"Actionable Insights to Fuel Your Growth"

Primary Battery Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Alkaline, Lithium, Zinc-Carbon, Others) and Regional Forecast, 2023-2030

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI101392 | Status : Ongoing



Increasing adoption of mobile consumer units coupled with rising usage of conveniently low battery drainage equipment is projected to augment the global primary battery market size. Decreasing prices coupled with a substantial increase in voltage deliverability and shelf life owing to rising research & development activities is expected to propel the market size. A primary battery converts chemical to electrical energy through an oxidation-reduction reaction induced by a medium for ion transfer.

These batteries are also known as dry cells and mainly consists of a cathode and an anode, confined within a mixture of electrolytes to efficiently provide the required output. It is a type of portable non-rechargeable cells that have a long shelf life, low cost, little maintenance, and requires no particular disposal method after usage.

Based on type, the primary battery market can be predominantly divided into alkaline, lithium, zinc-carbon, and others. Alkaline primary batteries have operational capabilities to work over a variety of temperatures and possess high energy density. It uses an alkaline electrolyte usually potassium hydroxide, has long-lasting performance, and are readily used in digital cameras, clocks, remote controls, and other handheld electronic devices.

Lithium primary batteries have very high electrochemical potential and have witnessed to gain momentum over time. These are compact cell packages having low weight, high cell voltage, low self-discharge, very high operating temperature, and extended useful life.

The growing demand for consumer electronics like battery-powered toys, portable media players, smoke alarms, flashlights, watches, and various others is expected to affect positively the global primary battery market. Additionally, rising production of medical devices like hearing aids coupled with increasing defense budgets to mount the development of weapons and missiles will further propel the industry outlook.

Availability of advanced rechargeable batteries having a long useful life and increased voltage output may obstruct the global primary battery market. Secondary batteries have low life cycle cost as it operates for a longer time, and have reversed chemical reaction to reuse it by connecting to an external power source.
