Chemistry & Materials for Lead-Based Batteries

Lead-Based Batteries for Next Generation Commercial Applications

28-29 January 2019

By 2025, it is expected that the global lead acid battery market will reach $84.46 billion. A significant spike in technological advancements have created smaller, light weight and long lasting lead-based batteries that are critical to the development of the next generation of commercial applications. Using new composite materials and innovative design approaches, researchers are developing high specific energy batteries with long cycle life and low cost. In addition, creative improvements in the use of standard raw materials for lead-acid has led to a dramatic increase in the performance of these batteries. This session will provide an in-depth international overview of the industry, including the latest trends, competitive analysis and examination of the key players and their strategies for market growth.
