Thin-Film Battery Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023
The global thin-film battery market was worth US$ 302 Million in 2017. Thin-film batteries are solid-state batteries which implies that they use both solid electrodes and a solid electrolyte. These batteries are very distinctive when compared to other batteries as they are just a few hundred nanometers thick. Thin-film batteries contains a cathode and an anode along with an electrolyte and separator between the two just like any other conventional battery. They are thin in comparison to other batteries that are available in the market. The electrode material used in these batteries is layered which implies that there is no need to add layers during the construction of the battery. The electrodes improve the overall performance of the battery and also increases its ability to function in different ranges which make thin-film batteries highly compatible to be used in different applications. Additionally, these batteries come with a great number of benefits, like they leave smaller footprints, are lower in cost, have high energy density, and are light in weight. The flat shape of thin-film batteries makes them more compatible with emerging technologies.
The thin-film battery market is exhibiting strong growth catalyzed by a rapid rise in the use of smartphones, tablets, and other electronic devices. With consumers being more technology-friendly, the demand for such electronic devices is witnessing robust growth. The steady increase in the usage of devices like smartwatch and fitness bands is making the consumption of thin-film batteries even more appropriate. Additionally, thin-film batteries are flat-shaped and are perfect to be incorporated in smaller and thinner devices which further enhances their demand in the market. Being reliable, inexpensive, and smaller in size these batteries can be easily incorporated in our day to day wearable electronic devices. Thin-film batteries have a great battery backup and are thus appropriate for smart computing as well. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 1,060 Million by 2023, expanding at a CAGR of 23.3% during 2018-2023.
