COVID-19 Impact Analysis

COVID-19 has had a huge impact on the global economy as well as all industries. Lockdowns have been established by governments around the world to curb the spread of the pandemic. In addition, people's livelihoods and quality of life were badly disrupted by the complete global lockdown in the early stages of the pandemic in several countries. As a result, there have been supply chain disruptions all across the world. A dramatic reduction in product demand has harmed the economies of the world. Due to the pandemic, which resulted in a shortage of raw materials, production across industries has been hampered. A drop in exports and supply chain disruptions are two main factors contributing to the output fall.

Market driving Factors:

Large-scale grid modernization and growing rural electrification projects around the globe

The most common renewable energy kinds that are stored in grids are solar and wind energy. However, when the sun is obscured by clouds or by changing wind currents, the energy generation process is disrupted. Such fluctuations necessitate the use of flexible grid energy storage systems. Grid modernization is increasingly using battery energy storage technology. When the amount of electricity generated exceeds the amount of electricity required, these solutions assist grid operators in saving electricity. In addition, the implementation of these technologies increases the electrical supply systems' reliability and flexibility in terms of electric power generation, transmission, and distribution.

The advent of innovative solutions and constant expansion in grid infrastructure

Various industry players are constantly attempting to launch fresh organic and inorganic expansion plans in order to improve their product acceptability around the world. Moreover, to preserve their position in the sector, several firms are introducing new and sophisticated battery energy storage systems units. For example, Tesvolt, a German storage system manufacturer, introduced the TS-I HV 80 battery in March 2021, which was designed to reduce load peaks and meet the expectations of commercial and industrial customers. Some of the key trends of the market are rapidly rising energy consumption in both emerging and developed countries, as well as increased steps to assure energy security.

Marketing Restraining Factor:

Installation of battery energy storage devices necessitates a significant capital outlay

Because of the high energy density and higher performance given by battery energy storage technologies like lithium-ion batteries, flow batteries, and lead-acid batteries, increased installation investments are required. In addition, Lithium-ion batteries are more expensive than other types of batteries because they have a higher energy density, a lower rate of self-discharge, and need less maintenance. Lithium-ion batteries, on the other hand, are likely to become less expensive in the future. Because they are lightweight and compact, as well as having a huge capacity, these batteries are also employed in electric vehicles (EVs). Aside from that, the high initial investment cost necessary to manufacture flow batteries could be a major barrier for the market.

For example, NTPC Renewable Energy Limited has issued a request for proposals to construct interstate transmission system (ISTS) connected energy storage solutions with a total capacity of 500 MW and 3,000 MWh anywhere in India. Moreover, the renewable energy produced by NTPC REL from any of its projects would be used to charge the energy storage system. NTPC REL would use the energy storage facility to fulfill its round-the-clock renewable power needs during peak and off-peak hours on an on-demand basis.

Connection type Outlook

Based on Connection type, the market is segmented into On-grid, and Off-grid. The Off-grid segment collected a significant revenue share of the Battery Energy Storage System Market in 2020. This is because Off-grid applications are well-suited to battery energy storage. In such circumstances, the possibilities are essentially endless including isolated mines, communication/industrial locations, or residential regions. Moreover, Off-grid renewable energy storage is mainly utilized for lighting and charging solutions, solar power-based home systems in rural areas, or roof-top solar applications in urban areas.

Application Outlook

Based on Application, the market is segmented into Utility, Commercial, and Residential. In 2020, the Utility segment procured the maximum revenue share of the Battery Energy Storage System Market. The rising demand for battery energy storage systems in the utility sector is due to the growing demand for a dependable and efficient supply of electricity in most locations, as well as the expanding requirement for renewable energy. The requirement to fulfill peak electricity demands is a major driver of the utility sector's expansion. In the event of an unexpected fluctuation in the energy supply, the utility BESS offers power quality, frequency, and voltage control services. When there is an excess of renewable energy, grid operators can save electricity by using battery energy storage systems. Because of the technical advantages and declining costs of energy storage systems, demand for energy storage systems in the utility sector is likely to grow in the future.
