Within the U.S., the power storage battery industry is the largest end-user of lead, accounting for 83% of domestically consumed lead. Industrial demand for batteries is rising due both to the growth in demand for stationary batteries used in telecommunications and back-up power systems for computers, lighting, and security systems, as well as an increased need for mobile batteries used in fork lifts and other battery-powered vehicles. Additional lead end-uses and users of consequence are ammunition, consumers of lead oxides used in television glass and computers, construction (including radiation shielding) and protective coatings, and miscellaneous uses such as ballasts, ceramics, and crystal glass.
