Report Highlights

The global metal air batteries market reached $453.1 million in 2013. This market is expected to grow to $1.7 billion in 2018, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 31.0%.

Report Includes

  • An overview of the global market for metal-air batteries.
  • Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2012, estimates for 2013, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2018.
  • Analysis of the market in terms of industry organization, key market drivers and limiters, marketing and business strategies, environmental considerations, and governmental involvement
  • Relevanat patent analysis
  • Comprehensive profiles of leading companies in the industry.


The scope of this report is to describe and compare the numerous battery technologies available on the market, with a focus on the characteristics of metal-air cells. Each technology comes with tradeoffs and the report analyzes costs, benefits, drawbacks and applications of metal-air cells, compared to other technologies. Ample space is given to the state of the art of this technology. A discussion of the properties of different metals applied to metal-air cells (zinc, lithium, aluminum, magnesium, sodium and iron) is also provided. Since it is at its infancy, the metal-air batteries market is now mostly a small niche for medical devices. However, because of their unique characteristics (massive energy density and light weight), they have been developed for electric-vehicles and as energy storage devices for the electric grid. The global market will increase at a 31% compound annual growth rate through 2018.

Profiles of key market players and small startups are also included. Major products that generate revenues, as well as the most-valuable R&D products that will come on the market up to 2018 are provided.

In-depth competitive market analysis is discussed, with examples of how new products will enter the market or how existing products will survive or perish. The report also includes a very detailed description of current and future technologies for the fabrication of metal-air cells.
