The global grid-scale battery market is predicted to grow at 31.8% CAGR during the forecast period with the market size reaching USD 7.8 billion by 2024 from USD 1.1 billion in 2017. The market is driven by the factors such as the declining grid-scale battery cost, increasing investment in renewable energy across the globe, increasing support for renewable energy, and government initiatives for energy efficiency. However, some of the environmental applications and durability concern of these batteries in extreme weather conditions are anticipated to hinder the growth of the maret to some extent.
Different types of grid-scale batteries are lead acid battery, flow battery, lithium-ion battery, sodium-based battery, and others. Lithium-ion battery hold the largest share in the market due to its superior properties such as high power and energy density, lightweight as compared to other batteries such as nickel-cadmium and nickel metal-hydride batteries and high shelf life of these batteries.
Based on application, the grid-scale battery market is segmented into peak shift, ancillary services, renewable integration, back-up power, and others. Others include ramping, microgrids, black start, and transmission/distribution upgrade deferral. Renewable integration is the largest application area in the market and also anticipated to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. Some of the factors attributed to the market growth are security and resiliency from microgrid applications, increased reliability, energy efficiency, attainment of renewable targets, and others.
