The upgrade and replacement of mission-critical military technology require high levels of battery performance and accuracy. While the United States is the largest contributor to market revenues, emerging economies in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East will offer the highest growth potential for battery manufacturers. New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (http://www.powersupplies.frost.com), Global Military Battery Market, finds that the market earned revenues of more than $1.99 billion in 2012 and estimates this to reach $2.61 billion in 2017. The research covers lithium, lithium-ion, nickel and lead-acid batteries. Lead acid batteries are the most widely-used chemistry in military equipment followed by lithium-ion and primary lithium. "The growing use of sophisticated military equipment in various countries has fuelled the demand for lightweight, high energy density batteries," said Frost & Sullivan Energy & Environmental Industry Manager Suba Arunkumar.
