A rechargeable battery is a type of battery which can be recharged time and again by putting its terminals on a DC current, after the battery power drainage. Rechargeable batteries provide multiple usages from its cell and a well long-term investment in terms of money spent for devices, which can be recharged. The rechargeable batteries are mostly a more reliable, ecological and sustainable replacement of non-rechargeable batteries. The non-rechargeable batteries produce current via a chemical reaction and in which a reactive anode of the battery is used and get exhausted. However, in the rechargeable batteries, anode also get exhausted but at a comparatively slower rate, which allows multiple charges and discharges. Rechargeable batteries can be used same as conventional ones but should be placed in a charger after the discharge, and if built-in batteries are being used then an AC/DC adapter should be connected.
Rechargeable batteries have various advantages such as durability and long term cost benefit, however, they do also have few disadvantages. As, these batteries are designed on the basis of different voltage, according to their applications, but it will not provide proper energy to the device in a single time charge. Nickel cadmium and nickel-metal hydride are some types of batteries, which can improve a battery space effect when the batteries are discharged partially, and then decreases the performance of battery life and subsequent charges. Over charging can result in ignition or explosion of rechargeable batteries.
Rechargeable batteries have several applications such as consumer devices, automobiles such as automobile starters, light vehicles (such as golf carts, motorized wheelchairs, electric forklifts and electric bicycles), portable consumer devices, tools, and uninterruptible power supplies. There are some evolving applications in electric vehicles and hybrid internal combustion-battery, which drive the technology and provide less weight, cost, increase lifetime and compact size. The product is available in individual units or is in-built with the end use device. The most commonly used rechargeable batteries in the market are lithium-ion (LiOn), nickel-cadmium and (NiCad) nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) batteries were also once very prevalent.
Rechargeable Batteries Industry: Market Dynamics
Increasing demand for consumer devices and portable devices such as music players, digital cameras, camera phones, and portable computing devices etc., growing demand for automobile and bio-based vehicles, etc. are driving the market for rechargeable batteries. Additionally, increasing awareness for battery-enabled consumer devices, increasing per capita income, continuous industrialization efforts and high-performance batteries are some factors which are rising the rechargeable batteries market. However, the high cost and heap substitutes of Rechargeable Batteries are restraining the market growth of this industry. Increasing manufacturing of bio-based rechargeable batteries is the trend of the industry.
Rechargeable Batteries Market: Regional Outlook
Increasing usage and manufacturing of consumer devices such as smart phones, digital camera, speakers, laptops, notepads, etc. in China, Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow at the rapid growth rate and hold comparatively large market share over the forecast period. The above-mentioned factors are also responsible for driving the demand for rechargeable batteries in some developing regions, which including India, where the growth is estimated to be robust. And, the market growth of Latin America and The Middle East and Africa is anticipated to grow but at a slow rate of growth. However, at present, Europe holds the leading position in terms of value market share of rechargeable batteries market, followed by the United States, but projected to grow at a stagnant rate of growth. As, the US and Europe are comparatively mature markets, and therefore they are predicted to grow moderately with stagnant growth rate.
