Forbes – Ariel Cohen – Charging Up: Battery Storage Investments To Reach $620 Billion By 2040
The market for energy storage is rapidly gaining momentum around the world. The growing cost-competitiveness of carbon-free energy sources, coupled with improving technology and more environmentally conscious government policies are driving a demand boom for batteries in both the transportation and utility power sectors. But just how big is this boom expected to be?
Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) predicts that the global energy storage market will grow to a cumulative 942GW by 2040, attracting a whopping $620 billion in investments. This makes sense, given that combined wind and solar power generation capacity is expected to eclipse that of natural gas shortly after 2040 – at least according to the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). And those renewable energy stations, which produce power intermittently (the sun is not always shining and the wind is not always blowing), will require adequate storage to make them economically viable.
That’s to say nothing of battery-powered electric vehicles (EVs), where the global fleet has been expanding at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 52% over the past 5 years. That rate is expected to level off to about 25% between now and 2025. There are currently 3 million EVs on the road today, and an estimated 1.2 million of them were sold in 2017. That’s around 1.5% of all car sales last year……
China, US, India, Japan, Germany, France, Australia, South Korea, and the UK lead the energy storage markets, together accounting for two-thirds of 2040’s installed capacity
The major players operating in the battery energy storage system market include ABB (Switzerland), LG Chem (South Korea), NEC (Japan), Panasonic (Japan), Samsung SDI (South Korea), AEG Power Solutions (Netherlands), General Electric (US), Hitachi (Japan), Siemens (Germany), and Tesla (US). Keep an eye on these companies as battery deployment and investment continue to rise.

Proton Therapy Market (Actual & Potential), Patients Treated, List of Proton Therapy Centers, Start of Treatment, Specifications & Company Analysis – Global Forecast to 2022
ReportsWorldwide has announced the addition of a new report title Proton Therapy Market (Actual & Potential), Patients Treated, List of Proton Therapy Centers, Start of Treatment, Specifications & Company Analysis – Global Forecast to 2022 to its growing collection of premium market research reports.
The continuing exploration of the benefits of proton therapy is inspiring a growing and massive construction of new proton centers globally. Proton therapy is an advanced form of radiation therapy that uses high-energy proton beam rather than conventional radiotherapy to irradiate a tumor. The main advantage of proton therapy is that while destroying the target malignant cells, it causes minimal damage to the surrounding cells. Proton therapy uses the ionization technique to inhibit cell proliferation. Protons move slowly through the body and interact with electrons and discharge energy.
Globally, the numbers of patients treated with Proton Therapy is very low whereas; the potential candidates for proton therapy are in Millions. The number of proton therapy centers is increasing globally. Still, industry experts believe that players will miss out on a majority of cancer patients who can benefit with proton therapy, overlooking a huge multi-Billion-dollar potential market. IBA dominates the proton therapy market globally. However, other players like Varian, Mitsubishi, Mevion, Hitachi etc. have also started to make their presence felt in the market.
The unprecedented demand of proton therapy for the treatment of cancer has set the stage for the market to move ahead at a rapid pace. It is anticipated that the Global proton therapy market will almost double by 2022 from its current market value. The increased demand for proton therapy has motivated many prominent cancer centers in the world to provide proton therapy treatment. The number of proton therapy centers worldwide is anticipated to increase year on year, which in turn, will result in more clinical research, better clinician understanding and greater patient awareness of its benefits-which will help drive the further growth.
