WinterGreen Research announces that it has published a new study Thin Film Batteries: Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2015 to 2021. The 2015 study has 329 pages, 110 tables and figures. Thin Film Batteries offer quality for powering implantable medical devices, hearing aids, RFID tags, and wearable electronics.

Thin film battery market driving forces include creating business inflection by delivering technology that supports entirely new capabilities. Sensor networks are creating demand for thin film solid state devices. Vendors doubled revenue and almost tripled production volume from first quarter. Multiple customers are moving into production with innovative products after successful trials.

A strong business pipeline has emerged with customer activity in all target markets. The market focus is shifting from ramping capacity to driving manufacturing efficiencies and achieving margin improvement, indicating increasing market maturity.

The quality of energy storage is better with thin film batteries. Thin Film Batteries A comparison of battery performance for various rechargeable batteries is a compelling illustration of the value of thin film batteries. Data for thin film batteries using very thin substrates illustrate the longer cycle life that can be achieved. Applications include power bridging, permanent power, and wireless sensor networks.
