"Actionable Insights to Fuel Your Growth"
A 3D-printed battery can be defined as a battery manufactured by using metallic printed structures for applications such as supercapacitors and microfluidic devices. Over the years, there has been an advancement toward designing and fabrication of complex structures by utilizing 3D printing. 3D printing can provide a beneficial platform for the creation of low-cost 3D components for an extensive array of applications. 3D-Printing technology has found wide applications in the fabrication of electrodes for various energy storage systems such as Li-ion batteries. 3D printing technology provides a unique platform for rapid prototyping of numerous applications due to its ability to produce low-cost, 3D-printed platforms. For example, a graphene-based polylactic acid (graphene/PLA) filament has been 3D-printed to fabricate a wide range of 3D disk electrode (3DE) configurations by using the conventional RepRap FDM (fused deposition molding) 3D printer, which requires no further modification/ex-situ curing step.
Based on the architectural process, the market is segmented into graphene-based PLA filaments, graphene-based Li-ion anodes, solid-state graphene supercapacitors, platinum-based electrodes, and others. Graphene-based PLA filaments lead the market as they are majorly used in 3D-Printing technology. They are nanocomposite materials when infused with graphene can be conductive and much more durable than non-specialized filaments.
Based on the end-user, the market is segmented as energy storage devices, electronics, and others. Energy storage devices hold the market as the energy is majorly stored in the form of batteries and capacitors, which can be used in numerous applications like in mobiles, laptops, and electric vehicles. Also, storing energy in devices like batteries reduces environmental impacts like reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Based on the application, the market is segmented as wearables, smartphones, and others. Wearables lead the market as it used majorly in smartwatches and also in wearable power banks for phones followed by smartphones.
The key driver of this market is the increasing demand for powerful batteries for energy storage. The longer energy storage is required in mobile electronics to operate the mobile for a longer time. Li-ion batteries are formulated with the 3D-Printing technology and are made available in various shapes and sizes. Other factors that drive the market are growth in the electronics industry, which is boosting the need for the batteries, increasing the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT), and increasing the use of renewables for the need for energy storage.
The key market restraint for the market is polylactic acid (PLA) polymer used in the printed battery is non-ionic in nature as it does not resist high temperature. Also, the post-processing process, like mechanizing, painting, and gluing of PLA, is more complicated. The high cost of equipment that is required to take 3D printing to an industrial scale is restraining the 3D-printed battery market. Also, the lack of international standards bodies that regulate manufacturers is hindering the 3D-printed battery market
Key Market Driver -
Increasing demand for powerful batteries for energy storage.
Key Market Restraint -
Polylactic acid (PLA) polymer used in the battery printing being non-ionic in nature.
