Grid Scale Battery Segmentation

Type (Lithium-Ion, Lead Acid, Flow Battery, Sodium-Based)

The global grid scale battery market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by type into lithium-ion, lead acid, flow battery, and sodium-based. Out of these types, the lithium-ion segment is estimated to gain the largest market share over the projected time frame. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the efficiency of the batteries to store energy for more than 30 minutes to 3 hours. Also, the high utilization of lithium-ion battery in various sectors is estimated to drive market growth. The replacement of cobalt with lithium-ion in batteries is also expected to propel market growth. The growth of the market is attributed to the increasing use of these batteries in many electronic devices and consumer electronics. Consumer electronics are increasing day by day with the rising disposable income of people across the world. More than 90% of U.S. respondents are using consumer electronics such as smartphones.

Application (Frequency Regulation, Peak Shaving, Bill Management, Load Shifting, Renewable Integration)

The global grid scale battery market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into frequency regulation, peak shaving, bill management, load shifting, renewable integration, and others. Amongst these segments, the renewable integration segment is expected to garner a significant share.
