Advanced battery technologies for transportation and stationary energy storage have quickly evolved in recent years to prioritize performance and cost. Each storage application requires unique needs that have led to battery markets experiencing rapid developments in terms of chemistry and composition. Outside forces such as global supply chains have also heavily influenced what chemistries remain viable in the midst of accelerating adoption trends for EVs and energy storage systems (ESSs).
Battery chemistries are increasingly influencing market trends due to the diversity of chemistry options advancing through commercialization phases. For example, some chemistries are more attractive for one application over another and depending on the demand for that application, may become more popular in the future. Focus on supply chains is also increasing as many battery manufacturers are moving away from chemistries that use expensive components that are scarce. Stakeholders such as US policymakers are diverting resources to the battery supply chain to analyze the country's competitiveness among other leading powers.
This ‘Guidehouse Insights report’ takes a close look at the market trends surrounding battery chemistries, analyzes the different forces of the battery value chain, and concludes with recommendations for stakeholders. Battery chemistry trends can be highly susceptible to global raw material supplies and regulatory oversight, therefore the market dynamics around both of these issues should receive special attention.
