Thin film battery markets at $35 million in 2014 are forecast to reach $3.4 billion by 2021. Rapid growth toward the end of the forecast period is anticipated as technology improves the cost structure of the manufacturing.

Thin film battery market driving forces include creating business inflection by delivering technology that supports entirely new capabilities. Sensor networks are creating demand for thin film solid state devices. Vendors doubled revenue and almost tripled production volume from first quarter. Multiple customers are moving into production with innovative products after successful trials.

Software and onboard storage are significant aspects of making the networks more intelligent. The need to capture and analyze increasing amounts of data, deliver results to more users, and respond faster across all devices, without a corresponding increase in budget is a function of better management and better systems. Back up power is part of the picture. 

According to Susan Eustis, the lead author of the team that created the study, Thin film batteries for electronics brings advantages to batteries of less weight, lower cost potentially, higher energy density eventually, and a smaller footprint. Substantially increasing the energy density while lowering costs is the aim of this industry segment. While this has not yet been achieved, it will be done and those who achieve the breakthrough stand to benefit substantially.
