Global energy storage market worth $2,663.2 Million in 2016

As per the research, the global market for energy storage is likely to grow from $2,663.2 million in 2016 to $26,137.0 million by 2022. With the growing adoption of energy storage in various end-user industries for grid and off-grid applications, the global energy storage market is expected to gain traction. The energy storage market offers ample growth opportunities during the forecast period on account of falling costs associated with the manufacturing of batteries, in conjugation with car manufacturers scaling up the production of electric vehicles.

Insights on market segments

As per the findings of research, the ancillary services emanated the largest demand. Front-of-the-meter has been the largest revenue generator in the global energy storage market.

Asia-Pacific stands as the largest energy storage market

Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest region in the global energy storage market, where Japan contributed to the largest revenue. Germany was the major market in Europe, whereas the U.S. contributed to the largest revenue in North America region. Africa dominated the Rest of the World market.

Growing demand for clean energy sources bolsters market growth

The factors driving the growth of the energy storage market include progress in renewable energy generation, rapidly increasing grid scale energy storage market, drop in prices of lithium-ion batteries and growing application of energy storage in various end-user industries. Rapid growth of intermittent renewable energy and its storage for smooth transmission is propelling the global energy storage market. With increasing number of projects and initiatives focusing on generating electricity through renewable resources, the energy storage market is expected to witness high growth during the forecast period.

Regulations are being planned and implemented to support the installation of grid scale energy storage for efficient transmission. Research and development initiatives focus on cutting down the costs of storage technologies to create new opportunities for storage on the grid. With an advanced and developed technology, batteries could provide load shifting services which are otherwise, provided by highly flexible, expensive natural-gas combustion turbines. EES is an effective tool that has charging/discharging capabilities. It stores electricity from local generation when they are not required and discharges it when required.

Lithium-ion batteries are the most widely used storage technology in the field of mobile and portable applications including cell phones, electric cars, laptops and others. Companies focus on developing larger format cells that can be used for energy storage applications, making it the technology of choice for the electric vehicle industry. Prices of lithium-ion batteries have declined significantly and are expected to witness further decline during the forecast period.

Energy storage application in automotive sector include the use of lead acid batteries in micro-hybrid vehicles. Lithium batteries are suited for both electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles. Demand for electrochemical storage has observed significant increase on account of its penetration in many applications and falling prices, impact of which is expected to remain high in short and long term. The increasing application of energy storage in various end-user industries including automotive, commercial and residential would further positively impact the market moderately in short term and would have a major impact in the long term.

Integration of renewable resources with increased penetration of variable generation (VG) poses as a major opportunity for the global hydrogen storage market. Electricity generation from variable generation (VG) has been gaining traction in the U.S., on account of falling prices for wind and solar generation, implementation of stringent government policies and regulations and rising concerns over burning fossil fuels.

Major players have stronghold in the global energy storage market

The research states that the global market is highly fragmented in nature, where major players constitute for the major shares in the global market. Some of the key players in the global energy storage market include Tesla Motors, Inc., AGL Energy Limited, ABB Ltd., General Electric Company, Johnson Controls International Plc, The AES Corporation, Robert Bosch GmbH, LG Chem, Ltd. and Maxwell Technologies, Inc.

Contracts and agreements have been the major recent developments in the global market. General Electric (GE) and AGL Energy Limited are some of the companies that had signed new agreements for the development of energy storage technologies across the globe.
