Utilization of Smart Electronic Devices to Boost the Market Growth
The adoption of consumer electronics and smart devices has increased dramatically over the past decade. This has led manufacturers to adopt a “push” strategy, in which much smart electronic equipment is pushed into the market so that consumers can make purchases easily.
Manufacturers focus on delivering connected devices as the popularity of smart and connected products and the adoption of IoT devices. Technological advances and the introduction of the wireless network led to the development of intelligent and connected tools. The production of smart and wirelessly connected devices, which use a battery to power their products, is growing steadily. This is anticipated to create favorable opportunities for market expansion over the study period.
Increase in Outdoor and Camping Activities to Drive the Product Demand in Forecast Period
There is an ascent in sporting and camp exercises such as fishing and climbing across the world. For instance, according to the 2021 North American Camping Report, the number of camping households who camped at least once in 2020 stood at 48.2 million and active households in the U.S. were 86.1 million, which saw a rise of 20.41% from 71.5 million in 2014.
By generation, camping experience was highest among the millennials (44%), followed by Gen X (46%), and Gen Z (32%). In Australia, individuals visiting lodgings, inns, and resorts represented 24%, and individuals opting for caravans and camps represented 14%. As per Eurostat, 66% of European camping areas are situated in 5 nations - the U.K., France, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands. In 2017, guests spent USD 397 million to set up camping evenings across camping areas in the EU.
Reduction in Lithium-ion Batteries Cost to Augment the Product Demand in Forecast Period
Global governments are moving toward a low-carbon energy system to decrease global greenhouse gas emissions. Renewable energies such as solar and wind are becoming cost-effective when compared to fossil fuels. However, low-cost energy storage is needed to balance these sources and transform the transportation network.
Lithium-ion is the most common type of battery. These batteries have gained popularity as the main source of power for portable power storage devices and more units are being produced annually for their useful properties. Battery increase demand, particularly from consumer devices, has historically fueled the lithium market, which has seen its price fall in the past years.
As per research from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in March 2021, the cost of these batteries has fallen by 97%, making energy storage commercially viable for the first time. A lithium-ion battery consists of several different parts, among which the cell is the most expensive part of any lithium-ion battery followed by electronics, assembly, and packaging.
Low Functional Ability of the Product to Hinder Market Growth in Forecast Period
A portable power station is a portable battery-powered portable power stations power supply that does not have a wide range of functional capabilities such as those of compact diesel generators. Portable fuel generators can power camping areas and sports vehicles, whether a troop, RV (recreational vehicle), or campervan.
A continuous and reliable power supply is essential for controlling energy-intensive appliances such as water heaters, satellite T.V.s, internet switches, coolers, telephones, and workstations. Portable generators can power microwaves, fans, electric pots, and toaster ovens. In contrast, a portable or mobile power station cannot be used similarly for additional power capacity and load.

500 Wh to 1,499 Wh Capacity Segment Share to Rise Due to Long Battery Life
Based on capacity, the market segmented into 500 Wh to 1,499 Wh, less than 500 Wh, and 1,500 Wh and above. The 500Wh to 1,499Wh segment held the largest portable power station market share in 2022 and is anticipated to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast timeframe, owing to its long battery life and usage in various applications, including off-grid power.
Capacity plays an important part in how long a battery-powered power station lasts. Portable power stations with larger battery banks will last longer. If you tie the power station into a solar array, you have an almost infinite capacity as long as the sun shines. A small charger might charge the phone one time, while a larger one might charge the phone several times before it needs to be recharged.
Growth of Renewable Technologies to Power Hybrid System to Augment Segment Growth
Based on power source, the market is segmented into hybrid power and single power source. The hybrid power segment is expected to account for the largest share in the market over the estimated period.
Hybrid systems combine two or more types of electricity generation, commonly using renewable technologies such as wind turbines and solar photovoltaics. Hybrid systems offer a high level of energy security through the combination of production processes. They often integrate a storage system such as a battery and fuel cell to ensure optimum, secure, and reliable supply.
Emergency/Backup Power to Emerge as Significant Application Owing to Increased Outdoor Recreational Activities
By application, the market is trifurcated into off-grid power, emergency/backup, and others. The off-grid power segment dominated the market owing to increased outdoor recreational and camping activities worldwide. Moreover, the emergency/backup segment also accounted for a significant share in the market. The emergency/ backup segment includes the charging of devices such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops during network and power failures. Increasing power outages due to extreme conditions such as earthquakes, storms, and lightning are likely to increase demand for portable power plants for backup power applications.
