Overview of the Battery Manufacturing Industry

A battery invented by Alessandro Volta is an electrochemical appliance which can save energy as chemical energy. It is transformed/converted to electric energy because of the flow of electrons once the said battery circuit is completed. Because of the constant rising use of batteries as an alternative to traditional energy consumption, the Battery Manufacturing Industry is growing at a very high rate. 

The battery is used to operate the devices where the power is needed for future applications. Batteries are generally used in emergency, low-power or portable devices. These devices include-

  • Emergency devices like touch, inverter, lamps, etc.
  • Low-power devices like oximeters, watches, toys, etc.
  • Portal devices like cell phones, laptops, tablets, etc.

Different types of Batteries

Due to differences in size, chemical composition, use cases and form factors, batteries are classified into different categories. But produced in a battery manufacturing unit, they are majorly classified under two types mentioned below-




One that cannot be charged

Coin cells

AA catteries

AAA catteries

Button cells


One that is rechargeable


Nickle cadmium

Nickle metal hydride


Market Overview of the Battery Manufacturing Industry

According to the reports published by NITI Aayog, the battery manufacturing industry market can surpass 15 billion dollars in 2030to 260 GWh by 2030, with the constant rise in demand in India.
