Smart Battery Market - Global Industry Analysis Forecast 2016 - 2024

Historically, users of rechargeable batteries have struggled with the issue of correct estimation of the battery’s state of charge (SOC), a parameter that reflects the performance of the battery. Batteries do not exhibit visible changes as part of their usage; they look the same when they are empty, half charged, fully charged, or are being overcharged. Batteries almost also look the same when they are new, old, or require a replacement. The accurate estimation of the state of charge of rechargeable batteries is thus highly necessary to protect the battery from overcharge or discharge and improve its performance and life. The proper estimation of SoC is also necessary to enable the user to take greater control of battery-enabled devices and devise strategies to save energy.
To tackle this issue, an increasing number of rechargeable batteries are made ‘smart.’ Smart batteries are regular rechargeable batteries integrated with a microchip, enabling communication between the battery, charger, and the user. In the simplest words, smart batteries are rechargeable batteries that provide reliable SoC indications.
Typical applications of smart batteries are mobile computing devices, smartphones, video cameras, biomedical devices, defense equipment, and a vast array of today’s battery-operated ‘smart’ electronics devices.
The TMR report on smart batteries gives a detailed overview of the global market for smart batteries, wherein it examines the current state of the market and provides projections for growth for the period 2016 to 2024. The report features an analysis of the key factors that will influence market development during this forecast period, from the perspective of key market segments and regional subdivisions.
