Single-Use (Primary) Batteries in the US

Single-Use (Primary) Batteries in the US

Single-use battery demand in the United States is forecast to expand 1.5 percent per year to $3.5 billion in 2020. Zinc air batteries will continue to post the most rapid growth, driven by increased purchases of hearing aids by an aging population.

Single-use batteries - also known as primary, disposable, or dry-cell batteries - are non-rechargeable energy storage units that are thrown away or recycled after discharge.

Types of single-use batteries in the study include:
Alkaline
Lithium
Zinc air
Silver oxide
Zinc-carbon/zinc-chloride
Specialty types

The major markets for single-use batteries included are:
Consumer
Industrial
Government
