Recent Developments in the Global Sulfur-Based Battery Market 

  • In September 2022, Toho Gas, a utility company that serves 54 cities in central Japan, ordered or rewarded a supply contract to NGK Insulators, Ltd for an 11.4MW/69.6MWh sodium sulfur system. This sodium-sulfur battery system would be deployed at Tsu LNG station in Mie Prefecture. This would strengthen the presence of the company in the sulfur-based battery market in Japan.
  • In April 2022, Li-S Energy Limited expanded its production to Geelong with a new facility for 2-megawatt-hour annual production. The company would expand its production capacity for lithium-sulfur batteries, which is near the current production facility and research labs on the campus.
  • In January 2022, Lyten, Inc. signed an agreement with the U.S. Department of Defense through the National Security Innovation Capital (NSIC) program. This agreement aimed at enhancing the lithium-sulfur battery technology for commercial and national security use. This would expand the manufacturing and production capacity of the domestic battery prototype of the company.

Stationary Energy Storage to Dominate the Application Segment

The application segment for the sulfur-based battery market includes stationary energy storage, automotive energy storage, consumer electronics, and aerospace and defense. The batteries offered by manufacturers come with different specifications, which gives these consumers a wide choice range in the said applications.

According to this report from BIS Research, based on applications, the global sulfur-based battery market is expected to be dominated by stationary energy storage, followed by automotive energy storage.

This is largely since sodium-sulfur batteries are used in stationary energy storage applications and are growing rapidly owing to renewable power storage applications.
