Marine Battery Market Overview


The global marine battery market is registered to hold a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period of 2020 to 2026. The crucial component is always the batteries in the ship, extensively used to offer deep cycle service and starting service. The most commonly used marine applications are flooded lead-acid batteries, gelled-electrolyte batteries, and absorbed glass mat (A.G.M.) batteries.

In 2019, the deep cycle service segment was projected to account for the largest Marine Battery Market Share. A deep cycle battery is developed to offer an extended and slow discharge of fewer amps, which works for hours or several minutes. These batteries demands are increasing due to the electrification of ships. Moreover, the dual purpose service segment is registered to account for the highest CAGR in the research period. This dual-purpose battery can be utilized for both applications, deep cycle service, and marine starting service. It is developed to provide a low amp draw service for consistent auxiliary power and powerful cranking amperage for simple starting.

Generally, the commercial ship type includes:


  • Passenger vessels (cruise ships, yachts, and ferries).

  • Cargo vessels (bulk carriers, container vessels, general cargo ships, and tankers).

  • Other vessels (tugs and workboats, fishing vessels, research vessels, dredgers, and submarines).


Thus, the demand for advanced marine batteries in commercial applications is increasing during the assessment period due to several factors such as implementing the I.M.O. Sulfur 2020 Regulation, increasing maritime tourism industry, and rising seaborne trade. On the other hand, the defense ship type includes corvettes, destroyers, offshore support vessels, frigates, submarines, and aircraft carriers. Moreover, the demand for high-performance marine batteries is projected to grow due to the growing military spending on advanced and new combat vessels development.
