Some manufacturers of primary batteries
may not be able to cope because they can't sit and wait around for an order every four or five years.
Demand for primary batteries
, exposed to more mature product markets and less potential for technological upgrade, will grow at a below-average pace.
Although the most intensive technological imperatives are found on the secondary (rechargeable) end of the battery spectrum, producers of primary batteries
are also under pressure to upgrade performance/price tradeoffs in a highly competitive market climate.
But from 1992 to 1997, factory sales of primary batteries
--described as AAA, AA and related sizes, in addition to rechargeables and telephone and camcorder packs -- nearly doubled.

Major product categories are storage batteries (55 percent) and primary batteries
Technical advances in existing primary battery chemistries and the development of new chemistries have allowed primary batteries
to become a viable power source for high-drain electronic devices such as digital cameras.
