The Global Lead Acid Battery Separator Market is expected to grow at a CAGR during the forecasting period (2022-2029).
The global Lead-Acid Battery Separator Market is segmented by Material into Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP), and Others. Further, based on application, the market is segmented into Automotive, Industrial, Electronics, and Others.
Based on application, the market accounted for the largest share in Automotive applications due to increasing demand for electric cars and HEVs.
The Government has imposed stringent regulations to recycle lead acid batteries due to the high toxicity of lead. Through recycling, over 99% of battery lead has been recovered (Battery Council, 2017).
However, the lithium-ion battery does not contain heavy metals and contain mostly copper, cobalt, nickel, and iron.
Lead-Acid Battery Separator is required to function the following requirements:
stable in sulfuric acid
prevent shorting between electrodes
provide mechanical spacing between electrodes
allow ionic conduction without dendrite growth
Lead acid battery separators were previously used to have polyvinyl chloride, organic rubber, cellulose, and polyolefins. However, now lead acid batteries use polyethylene separators. A Polyethylene Separator is a microporous separator that needs a large amount of precipitated silica to be acid-wettable. Polyethylene is responsible for the mechanical properties of the separator while Silica is for electrical properties.
The major companies of lithium-ion separators include Asahi Kasei, Toray Industry, Freudenberg, SK Innovation, Entek International, Sumitomo Chemical, Ube Industries, Dreamweaver International, Bernard Dumas, W-Scope Industries, Porous Power Technologies, and Daramic.
NSG has signed an agreement with Entek International and Separindo, to invest in PT Entek Separindo Asia, a joint venture done by two companies for the manufacturing and sale of polyethylene (PE) separators for lead-acid batteries.
