A significant number of consumer electronic devices rely on batteries for seamless functioning. Besides powering electronic devices, replacement batteries also find extensive applications in the telecommunication sector for efficient energy storage. With the rise in telecom subscriptions, there has been an increase in the number of telecom tower installations. To effectively utilize energy, telecom tower companies are increasingly adopting the use of lithium-ion batteries to supply uninterrupted power sources to their towers. Moreover, lithium-ion batteries have better durability and energy efficiency compared to acid batteries.
Batteries efficiently store and supply electricity to telecom towers, thereby curtailing the dependence on diesel-fueled generators. In case of grid failures, batteries act as a robust backup for telecom towers. The growing concern for the environment and increasing demand for rechargeable batteries are some of the key factors fueling the growth of replacement battery market. However, high cost associated with lithium-ion batteries is hindering the growth of the market.
