Global Nuclear Microbatteries Market: Introduction
- Nuclear microbatteries are micro- or nano-scale batteries powered by using radioactive isotopes, which can store energy in large amounts in a compact space
- Radioactive particles with nuclear energy are converted into electric energy, which is employed to power processors. This conversion is based on the principle of the beta voltaic effect or electron voltaic effect.
Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Nuclear Microbatteries Market
- Demand for supply of small, reliable, and compact form of energy to consumer electronic devices as well as micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) devices has risen over the years. Nanotechnology and MEMS have gained rapid adoption over the last decade, with various types of microdevices being developed. Thus, the demand for nuclear microbatteries is increasing continuously. This is a major factor driving the global nuclear microbatteries market.
- Increasing demand for smart as well as power-efficient batteries from consumers and high adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) by various industry verticals are expected to be other driving factors for the global nuclear microbatteries market during the forecast period
- Furthermore, increase in the usage of batteries in the automotive industry is creating immense opportunities for the global nuclear micro batteries market
- High initial costs as well as high maintenance costs of nuclear microbatteries is a factor likely to hinder the global nuclear microbatteries market during the forecast period
Military and Underwater Sea Probes & Sensors Segment to Witness Attractive Opportunities
