    Schmid JV is all set to start the construction of the 3GWh Saudi Arabia flow battery factory in 2020, following the partnership with Nusaned, a Saudi Arabian investment company. The focus will be mostly on the development of the vanadium redox flow battery technology and its manufacturing across the country.

    Growth Inducers and Key Deterrents 

    The impact analysis on COVID-19 has been performed by MRFR, which reveals that the oil and gas industry can be profoundly affected by the plummeting demand and the crashing prices of power worldwide. Taking into account the long-term impact of COVID-19, most of the leading companies are presently working on bringing down the costs of protecting their assets, and are also putting in efforts to ensure uninterrupted operations to control the revenue loss. While the world is busy trying to achieve a COVID-19 breakthrough, the lockdown situation has managed to restrain the movement of materials across energy and power plants. The short term impact in line with the current lockdown situation has led to a massive decline in the investment capacity along with a drop in power prices in the face of political uncertainty, suggests the COVID-19 analysis by MRFR.

    Flow batteries are reliable components that are extensively used to store energy. In the wake of increasing technological innovations, there has been a notable shift towards renewable energy as well as its storage devices. The trends are projected to favor the flow battery market in the coming years. Also, economic growth in conjunction with the rising number of infrastructure projects could boost the demand for storage devices, leading to better market growth flow batteries in the approaching years.

    The ongoing research and development activities to facilitate technical development are expected to bring down the cost and also address the needs of various other industries. This could mean excellent business prospects for the flow batteries market, with the increasing preference for storage systems like lithium-ion batteries. The demand for flow batteries can also surge since electrolyte accounts for close to one-third of the total battery cost. Further, partnerships between renowned companies can also be instrumental in facilitating production scalability and boosting consumer reach within the flow batteries industry. Players are constantly entering into supply chain agreements in an attempt to develop a highly integrated supply chain network with respect to distribution, sale as well as manufacturing of flow batteries.

    Regional Study 

    The study comprises estimation of the flow battery market size across primary regions of Europe, MEA or the Middle East and Africa, North America and APAC or Asia Pacific.

    As of 2017, the most successful market for flow battery had been North America and it is expected that the region can very well maintain its winning streak throughout the conjectured period. More and more private customers are striving to curb energy costs, which has resulted in the introduction of a number of residential storage solutions. Commercial and residential properties are increasingly deploying energy storage within their building plans, which can induce growth of the flow battery market. The rising energy cost is also leading to higher spending on technologies that are more affordable and efficient; as a result of which the energy storage technology is now a sought after commodity in the residential sector. This factor can be an emerging opportunity that can boost the flow battery market share across North America. Post SARS-CoV-2 outbreak, the regional market has faced a mild roadblock. But, given the expansive industrial base and strong financial status, there is a strong possibility of rapid recovery in the coming years.

    Emerging countries such as India, Japan and China in the APAC market are constantly modifying their energy policies to ensure that a substantial portion of the energy generated comes from renewable energy resources like solar and wind. The growing interest in renewable energy sources in light of the deteriorating environmental health is a prevalent trend that can benefit the glow battery market. Financial backing from the government and rising investments in development of flow battery can be a notable growth inducer in the regional market, despite the economic loss induced by the corona pandemic.

    Market Segmentation 

    As per the flow battery market forecast by MRFR, the primary segments listed in the report are product type, material type, storage type and application. 

    Redox and hybrid are the primary product types discussed in the market review. Redox is the dominant segment in the market, given its reliability and flexibility in energy storage applications across grid operations and power stations.

    The material types covered in the study include vanadium as well as zinc-bromine. 

    Storage types analyzed in the report are large scale and compact. Industrial and commercial utilities make extensive use of large-scale storage devices as they are highly efficient when used in a variety of operations. 

    The applications of flow batteries include utilities, defense, industrial & commercial segments, and others. The lead has been claimed by the commercial segment and can even attain the fastest expansion rate in the years to come. 


    Prominent Competitors 

    Prominent competitors in the flow battery industry include Redflow Limited (Australia), Schmid (Germany), ViZn Energy Systems. (US), EnSync Energy Systems (US), Primus Power (US), Elestor (Europe), redT energy plc. (UK), Gildemeister Energy Solutions (Austria), ESS Inc. (US), Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd. (Japan), to list a few.
