Market and Opportunities
Products, expert knowledge and competence for the market of the future
The demand for energy is increasing rapidly throughout the world. At the same time, fossil fuels are dwindling and CO2 regulations are becoming more stringent. As a consequence, alternative mobility concepts and regenerative energies will gain in importance. The aim is to make power from renewable energies available at any time and in any place, as well as to advance the electrification of vehicle drive systems. This means that powerful and low-cost energy storage systems are becoming correspondingly important. Significant growth perspectives are associated with the continuously increasing storage requirements.
Entry from sectors employing related technologies
This trend promises excellent prospects for manufacturers that already have years of experience perfecting the production of conventional batteries. At the same time OEMs with similar processes – such as the photovoltaics sector – are increasingly moving into this lucrative market. The technological expertise they already possess enables companies like these to make a rapid entry into battery manufacturing, a true market of the future. Thriving in the face of such competition means continuously cutting production costs and boosting production quality.
