High Growth Industry that Most Investors are Overlooking Part 2

Global Space and Aerospace Battery Market and Technology Research Report 2022

DUBLIN, June 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Batteries for Space and Aerospace - Market and Technology Forecast to 2030" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Global Space and Aerospace Battery markets will reach US$10.11 billion through 2030 from US$4.09 billion in 2022. And the energy requirement for space and aerospace applications will rise to 28.09 million kWh in 2030 from 9.09 million kWh in 2022.

Space and Aerospace batteries are becoming an important part of space missions, airborne remote sensing programs, and defense and security applications.

This study offers a detailed analysis of the global Space and Aerospace Battery system market over the next eight years, and provides market size forecasts. Furthermore, it covers key technological and market trends in the industry and analyses factors influencing demand for Space and Aerospace Battery systems.

The availability of different battery chemistries in all ranges of energy densities has created ample scope and opportunities for Space and Aerospace batteries worldwide. By 2030, the Space and Aerospace battery business in the world will flourish in almost all types of end-use applications.

Various chemistries in Lithium-ion and upcoming combinations of lithium with sulphur and silicon are inviting more scope for high-energy density batteries to the markets. Solid-state batteries have also made headway and soon will become part of mainstream markets.

Many Space and Aerospace Battery system developers and manufacturers struggle with the scalability of the business and marketing network. Acquisition of manufacturing sites, development of skilled technical supply chain is increasing in the past few years.

Today, majority of battery manufacturers are focusing on developing batteries for electrical vehicles. Which will help space and aerospace batteries in terms of getting safe, high-energy density and longer life cycle batteries.

Going further in the next ten years there are many satellite launches planned worldwide, many new aircraft especially UAVs will generate demand. HAPS (High-Altitude Pseudo-Satellite) and Airtaxis will become a mainstream business. We could see more of such trends in the markets.

The business is going to be huge and will expand in many countries and applications. The fear is the supply could face challenges mostly due to lack of capital or lack of ability to scale the business.
