Research and Markets: Thin-Film Batteries: Current and Future Markets 2009-2016 Report

DUBLIN, Ireland | Posted on May 27th, 2009

This reports examines the market potential for thin-film batteries; devices that have been available for several years, but which have yet to gain a foothold in the marketplace. It identifies the opportunities for thin-film batteries to displace coin cells and other traditional battery types and the new applications where thin-film batteries seem uniquely qualified to provide power. The report also analyzes in depth the likely impact on the market of thin-film batteries' much touted claims to safety and environmental friendliness and the degree to which thin-film power sources will be able rival traditional battery technologies.

The report discusses in depth the new materials and manufacturing technologies that will be brought to bear on the creation of thin-film batteries. It also provides an analysis of the technical and market needs of the many applications areas at which these batteries may be used, as well as profiles of several leading manufacturers of thin-film batteries. These profiles focus on each firm's product and marketing strategy, as well as how they are funding their business expansion.

The report also looks at the activities of some of the leading research groups working in this field, at the achievements to date in thin-film battery technology and also at what remains to be done, including the future role of nanomaterials. It also discusses the role of OEMs in working with the battery suppliers to integrate thin-film batteries into their sensors, RFIDs, medical devices, displays, etc. Finally, the report provides eight-year forecasts of thin-film batteries in both volume and value terms, broken out by battery chemistry and by application. This forecast takes into consideration the current recessionary environment and also includes future pricing scenarios for thin-film batteries of various kinds.
