Market Size & Trends

The U.S. automotive battery aftermarket size was valued at USD 15.18 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2023 to 2030. The market is driven by stringent government regulations and emission norms governing the auto industry. Regional regulatory authorities such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other federal and international agencies are implementing stringent government regulations. For instance, the U.S. EPA implemented regulations related to the storage of used lead-acid batteries to avoid pollution. In addition, lithium batteries must adhere to guidelines levied by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) for transportation purposes.

U.S. Automotive Battery Aftermarket market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

Implementing policies such as the Kyoto Protocol to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions is expected to increase the adoption of hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) over the forecast period. Moreover, stringent regulations related to carbon emissions have increased demand for start-stop battery technology. In addition, a rise in incentives from the U.S. government for manufacturing HEVs is boosting market growth. For instance, the U.S. American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds private and government entities to develop HEVs.

Increasing fuel prices and growing environmental concerns in developed countries have also effectively raised interest in the potential of electric vehicles to replace conventional fuel-based vehicles globally. This optimistic scenario for HEVs will positively impact market growth over the next few years.

Technological advancements have also triggered business changes, owing to which OEMs and suppliers focus on collaborations within the industry and with technology companies. These collaborations are expected to be pivotal in the market's future development. They allow different entities to work together to draft standards for emerging technologies, such as battery charging infrastructure for electric vehicles.

Battery Type Insights

On the basis of battery type, the market has been segmented into lithium-ion, lead acid, nickel-based, sodium-ion, and others. The lead acid segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 72.9% in 2022. Lead acid batteries are expected to witness a significant rise in demand chiefly due to their recyclable nature. Lead as an element is toxic and should not be disposed of. Therefore, it is recycled and reused to produce new batteries. Lead acid batteries are most suitable for recycling as 70.0% of their weight contains reusable lead. This segment is anticipated to observe steady growth over the forecast period.

U.S. battery recycling companies collect used batteries from consumers for recycling and reuse. These are first broken into pieces, lead heavy materials and plastics are separated from the broken pieces. The plastic waste is properly washed and sent to a plastic recycler, where the pieces are melted. The extrusion process then gives the molten plastic shape and is sent to battery manufacturers for further processing. Lead oxide, lead grids, and lead parts are cleaned properly and melted in smelting furnaces.

The sodium-ion segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 18.3% during the forecast period. Due to their abundant and low-cost raw material supply, sodium-ion batteries have gained attention as a potential alternative to traditional lithium-ion batteries. The growing focus on reducing carbon emissions and transitioning towards cleaner transportation has spurred interest in sodium-ion batteries as a promising technology.

Vehicle Type Insights

Based on vehicle type, the U.S. automotive battery aftermarket has been segmented into passenger vehicle, electric vehicle, commercial vehicle, and others. The passenger vehicles segment captured the largest revenue share of over 56.5% in 2022. The growing number of passenger vehicles on the road is leading to a higher demand for automotive batteries, as these vehicles require periodic battery replacements due to wear and tear. As the average age of vehicles increases, there is a greater likelihood of battery failure, prompting vehicle owners to seek replacement batteries, driving the growth of the aftermarket segment.

The electric vehicle segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 9.4% during the forecast period. Significant rise in advancements in battery technology over the years has increased the use of various battery-operated devices across the U.S. HEVs, for instance, are equipped with a number of features that consume a substantial amount of battery power. These include GPS navigation systems, power windows, air-conditioning systems, and display systems that denote battery charge levels.

Distribution Channel Insights

Based on the distribution channel, the market is segmented into retail/brick, e-commerce, and others. The retail/brick segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 57.7% in 2022. The U.S. automotive industry has witnessed steady growth in vehicle ownership, resulting in a larger customer base for automotive battery replacements. As vehicles age and their original batteries reach the end of their lifespan, there is a rising demand for aftermarket automotive batteries.

The e-commerce segment is estimated to register the fastest CAGR of 9.3% over the forecast period. The e-commerce sector in the country features established e-retail companies such as Amazon.com and e-Bay. The rising penetration of e-commerce in the supply chain will enhance the market's growth prospects over the forecast period.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

The industry players are undertaking strategies such as product launches, acquisitions, and collaborations to increase their global reach. For instance, in September 2022, Yuasa Battery, Inc. launched YBX automotive and marine batteries to the North American battery market. Yuasa Battery Inc.'s new YBX brand features next-generation battery innovation developed in collaboration with top vehicle manufacturers, and it delivers charged and ready for installation. Yuasa's YBX batteries have been optimized for partial charge efficiency and built with lower self-discharge rates for expanded lifespans with advanced technology cars in consideration.
