Disposable batteries (also known as dry-cell batteries) contain electrochemical cells, which store energy in an immobilized electrolyte paste to minimize the need for water. The most popular types of disposable batteries are alkaline and Nickel-Cadmium. The key advantages of disposable batteries have a high energy output, longer shelf life, low cost, and are non-hazardous. These batteries are widely used in small and portable devices including toys, radios, watches, and flashlights. They are usually cheap and have a high energy density.
The global disposable batteries market is projected to grow at a substantial rate during the forecast period. The increased use of disposable batteries in daily use gadgets, long shelf-life, and environment-friendly nature of these batteries are some of the major factors that are expected to drive the global disposable batteries market. Disposable batteries commonly find applications in daily use devices such as wall clock, TV remote, radios, and toys. Thus, the widespread of these gadgets has increased the demand for disposable batteries, globally. Alkaline batteries have a shelf-life of five to ten years than carbon zinc batteries whose shelf life is three to five years. Due to their long shelf-life and environment-friendly nature, end users prefer disposable batteries, which is expected to boost the demand for disposable batteries. However, factors such as the availability of alternative products, including rechargeable batteries, and the increasing cost of raw materials are likely to restrain the global disposable batteries market during the forecast period.
The global disposable batteries market has been segmented based on type and end-use. On the basis of type, the alkaline sub-segment is expected to be the largest sub-segment within the global disposable batteries market. The large market share of this sub-segment can be attributed to its high energy density, which allows the battery to produce the same amount of energy for an extended period. Moreover, these batteries have a long life span compared to other battery types. On the basis of end-use, consumer electronics was the largest segment, owing to the rising use of daily use gadgets, globally.
The global disposable batteries market is expected to grow at ~5.20% CAGR during the forecast period.
The global disposable batteries market is expected to witness a substantial growth rate during the forecast period, owing to the growing consumer electronics sector, across the globe. Additionally, the advancement in technology has revolutionized the consumer electronics sector. Disposable batteries are used to power small portable electronics such as laptops, power tools, video game systems, cell phones, remote controls, and other similar devices, which need to be powered without a power cord. Moreover, these batteries have a steady voltage that offers leakage resistance and better energy density compared to other batteries. These factors are expected to drive the global disposable batteries market.
