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

SLI Battery Market size is estimated to reach ~USD 46 Billion by the end of 2035 by growing at a CAGR of ~3% over the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. In addition to this, in the year 2022, the market size of SLI battery was ~USD 34 Billion. The growth of the market can be attributed to the rising constructional activities, which in turn increases the demand for cranes and other industrial machinery. Demand for mobile cranes in the 20-60 tonne range, as well as all-terrain ones in the 80-100 tonne range, is likely to rise in India. For the year 2021, demand was expected to be around 50-60 units for the 20-60 tonnes category and nearly 30-35 units for the 80-100 tons category.

In addition to these, factors that are believed to fuel the growth of SLI battery market include the rise in demand for these batteries in the automotive sector and other industrial and commercial applications. Smart technologies, such as start-stop systems in the vehicle are increasing the demand for more advanced batteries. Moreover, developing countries continue to grow and modernize, and the demand for vehicles and other equipment that require SLI batteries are increasing. On the other hand, the market growth is attributed to the replacement demand for these batteries, since these batteries have a relatively short lifespan and need to be replaced every few years.

Global SLI Battery Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Growing Number of Automobiles – An SLI battery powers the vehicle's three most vital features: the starter motor, illumination, and ignition system. Over 67 million cars were sold globally in 2021, with over 66 million sold in 2022. Furthermore, by the end of 2023, car sales are predicted to reach around 70 million.
  • Rise in the Number of Aircrafts– During preflight, these batteries are used to power up the electrical system and start the Auxiliary Power Unit or the engines of the aircraft. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, the global aircraft fleet had 25,578 planes in service in 2022. It is also predicted to reach over 38,000 by 2032.
  • Higher Production of Lead– Increased production of lead is likely to continue the supply of raw materials for manufacturing SIL batteries. Following an 8% fall in CY 2020 owing to the pandemic, the output of lead-mined metal (metal in concentrate) increased by about 6% in CY 2021 bringing the total to around 5 Mt across the globe.
  • Rising Constructional Activities– Construction sites need various machinery and even security systems. The SIL batteries are used to power both machinery and the system. A report from the US Census Bureau and the US Department of Housing and Urban Development states that 1,524,000 building permits were issued as of February 2023, with 1,45,000 house constructions beginning and 1,557,000 house constructions completed.
  • Higher Adoption of Solar Panels –SIL batteries are a good choice for small-scale solar panels systems or backup power application where cost and simplicity are the important factor. In the Net Zero Emissions by 2050 Scenario, the number of households dependent on solar PV climbs from 25 million now to more than 100 million by 2030 around the world. Every year beginning in 2022, at least 190 GW is expected to be deployed, and this figure will continue to rise owing to greater PV competitiveness and a growing need for sustainable energy sources.


  • Increasing adoption of electric vehicles – The automotive industry is undergoing significant technological changes, such as transitioning towards electric and hybrid models of vehicles. SLI batteries are not suitable for hybrid vehicles or EVs as they are unable to provide enough current and are required for sustained driving. Therefore, it compromises its range and performance.
  • High production of the battery is leading to quality degradation of the battery
  • The cost of raw material is high

Global SLI Battery Market Segmentation

The global SLI battery market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by end user into automotive, oil & gas, utilities, construction, marine, and others. Out of the six end users of SLI battery, the automotive segment is estimated to gain the largest market share of about ~38% in the year 2035. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the rising demand for automobiles. In 2021, the world manufactured 79.1 million motor vehicles. When compared to the previous year, this figure represents a 3 percent gain. In 2020, China, Japan, and Germany were the top three makers of automobiles and commercial vehicles. In addition to this, global commercial vehicle manufacturing increased to roughly 23 million units in 2021, slightly recovering from the three-million-unit dip seen in 2020. SLI battery is an important part of a vehicle’s electrical system, as it provides the necessary power to start the engines and operate the electrical systems. However, SLI batteries are not used in electric vehicles, as these batteries are relatively heavy and would add unwanted weight to an EV, thus impacting its performance and range.

The global SLI battery market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into portable, and stationary. Amongst these two segments, the portable segment is expected to garner a significant share of around ~46% in the year 2035. The growth of the segment is attributed to rising use of mobile phones and other small electrical devices. Portable SLI battery are used to kick-start the electrical devices. Such as radios, portable light, and cell phones in remote locations where there is no access to mains electricity. Moreover, they are also used as a source of power backup during emergencies. In India, there are nearly 25 million houses in the rural region that are living with the power. The highest number of non-electrified villages are around 1044, which lie in the Uttar Pradesh part of India.

Global Economic Impact

Request Insights
Despite Inflation & Fearing Recession, Businesses Across the Globe Expected to Do Better in 2023:

In 2023, market players might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain.
Controlling Inflation has become the first priority for global economies from last quarter of 2022 and to be followed in 2023. With skewed economic situations, rise in interest rate by governments to control spending and inflation, spiked oil and gas prices, high inflation, geo-political issues including U.S. & China trade war, Russia-Ukraine conflict to intensify the global economic issues.
The interest rates in the U.S. may be less sensitive in 2023 as compared to 2022; sigh of relief for businesses. Positive business sentiments, healthy business balance sheets, growth in construction spending (private construction value in 2022 stood at $1,429.2 billion, 11.7 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $1,279.5 billion spent in 2021, Residential construction in 2022 was $899.1 billion, up by 13.3 percent (±2.1 percent) from $793.7 billion in 2021, non-residential construction touched $530.1 billion, 9.1 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $485.8 billion in 2021.) showcases minimal impact of recession in the country.
Similarly, spiked spending in the European and major Asia economics including, India, China & Japan to showcase less impact on the global demand.
