The Space Battery Market: Highlights
Batteries are used in a variety of space applications, such as satellites, launch vehicles, crew return vehicles, landers, rovers, astronomers’ equipment, and International Space Station. It may be used either as an energy storage device or as an instant source of power. Space batteries have witnessed an impactful, significant evolvement over the past five decades in which lithium-based batteries have acted as a disruptive agent. Lithium, being the lightest and the most electropositive metal, offers significant weight savings compared to traditionally used metals, such as silver and nickel. Due to this, lithium-based batteries have become a perennial choice in battery manufacturing. In an era, where the space industry is rapidly shifting towards miniaturization of spacecraft components, the demand for miniaturized space battery is also increasing.
As per Stratview Research, the global space battery market is projected to grow at a healthy rate over the next five years to reach US$ 146.1 million in 2023. Organic growth of satellite industry is the primary driver of the sustainable demand for batteries in spacecraft. One Web, a satellite constellation, has projected to launch 648 satellites in near future, which is expected to start in 2018. Space X, another satellite constellation, is working towards high-speed internet facilities across the world by deploying dedicated satellites. The company plans to launch 4,425 satellites by 2024 with an aim of deploying most of them by 2019. Such developments are likely to create high-growth opportunities for both existing as well as new players in the space battery market.
The research’s findings suggest that satellite segment is likely to remain the growth engine of the market during the forecast period. Increasing participation of private space companies, such as Space X, OneWeb Satellites, and Sky and Space Global Ltd, and an expected launch of more than 4,000 satellites during 2018-2023 would propel the demand for batteries in the satellite segment in years to come.
Based on the function type, secondary batteries segment currently dominates the market and is likely to maintain its growth momentum over the next five years as well, driven by continuous innovation towards lithium-ion chemistry. Secondary battery has significant applications in satellite platforms as it is the only source of power for the latter during eclipses. Thus, increase in number of satellites being launched into space is another significant driver of growth for this segment. Both, primary lithium and secondary Lithium-ion batteries, are poised to remain the most popular batteries in their respective segments.
In terms of the battery type, lithium-based battery is likely to remain the most preferred choice of the space industry during the forecast period, driven by the innovation towards production of highly reliable, high performing, and cost-effective technology by reducing SWaP of the battery. It is likely to exhibit the highest growth rate during the forecast period as well.
As per the study, North America is projected to remain the largest market during the forecast period, driven by the presence of major spacecraft OEMs and tier players. The USA is the growth engine of the region’s market and its space budget is highest across the world, which is almost six times the second highest country’s space budget. Europe and Asia-Pacific are also likely to offer good growth opportunities in the coming years. Europe will be driven by space investments by ESA and Russia. Asia-Pacific is likely to be the fastest-growing region, driven by a host of factors, including the emergence of India and China in the space sector, investments in small satellite projects, and an increased number of start-ups involved in space activities across the region.
Major space battery manufacturers are Saft Groupe S.A., Eagle-Picher Technologies LLC, GS Yuasa Corporation, Enersys, and Mitsubishi Electric Corporation. Key end users are NASA, Orbital ATK, European Space Agency, Lockheed Martin, ISRO, Roscosmos, Space X, JAXA etc.
