Disposable Battery Market: Introduction

  • A disposable battery is an electrochemical cell in which electricity is generated by an irreversible chemical reaction, which makes it a non-rechargeable battery. Disposable batteries are also known as primary batteries. Disposable batteries are portable, small batteries with a long shelf life. Over the last few years, the use of electronic gadgets has significantly increased, which has promoted growth of the global disposable battery market. These batteries witness high demand for use in several consumer electronics goods.
  • Market players are investing heavily in R&D of disposable batteries to develop more advanced and eco-friendly batteries

Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Disposable Battery Market

  • Disposable batteries have longer life than that of rechargeable batteries. A disposable alkaline battery works twice longer than a rechargeable battery. This makes disposable batteries useful for low-drain devices. Hence, long life is a key driver of the global disposable battery market.
  • Disposable batteries have lower price than rechargeable batteries, which makes them the first choice of consumers. A rechargeable battery can be used for multiple times, due to which the cost of rechargeable batteries is significantly higher. Thus, the lower price of disposable batteries is expected to be a key driver of the global disposable battery market during the forecast period.
  • Increase in awareness about environment protection is expected to restrain the global disposable battery market during the forecast period. These batteries are used for one time only, after which they are dumped in landfills. Disposable batteries contain heavy metals and strong acids, which makes them a hazardous waste. Governments across the world are imposing stringent policies about the disposal of hazardous waste. Thus, increase in awareness related to the environment is expected to restrain the global disposable battery market during the forecast period.
