AutoTechInsight Webinar: Low Voltage Battery - A traditional technology with a key future role to play

With the shift towards battery electric vehicles gathering momentum in major automotive markets, the battery and electrical architecture of the vehicle are coming more and more into focus. Whilst major news and developments are coming in the high voltage battery market, there is a second piece to the puzzle on all vehicles and that is the 12v low voltage battery.

The Lead Acid 12V Battery has been an underpinning technology to light duty passenger car vehicles for decades. With the growing importance of CASE (Connected, Autonomous, Shared, Electric) content in new vehicles as well as an ever increasing demand for safety features, the Low Voltage battery market is seeing substantial growth and technology development. Required for its traditional starter, lighting & ignition (SLI) function on ICE vehicles, the 12v battery is being used more and more for differing functions, dictating the evolution of its location, capacity and size.

In this webinar, Powertrain and E-mobility analysts from IHS Markit’s Supply Chain & Technology team will present their new research on the topic of Low Voltage Batteries, covering their growth globally out to 2027, looking into how the technology of these batteries is changing based on their usage, exploring whether there is a shift away from Lead-Acid based chemistries, as well as exploring the link between the high and low voltage batteries on hybrid and battery electric vehicles.
