For example, the U.S. environmental protection agency regulates storage-related concerns about lead-acid batteries to reduce air pollution. Additionally, international air transport associations have set the guidelines owing to lithium batteries.

U.S. automotive battery after market

Regulation of Kyoto protocol for reducing the release of greenhouse gases, which is projected to positively impact the growth of electric vehicles. In addition, strict guidelines regarding carbon emission are surging the need for start-stop technology in batteries. Furthermore, rising government funding and investments are also expected to drive the demand for HEVs. For example, the American reinvestment & recovery act has provided funds to manufacturers to develop HEVs.Increasing environmental concerns and changing fuel prices are projected to influence the consumer to look after electric vehicles. Thus, the consumer is shifting towards electric vehicles from conventional vehicles.

Technological advancement is allowing suppliers, and OEMs to partner and collaborate with technology solution provider companies. These initiatives are expected to create huge opportunities for market growth especially in developing battery charging solutions.

Battery Type Insights

The U.S. automotive battery aftermarket is fragmented into lithium-ion, nickel-based, lead-acid, sodium-ion, and others depending on the battery type. Lead-acid batteries are projected to hold the largest share in the market by the end of the forecast period. These batteries are recyclable which is a key factor contributing to its significant growth. The lead-acid battery contains around 70.0% of reusable lead. Thus, the lead-acid segment is projected to grow at a substantial rate during the forecast period. Recycling companies in the market collect used batteries to reuse. In the recycling process, batteries are first cracked into parts of plastics, lead, and other materials. The plastic pieces are washed and then placed into a plastic recycler. Lead grids and lead oxide are then cleaned and melted into the furnace.

Vehicle Type Insights

In 2018, the passenger vehicle type held the largest market share in the overall market. This segment is estimated to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The electric vehicle type segment is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecasted period, owing to the increasing need for electric vehicles such as HEVs.

Rising development in battery technologies is also supporting the growth of the industry. For example, HEVs are designed in a way that it consumes optimum battery power. In addition, it offers power windows, AC systems, advanced display systems, and GPS systems. These advanced features are expected to gain momentum over the forecast period.

Distribution Channel Insights

The market is segmented into e-commerce, retail/brick, and others based on the distribution channels. In 2018, the Retail/Brick channel held the highest market share in the overall market. This segment is estimated to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period, from 2018 to 2025.

U.S. automotive battery aftermarket share

The E-commerce channel is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecasted period. Some of the key e-retailers are included in e-Bay and Amazon.com. Additionally, the increasing trend of e-commerce in OEMs and supply chain business is expected to contribute to the segmental growth.

Impact of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted the U.S. automotive battery aftermarket. COVID-19 outbreak has slowed down the production of passenger and commercial vehicles. Various OEMs and battery cells suppliers are facing supply chain disruption as a result the market has witnessed a decline in auto sales. For instance, the sales of electric vehicles (EVs) in the U.S. were dropped by 33.0% during the first quarter of 2020.

U.S. automotive battery manufacturers purchase battery cells from China, but the COVID-19 pandemic has slowed the shipment and supply chain of batteries. Thus, the manufacturers are focusing on localizing their supply chain network to mitigate production risks.

U.S. Automotive Battery Aftermarket Share Insights

Leading players in the market include EnerSys, A123 systems LLC, Exide Technologies, Johnson controls, Tesla, Inc., NEC Corporation, and Delphi Technologies.

Manufacturers engage in developing new products through technological innovations. For instance, in 2016, East Penn Company has launched Fahrenheit technology for designing glass mat absorbent batteries. Similarly, in 2017, A123 systems have invested in a company called Solid Power Inc, for developing new products.
