Market Segmentation


Flow Battery Global Market


A flow battery is a type of rechargeable battery with two chemical components submerged in liquid and most commonly separated by an ion-selective membrane. During charging or discharging the membrane allows selected ions to pass and complete the chemical reaction.  The chemical components of flow batteries are easy to replace, making these batteries preferable to lead-acid, lithium-ion, or solid-state batteries. Flow batteries are reliable and are used for efficient energy storage. Presently, due to technological developments, there is a tremendous move towards renewable energy and its storage devices. Such trends are expected to drive the flow battery market during the forecast period. There will be substantial growth because of economic development and the number of infrastructure projects, which increase the demand for storage devices.


Global flow battery market is projected to witness very high growth during the forecast period due to the feature of flow batteries such as safety of storing the active materials separated from the reactive point source, fast response time, high electricity-to-electricity conversion capability, low-maintenance, tolerance to overcharge and over discharge.
