Rising consumer awareness regarding efficient energy consumption coupled with demand for smart homes with effective load management is expected to play a major role in the development of energy storage system market. Ascending demand by electric utilities, on account of need for distributed energy integration with the main grid, is likely to fuel the growth over the forecast period.

Hybrid systems including start-stop systems, hybrid vehicles, and e-bikes are expected to present the strongest growth opportunity for lithium-ion battery manufacturers. Companies such as AES, GE Renewable, and Altairnano are investing huge capital in R&D of new technologies within the battery storage segment.

Pumped Hydro Storage (PHS) systems is expected to remain a dominant segment by 2026 due to ongoing investments to enhancing on-grid capacity and upgrading energy infrastructure in North America and Asia Pacific. The segment accounted for over 90% of the global energy storage systems capacity in 2017.
