Covered in this report

Batteries are widely used for purposes such as energy storage, powering electronics, and as a source of power back-up in industries such as oil and gas, railways, mining, automotive, manufacturing, healthcare, education, retail, and pharmaceutical. They can also be coupled with devices such as inverters and solar panels and used to store electrical energy for later on-demand use. According to procurement analysts at SpendEdge, the use of electric power in vehicles is increasing due to the production of new hybrid and electric vehicles from OEMs across the globe. Also, government initiatives (such as subsidies for electric vehicles in countries such as the US, Japan, and China) undertaken for encouraging eco-friendly transportation due to growing awareness about environmental protection among people is driving the demand for batteries in vehicles. The global automotive industry is expected to grow steadily during 2018–2022 due to the rapid urbanization, increased per capita income, and rise in transportation activities in the world. This growth in the automotive industry and electric vehicle market is creating a demand for automotive batteries, which in turn is driving the global battery market.

Category driver

One of the procurement best practices for buyers is to obtain assistance in selection of battery. Buyers should engage with suppliers that can help in selecting the right battery that can fulfill their purpose. Specifications that are critical to the performance of a battery are as follows:

Cell chemistry: Electrochemical characteristics of the chemical components of the battery

Internal impedance: Determines the current carrying capability of the battery

Discharge rates: Measure of the rate at which a battery is discharged relative to its maximum capacity

Cycle life: Provides an indication of the expected working lifetime of the battery

Solutions can be categorized into:

Automotive

Telecommunications

Security systems

Oil and gas exploration

Railway backup systems
