Global Advanced Batteries Market: Drivers and Restraints
The advanced batteries market is driven by growing concerns about carbon emissions and increased awareness about using energy efficient devices. An increase in activities such as combustion of oil, natural gas, and coal, deforestation, and industrial activities such as cement production are responsible for the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide. This is a key factor fuelling the demand for advanced batteries. As these devices offer generation asset enhancement, grid flexibility, safety, and efficiency, the demand for advanced batteries is likely to witness a surge.
Moreover, the increasing application of advanced batteries across diverse industries has been fuelling the growth of the advanced batteries market. Advanced batteries are deployed in locomotives, lift trucks, EVs, PHEVs, and HEVs, submarines, cars, wheel chairs, trucks, buses, power tools, and toys. Portable devices such as radios, laptop computers, camcorders, mobile phones, electric watches, calculators, and flashlights use advanced batteries. In the military and aerospace sector, emergency power, munitions, communications, satellites, and robots are in-built with advanced batteries. Therefore, the wide range of application of advanced batteries will ensure expansion of the global advanced batteries market.
On the contrary, the relative high costs of advanced batteries and ambiguous regulatory frameworks might keep lid on the growth of the market. Nevertheless, significant opportunities are likely emerge from the electric vehicles segment, as several manufacturers are developing more powerful, lighter, durable, more reliable, and cheaper batteries.
Global Advanced Batteries Market: Regional Outlook
Based on geography, the global market for advanced batteries has been broadly segmented into Europe, Asia Pacific, North America, and the Rest of the World. North America, led by the U.S., is expected to exhibit considerable growth over the forecast period. With increased public investments in grid modernization and zealous carbon reduction goals, Europe has also been exhibiting a steadily rising demand for advanced batteries. Germany appears to be a promising arena for further expansion as encouragement from extensive research, technological advancements, and conferences such as the ‘Advanced Battery Power- Kraftwerk Batterie’ held in March 2017 continues to swarm in.
The region of Asia Pacific is slated to prosper to achieve significant share in the global advanced batteries market as the costs of advanced batteries are gradually going downhill. The growth in this region can be attributed to the growing demand from countries such as Japan, India, and China.
