Marine Battery Market: Introduction
Batteries used for marine application have to withstand extreme vibrations and stresses, hence the marine batteries are specially engineered in order to perform under worst conditions. Apart from a general starter battery, marine battery is intended to store power and release it over a much longer period of time. Marine battery is used in providing back up power to the safety equipment and powering trolling motor and various other electronic component and systems. With growing environmental regulations on air and water pollution regarding NOx, SOx, and CO2 emissions, the manufacturers are focused to obtain new technologies in order to reduce the emissions while increasing the efficiency of the marine batteries. Growing demand for transportation through marine is increasing the need for more reliable and efficient power backup batteries for safety and trouble free operations of the watercraft in case of power failure. Increasing public attraction towards water sports activities is expected to increase the demand for marine battery across the globe. Growing requirement of new technologies, with increased profitability and emitting less pollution is expected to contribute to the growth of global marine battery market over the forecast period.
