Emerging need for advanced battery technology that possesses the ability to overcome the time & energy storage disadvantages of the conventional batteries in various electric vehicle applications is expected to propel the demand for the all solid state battery market. Growing need for batteries for advanced battery with longer life span is the essential driving factor for the industry
Rapid R&D and technological innovations have led to the advent of batteries that possess the ability to power advanced compact devices & equipment. Solid state batteries are potentially long lasting and lightweight attributing to manufacturing process involving electrolyte material and the electrode. Additionally, devices having limited internal space and unique building platforms widely integrate these solid state batteries in order to enhance the efficiency of the equipment.
Increasing demand for smartphones and sensor devices incorporating the use of this technology is a significant factor governing the market for the industry. The market is expected to witness substantial growth owing to the high-performance efficiency and safety features associated with the technology which gives it an edge over liquid state batteries. The solid state batteries are largely segmented in Nice, Li Metal, NiMH Li-Ion and Lead acid batteries. Li-ion batteries are estimated to capture a sizeable market share in the rechargeable battery market. This is essentially possible owing to the longer shelf life of the batteries. Major players in the market emphasize on developing advanced solid state batteries which are good conductors of ions that are incorporated in electrolytes. This integration allows insulation for electrons the desirable in electrolytes performance.
A major challenge for the industry is the high cost associated with these batteries and ability to underperform in a low-temperature environment which may hamper the growth prospects for the industry. The increase in ionic conductivity reduces internal resistance in the battery thereby allowing the rise in power densities. The new all solid state batteries exhibit high electronic resistance that decrease the self-discharge rate, hence enhancing the charge retention property.
The thin film batteries are estimated to grow at a higher rate in the market owing to the wide scale applicability in various applications including smart cards, wearable devices, medical devices, wireless communication and packaging. These products are extensively used in devices requiring flexible, thin power sources in a limited internal storage. The electric vehicles (EV) sector is expected to gain traction over the next seven years and is foreseen to be a major segment of growth for solid state batteries. Usage of these batteries in this sector may gain avenues owing to the compact size, improved power density, cost effective feature and ability to last longer over a single charge phase.
Though the all solid state battery incorporated in the electric vehicle is at a developing and maturing phase and is anticipated to commercialize in the near future. Vendors in the industry are focusing on manufacturing portable solid state batteries which are designed essentially with solid electrolytes that contribute effectively to the throughput and performance by prolonging the life span of these batteries.The growth of solid state batteries in the North American region can be primarily attributed to the increasing demand for smart cards and packaging sectors. Also, emerging trend of electric vehicles in parts of North America is cited to catapult product demand over the forecast years.Notable players in the market are Infinite Power Solutions, Inc., (U.S), Toyota Motor Corporation (Japan), Excellatron Solid State, LLC (U.S), Cymbet Corporation (U.S), Robert Bosch GmBH (Germany) and STMicroelectronics N.V (Switzerland).
