Flow Battery Market - Overview

Flow battery has been emerging as a potential alternative to the conventional batteries and fuel cells with their viability to operate for a long duration. They have a significantly lesser recharging time and possess relatively better flexibility than solid batteries. Being liquid in nature, their energy storage capacity can be expanded by adding electrolyte in a high amount in the tank, which makes them suitable for utility applications. The adoption rate of flow battery has been growing at a considerable pace as they are less expensive than their traditional substitutes. This has further increased their deployment rate for ensuring the continuous supply of energy in new wind turbines and solar panels.

In 2018, sales of the flow battery exceeded a value of US$ 235 Mn and are anticipated to grow at a robust CAGR in the forthcoming years. A sizeable share of the flow battery market ascends from the hefty investments made in renewable energy like Solar energy and Wind energy. With the realization of the benefits of renewable energy sources over the non-renewable source, the energy suppliers have been foraying into the vicinity to expand, upgrade, and modernize their energy systems. Since the new energy generating sources experience fluctuations, flow batteries have been incorporated for ensuring voltage support and frequency regulations to the grid, which is anticipated to drive lucrative growth prospects to the flow battery market in the upcoming years.
