Market Definition

A flywheel comprises a motor-generator rolling element bearing in a typical setup. Flywheel energy storage (FES) systems perform by spinning a flywheel at a high frequency and storing energy in the form of rotary energy in the machine. Once the energy is captured, the fly-rotational wheel's speed is reduced by applying the energy savings principle. In order to minimize the energy loss and friction produced, the vacuum chamber is employed to place the float wheel and the engine generator.

The first generation of flywheel energy storage systems features a large steel flywheel rotating on mechanical lockers. However, modern FES systems comprise high-performance carbon-fiber rotors suspended by magnet bearings and rotating at speeds ranging from 20,000 to over 50,000 rpm in a vacuum environment. These flywheels can reach their energy capacity significantly faster than any other form of storage in a couple of minutes.

Moreover, in an attempt to promote healthy competition among players, certain guidelines have been enforced by the industrial standards that act as critical references to be used while designing, testing, installing, manufacturing, and maintenance of flywheel power systems. The guidelines not just ensure compliance and minimalist liability but also collectively downsize overall costs by eliminating wasted time and effort to develop high-quality flywheel energy storage systems.

Another factor backing the frequent adoption of flywheel energy storage systems is their higher efficiency and longer life span, facilitating market expansion in the coming years. Moreover, extensive investment by the key players in research and development to tackle the high maintenance costs associated with the technology is expected to improve revenue shares. As such, manufacturers are focusing on enhancements regarding geometry and metallurgical qualities of flywheel rotors, as well as the chemical composition and refinement of low-carbon steel alloy processes. Thus, it is anticipated to offer lucrative growth opportunities for the market during the forecast period. For instance,

  • Chakratec, headquartered in Tel Aviv, Israel, has devised new kinetic energy storage systems. The company has incorporated flywheels to ensure fast charging even in grid-constrained regions, enabling customers to save ample money on expensive upgraded transmission and distribution (T&D) infrastructure.

Global Flywheel Energy Storage System Market Key Trend:

Electrification of Military Systems - The burgeoning demand for flywheels for powering military operations and ground vehicles, as well as weapons, navigation, communications, and their associated intelligent systems, has augmented in the past few years. In order to ensure continuity in terms of numerous weapons, and vehicles, the military systems must be devoid of any disruptions, particularly in terms of energy. As such, flywheel technology forms a suitable choice for energy storage. This storage system improves the system's stability and aids in current penetration in power systems. As a result, the electrification of military systems has been a prominent trend in the Flywheel energy storage system market in the past few years.

Global Flywheel Energy Storage System Market (2023-28): Segmentation Analysis

The Global Flywheel Energy Storage System Market study of MarkNtel Advisors evaluates & highlights the major trends & influencing factors in each segment & includes predictions for the period 2023–2028 at the global, regional, and national levels. Based on the Application the market has been further classified as:

Based on Application,

  • Frequency Regulation
  • Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS)
  • Distributed Energy Generation (DEG)

Among all, Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) demonstrated a noticeable growth with a substantial market share during the historical period and is anticipated to prevail in the same trend during the forecast period. The dominance predominantly attributes to the mounting need for adequate power backup solutions, particularly in developing nations where power outages are frequent. As such, power supply interruptions and fluctuations have called for more energy storage systems like UPS to tackle and minimize such disruptions in commercial sectors in the past few years. This factor undoubtedly has compelled the key players to invest heavily and bring more innovative products into the Global Flywheel Energy Storage System Market, thereby cushioning the industry growth in the coming years.

On the other hand, Distributed Energy Generation(DEG) method is expected to attain maximum growth rate, among others, during the forecast period. It is primarily because of the cost reduction benefits associated with this technique as the power is generated on-site. Since power generates at the point of consumption, the method eliminates inefficiencies and complexities in transmission and distribution.
