Marine Lithium-ion Battery Market: Overview

Technology based on lithium iron phosphate offers numerous advantages in terms of volume, weight, and longevity. These requirements are necessary for a catamaran, sailing ship, or boat. Lithium-ion service batteries are roughly twice as lighter as marine, boat, and yacht applications as conventional AGM batteries. They are also two times smaller. They are indisputable assets for habitable space, navigability, boat performance, and other nautical applications.

Growth Factors

For workboats, offshore support, cruise ships, ferries, and cargo ships, marine lithium-ion batteries can be employed. They are more energy-efficient, last longer than many lead-acid batteries, are lighter, and take up less space.

Lithium-ion batteries can deliver a higher proportion of their nominal capacity than lead-acid batteries without reducing their useful life. For the majority of the discharge cycle, they retain voltage. With an increasing reliance on lithium batteries and energy storage as power sources, more and more ships are converting to hybrid or entirely electric propulsion.

The technique has demonstrated its reliability and sturdiness. There are now more hybrid and fully electric ships in the marine sector than ever before. According to estimates, almost all commercial ships will eventually incorporate some form of energy storage into their electrical infrastructure, and lithium-ion batteries are quickly rising in popularity among ship owners. Throughout the forecast period, these factors will contribute to the marine lithium-ion battery market growth.

  • As of July 2019, 356 all-electric or hybrid vessels were either in use or under construction, according to DNV GL, a quality assurance and risk management service provider to the marine industry. By the same month, 318 liquefied natural gas (LNG) ships were in service or on order.

The market is also subject to various limitations. The greatest danger posed by using lithium-ion batteries is thermal runaway. The battery cell will experience an exothermic reaction if it is damaged or exposed to extreme heat, which will result in an increase in heat. Due to the larger batteries needed for ship operations than for cars or aeroplanes, this issue is more common in marine contexts.

People coming into contact with the battery during delivery is highly likely. When a lithium battery fails, explosive gas can also be released, especially when there is water present. Due to the fact that ship battery systems are frequently located indoors, the risk of an explosion is considerably raised. Water and lithium can combine to form highly explosive hydrogen.

Segmental Overview

The market for Marine Lithium-ion batteries is segmented into type and application. Based on type, the market for marine lithium-ion batteries may be segmented into 12V, 24V, 36V, 48V, 60V, 72V, and other voltages. It is projected that the 12V segment will dominate the market in 2021. When depleted to 95% or more, a deep cycle lithium battery maintains a voltage between 12.5V and 13.4V.

The voltage then rapidly decreases. Other marine batteries, like the lead-acid battery, an alternative to the lithium battery, see their voltage drop from 13 volts to under 11.5 volts as the current rises. Once fully charged, the marine battery keeps itself charged by maintaining a relatively low voltage, often 13.2 to 13.4 volts. The battery will “burn out” at higher voltages, and the electrolyte will evaporate, thus reducing battery life.
