Top 5 Vendors in the Global Off-Grid Energy Storage System Market From 2016 to 2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global off-grid energy storage system market report. This research report also lists 11 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Collective efforts taken by developing economies to use renewable sources over fossil fuel to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are expected to drive the global off-grid energy storage system market during the forecast period.

The market share of lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period. These batteries offer more than double the service life of lead-acid batteries (LAB). In addition, they require low maintenance and are lightweight and compact. Due to these advantages Li-ion batteries are preferred in off-grid energy storage systems.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global off-grid energy storage system market is characterized by the presence of a large number of global, regional, and local vendors. These vendors provide high-tech, highly customized batteries for battery energy storage. The high market growth rate of the off-grid storage system market is expected to attract many vendors worldwide. In addition, many global vendors are expected to increase the competition with their enhanced Li-ion, sodium-sulfur, and advanced LAB products during the forecast period.

The market also comprises many small-scale manufacturers that produce and sell batteries. Large players with diversified business operations can manage their profitability during the volatile demand for batteries because revenues from other sources offset the decline in battery revenues,” says Thanikachalam Chandrasekaran, a lead energy storage analyst from Technavio.

As a result, though many vendors enter the market to tap the large customer base, only a few players that manage their sales, distribution, and working capital effectively survive and continue their operations.
