Global Next-Generation Batteries Market to 2030

The Next-Generation Batteries Market, 2018-2030′ report features an extensive study of the current landscape and future outlook of the growing opportunities for next-generation batteries (beyond Li-ion).

The focus of this study is on advanced battery chemistries that are currently being developed/have already been developed, such as lithium polymer (LiPo) batteries, solid-state batteries, thin film batteries, printed batteries and other advanced variation of Li-ion batteries, and the likely evolution of these novel concepts in the mid to long term. Backed by funding from several venture capital firms and strategic investors, this evolving market has its hopes pinned on the efforts of a significant number of start-ups, small-and mid-sized companies.

It is estimated that, at present, more than one billion rechargeable Li-ion cells are produced each year to cater to the demands of the portable electronics market alone. However, despite their successful market deployment, excellent energy density and cost-effectiveness, certain limitations, such as concerns related to the use of liquid electrolytes (risk of leakage and flammability), have also been associated with Li-ion batteries. A case-in-point being Samsung’s massive global recall of its Galaxy Note 7 series of mobile phones in September 2016, due to the safety issues associated with the Li-ion batteries used in them.

It is also worth highlighting that a wide variety of niche and disparate application areas, such as miniature medical devices, smart wearables, wireless sensors/IoT devices, radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, powered smart cards, cosmetic patches, smart labels/packaging, electric/hybrid vehicles, and energy storage systems have surfaced in the past few years. Most of these advanced technology-enabled applications require new form factors and designs that conventional Li-ion batteries are unable to provide, pertaining to their size and safety limitations. These drawbacks have opened the door to immense innovation opportunities and added a new dimension to the competition amongst global battery developers, resulting in the establishment of next-generation battery technologies.

In contrast to the conventional Li-ion batteries, next-generation product chemistries, which include lithium polymer, printed, solid-state, thin film and ultra-thin films batteries, have been proven to be safe under abusive conditions, demonstrated significant improvements in terms of overall performance, and are environmental-friendly. Moreover, owing to their flexible form factor, it is believed that these batteries can offer virtually limitless flexibility in term of design, materials and construction.

At about 1/10th of the thickness of the thinnest prismatic liquid Li-ion cells, next-generation batteries have demonstrated significant potential to serve various upcoming markets. As a result, these batteries have captured the interest of several stakeholders in this industry; in fact, since 2010, over 7,000 patents have been published on next-generation battery technologies. It is anticipated that as the market becomes more mature, it is likely to benefit from economies of scale, resulting in further performance improvements and cost reductions.

One of the key objectives of the report was to understand the primary growth drivers and estimate the future size of the market. We have provided an informed estimate on the likely evolution of the market for the period of 2018-2030 across several potential application areas of next-generation batteries, such as consumer electronics, electric vehicles, medical devices, powered smart cards/smart labels, RFID tags, smart wearables and wireless sensors/IoT devices. In addition, on the basis of the likely usability of different next-generation battery types across aforementioned applications, we have provided the distribution of the market across various types of batteries, such as lithium polymer, printed, solid-state, thin film, ultra-thin and other types of advanced Li-ion batteries.

The forecast also includes distribution of the market opportunity across major regions of the globe, namely North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific. Considering the uncertainties related to investments and large-scale production of next generation batteries across different geographies, and to add robustness to our model, we have provided three forecast scenarios, representing the conservative, base and optimistic tracks of the market’s evolution.
