Battery Holder Market: Introduction
A battery holder is a case having one or more than one chambers or compartments for holding batteries. The battery holder must also have electrical contact with the terminals of the battery in case of dry cells, whereas, in case of wet cells, cables are usually connected to the terminals of the battery. Battery holders, for instance, are found in emergency lighting equipment automobiles, etc.
A battery holder is either a plastic case in the shape of a housing molded as a chamber or a separate plastic holder which is mounted with eyelets, screws, double-sided tape, glue or other means or chambers that receive the battery cells. Battery holders use a lid to protect or retain the batteries to protect them from getting a short circuit. They may also be sealed to inhibit damage to the circuit or the components of the circuit from battery leakage. Additionally, coiled spring wire and flat tabs are the two most important parts of a battery holder, which press the battery cells against the terminals of the battery, making the electrical connection complete inside the battery holder. On the other hand, the external connections of the battery holder generally consist of the contacts with pins, solder lugs, surface mount feet or wire leads.
Battery Holder Market: Market Dynamics
Various factors, such as stringent emission norms being implemented by governments of various developed nations and growing focus on fuel efficiency are some of the factors estimated to boost the market demand for battery holders. Diminishing fossil fuel reserves, rising CO2 emissions and promising government initiatives are also projected to propel the battery holder market during the forecast period. Batteries are widely used in children’s toys, light beacons, electronic keys, remote controls and wall watches – these products and their extensive demand is estimated to fuel battery demand, which in turn, will drive the market of battery holders globally. Storage applications take account of load leveling in renewable energy sources, such solar and wind energy. Also, increasing aircraft and automobile production in emerging economies is likely to provide enormous potential for the market growth of the battery holder market. Wireless & cordless telephones and emergency lighting and their increasing usage will also drive the demand in the battery holders market.
