Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

Aluminum-air Battery Market size is estimated to surpass USD 15 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 9% during the forecast period i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of aluminum-air battery was over USD 5.7 Billion. The market's expansion can be ascribed to the quick improvements in battery technology as well as the expanding uses of these batteries in military electronics, which are supported by their high energy density. For instance; with USD 877 billion allocated to the military in 2022, the United States topped the list of nations with the largest military spending. With an estimated 292 billion dollars spent on the military, China ranked second in the world, after Russia in third place. This increasing spending on the military will also support increased demand for these batteries from military & defense sector. Aluminum-air batteries employ an aluminum anode and the oxygen in the air to generate power. In the upcoming years, it's also anticipated that the adoption of these batteries will increase due to increased research and development into making them rechargeable by recycling the hydrated aluminum oxide that serves as a power source.

In an electrolyte solution, aluminum serves as the anode while airborne oxygen serves as the cathode in the aluminum-air battery. Power is produced by the reaction of aluminum with ambient oxygen in aluminum-air batteries, also known as Al-air batteries. Out of all the batteries, they possess one of the greatest energy density. But an electric vehicle powered by aluminum batteries could be able to go up to eight times farther between charges than one that uses lithium-ion batteries, all while weighing a lot less overall. Both this and the ecosystem will benefit from this. These are anticipated to play a significant role in driving the growth of the aluminum-air battery market over the projected timeframe.
