Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2035

Lead Acid Battery Market size is projected to cross USD 90 Billion by the end of 2035, witnessing around 6% CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of lead acid battery was USD 54 Billion in The growth of the market can be attributed to the rising demand for batteries for various applications, including telecommunication, automobiles, construction, and others. Furthermore, they are mainly used for emergency power supply systems, and it is expected to rise the growth of the market. India's EV battery consumption is anticipated to reach around 15 GWh by 2025 and nearly 60 GWh by 2030. By 2030, investments in the cell manufacturing industry are anticipated to surpass USD 9 billion.

In addition to these, factors that are believed to fuel the market growth of lead-acid batteries include the rising demand for lead-acid batteries for power backup at the time of power outages. There will undoubtedly be a higher need for power backups because electrical networks are aging and cannot meet the world's energy needs. In the United States, almost 70% of transmission and distribution lines have already outlived their expected lifespans by more than 50 years. Both the residential and industrial sectors are affected by the shortage of power all across the world.

Lead Acid Battery Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Network of Off-Grid & Stand-Alone Power Systems -  In off-grid applications, lead-acid batteries have been most frequently employed. Moreover, they are also used for off-grid solar storage. By 2030, it is predicted that stand-alone and mini-grid systems would power over 60% of additional electrical access, and renewable energy sources will power approximately half of that access across the globe.

  • Higher Instances of Power Outages - In the event of a power outage, emergency lighting and pumping stations are both powered by lead-acid batteries. On the account of new power supply issues that have emerged on top of existing ones, more than 4% of the global population, or at least 350 million people, endured catastrophic power outages in 2021.

  • Expanding Infrastructure of Data Center - In most data centers, the uninterrupted power supply (UPS) or power failure is powered by a VRLA or valve-regulated lead-acid cell battery. As of January 2021, there were over 8,000 data centers located in 110 distinct countries. The United States, which represents 33% of all data centers, the United Kingdom, which accounts for 5.7%, and China, which accounts for 5.2%, comprise these six countries.

  • Growing Demand for Electronic Items and Battery - Given that consumer electronics were used widely in 2030, it is predicted that by 2030, the demand for batteries would have increased from 185 GWh to more than 2,000 GWh.

  • Rising Production of Lead - Following around 8% decline in CY 2020 owing to the pandemic, the output of lead-mined metal (metal in concentrate) increased by nearly 6% in CY 2021 to reach around 5 Mt. Furthermore, the manufacturing of lead-acid batteries, which are mostly used in motorized vehicles, the storage of energy produced by solar cells and wind turbines, and the creation of backup power supplies account for around 86% of the world's total lead consumption.


  • Availability of Cheaper Alternative – lead acid batteries are a cost-effective technology, however the presence of lithium-ion batteries and aluminum air batteries, that makes them an even cheaper alternative. Moreover, for hybrid applications, a nickel-metal hydride battery is the most efficient. They are used by major OEMs, such as Honda, Toyota, Lexus, and others. Furthermore, nickel cadmium is also a great alternative to lead-acid batteries.
  • Need for Frequent Maintenance to Increase the Life of the Battery
  • Strict Rules and Regulations for Manufacturing of Lead Acid Battery

Lead Acid Battery Industry - Regional Synopsis

APAC Market Statistics

The Asia Pacific lead acid battery market, amongst the market in all the other regions, is projected to hold the largest market share by the end of 2035. The growth of the market can be attributed majorly to the rising power shortage and increasing capacity of off-grid power systems. The intense heatwave in 2023 coincided with the greatest power outage in more than six years. Indians from all across the nation including Jammu and Kashmir to Andhra Pradesh are experiencing power outages that range anywhere from two hours to eight hours or longer. Furthermore, in 2021, China's off-grid renewable energy capacity increased by almost 5% to 906.23 gigawatts. Besides this, the market growth in the region is also attributed to rising in the number of lead acid battery importers. The Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change (MoEFCC) / Central Pollution Control Board has registered 82 importers of lead acid batteries under Rule 5 of the Batteries (Management & Handling) Regulations, 2001.

North American Market Forecast   

The North American lead acid battery market, amongst the market in all the other regions, is also predicted to hold the second largest market share by the end of 2035. The market growth in the region is expected on the account of the rising use of lead-acid batteries for battery backup in case of power outages. Several catastrophic weather events in 2021 put pressure on the electricity grids in the United States. On average, households lost power for seven hours and twenty minutes, with severe weather events such as hurricanes, wildfires, and snowstorms accounting for more than five of those hours, or about seventy-two percent.
