While nickel-based batteries are not new to the market, it is only recently that they have started gaining much popularity due to their higher capacity. There are two main types of nickel-based batteries - nickel cadmium and nickel metal hydride batteries. While NiMH batteries are considered to be safer than NiCd batteries, the fact remains that both these nickel-based batteries are finding favor with automobile manufacturers as well as manufacturers of consumer electronics.

NiMH are being used in many high tech devices these days and have a longer lasting capacity as compared to NiCd batteries. Finding popularity in computers and medical equipments, NiMH batteries are now being used successfully in many electric vehicles. However, the high cost of NiMH batteries remains a challenge for the future growth of this segment.

Meanwhile, NiCd batteries offer the advantage of being rechargeable and hence are being used successfully in portable electronic devices as well as mobile phones. Many toys and power tools also make use of NiCd batteries. NiCd batteries do not make up a huge portion of the nickel-based battery market and account for only about 12% of the entire nickel-based battery market. We estimate that the nickel-based battery market will be worth over $7.5 billion by the end of 2017.
