Thermal Energy Storage Market Research, 2030

The global thermal energy storage market size was valued at $20.8 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $51.3 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 8.5% from 2021 to 2030. Thermal energy storage is the type of energy storage in which various materials are used to store the energy with increase in its temperature and lose its energy when temperature decreases. The major sources for thermal energy storage include heat pumps and heat generated by power plants & waste. These storage systems reduce the demand for energy during peak hours, lower the carbon dioxide emissions, and decrease the energy consumption of end consumers. It is widely employed in thermal power plants and solar power plants to supply dispatchable power even during night, and to utilize heat in process industries.

Lockdown imposed due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic resulted in temporary ban on import & export and manufacturing & processing activities across various industries and electrical utilities, which decreased the demand for power from these consumers. In addition, halt in building & construction of new electric utility infrastructures, renewable power plants, grid network, and other power plants, owing to unavailability of workers and increase in demand–supply gap are projected to hamper the market growth during the pandemic period. This resulted in decline in thermal energy storage market growth in the second, third, and fourth quarters of 2020. However, the thermal energy storage market recovered after the 2nd quarter of 2021, as COVID-19 vaccination began in various economies across the globe, which is expected to improve the global economy.
