Global Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage Market: Snapshot

Led by only a few established companies, the global market for superconducting magnetic energy storage demonstrates a highly competitive structure. The significant increase in investments and the continual introduction of novel technologies by the leading players are influencing the growth of this market greatly. At present, the market displays volatility and is highly impacted by the frequent changes in the government rules and policies related to environment. Vendors of superconducting magnetic energy storage devices are constantly making efforts to improve their product portfolio by adding technologically advanced products in order to sustain and gain a competitive advantage over rival companies.

With the increasing need for energy storage, this market is likely to flourish remarkably in the years to come. Since distributed energy systems are highly beneficial to end users, they are increasingly utilized to meet the consumer demand for power. These storage systems, primarily manufacture using low temperature superconductors or high temperature superconductors, find a widespread application in low-energy storage and high-energy storage. These energy storage solutions, with the capability to store massive amounts of energy, normally have slow reaction time. Small energy storage devices, on the flip side, have rather fast reaction times and an ability to recharge in a shorter period.

Global Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES) Market: Overview

Energy storage is crucial for providing flexibility and stability that is critical for the effective functioning of electricity grid. With the booming demand for electricity from end users, the need for energy storage in the power sector is also increasing. As the need for energy storage is increasing, the global superconducting magnetic energy storage (SMES) market is expected to grow along with it. An SMES system has the ability to recharge and discharge in a shorter period without degrading the magnet and ensuring minimum energy losses. Therefore, it is being increasingly acknowledged for short duration energy storage applications.
