Lead acid battery is a type of secondary energy storage battery where chemical energy is converted into electrical energy and vice versa.The conversion of electrical energy to chemical energy is termed as charging of a battery, while conversion of chemical energy to electrical energy is termed as discharging of a battery.

Lead acid battery consists of a lead-dioxide cathode, sulfuric acid solution electrolyte, and sponge metallic lead anode.Lead acid batteries are less expensive, robust, and tolerant to overcharging.

They also have low internal impedance, indefinite shelf life, and can deliver high currents.

Flooded lead acid batteries are the commonly utilized batteries.They are widely employed in the automotive sector.

They have the least cost per ampere hour vis-à-vis other lead acid batteries.Flooded batteries are wet cells.

AGM lead acid batteries employ an absorbed glass matt process, wherein highly porous and fine microfiber glass separators engross the electrolyte, thereby increasing the efficiency by dropping internal resistance.This, in turn, increases the capacity.

AGM sealed lead acid batteries are tolerant to a wide variety of temperature. They are less expensive than gel sealed lead acid batteries. Li-ion is expanding at a rapid pace in the lead acid market; however, demand for lead acid batteries is still rising due to their low cost and high performance. The trend of using stationary batteries for power backup and deep-cycle batteries for wheeled mobility such as golf cars, wheelchairs, and scissor lifts has been rising. This is driving the lead acid battery market.

In terms of product type, the flooded segment accounted for more than 60% share of the market in 2017.Market share of the segment is likely to rise significantly by the end of the forecast period owing to high demand from automotive and motorcycles segments.

In terms of application, the automotive segment holds the major share of the lead acid battery market.It is followed by the motorcycle segment.

This trend is likely to continue throughout the forecast period. Lead acid batteries are primarily employed for starting, lighting, and ignition purposes in automotive and motorcycles.

Asia Pacific held significant share of the market in 2016 in terms of value and volume.The region is expected to continue its dominance throughout the forecast period.

The market in Europe and North America is likely to expand at a significant pace in the near future.
