Navigant Research Expects Global Advanced Battery Pack Revenue for Traction and Propulsion Energy in Drones to Reach $225 Million by 2026

A new report from Navigant
Research focuses on the drivers, barriers, and technological trends
affecting the deployment of unmanned vehicles (UVs), providing global
market forecasts for energy capacity and revenue, segmented by region,
technology, and UV type, through 2026.

Intelligent UVs, also known as drones, can provide increased efficiency,
higher resolution visuals inspections, and can function in environments
that are physically unsuitable for human operators. Power requirements
and battery suitability must be given serious consideration in the
design of the UVs, and advanced batteries are expected to play a key
role in the further proliferation of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs),
unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs), and unmanned underwater vehicles
(UUVs). Click
to tweet: According to a new report from @NavigantRSRCH,
global advanced battery energy capacity and pack revenue for traction
and propulsion energy in UVs are expected to reach 727.9 MWh and $224.9
million by 2026.

“The provision of technology options that are quicker, easier, safer,
and less costly is considered high priority for stakeholders that
utilize UVs in day-to-day operations,” says Ian McClenny, research
analyst with Navigant Research. “Advanced battery chemistries like
lithium ion (Li-ion) have seen recent price declines and, consequently,
are increasingly being used in UVs.”

While the power requirements for commercial UVs can be moderate,
according to the report, they are strictly dependent on the vehicle
carriage weight, distance traveled, and sensor/data collection
requirements. Traditionally, power options have been limited to
lead-acid batteries and nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) because of their
mature supply chains and (in some cases) silver-zinc because of its
robust architecture.

The report, Advanced
Batteries for Unmanned Vehicles, focuses on the drivers,
barriers, and technological trends affecting the deployment of UVs. The
study provides an analysis of the market issues associated with UAVs for
wind turbine inspection, UGVs for the materials handling sector, and
UUVs for energy resource exploration. Global market forecasts for energy
capacity and revenue, segmented by region, technology, and UV type,
extend through 2026. The report also examines the key design issues and
battery technologies and requirements related to UAVs, UGVs, and UUVs.
An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the Navigant
Research website.
