Meanwhile, the market is also expected to draw growth from public investments in the electronics sector. Many government agencies across the globe are rolling out favorable policies and investment schemes for their electronics sector, to use the industry as a crutch to recover from the COVID-19 economic slump. As per India’s Press Information Bureau, production of electronics in the country for 2021-2022 was valued at USD 80 billion.

Thin Film Battery Market Trends

Despite an expanding scope for product adoption, the industry faces a major challenge in the form of the steep initial investments associated with the production and distribution of thin film batteries. The production of thin film batteries relies upon rare earth elements such as lithium, making it highly cost intensive. High cost of lithium also further adds to the overall price of a thin film battery, which takes it out of reach for many small to medium scale consumer electronics manufacturers. These costs redirect revenues towards the more easily available low-cost alternatives, hampering growth further.

In terms of application, thin film battery market size from wearable devices segment is anticipated to reach over USD 73.5 million in 2022. Thin film batteries are widely used in wearable devices such as smartwatches and fitness bands owing to their improved recharging rate and compactness. The consumer electronics sector has been reporting growing demand for wearable devices, which are becoming more compact and energy intensive due to novel innovations. Back in September 2022, Apple Inc. an American multinational technology company, released Apple Watch Series 8, and the new Apple Watch SE equipped with an innovative temperature sensor and crash detection capability.

This is bolstering the demand for lithium-based thin film batteries due to their longer battery life, low self-discharge rate.

On the basis of product, the thin film battery market from non-rechargeable segment is poised to witness 40% growth rate between 2023 and 2032. Escalating demand for non-rechargeable thin film batteries in smart cards, consumer electronics, medical sensors, and other applications is supplementing the segment outlook. Non-rechargeable batteries also cost less than their rechargeable counterparts, which makes them more affordable and widespread. Additionally, these batteries also offer superior capacity and high initial voltage, making them ideal for the aforementioned applications.
