The key trends related to the product technology, prices, and the
applications that shape and influence the thin battery market are mentioned in
Specific developments of the key market players and their strategy to
acquire major market share is discussed.
Due to thin film technology and printed electronic technology, batteries
manufactured are very thin, having thickness of a few microns. Apart from
being thin, these batteries are flexible and hence can be rolled or twisted
according to the OEM's requirements. Thin batteries are majorly divided into
two segments; thin film batteries and printed batteries. The segmentation is
done based on the different manufacturing processes and the different types of
equipments used for manufacturing. Each battery type is further divided
according four major market parameters such as; technology, products,
applications, and geography.
Currently, commercial electronics is driving the thin battery market with its
strong shipments. Most of the units are shipped for applications such as
smartcards, smart labels, smart packaging application, and retail
applications. Commercial segment earned the highest in the year 2011 and is
expected to dominate the market till 2017.
Technology segment of the thin battery market is split in to three different
segments. These three segments are substrate type segmentation, electrolyte
type segmentation, and chemistry type segmentation. Currently, LIPON is the
market leader, contributing more than 70%. It is followed by organic
electrolyte and others. By 2017 the dominance of LIPON is expected to continue.
Product market for the thin battery is segmented into three different ways; by
rechargeability, by voltage type, and by the integration type. Segmentation
according to the rechargeability is critical since many applications depend on
the recharging capability of the battery. In 2011, the non-rechargeable type
of batteries outpaced rechargeable batteries in terms of revenue grossing. By
the year 2017, the gap is expected to close down and both the types will
approximately contribute similar share to the market.
Market is split into four regions; North America, Europe, APAC, and ROW.
Currently, North America is leading all the regions. One of the reasons for
this is the intense R&D activity in North America, particularly in the U.S.
Due to the strong R&D activities; many firms in North America had the
advantage of early market entrants.
The major players competing in the thin battery market are Cymbet Corporation
(U.S.), Solicore, Inc. (U.S.), Blue Spark Technologies, Inc. (U.S.), Enerdel,
Inc. (U.S.), Planar Energy Devices, Inc. (U.S.), Rocket Electric Co., Ltd.
(South Korea), Power Paper Ltd. (Israel), and Enfucell Oy (Finland). The
following graph shows global thin battery market indicating revenue, weighted
ASP, and shipments. Data analysis is done from 2011 to 2017.
The growth of the thin battery market is visible from the graph shown above.
Initially, in 2011 and 2012, the market is very less, both by value and by
volume. But post 2013, due to higher growth rate, the market is expected to
experience heavy sales.
