The global battery energy storage market size was USD 7.81 billion in 2020. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with battery energy storage systems witnessing a positive demand shock across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a stellar growth of about 33.7% in 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The market is projected to grow from USD 9.21 billion in 2021 to USD 26.81 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 16.5% in the 2021-2028 period. The sudden rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

Energy is a quintessential need required to conduct daily life operations across residential, commercial, industrial, and many other verticals. Various companies and nations are continuously striving to introduce new technologies to cater to the rapidly increasing electricity needs in different sectors. Furthermore, continuously rising harmful greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions have also inclined the administrations to adopt low carbon systems to generate power. Consequently, one such majorly developing technology is battery energy storage systems (BESS) that utilize different battery chemistries to store energy to serve the excessive demand.

Disruptions in Supply Chains amid COVID-19 Pandemic to Act as a Hurdle for Market Growth

The sudden outbreak of COVID-19, or coronavirus viral infection, has impacted various nations across the globe in an unprecedented manner. The economies of different countries have been drastically impacted by the abrupt increase in the number of cases with Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Furthermore, limited global interactions to curb the spread of the deadly virus across the population have significantly hindered the global supply chain logistics, adversely impacting the market.

However, the national administrations have also implemented significant targets to propel the ‘green wave’ caused by interruptions of industrial processes favoring the industry landscape. Furthermore, numerous governments' supportive economic stimulus packages coupled with industry players' continuous efforts are set to counterbalance the demand for BESS units. For instance, in August 2020, ABB declared to join forces with Zenobē Energy Limited, a BESS manufacturer, to provide an advanced traction power solution for UK railways. The partnership aims to fabricate a 25 kilovolt (kV) rail traction power system designed to deliver output by converting power from batteries to continue an uninterrupted power supply to trains.

Introduction of New and Efficient BESS Devices to Play a Vital Role in Industry Dynamics

Different industry participants are continuously striving to initiate new organic and inorganic expansion plans to boost their product acceptability across the globe. Besides, various players are also introducing new and advanced BESS units to maintain their position across the industry. For instance, in March 2021, Tesvolt, a German storage system manufacturer, launched a novel product line known as TS-I HV 80 battery mainly fabricated to shave load peaks and comply with the demands from commercial and industrial customers.

Continuously Expanding Grid Infrastructure to Unveil New Opportunities for Industry Growth

Rapidly growing energy demand across various emerging and developed nations coupled with increasing measures to ensure energy security is set to propel the market positively. Besides, the rising integration of new power generation technologies and refurbishing existing infrastructure to boost the output is set to generate the need for new grid systems with effective backup and peak load characteristics. For instance, in June 2020, National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) Limited, an India-based independent power producer (IPP), declared its plans to deploy about 1 GWh BESS across the prevailing grid-scale generation facilities.


Growing Integration of Renewable Energy Technologies to Boost BESS Demand

Different administrations have introduced substantial targets to augment the installation of clean energy storage technologies to foster the market for battery energy storage. BESS units are readily integrated into residential, commercial, and industrial-scale solar energy and wind energy generation methods to maintain the peak power usage supply. For example, in June 2020, the energy company BP published the Statistical Review of World Energy 2020 stated the global renewable power generation was equaled at 2,805.5 Terawatt-hours (TWh) in 2019, observing around 13.7% increase from 2,468.0 TWh in 2018.

Stringent Carbon Reduction Norms and Rising Peak Energy Demand to Propel Market Size

Rapid population outbursts across nations and new initiatives to propel the electrification rate, especially in remote areas, are likely to boost the demand for BESS units. Furthermore, a favorable policy framework to boost the deployment of low carbon technologies to curb the greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint is likely to add to the industry size. For example, in April 2021, the Prime Minister of Japan announced revising its carbon emission reduction goals to 46% by 2030 from the previous target of 26%, compared to the 2013 levels.


Significant Initial Investment May Hinder the Market Pace

Large-scale battery storage facilities are equipped with a high-power BESS unit which requires a substantial amount of initial expenditure that may obstruct the industry outlook. Furthermore, the rising rate of commercialization of alternate low carbon power generation technologies such as fuel cell systems powered with hydrogen fuel pumped hydro storage projects, and carbon fiber energy storage also diverts the investments from new projects impacting the battery energy storage market growth.
