Analysts’ Viewpoint on Africa Lead Acid Battery Market Scenario

Lead acid batteries have already become ubiquitous in the consumer electronics sector and thus, manufacturers should focus more on emerging end-use industries, such as telecommunication and energy storage, to tap into new opportunity areas. Global manufacturers of lead acid batteries should focus on the expansion of their distribution capacities in Africa by collaborating with regional players as well as channel partners. There is limited industrialization in Africa; however, majority of the industrial base lies in South Africa, Algeria, Egypt, Nigeria, Morocco, and a few other countries. Therefore, manufacturers of lead acid batteries should focus primarily on these countries in order to increase their presence across the region. Market stakeholders should adopt contingency planning to strategically allocate budgets in order to prevent disruptions across consumer demand, inventory supplies, and logistic services amongst other areas post the COVID-19 impact.

Overview of Africa Lead Acid Battery Market

A battery that is composed of sponge metallic lead anode, lead-dioxide cathode, and sulfuric acid solution electrolyte is called a lead-acid battery. It was the first battery that was used for commercial applications. Lead acid batteries are widely used in the transportation industry, as countries are adopting electric vehicles to reduce carbon emissions.

Key market segments in Africa lead acid battery market span across various industries, including automotive, uninterruptible power supply (UPS), and telecommunication.

Lead acid batteries are more durable, cost-effective, and resistant to wear & tear as compared to lithium-ion batteries, and they can endure overcharging. They also have a high cell voltage and a high power-to-weight ratio since they supply high surge currents, making them ideal for use in automobiles.

The market value of the Africa lead acid battery market is expected to grow due to the increasing production of secondary batteries. The chemical reactions that occur in secondary cells are reversible. The reactants that generate an electric current in these batteries (via chemical reactions) can be regenerated by passing a current through the battery (recharging). One type of lead acid battery is the sealed lead acid battery, also called valve regulated lead acid (VRLA) battery, which is a lead acid battery that has the sulfuric acid electrolyte coagulated (thickened) so that it does not spill out.

Demand for Lead Acid Battery in Data Centers to Favor Manufacturers

The telecommunications sector is one of the very few industries witnessing rapid technological development and improvement even during the tough times of recession.

Stationary batteries are used for diverse applications, where power is necessary on a standby or emergency basis. These batteries do not discharge frequently due to minimal duration, and they do not require high storage capacity. Thus, lead acid batteries provide a viable solution to the telecom sector.

An increase in the number of subscribers are prompting telecom companies to increase the installation of the number of telecom towers, which is considerably boosting the demand for lead acid batteries for backup purposes.

The rise in the number of data centers and tower installations during the forecast period is likely to drive the demand for lead acid batteries, until a viable alternative is available, which can be used for battery-based power backup purposes instead of lead acid batteries.

These data centers eventually require a central power backup facility; even the UPS used in the systems comprises basic lead acid batteries. Thus, a rise in the number of data centers is expected to boost the usage of this battery considerably.

Based on the factors mentioned above, increasing demand for telecommunication and data center applications is expected to drive the lead acid battery market in Africa during the forecast period.

Rise in Adoption of Lead Acid Battery in Hybrid Vehicles to Boost Market

The world is witnessing a proliferation in the adoption of hybrid vehicles. Typically, lead acid batteries are used in hybrid vehicles for short power bursts, such as starting a car engine or running light electrical loads. Moreover, lead acid batteries supply extra power when the vehicle’s electrical load exceeds the supply from the charging system (alternator) and act as a voltage stabilizer in the electrical system, which evens out voltage spikes, thereby preventing them from damaging other components in the electrical system.

Government initiatives such as EVI Membership, EV30@30 campaign, FAME-I and II, National Mission for Transformative Mobility and Battery Manufacturing, National Electric Mobility Mission Plan, and Phased Manufacturing Program are promoting the use of next-generation mobility. These initiatives to boost the adoption of hybrid vehicles are expected to increase the production of hybrid vehicles, and subsequently propel the demand for leads acid batteries.

Several automotive manufacturers, including Honda, Toyota, and Nissan are also making significant investments for the development of mild hybrid vehicles. Automakers have initiated the introduction of 48V mild hybrid vehicles among standard features in new vehicle models. The introduction of such mild hybrid vehicles into the market is driving the adoption of lead storage battery types for automotive applications.

Diverse Applications of Flooded Lead Acid Batteries to Fuel Market Growth

In terms of product, the Africa lead acid battery market has been classified into flooded, sealed, AGM, and gel. The flooded segment dominated the Africa lead acid battery market with more than 64.1% share in 2021. The segment is expected to propel rapidly at a CAGR of 4% during the forecast period. The demand for flooded batteries is high due to their cost-effectiveness.

The flooded batteries are widely adopted, owing to their high backup power and their ability to operate when charged partially. Flooded batteries are preferred in grid energy storage and utility.

The flooded battery segment is estimated to augment two times faster than the absorbent glass mat (AGM) battery segment by the end of 2031, owing to an increase in the use of flooded batteries as commercial and residential backup batteries. On the other hand, manufacturers are diversifying their production for valve regulated lead acid battery types which are being publicized for their reverse power design since the electrolyte is captive, preventing it from spilling even when the case is punctured.

Country Outlook of Africa Lead Acid Battery Market

Based on country, the lead acid battery market in Africa has been segregated into Nigeria, Ethiopia, Egypt, South Africa, Kenya, Uganda, Algeria, and Ghana.

South Africa accounted for a relatively large share of the lead acid battery market in Africa, in terms of revenue. Building & construction is a rapidly growing sector due to an increase in population in the country. Infrastructure development projects, booming industrialization, and construction activities are expected to be on the higher side in the country, which, in turn, is expected to supplement the demand for lead acid batteries for activities, such as backup, lighting & power tools.

Furthermore, the Government of South Africa is focusing on investment in electric car makers to launch more electric vehicles. Enactment of regulations and carbon emission policies also boosts the lead acid battery market. All the above factors indicate why South Africa is a leading country of the lead acid battery market in Africa.

Analysis of Key Players in Africa Lead Acid Battery Market

The demand analysis of Africa lead acid battery market indicates toward investment in research & development (R&D) activities to produce advanced, high-performance, and corrosion-free lead acid batteries. Furthermore, companies should increase awareness about the advantages of lead acid batteries, such as robust performance during sudden outages & power surges and low maintenance cost of batteries, in order to compensate for its high initial investment cost.

Stakeholders operating in the Africa lead acid battery market are increasing the availability of different 12v lead acid battery types such as gel batteries that are eliminating the need for regular maintenance and help to prevent fluid leakage.
