U.S. Forklift Battery Market Outlook - 2030

The U.S. forklift battery market size was valued at $810.5 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $1,785.3 million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 8.5% from 2021 to 2030. Batteries that provide power supply to forklift trucks or used in forklift trucks are usually known as forklift batteries. They need high power and energy density. Generally, lead-acid and lithium-ion batteries are used in the forklift trucks as per convenience during material handling operations. Lead-acid batteries come with a mixture of electrolyte, water, and sulphuric acid; on the other hand, lithium-ion batteries are waterless that makes them maintenance-free. 

The growth of the U.S. forklift battery market is driven by emergence of fuel cell forklifts as an alternative to the electric forklift. In addition, expansion of warehouse spaces & manufacturing industry is projected to fuel the U.S. forklift battery market growth. However, high cost associates with the lithium-ion battery is the key factor restraining the market growth in the upcoming years. On the contrary, rise in penetration of green logistics is expected to create lucrative opportunity for the key players in the forklift battery market.
