Global Thermal Energy Storage Market to Grow at 8.7% During 2024-2032, Impelled by the Increasing Demand for Renewable Energy Sources

January 21, 2022 | Energy & Mining

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Thermal Energy Storage Market Report by Storage Type (Sensible Heat Storage, Latent Heat Storage, Thermochemical Heat Storage), Technology (Molten Salt Technology, Electric Thermal Storage Heaters, Solar Energy Storage, Ice-Based Technology, Miscibility Gap Alloy Technology (MGA), and Others), Material Type (Water, Molten Salt, Phase Change Materials (PCM), and Others), Application (Power Generation, District Heating and Cooling, Process Heating and Cooling), End-Use (Residential and Commercial Sector, Utility Industry, and Other Industries), and Region 2024-2032," the global thermal energy storage market size reached US$ 6.9 Billion in 2023. Thermal energy storage refers to a system of storing energy for use at a later stage for power generation. It comprises latent, sensible and thermochemical heat storages that are based on molten salt, ice and miscibility gap alloy (MGA) technology. It is utilized for temporarily containing thermal energy in hot or cold forms, which is crucial for balancing the energy demand when the production of energy exceeds the demand. Their employment results in increasing the overall efficiency and improving the reliability of the system while minimizing carbon dioxide emissions. Consequently, these storage systems, often coupled with concentrating solar power (CSP), are widely utilized across the commercial and residential sectors.

Global Thermal Energy Storage Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the rising adoption of renewable energy sources for power generation. This is further facilitated by the increasing demand for uninterrupted power supply and the growing need for reliable power requirements across numerous industries. Thermal energy storage systems are also utilized in heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) applications for the large-scale district and process heating and cooling facilities. Along with this, the numerous government initiatives undertaken to promote renewable energy adoption and sustainable infrastructural development are creating a positive outlook for the market. The escalating demand for thermal energy storage in CSP is acting as another major growth-inducing factor. The increasing integration of these storage solutions with CSP is expected to provide grid flexibility while significantly reducing efficiency losses. Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include the employment of these systems in green buildings for power generation and the extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by the key players. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.7% during 2024-2032.
