The global consumer battery market size was valued at USD 25.43 billion in 2023. The market is projected to grow from USD 27.19 billion in 2024 to USD 44.13 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.24% during the forecast period.

Consumer battery powers various consumer products such as laptops, tablets, phones, cameras, and other tools. These batteries may have multiple chemistries such as lithium-ion, alkaline, zinc-carbon, nickel-cadmium, and nickel-metal-hydride. Furthermore, they can be rechargeable or disposable, based on their chemistry and technology. Consumer batteries differ from industrial batteries in terms of ruggedness and power outputs.

People were confined to their homes during lockdowns due to the spread of coronavirus. There was a massive adoption of work-from-home culture and remote schools and colleges. This led to an increased usage of laptops and mobile phones during the period. Due to a crunch in the available labor force for residential services, such as electricians, plumbers, and carpenters, Do-It-Yourself (DIY) projects among consumers gained attraction. This led to an increased adoption of battery-powered power tools. The high availability of these tools through online retail platforms further fueled their adoption. These factors propelled the demand for consumer batteries during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Consumer Battery Market Growth Factors

Growing Demand for Portable Electronics Items is Boosting the Consumer Battery Market

The cumulative demand for portable electronics, such as laptops, tablets, smartphones, and wearable devices, is a key factor driving the growth of the portable electronics market. In addition, these devices deliver portability, convenience, and connectivity, which makes them an essential part of daily life for several consumers.

In addition, technological advancements have resulted in the development of more sophisticated and user-friendly devices, further expanding portable electronic devices. Many manufacturing players focus on recyclable products to save ecosystems and wildlife. This factor greatly impacts consumer batteries as recycling solutions will help them create awareness, and hence, sales will go up due to the high demand.

For instance, in November 2022, Audi and Redwood launched a consumer battery recycling program in dealerships across the U.S. This recycling program was created to make consumer device and rechargeable battery recycling frictionless, allowing everyone to recycle and upsurge the sustainability of all products sensibly.

Increasing Demand for Household Electronic Devices to Propel Consumer Battery Demand

The income of the world’s population is rising, allowing people to spend more on housing and equip their homes with upcoming technological goods. Most electronic devices used in household and personal activities, such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, watches, and remotes, are rechargeable. They intend to hold energy for a longer duration to keep the product running longer.

Introducing innovative household products in the market is likely to boost product consumption. Latest technological advancements, such as the introduction of smartwatches, power banks, grooming products, smartphones, and laptops, use secondary batteries that are rechargeable. Other products, such as remote-controlled devices, work on primary batteries. All these household devices use consumer batteries. Thus, increase in the sales of these devices leads to an increase in market growth.

During the pandemic, more and more people settled into their routines and looked to automate their home appliances to make their homes smart. For a pure battery-powered application, long battery life is essential. Therefore, strong growth of the market is projected in the forthcoming years.


Increasing Awareness among People about Harmful Environmental Effects of Improper Recycling Might Hinder Market Growth

Most batteries on the market are harmful to the environment, which is expected to limit the market's growth over the projected period. Batteries are hazardous if they are not disposed of or recycled correctly. Today, most of the batteries end up in landfills, which can cause explosions or prolong land damage. Also, the chemical may leak and pollute the soil for an extended period.

According to Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) research conducted in the Australian sub-continent, only 2% of the country’s 3,300 tonnes of Li-ion battery waste is recycled. Battery recycling is not in trend, and people are unaware of this. Hence, it has an adverse effect on the environment.

The growing global momentum to eliminate hazardous compounds from batteries, such as mercury, cadmium, and lead, is ongoing. Certain regions, such as Europe, have already passed guidelines that restrict the use of hazardous components, such as cadmium and lead, in batteries based on expanding awareness of the detrimental effects of batteries.

Consumer Battery Market Segmentation Analysis

By Type Analysis

Primary Battery Segment to Hold Significant Consumer Battery Market Share Owing to High Adoption

Based on type, the market is segmented into primary and secondary. The primary segment is the dominant segment in the market as at present, most small home equipment uses non-rechargeable batteries as a source of energy.

During the forecast period, the secondary segment is expected to grow its market presence with the lowering prices of lithium, which is generally used in rechargeable batteries. Also, with the latest technological advancement, the usage of cordless devices, which run on rechargeable battery is anticipated to grow over the forecast period.

By Battery Chemistry Analysis

Alkaline Battery Segment to Dominate the Market Due to Low Cost

Based on battery chemistry, the market is segmented into alkaline battery, zinc-carbon battery, lithium-ion battery, nickel cadmium battery, nickel metal hydride, and others.

The alkaline battery segment is dominant in the market due to its high adoption in many household items, such as MP3 players, remotes, digital cameras, toys, flashlights, and radios. The existence of these devices will have equal importance in day-to-day life during the projection period.

Since the introduction of Li-ion batteries in the 1990s, there has been a reduction in their price up to 97% from the time when they were first commercially introduced, according to a research conducted by MIT researchers. The cost of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries used for phones and laptops has fallen dramatically over the last three decades. It has been a significant driver of the rapid growth of the lithium-ion battery segment.

By Application Analysis
