Global Lead Acid Battery Market Size to Reach USD 71.73 Billion in 2032 | Emergen Research


Rising demand for Uninterrupted Power System (UPS) systems, particularly in data centers and other critical infrastructure is another key factor driving revenue growth of the market

Vancouver, Nov. 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global lead acid battery market, valued at USD 47.08 billion in 2022, is set to sustain a strong growth trajectory with a projected revenue compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.3% during the forecast period. Key factors propelling this expansion include the rising demand for lead acid batteries, technological advancements, and a thriving telecom sector.

Lead acid batteries, known for their reliability and cost-effectiveness, find extensive use in applications such as telecommunications, data centers, healthcare facilities, and emergency lighting systems. Notably, these batteries enjoy a remarkable recycling rate, with 99% of them being recycled in the U.S. Each year, over 100 million lead-acid batteries are sold in the U.S., mainly as starter batteries for vehicles, further contributing to their sustainability.


One major driver of market growth is the increasing need for Uninterrupted Power System (UPS) systems, especially in data centers and critical infrastructure. Lead acid batteries are favored for their capacity to deliver reliable backup power. Additionally, the automotive industry’s demand for energy storage devices is on the rise, thanks to the increased production of commercial vehicles, motorcycles, and passenger cars.

A significant market trend is the growing demand for renewable energy sources, which has a direct impact on the demand for energy storage batteries. As renewable energy is expected to account for over 70% of electricity generation, lead acid batteries play a crucial role in energy generation grids and substations. However, fluctuating raw material prices and the shift towards lithium-ion batteries present potential challenges to market growth.

Product-wise, the Starting, Lighting, and Ignition (SLI) segment dominated the market in 2022. These batteries are essential for powering various applications in conventional combustion engine vehicles, such as cars and trucks. Their use is further expanding in high-power applications, including the automotive industry.

In terms of construction method, the Value Regulated Acid-Battery (VRLA) segment is expected to experience robust growth. This is driven by increasing demand from residential, commercial, and industrial sectors, as well as the growing adoption of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems for grid-scale power storage and renewable energy generation.

The automotive segment is anticipated to hold a substantial share of the market, primarily due to the automotive industry’s demand and applications in sectors like railways. The presence of major automotive players contributes to the segment’s growth.

Within the sales channels, the aftermarket segment is projected to register steady growth. This is attributed to the expanding use of aftermarket products in various applications, including motor vehicles and UPS systems, driven by the need for reliable and cost-effective power storage solutions.

Regionally, the Asia Pacific market secured the largest revenue share in 2022, fueled by the rising adoption of electric vehicles (EVs). The Chinese government’s initiatives to reduce demand-supply gaps have played a vital role in this growth. In North America, the market is expected to experience the fastest revenue growth, thanks to surging demand in the automotive and railway industries.
