The World's Most Popular CR2032 Brands By Continent

   The CR2032 battery can powers watches, PDAs, remote controls, and many other kinds of consumer electronics. Well known battery brands sell the CR2032 in a wide variety of retail outlets in nearly every corner of the planet. Here are the most popular CR2032 brands sorted by continent:

North America
   In the United States and Canada, the most popular carriers of the CR2032 battery are Energizer, Duracell, Rayovac, and Varta.

South America
   The popular CR2032 carrying brands in South America are Maxell, Renata, Panasonic, Energizer, and Rayovac.

   Both Europe and the U.S.A. aren’t all that different when it comes to brands that carry the CR2032 battery. Energizer and Duracell are the top contenders, while Varta and Rayovac, and Eveready occupy the lower priced tiers.

   For a time, the South African based Eveready (completely different from the U.S. company) dominated the market, but it didn’t take long before Duracell bought out the company and now remains the top battery brand. Naturally, Energizer competes with Duracell is this market as well.

   Much like the rest of the world, Duracell has been very competitive in Asia. The company built a $60 million alkaline plant in 1996 in order to bypass the cost of importing their batteries into the market. Today, Duracell competes with Varta and Energizer in the Asian market.

   Just like the U.S.A. and Europe, both Energizer and Duracell compete with one another to be the top household battery brand in Australia. There are a few other players like Pansonic, Rayovac, Renata, and Powerone, but they occupy a small percentage of the market.
