The growth in the use of portable medical devices is expected to drive the demand for primary battery market during the forecast period.The global primary battery market is segmented based on type into - alkaline battery, zinc-carbon battery, mercury battery, lithium battery, silver-oxide battery, and zinc-air battery among others.While the zinc-carbon battery is one of the cheapest types of primary batteries, the alkaline batteries have gained popularity as high-capacity replacement for zinc-carbon batteries that offer wide range of applications. These batteries last longer and have higher energy output and longer shelf life, which further boosts their demand.The market is divided into - North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa, and analysed.The United States is expected to continue its dominance over the primary batteries market during the forecast period, but is expected to slowly decline in terms of market share. This is due to the shift toward secondary batteries, and various other shortcomings of primary batteries.The United States and Europe are expected to continue to produce primary batteries, mainly used for defence and industrial applications. As part of cost cuts, various manufacturers have shifted production overseas. Branded products are facing tough competition from no-label and own-label batteries.Companies ProfiledDuracell Inc.Sanyo Energy CorporationPanasonic CorporationHitachi Maxell Ltd.Excell Battery Co.GP BatteriesEnergizer Holdings Inc.
