The global molten salt thermal energy storage market is exceptionally fragmented in nature and is expected to witness stiff competition throughout the forecast period, states a research study by Transparency Market Research (TMR). The leading players, such as Siemens AG, Acciona S.A., Pratt and Whitney Rocktdyne, Inc., SCHOTT AG, AREVA, BrightSource Energy, Inc., and Abengoa Solar S.A are currently dominating the overall market and are projected to collectively account for a key share of the market. At present, the global molten salt thermal energy storage market is at a nascent stage and hold immense growth potential throughout the forecast period. The rising number of mergers and acquisitions and the growing focus on research and development activities are estimated to contribute towards the development of the market.
As per the research study by TMR, the global market for molten salt thermal storage is estimated to reach a value of US$480.5 mn by the end of 2023. The market is likely to register a remarkable 24.70% CAGR between 2015 and 2023.
Middle East and Africa to Lead in Global Molten Salt Thermal Storage Market
From a geographical perspective, Europe led the global market in the last few years; however, this region is expected to lose its share throughout the forecast period. The Middle East and Africa is projected to lead the global molten salt thermal energy storage market throughout the forecast period. This region is estimated to account for a share of 30.7% of the overall market by the end of 2023. The rising desire to access reliable, efficient, and price competitive electricity is one of the primary factors anticipated to encourage the growth of this region in the next few years.
Asia Pacific is expected to witness substantial growth in the near future, thanks to the growing focus of key players on research and development activities and innovations. Moreover, the rising demand for molten salt thermal energy storage is likely to increase in the next few years, thanks to the large-scale projects for planned concentrated solar power plant in this region. The expansion of application base is another factor anticipated to encourage the growth of the overall market in the coming years.
Technological Developments and Innovations to Bolster Global Market
A significant growth in variable renewable energy is accepted to drive the demand for innovative molten salt thermal energy storage technologies is one of the key factors anticipated to fuel the growth of the overall market in the next few years. In addition, the deferral of transmission and frequent distribution upgrades through the deployment of these technologies are expected to accelerate the growth of the global molten salt thermal energy storage market in the coming years.
Furthermore, the de-carbonization of the power sector in the center of a rising power consumption is projected to help in accomplishing the VRE combined with advanced molten salt thermal energy storage. This factor is likely to supplement the growth of the market in the coming years.
Requirement of High Upfront Investment to Curtail Market Growth
The global market for molten salt thermal energy storage, on the other hand, is expected to witness several advantages throughout the forecast period. The high upfront investment required to set up an energy storage systems is one of the primary factors estimated to restrict the growth of the global molten salt thermal energy storage market in the next few years. Nevertheless, the increasing adoption of VREs, such as wind and solar is estimated to generate promising opportunities throughout the forecast period.
