Energy Storage Market
Energy Storage Market

The Global Energy Storage Market size was 191,111.4 MW in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period. The demand for energy storage systems is driven by the increasing need to reduce the dependence on oil, gas, and coal for electricity generation in order to reduce carbon emissions. In 2019, transportation and electricity generation were responsible for nearly 54% of greenhouse gas emissions in the US. As a result, nations across the globe are shifting towards renewable energy sources. However, fluctuating power requirements during different times of the day are propelling the demand for energy storage systems from renewable energy power plants. These energy storage devices store the generated energy from power plants during low energy demand and supply the energy during peak hours.

Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. Limited, Convergent Energy and Power LP, Duke Energy Corporation, Fluence Energy Inc., General Electric Company, Showa Denko, NextEra Energy Inc., NEC Energy Solutions Inc., S&C Electric Company, and Tesla Inc. are some of the key players in the market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products/technologies.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst type, the mechanical segment holds a prominent share of the energy storage market”

On the basis of type, the energy storage market is divided into mechanical, electrochemical, thermal, and chemical storage systems. Among all, mechanical storage methods hold a lucrative market share this is due to the presence of a considerable number of pumped hydro storage systems using water reservoirs. Further, compressed air energy storage is also a type of mechanical storage system and accounts for a considerable market share for energy storage systems. It stores compressed air when surplus energy is produced from wind turbines and there is less energy consumption. Compressed air energy storage involves converting electrical energy into high-pressure compressed air that can be released at a later time to drive a turbine generator to produce electricity.

“North America held a noteworthy share of the global energy storage market”

North America grabbed a significant market share as the economy, health, and safety of citizens along with national security of it depend on the reliable delivery of electricity. The region has witnessed the acceleration in the deployment of technologies that help in improving the reliability and efficiency of utility operations, including the deployment of systems and practices to better engage utility customers in the management of energy. Therefore, there has been a rise in smart grid deployment and investment in countries including the U.S., Canada, etc. For instance, the investment in smart grids rose by 41% between 2014 and 2016 from $3.4 billion to $4.8 billion annually. This investment is expected to rise to $13.8 billion by 2024. Furthermore, the high degree of renewable penetration in the region, the need for reliable and uninterrupted power supply, and the aging grid infrastructure are some of the other prominent factors contributing to the high demand for energy storage systems in the region.
