Redox flow battery is a rechargeable battery which works on the oxidation and reduction reaction mechanism. The redox flow battery converts the chemical energy to the electrical energy with the help of reduction of working fluids and reversible oxidation. These batteries work for longer time due to the less degradation of electrolytes and electrodes.

Redox Flow Battery Market Drivers:

Increased use of renewable resources and durability of the battery are the major redox flow battery market drivers.

The increased use of renewable resources and the longevity of the battery is considered to be the major driving factor for the redox flow battery market. The installation of wind and solar power plants is expected to drive the market as these batteries can work even in 0% energy by using the energy that is stored in the battery itself. Government is also taking initiative and encouraging the use of rechargeable redox batteries over the normal batteries, as normal battery releases harmful substances like lead, cadmium and mercury into the environment which are very harmful to the ecosystem. The longevity of the battery is considered to be the biggest driving factor, as the battery has a lifespan of 40 years and the capacity can be easily increased by increasing the number of tanks and electrolytes.

Market Restraints:

Complexity of structure is the major restrain for the redox flow battery market.

The biggest restraint for the redox flow battery industry is the complexity of the structure. It requires sensors, pumps, power management and flow to the secondary containment to operate which makes the battery even costlier. In addition to these, it makes the functional design comparatively heavier and larger which results to the unavailability of its application in large scale areas. In addition, complex technical issues and deficiency of proper development standard of redox is expected to hamper the market growth in the forecast period.
