Global Market for Advanced Batteries - Forecast, Trends & Opportunities 2014-2020
Advanced batteries or next generation batteries have become quite popular these days. Not only do next gen batteries give off lower emissions, but they also have a longer lifespan and can easily be integrated into a power grid to make an energy storage system. Such systems are reducing the electricity costs globally and are also lowering the emissions of GHGs. Advanced batteries are also being used in the transportation industry.
There are many different types of advanced batteries available today. Common factor amongst all of them is that they have a very high density of energy. Lithium and nickel-based batteries are the most common type of advanced batteries available on the market today. Application areas for these batteries range from consumer electronics to mobile phones to electric vehicles.
Having a greater cycle and operational life, advanced batteries can be remotely monitored as well. However, while these batteries have a significant number of advantages, the cost of advanced batteries still needs to come down.
The worldwide market for advanced batteries is growing at a rapid pace with the market already crossing $25 billion in 2013. The global market for advanced batteries is expected to be worth over $55 billion by the year 2020, with electric vehicles accounting for the biggest share of the market.
