Increasing demand for electric forklifts: a major market driver

Globally, the demand for forklifts is increasing due to the increase in
the e-commerce market. Electric forklifts and internal combustion engine
(ICE) forklifts are the two types of forklifts. Mechanical, automotive,
food and beverage, logistics, chemical, timber and paper printing, and
retail and wholesale companies are the major end-users of electric
powered forklifts. Most of the end-users prefer electric forklifts due
to their low emissions and noise levels. Along with the environmental
benefits, electric forklifts can eliminate fuel costs. Additionally,
electric forklifts also have a longer lifespan when compared with the
ICE-powered forklifts.

Legislative support for battery recycling: emerging market trend

The European Union (EU) has strict legislation for alkaline batteries.
All battery manufacturers are obliged to meet the regulated recycling
levels. In countries such as the US and Canada, a corporation has been
set up to support battery recycling for future use. Such regulations are
implemented to create an environment-friendly and economically
sustainable business models and ensure recycling efficiency. Thus,
effective recycling can also bring about sustainable agriculture

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on energy
, “Several players in the market produce and recycle
lead-acid batteries. For example, Exide Technologies has ten battery
recycler facilities worldwide and has one of the largest secondary lead
recycling facilities across the globe. Legislative support will lead to
higher rates of lead-acid battery recycling, which coupled with the
growth of end-user segments such as the automotive industry and motive

Global market opportunities
