxes on global EV battery systems and fluctuating raw materials prices are expected to hinder the market pace. Furthermore, the failure of batteries, owing to excess heating and availability of underdeveloped support infrastructure for EVs and batteries are other factors hampering the market growth.


By Material Analysis

Non-Metallic Segment is Likely to Observe Significant Growth Due to its Highest Adoption Rate

Based on material, the automotive battery box market is bifurcated into metallic and non-metallic. The non-metallic segment is projected to observe considerable growth during the forecast period. There is continuous large-scale adoption of non-metallic materials, such as plastics, fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP), and many others, for automotive battery housing. Liquid batteries are usually covered by non-metallic housing as acid doesn’t harm plastic material.

The metallic segment is expected to grow steadily during the forecast period. Players, including Hitachi Metals, Selectrify, Voestalpine, and others manufacture metallic enclosures for automotive batteries. Steel, mild steel, and aluminum are majorly used materials to manufacture metallic enclosures for battery boxes.
