Growth Drivers and Challenges
The global Lead market is primarily driven by the growth of building construction industry. This growing usage of lead products for architectural metals for roofing materials, gutters & gutter joints and on roof parapets. Moreover, rising demand for lead-acid batteries for automotive application is a major factor which is expanding the market size of Lead across all regions. Expansion in absorbed glass mat (AGM) lead acid batteries on account of their favorable characteristic of being maintenance-free are also expected to provide growth opportunities for the lead market.
Additionally, government of various regions are investing potentially in smart grid technology that further lead to the growth of lead-acid batteries which are used in electrical vehicles (EV) which serve as one of the major component in the smart grid technology. In contrast, production of high quality Lead is costlier along with strict testing procedure which may dampen the growth of Lead market globally. Additionally, rising competition from the lithium-ion battery in many other lead batteries is challenging for market growth.
