Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers

The substantially increased demand for effective grid & load management, effective and uninterrupted power supply across industries, and the initiative by the government to adopt non-conventional and cleaner forms of energy generation will propel the market development of the global energy storage system industry. The increased emphasis on environmental protection, decrease in carbon footprint, and advancement of sustainable energy sources are other factors that have flourished the market growth for the energy storage system industry.

The increased need to address vehicular pollution has forced commuters to adopt fewer polluting vehicles like electric cars, electric buses, and electric trucks, thereby boosting the sales of energy storage systems. All of these elements have helped the market for energy storage systems to expand.


The high capital investment associated with energy storage systems and increased concern about environmental pollution will hamper the market development of the energy storage system industry. Throughout the projected period, the market expansion is anticipated to be constrained by an imbalance between the supply and demand of raw materials including cobalt, lithium, and graphite.


Due to the following factors, industry participants have a wide range of opportunities in the global energy storage system market:

  • Increased investment in a power infrastructure network
  • Development of the Electric Vehicle Sector
  • Increased investment in Grid Expansion and expansion of modern infrastructure

Geographic Overview

APAC is anticipated to have the largest market share in the energy storage system market of the increased number of engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) projects in countries like India, Japan, and China.  Furthermore, the increased adoption of smart grids will lead to increased market investment in the region for the use of energy storage systems. Nevertheless, rising sales of electric vehicles and stringent policies pertaining to pollution will further thrive the market growth in the region.

Thus, the primary drivers of the growth of the energy storage systems market in the Asia Pacific region are the rising investments in rural electrification, rising government investments in the adoption of sustainable energy sources, and rising government initiatives to incentivize the corporate sector to adopt renewable energy sources.
