­­­Global Silver Oxide Battery Market - Insights

Silver oxide battery consists of silver oxide as positive electrode and zinc as negative electrode. It contains potassium hydroxide or sodium hydroxide as electrolyte. Silver oxide batteries are used widely, owing to its durability and high energy weight ratio.

It is commonly used as miniature power source. Small button silver oxide batteries are widely used in watches, calculators, toys, hearing aids, and photo electric exposure instruments. Larger batteries are used in missiles, submarines, aerospace, and underwater applications.

Advantages of silver oxide batteries such as high capacity, low shelf discharge, and long shelf-life is a major factor driving growth of the global silver oxide battery market.

According to a Coherent Market Insights’ study, global hearing aids market was valued at US$ 7,584.8 million in 2016 and is expected to witness a robust CAGR of 4.6% between 2017 and 2025. This significant growth in the hearing aids market is propelling growth of the global silver oxide battery market.

Growing adoption of electronic wearables is fuelling growth of the global silver oxide battery market. According to Consumer Technology Association, health, fitness, and sports technology including fitness activity trackers, hearables hearing devices, smartwatches, and others is estimated to reach sales of 49.3 million units in 2018, an increase by 4% in from 2017 in the U.S.

However, high cost of silver in the silver oxide batteries is a major factor negatively affecting growth of the global silver oxide battery market.

The global silver oxide battery market was valued at US$ 15.55 Billion in 2017 and is anticipated to register a CAGR of 3% in terms of revenue, over the forecast period (2017 – 2025) to reach US$ 19.70 Billion by 2025.
