battery market in EU 27

 

Europe consumes about one third of all global produced portable batteries. More than five billion pieces of these useful mobile energy-sources are sold to european end-user and correspond to a volume of appr. 210 million kilogram. Following our market research and collection scheme publications, the grafic below compares national sales (POM) versus collection. It can be seen clearly that some major countries are alrealdy at a high level of learning curve, whereas other european countries still running far behind, not complying with mandatory EU minimum collection rates.

Depending on EU-member state, the share of rechargeable batteries is between 17 and 23%. The yearly increase of batteries sold could be estimated to 1 – 3%, specifically because of new member state markets, catching up the life standard to EU-average.
