The global power bank market reached a value of US$ 12 Billion in 2020. Power banks are portable chargers that are designed for recharging electronic gadgets on the go. They can range from pocket-sized, slim devices to larger and higher-capacity chargers. Owing to their convenient nature, power banks are used for charging various devices, such as tablets, portable speakers, laptops, mobile phones and cameras. Depending on the budget limits and power requirement of the user, portable chargers are available in varied shapes and sizes. Generally made from Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) and Lithium-Polymer (Li-Po) batteries, these chargers are categorized as universal/standard, and solar power bank. The standard or universal charger can be charged through conventional USB sources, whereas solar power banks can use both USB chargers and sunlight.
At present, various factors are driving the growth of the industry, which include a significant shift toward 3G and 4G networks, the rising popularity of digital content, and the increasing processing power of devices. Along with this, burgeoning demand for smartphones and the declining prices of power banks are some of the other drivers that are influencing market growth. Also, the industry has been witnessing a rise in the number of new entrants as power banks are emerging as fast-moving consumer electronics and require low capital investment for the establishment of manufacturing facilities. This increase in competition has prompted manufacturers to introduce innovative solutions in the market to retain and expand their consumer base. For instance, in 2019, the Portugal-based technology company, EGG Electronics, launched EGG Traveler, the world’s first portable power strip with a built-in power bank and wireless charging. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global power bank market to grow at a CAGR of around 10% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
