Segmental Analysis

The global next-generation advanced battery market is segmented by technology and end-user.

Based on technology, the global next-generation advanced battery market is segmented into solid electrolyte batteries, magnesium ion batteries, next-generation flow batteries, metal-air batteries, lithium-sulfur batteries, and other technologies. 

The metal-air battery segment owns the highest market share and is expected to expand substantially during the forecast period. Metal–air batteries are a part of primary and secondary cells. In metal-air batteries, the positive electrode is usually carbon-based with some precious metals for reacting with oxygen and other gases. The other electrode is made of a metal like zinc/aluminum/magnesium/lithium. These batteries are occasionally referred to as fuel cells due to the airflow within the cell. A particular type of metal-air battery is an iron–air secondary battery, which has been investigated as a candidate for the energy source of electric vehicles (EVs). In addition, battery suppliers such as Matsushita, Westinghouse, and Swedish National Development fabricated large-scale pilot cells during the 1980s. The cell's specific energy was as high as 75 Wh/kg, which is too low to be used for the practical cell. This involves a positive electrode catalyst and electrolyte, which are not considered in a theoretical system.

Flow batteries, which utilize electrolyte tanks capable of storing sufficient energy to power tens of thousands of homes for several hours, could be the answer to accelerating the expansion of the renewable energy market. However, most flow batteries rely on vanadium, a rare and expensive metal, and its alternatives are usually short-lived and toxic. The next generation of flow batteries is supposed to address these problems. These batteries store electrical charge in tanks of liquid electrolytes that are pumped through electrodes to extract the electrons; the used electrolyte is then returned to the tank. The electrolyte is recycled through the electrodes and back into the storage tank via pumps whenever electricity is supplied. However, the process would require scaling up the batteries to store more power, requiring bigger electrolyte tanks.

Based on end-users, the global next-generation advanced battery market is bifurcated into consumer electronics, transportation, industrial, energy storage, and other end-users. 

The transportation segment dominates the global market and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.44% over the forecast period.
