Market Research Reports | Q1 2024 | Report ID: BR01685

About the Report

The global market for sodium-ion batteries is predicted to increase rapidly in the next years. Factors driving the market include the inherent benefits of sodium-ion batteries (low cost and sustainability), government support, rapid deployment of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar, increasing adoption of low-speed electric vehicles such as e-bikes and e-rickshaws, and rising demand for uninterrupted power supply. These characteristics are encouraging the development and use of sodium-ion battery technology as an alternative to lithium-ion batteries in a variety of applications.

 

Drivers

  • Growing support from the governments through investments in advanced energy storage technologies.
  • Increasing R&D projects on Na-ion technology  
  • Rising number of global renewable energy storage projects 
  • Social and environmental pressures by the various stakeholders to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Economies are rapidly moving towards electricity to reduce CO2 emissions.
  • Expanding battery energy storage systems market due to rising adoption in grid storage solutions, and microgrids.
  • There is a growing demand for electric charging stations with electric vehicles. 
  • Increasing lithium metal prices are increasing the demand for advanced battery energy storage systems. 

 

Lithium prices rise

 

However, the lack of an industrial supply chain does not favour the active use of sodium-ion batteries, and fierce competition from the lithium-ion batteries market and other advanced battery technologies are some of the factors restraining the growth of sodium-ion battery market.

 

What is Sodium-ion Battery?

A sodium-ion battery is a rechargeable battery similar to a lithium-ion battery, but instead of lithium ions (Li+), it uses sodium metal ions (Na+) as charge carriers. A sodium ion cell's working principles and cell design are nearly identical to those of lithium ion cells, except sodium compounds are employed instead of lithium compounds.

 

Sodium battery technologies have succeeded in gaining market traction and could be competitive with Li-ion batteries. The commercialization of sodium ion batteries has increased in low-speed electric vehicles and electrical energy storage systems. The low-cost, high-energy density, high power storage, improved thermal stability, remarkable cycle life and easy availability of raw materials are making sodium ion batteries favorable for adoption into various applications.

 

Sodium ion Battery Advantages

  • Low-cost materials: Sodium Salt is one of the most abundant elements on Earth and therefore priced accordingly; this means system costs are lower than Li-ion.
  • Depth of discharge: All sodium battery technologies mentioned can completely discharge without degrading the cell.
  • Low temperature: All sodium ion batteries perform at 90% of their high capacity retention rate at -20 °C.
  • Thermal Runaway: All Sodium-ion batteries have a high thermal conductivity 

 

 Sodium ion Battery Disadvantages

  • Capacity: Sodium ions are larger atoms than Li-ion; therefore, cells can store lower energy. However, these challenges are minimized in the latest cell designs/technologies.

 

Sodium ion Battery and its Applications

Stationary Energy Storage Systems

Sodium-ion batteries are an emergent technology and a key part of the solution for cheaper, cleaner energy provision. 

 

A Na-ion battery system can charge when power demand is low and provide power to reduce peak power. Moreover, the NAS battery system can be used as an emergency power supply during power outages and momentary voltage drops. NAS batteries are increasingly being utilized to stabilize output from wind and solar power generators while proving beneficial to the spread of renewable energies and the establishment of the smart grid.

 

These batteries can be incorporated in small-scale localized power supply networks, microgrids that feature reduced energy environmental impact and costs, demand response programs that effectively use stored electric power, and other new energy solutions spreading worldwide to contribute to their widespread use and development

 

Electric Mobility

Sodium-ion batteries have the potential to revolutionize transportation, notably in the EV battery market.

 

Sodium-ion batteries are less expensive to manufacture than other types of batteries, such as lithium-ion batteries. This cost advantage could make EVs more cheap and appealing to customers, resulting in higher adoption rates.

 

While sodium-ion batteries have a lower energy density than lithium ion batteries at the moment and have scope for improvement. Sodium ion technology may become more efficient and energy-dense as research and development progress, making them more competitive with other battery technologies.

 

The Na-ion battery technology can be used in low-cost electric vehicles such as e-scooters, e-rickshaws, and e-bikes by offering a much greater range.

 

Sodium ion Battery Market Challenges

  • Production capacity- As many companies move from the start-up phase to establishing production, volumes are still limited.
  • Production line- Faradion and other manufacturers pursuing battery solutions can utilize existing production lines currently used for lithium battery cell manufacturing; however, these will likely remain Li-ion as demand for these cells continues to rise.

 

Sodium ion Battery Market Opportunities

The sodium-ion battery market offers numerous opportunities for battery manufacturers. Battery makers may position themselves as significant participants in the market for alternative energy storage solutions by investing in research and development, inventing new uses for sodium-ion batteries, and building strategic collaborations.
