The battery energy storage system market on the basis of battery type is segmented into advanced-lead acid batteries, flow batteries, lithium-ion batteries, and sodium-sulfur (NAS) batteries among others. The lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) are currently used in a majority of BEVs and PHEVs, and it is likely that they would continue to lead throughout the next decade. Furthermore, the increasing advancement in flow batteries which are considered safer than lithium-ion batteries are expected to support the growth of battery energy storage system.
The flow batteries can resist greater temperatures and periods of idleness, which makes them suitable for storing and releasing renewable energy such as that from solar panels and wind turbines. The most popular flow batteries include vanadium redox flow battery and hybrid flow batteries which include zinc-bromine, zinc-cerium, and lead-acid among others. These factors are driving the growth of the market for battery energy storage system based on the flow battery technology.
The APAC region offers potential growth opportunities as there is a rise in the adoption of battery energy storage system owing to the attractive residential sector. Some of the major battery energy storage system developers located in Asia-Pacific are Samsung SDI (South Korea), LG Chem. (South Korea), Hitachi ltd (Japan), Panasonic Corporation (Japan), and NEC Corporation (Japan).
The requirement of high investment acts as major restraining factor for the battery energy storage system market. In the market, LG Chem Ltd. is considered to be a leading provider of lithium-ion batteries. It offers products mainly for the battery segment. LG Chem. has won the world’s hig
