[ 170 + Pages Research Report ]Thermal Storage Market to surpass USD 3.88 billion by 2031 from USD 2.12 billion in 2021 at a CAGR of 6.24% in the coming years, i.e., 2021-31.

Product Overview

Thermal energy storage, in the form of sensible heat, is based on the specific heat of a storage medium, which is reserved in storage tanks with high thermal insulation. The most extensively used and commercial heat storage medium is molten salt, which has a various commercial and industrial uses.

Market Highlights

Global Thermal Storage market is expected to project a notable CAGR of 6.24% in 2031.

The development of the global thermal energy storage market is backed by growing demand for electricity during peak hours, rising commercialization of CSP plants and demand for heating & cooling uses for smart infrastructure.

Global Thermal Storage Market: Segments

Thermochemical segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2021-31

Global Thermal Storage market is classified on the basis of Type into Sensible, Latent, Thermochemical, and Others. Thermal energy storage, in the form of sensible heat, is built on the specific heat of a storage medium, which is kept in storage tanks with high thermal insulation. The most extensively used and commercial heat storage medium is molten salt, which has a number of commercial and industrial applications. Moten salt shows excellent thermal properties and have been used in more than 50% of the operational thermal energy schemes to date.

Solar Energy segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2021-31

Based on Application, global Thermal Storage Market fragmented into Power Generation, District Heating & Cooling, Process Heating & Cooling, and Other. Thermal energy storage in focused solar power (CSP) plants can help in overcoming the intermittency of the solar resource and also decrease the Levelized cost of energy (LCOE) by utilizing power for extended periods of time. TES systems can gather energy during sunshine hours and store it in order to change its delivery to a later time or to facilitate plant output during cloudy weather conditions. Hence, the operation of a solar thermal power plant can be stretched beyond periods of no solar radiation without the need to burn fossil fuels. Energy storage not only decreases the mismatch between supply and demand but also enhances the performance and reliability of energy systems and plays a vital role in conserving energy.

Market Dynamics

Drivers

Rising demand of energy storage

Decarbonization of the energy segment and decreasing carbon emissions in order to cap the global climate change are some of the most hegemonic goals for governments, energy authorities, and utilities across the globe. The benefits of thermal energy storage in CSP plants include improved reliability, surge in overall efficiency, reductions in investment and running costs, and economical operations. It also reduces the emission of carbon dioxide. Thus, incorporation of thermal energy storage in CSP plants is expected to drive the market growth.

Decentralization of renewable energy sector

The distribution of decentralized renewable energy is driving a disrupting transformation of the energy sector. The swift growth of decentralized renewable energy technologies is expected to change the structure of the energy sector towards a multi-operator set-up in which large utilities interact with captive consumers and mini-utilities. For over 60% of those who gain access in rural areas, decentralized systems based on renewable energy will be the most cost-effective solution.

Restraint

Competition from battery storage and pumped-storage 

Selecting an appropriate technology ensures that the installation helps a commercial facility to consume electricity in as cost-effective way as possible. Batteries are great for offering backup power for lighting, elevators, and computers whereas thermal energy storage is a building's easiest way of decreasing peak electric demand. Air conditioning makes up a third of energy prices in summer months and it would be highly inefficient and expensive to store energy in a battery only to have it changed yet again to create instantaneous cooling. In contrast, the entire building load cannot be backed up with just thermal storage. Although, Thermal energy storage demands for lower project costs but it is less preferred over battery storage and pumped-hydro storage owing to their lower efficiency at economies of scale. Therefore, these substitutes hamper the growth of the thermal energy storage market.
