This market research study identifies Primus Power, redT energy, UniEnergy Technologies, VanadiumCorp Resource, and Vionx Energy as the leading players in the global flow battery market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by values, forecasting, worth, trends, opportunities, segmentation by battery type (redox battery, hybrid battery, and others) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).


In the recent years, Li-ion batteries have become the extensively used batteries over other battery technologies and Lithium iron phosphate battery is the most commonly used Li-ion battery. However, lithium iron phosphate batteries exhibit low economic output post recycling. Additionally, the recycling of lithium iron phosphate batteries is also more expensive than the production of a new battery. Technavio’s market research analysis has identified the rising concerns over the recycling of Li-ion battery as one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the on the global flow battery market. This is compelling consumers to adopt flow batteries over other battery technologies since they do not require recycling but only requires the electrolyte solution to be changed. For instance, vanadium flow batteries do not degrade over time and can last much longer than other batteries. Such benefits will drive the demand for flow batteries in the coming years and Technavio’s market research analysts predict that this market will grow at a CAGR of more than 9% by 2021.

Flow batteries such as vanadium redox batteries are gaining popularity over other energy storage technologies due to its ease of adaptability. The energy capacity of  vanadium redox battery depends on the size of the external storage tank, while its power capacity depends on electrodes. They are used for various applications since the liquid electrolyte enables the battery to meet specific requirements. Flow batteries are extensively used in electric vehicle charging stations and the utility sector. According to our analysts, the widening scope for the application of vanadium redox flow battery will be one of the key trends that will gain traction in the flow battery market during the forecast period.
