Global Automotive Battery Technology Market Overview and Forecast to 2036 -

August 30, 2021 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 30, 2021--

The “Automotive Battery Technologies - Global Sector Overview and Forecast to 2036 (Q2 2021 Update)” report has been added to’s offering.

Not so long ago, the automotive industry was protecting an old technology yet nowadays it has embraced the need for hybrids and the use of advanced battery technology. Automotive Batteries are by and large divided into two: Starter Batteries and Advanced Automotive Batteries.

Automotive lead-acid batteries are commonly referred to as SLI (Starting, Lighting, Ignition) batteries which are 12V and rechargeable. These batteries supply power to the starter and ignition system to start the engine and supply power to other components within the vehicle. An advanced Automotive Battery (NiNH or Lithium-Ion) is one which is fitted to newly-assembled Electric, PHEV and Hybrid passenger car.


Macro economic, political and environmental events such oil dependency, new competition and increasing carbon emissions have all contributed towards the new move to electrification of transportation. Yet some industry observers argue that the emerging Electric Vehicle (EV) and Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) markets could flatten out due to unproven technology.

They reckon that these markets will be initially bolstered by heavy subsidies to automakers, battery makers and consumers but that sustained growth will depend on yet-to-be-proven battery technology as well as on supporting government policies. Meanwhile, the stubbornly high cost of battery packs remains a hurdle for battery producers.
