Thin Film and Printed Battery Market Analysis

Thin film batteries are being increasingly used in fitness bands, smartwatches, headsets, and other wearable electronic devices because of their improved recharge rate and small size. Also, the growing adoption of 5G is raising the demand for connected electronic devices. In addition, the increasing use of smart cards, such as EMV chip card technology, is propelling the demand for thin film and printed batteries worldwide. As smart cards are created at high temperatures of 130–150 degrees Celsius which degrades the organic content of ordinary batteries and prevents them from functioning, the demand for thin film and printed batteries is increasing for the production of smart cards. Furthermore, the growing miniaturization of electronic devices is expected to create growth opportunities for the thin film and printed battery market during the forecast period.

Thin Film and Printed Battery Market Overview

Thin film batteries are solid-state batteries that range in size from nano to millimeters. They consist of an anode, a cathode, an electrolyte, and a separator. Thin film lithium-ion batteries perform better than regular lithium-ion batteries due to their higher average output voltage, lower weight, higher energy density, longer cycling life, and ability to function at temperatures ranging from -20°C to 60°C. These batteries are utilized in a variety of applications, including smart cards, wireless sensors, laptops, touch screens, astronomical mirrors, RFID tags, photovoltaic energy generation and storage, and implantable devices.

Thin Film and Printed Battery Market Drivers and Opportunities

Emergence of 5G Drives Thin Film and Printed Battery Market Growth

The 5G network is ∼100 times faster than the 4G network, making real-time data acquisition easier. As the 5G network provides strong connectivity and high-speed data transfer, its demand is increasing worldwide. According to the Groupe Speciale Mobile Association (GSMA), 5G penetration globally is expected to reach 54% by 2030 from 17% in 2022. North America recorded the highest 5G penetration, with 39% in 2022; it is expected to reach 91% by 2030. 5G penetration in Asia Pacific (except China) and Europe is expected to increase from 4% and 11% in 2022 to 41% and 87% by 2030, respectively. As 5G is the critical new-generation network technology that can enable innovation and support digital transformation, its demand is increasing worldwide. Therefore, the governments of various countries are investing in 5G infrastructure. In July 2021, the Government of France announced its plan to invest ~US$ 2.06 billion (EUR 1.7 billion) in its 5G market by 2025 via public and private investments. Through this, the government aims to accelerate the development of 5G in the country. Similarly, in January 2021, the Government of South Korea announced that it would increase the coverage of the next-generation mobile networks, particularly 5G, to 85 cities this year from the current seven major cities. It invested ~US$ 115.89 million (KRW 127.9 billion) in 2021 to encourage the use of private 5G networks. With the growing adoption of 5G worldwide, the demand for connected electronic devices is increasing, propelling the thin film and printed battery market growth.

Continuous Research and Development

Due to the rise in focus on sustainability, the researchers are concentrating on developing efficient battery technology that can be manufactured in an eco-friendly way with features such as enhanced safety, faster charging times, tolerance to high temperatures, and fireproofing. They are emphasizing not using any toxic solvents during the production process of thin filmed and printed batteries. In addition, they are more focused on developing batteries that are more efficient than lithium-ion batteries. Therefore, they are looking for investors who can provide the required funds for the R&D of such batteries. They plan to launch them in the market to cater to the demand for efficient battery solutions for its applications, such as wearable devices, smart cards, electronics, and RFID tags. For example, in September 2023, BTRY, a spin-off from the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (Empa) based in the canton of Zurich, announced its plans to drive the coming generation of battery technology forward with an innovative thin film battery. Empa researchers developed a solid-state battery based on lithium metal. With this, they can stack the thin-film cells on top of each other to enhance storage capacity.

The manufacturing process is decided on the basis of the vacuum coating used in the production of semiconductor chips. Further, BTRY is looking for investors for administrative and technical improvements to bring the technology to market. This includes making the battery prototypes larger and more powerful. Thus, such research and development for the advanced battery solution is expected to contribute to its launch, which further creates the opportunity for the thin film and printed battery market growth with its wide adoption.
