Essay / Research Paper Abstract
This 10 page report discusses the battery market and the fact that as technology has come to dominate virtually every aspect of modern life, one of the supporting industries of all types of that technology is simply the power source that keeps the technology operating -- batteries. This paper considers what that means in terms of batteries for consumer electronics and the interrelationships that exist between the manufacturers of both batteries and electronics. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

Unformatted sample text from the term paper:
of the supporting industries of all types of that technology is simply the power source that keeps the technology operating -- batteries. Batteries are used in telephones of multiple types
and capabilities, computers, computer accessories such as PDAs, a wireless keyboard or computer mouse, electronic games, cameras (digital, video, and "traditional") entertainment units such as personal tape recorders and CD
players, communication devices such as walkie-talkies and intercoms, childrens toys ("batteries not included") and countless other items. Of course, it is also important to think of the much larger applications
for batteries in cars, trucks, and all modes of mechanized transportation -- whether snowmobile or motorcycle! All of these examples can fit into a category that should be thought of
as the broad range of "consumer products" but batteries are needed in industry, business, healthcare, and military applications and devices as well. Increasing demand, especially by consumers, for
a broad array of power sources has resulted in an increase in the research and development of new types of batteries with new capabilities and, therefore, new markets. According to
Owen (2001), improved batteries, along with improved forms of fuel cells and supercapacitors, are "currently in high demand because of the expansion of consumer electronics, expectation of the EV [electric
vehicles] and problems of large-scale electricity storage and distribution" (pp. 572). Owen explains that the "resurgence of interest in batteries of all sizes, from on-chip microbatteries, through mobile phone batteries,
to larger batteries" (pp. 572). is directly related to market demand. As with most every form of modern technology, the industries that serve the overall functionality of separate consumer devices
must keep pace in order to assure that there product is as much in demand as the larger item in which the product -- the battery -- is used.
