The global high voltage battery market size accounted for USD 10.5 billion in 2021 and is expected to hit around USD 174.8 billion by 2030, poised to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 36.68% from 2022 to 2030.
The high voltage battery is the type battery that allows for higher-than-normal voltage. It has higher energy density than standard lithium–ion polymer batteries. High Voltage battery system are rated around 400V and are able to get charged and discharged faster than low voltage batteries. They do not need large conductors as their voltage is too high. The lithium high voltage battery is more energy intensive as compared to traditional LiPo batteries. They are made up of Lithium cobalt oxide, lithium iron phosphate, lithium manganese oxide, lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide (NMC).
The high voltage lithium polymer batteries having the nominal voltage over 3.7 V are having the ability to retain more power as compared to ordinary batteries. They are quickly chargeable and provide high output. These batteries have high application in hybrid and electric industries like boat motors, drones etc. They are quite expensive and have complications regarding the recycling of batteries, due to the presence of toxic and hazardous metal content requiring extra attention. The enhanced technology of high voltage batteries and matured safety ratings will help the particular market to grow in the upcoming years.
The increasing demand of high driving range vehicles, smart transportation and the advancement in batteries chemistry are the factors which are expected to play an important role in the growth of high voltage market. The battery capacity of > 300 kWh batteries is expected to be the reason for it being the largest contributor in the high voltage battery market. The growth of these type of batteries are generally driven by the dominance of electric bus industry in country like China. The electrification of public transport is driving the demand of electric buses and trucks which eventually has pushed the demand of high voltage batteries in the market.
The primary insights of various reports shows that Tesla semi’s battery pack will have the capacity of 800-1000 kWh, so it will be a game changer in the the industry of electric truck, as the majority of Tesla semi-trucks are pre ordered. About 90% of the electric buses falls into the category of high voltage batteries, and it is expected to dominate in the high voltage market in the forecasting period. Overall factors such as dominating EV industry, strong economic growth, introduction to smart cities, Gigafactory related development, and various government initiatives have pushed up the demand of high voltage batteries in the various regions.
In wake of COVID-19 the continuous rising demand for power supply from the critical infrastructure have driven the market of high voltage battery. The COVID- 19 situation has somewhat downsized the lithium ion battery market due to the hindrance in the supply of batteries as the result of supply chain disruptions.
