WORLD BATTERIES Total demand, shipments, and the regional and product-type segments are sized at five-year intervals for historical years 2006 and 2011 with a forecast to 2016. Forecasts emanate from the identification and analysis of pertinent statistical relationships and other historical trends/events as well as their expected progression/impact over the forecast period. Five-year compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) are provided to illustrate product trends between reported years and to facilitate comparisons among the various segments. Demand forecasts are the illustration of underlying trends extrapolated to a particular year. To recognize such trends and for the sake of brevity, CAGRs may be expressed as annual growth in the narrative of this report. However, as historical trends may demonstrate, demand in any given year, including a forecast year, may exhibit volatility and depart from the underlying trend. Demand in US dollars reflects local-currency inflation from period to period, including to the forecast year. Furthermore, US dollar values represent current, average-annual exchange rates between local currencies and the US dollar for the historical periods, including the base year. The forecast year, however, assumes the same exchange rate used for the base year.
