Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES) Systems Market Analysis - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends and Forecast, 2018 - 2026

Category : Energy and Power | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC818


Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES) systems stock energy in magnetic field generated by the stream of direct current in superconducting coil that has cryogenically cooled to particular temperature beneath its superconducting critical temperature. A typical SMES system includes three parts such as cryogenically cooled refrigerator, power conditioning system and superconducting coil. Once the superconducting coil is charged, the current will not fall off and magnetic energy can be stowed.

Market Dynamics

Growing demand for eco-friendly and green storage solutions owing to increasing concerns about climatic changes is driving the demand for SMES systems. However, key participants in the market are endangered by the existence of substitutes such as compressed air energy storage. Also, the high cost of SMES systems is also hindering their pervasive adoption. For energy generation, consumption of renewable sources is at high rate combined with exhausting fossil fuels is anticipated to provide favorable growth opportunities for the market growth.

Market Classification

The market can be bifurcated on the basis of product type, application and geography. By product type, superconducting magnetic energy storage systems market can be segmented into low temperature SMES and high temperature SMES. By application, superconducting magnetic energy storage systems market can be segmented into power system, industrial use, research institution and others. On the basis of geography, the superconducting magnetic energy storage systems market can be segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Middle East & Africa (MEA) and Asia-Pacific.
