Zinc-Air batteries Market: Growth Drivers

 The robust shift for energy storage batteries fueling the market growth 

The growing population coupled with the rise in energy demand has spurred the performance of the global zinc-air batteries market. In addition, advancements in technology and high investment in the sustainable battery storage system from the government of both developed and developing economies are projected to increase the need for zinc air batteries. Zinc-air batteries are widely used to store energy owing to their high-density proportion as compared to others fuel cells. These supporting factors are expected to foster the market growth in the coming years.

Zinc-air batteries Market: Restraints

 Disadvantages associated with zinc-air batteries to hamper the market 

Zinc-air batteries rely on ambient conditions and tend to get dry out once exposed to the outside air. In addition, zinc-air batteries have flooding potential, a limited output, and their shelf life is short. Due to these factors, several key manufacturers have opted for alternative battery sources for energy storage system. These factors are expected to hamper the market growth during the forecast period.

Zinc-air batteries Market: Opportunities

Robust demand from hearing aids machines

The growing number of old age people and the rise in the number of hearing problems among people will enhance the performance of zinc-air batteries during the forecast period. For instance, according to an article published by World Health Organization in April 2021, by 2050, nearly 2.5 billion people are projected to have some degree of hearing loss and at least 700 million will require hearing rehabilitation. Zinc-air batteries have significant applications in hearing aid machines as they are power sources for hearing aids, medical devices, and pagers. In addition, this battery provides longer shelf life and more energy than any other type of battery or cell system. These factors are anticipated to create new opportunities for the global zinc-air batteries market in the pharmaceutical industry.

Zinc-air batteries Market: Challenges

Presence of mercury and corrosion between electrolyte & anode zinc-air batteries

The global growth of zinc-air batteries has been hampered due to the presence of mercury in zinc. Mercury is hazardous to the health and inhalation of mercury has an adverse effect on human health and the environment. In addition, zinc-air batteries produce explosive hydrogen gas in a corrosive reaction with an anode electrolyte that makes the battery unsafe and reduces the shelf life of the battery. This may acts as a challenging factor for the zinc-air batteries market during the forecast period. 

Zinc-air batteries Market: Segmentation

The global zinc-air batteries market is segmented based on type, end-use industry, and region.

Based on type, the global zinc-air batteries are segmented into rechargeable and non-rechargeable. The rechargeable battery type segment will dominate during the forecast period and accounted for 48.65% of the total market share. Rechargeable zinc-air batteries are cost-effective, durable, and have high shelf life owing to which it is widely adopted in many end-use industries such as electric vehicles, electronic gadgets, and small-scale devices to large-scale devices. This factor is anticipated to drive the zinc-air battery market for the rechargeable segment.

Based on the end-use industry it is categorized into military devices, hearing aids, safety lamps, medical devices, energy storage, and others. The hearing aids end-use segment will dominate during the forecast period and accounted for 36.65% of the total market share. According to an article published by Audientes, in India, 75 million adults have disabling hearing loss problems. Zinc-air batteries are an excellent source of powering material and also offer longer shelf life to the machines. These factors are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the hearing aids end-use segment during the forecast period.
