The global automotive lead-acid battery market is expected to grow exponentially in years to come thanks to ever-increasing urbanisation and industrialisation, technological advancements, and growing inclination toward electric vehicles.

According to research agency Radiant Research, although lithium batteries have been dominating the market, lead-acid batteries, specifically those used predominantly in the automotive sector, are reported to be 99% recyclable. This has made them the strongest contender with regards to renewable energy solutions and electric vehicles.

According to experts, cost-optimised energy storage installations would prefer using lead as a battery storage system. It has also been observed that stationary lead-batteries are much more efficient in terms of energy storage.
