Though there are limited technological advances in the lead-acid battery
market, vendors are introducing new products with enhancements such as longer life and durability.
Since it is easier to make a recycled lead-acid battery
than manufacturing a new one, most players find it more convenient to enter the battery recycling business.
The European Union, the United States and other developed countries have already restricted the lead-acid battery
manufacturing for the sake of environment protection.
The data confirms that the lead-acid battery
remains the nation's most highly recycled consumer product, ahead of steel cans, next in line with a recycling rate of 60 percent in 2003, according to the US.
In addition, McIver says the typical lifespan for a lead-acid battery
has grown from three to five years to six to eight, hampering demand for the replacements that make up most of the market.
Building on our PBX51 product for valve-regulated designs, we are enabling lead-acid battery
manufacturers to improve battery cycle life and performance in both valve-regulated and flooded lead-acid battery
types," said Gregg Smith, general manager, Cabot Energy Materials.
The report focuses on Indonesia; it also covers the Lead-acid Battery
market in Indonesia landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years.
To calculate the market size, the report considers the global lead-acid battery
demand for stationary applications, which include:
Exhibit 2: Li-ion and Lead-acid Battery
Main Characteristics of China Lead-acid battery
After five decades of construction and development, China's lead-acid battery
industry basically has formed the combination of large-scale and small enterprises and had manufacturing system with certain scales.
The book presents a comprehensive overview of the theory of the technological processes of lead-acid battery
manufacture and their influence on battery performance parameters.
