Industry Applications for Battery Manufacturers

You’ll find that this massive industrial segment can be categorized into numerous sectors. These include:

Consumer electronics often use rechargeable batteries. The two most common types are lithium-ion and lithium polymer. Lithium-ion cells are rigid and display familiar designations such as AA and AAA. They find use in smaller items such as remote controls and battery packs for laptop computers. Lithium-polymer batteries are more flexible and can be produced in thinner forms. They are often preferable for larger devices.

The automotive sector contains several subsectors. Lithium-ion batteries power electric and hybrid vehicles. Lead-acid batteries spark the ignition of fossil-fueled cars and trucks. Wet-cell batteries serve as a secondary system charged by a car’s alternator. Nickel hydride batteries also find automotive uses.

Stationary energy storage plays a vital role in renewable energy systems, power grids and backup systems. Many in the industry view batteries as a transition, but they are the present solution, and you can expect them to be needed for some time.

Industrial or commercial batteries find many applications in aerospace, defense, and medical instruments. As with automotive, this sector uses many types of batteries. The designation refers to use rather than chemistry.

Nickel-cadmium batteries are rechargeable. Power tool and medical device manufacturers use them to energize their products.

The vast market served by the largest battery manufacturers suggests rich prospecting fields for a large variety of suppliers.
