Global Zn-air Battery Market: Introduction
Zn-air Battery is a type of metal air batteries which is powered by oxidization of zinc with oxygen gas from the air. Zn-air battery is type of electrochemical storage device. Zn-air battery has large energy storage density and is less expensive to manufacture. The size of Zn-air battery ranges from small hearing aid button cells, large batteries used in old cameras to very large batteries used in electric vehicles.
Zn-air battery is used as a source of power for electric vehicles, communication and transmission devices, lamps along with other consumer devices & gadgets such as hearing aids. Zn-air battery is comprised of zinc anode and a cathode. Zn-air battery is also available in rechargeable and non-rechargeable type. In Zn-air battery the oxygen from air reacts with cathode to form hydroxyl ions. Further, zinc combines with hydroxyl ions to form zincate.
During the process of reaction electricity is generated. As compared to lithium ion batteries the Zn-air battery is 30-40% less expensive. As compared to Li-Ion batteries Zn-Air battery can match or surpass its energy density and specific energy. Also, the Zn-air battery does not have fire risk which are associated with Li-Ion batteries. Zinc is easily available in nature and is very less expensive in comparison with lithium which is a rare metal. Thus, Zn-air battery has lesser production cost.
