The global battery energy storage market size stood at USD 7.06 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to attain USD 19.74 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 20.4% during the forecast period.

Battery energy storage systems (BESS) are widely installed at different stages of the electricity grid to deliver secure and sustainable power when needed. The rechargeable units are used to meet the energy demands in numerous conditions such as emergency backup, and load shifting, and peak shaving, along with other grid services. The storage assembles a wide range of electrochemical batteries equipped with one or more cells having cathodes, anodes, and electrolytes to provide reliable output.

Logistical Delays in Projects & Capital Deficits amid COVID-19 to Stall Market Growth

The spread of the global viral infection termed as COVID-19 has significantly impacted different countries in various respects. Nations have implemented stringent actions such as limiting operating personnel as well as the shutdown of various operations to contain the spread of this deadly outbreak within prevailing circumstances. Consequently, various businesses have undergone severe financial stress as national economies have shrunk because of the pandemic, thereby significantly impacting the battery energy storage market growth in 2020.

Furthermore, the unfavorable scenario of limiting cross-border trade to mitigate the transfer of the virus has resulted in the unattainability of several BESS components and disrupted shipments across the globe. However, financial support and targets for renewable installations to propel the ‘green wave’ to lower emissions are likely to balance the current losses faced by the energy industry. For instance, in June 2020, the Government of Germany announced the expansion of the country’s offshore wind energy targets from the initial 15 GW to 20 GW by 2030, along with a final aim to deploy 40 GW by 2040.

Additionally, encouraging a regulatory framework to support low-carbon technologies along with a positive outlook for the electrification of distant areas is likely to augment the industry outlook further. For instance, the European Union has enforced a 2030 climate & energy framework from 2021 to 2030, with a target to diminish greenhouse gas emissions by about 40% by 2030.

Regular Efforts to Reduce BESS Costs to Drive Growth Opportunities

Various government establishments are increasingly focusing on reducing installation & operational costs associated with different solid-state batteries, including lithium-ion batteries, propelling the global energy storage market. Additionally, numerous private organizations are also joining forces to incorporate new electrochemical solutions to fight climate change problems. For example, in September 2019, The Faraday Institution, an independent energy storage research facility located in the UK, allocated around EUR 55 million to five national consortia to conduct research for modifications in battery systems, chemistries, and production procedures for improved costs & applications in grid storage and transport use.


 High Initial Costs for Installation May Obstruct Growth

Energy storage systems are fabricated with a wide range of battery units, which entail a considerable amount of initial deployment costs depending upon their working mechanisms. This complex and costly nature of operations may hinder the installation of BESS devices across different locations. Furthermore, increasing cases of fire accidents across different battery types, primarily lithium-ion batteries, also pose a challenge for the battery energy storage industry growth. However, industry participants are increasingly focusing on introducing advanced systems with better characteristics and prices to cope up with the increasing demand.
