Due to thin film technology and printed electronic technology, batteries manufactured are very thin, having thickness of a few microns. Apart from being thin, these batteries are flexible and hence can be rolled or twisted according to the OEM’s requirements. Thin batteries are majorly divided into two segments; thin film batteries and printed batteries. The segmentation is done based on the different manufacturing processes and the different types of equipments used for manufacturing. Each battery type is further divided according four major market parameters such as; technology, products, applications, and geography.
Currently, commercial electronics is driving the thin battery market with its strong shipments. Most of the units are shipped for applications such as smartcards, smart labels, smart packaging application, and retail applications. Commercial segment earned the highest in the year 2011 and is expected to dominate the market till 2017.
Technology segment of the thin battery market is split in to three different segments. These three segments are substrate type segmentation, electrolyte type segmentation, and chemistry type segmentation. Currently, LIPON is the market leader, contributing more than 70%. It is followed by organic electrolyte and others. By 2017 the dominance of LIPON is expected to continue.
Product market for the thin battery is segmented into three different ways; by rechargeability, by voltage type, and by the integration type. Segmentation according to the rechargeability is critical since many applications depend on the recharging capability of the battery. In 2011, the non-rechargeable type of batteries outpaced rechargeable batteries in terms of revenue grossing. By the year 2017, the gap is expected to close down and both the types will approximately contribute similar share to the market.
Market is split into four regions; North America, Europe, APAC, and ROW. Currently, North America is leading all the regions. One of the reasons for this is the intense R&D activity in North America, particularly in the U.S. Due to the strong R&D activities; many firms in North America had the advantage of early market entrants.
The major players competing in the thin battery market are Cymbet Corporation (U.S.), Solicore, Inc. (U.S.), Blue Spark Technologies, Inc. (U.S.), Enerdel, Inc. (U.S.), Planar Energy Devices, Inc. (U.S.), Rocket Electric Co., Ltd. (South Korea), Power Paper Ltd. (Israel), and Enfucell Oy (Finland). The following graph shows global thin battery market indicating revenue, weighted ASP, and shipments. Data analysis is done from 2011 to 2017.
