The report presents a comprehensive overview of the various factors contributing to the expansion of the global battery management system market. It also presents insights into challenges that the market could face over the forecast period. The impact of regulatory policies and prevailing economic trends on the overall market operations is also studied in the report in detail.

BMS used for lithium-ion-based battery dominates the global BMS market since lithium-ion-based batteries are used for diverse industrial applications. This can be attributed to their high energy and power density, low standby losses, and light weight. Furthermore, due to the recent price reduction of lithium ion batteries and their increasing adoption in UPS, renewable energy systems, electric vehicles, and telecommunications, the demand for BMS is expected to surge in the forthcoming years.

During the forecast period, battery management systems used for modular topology are also expected to demonstrate a robust CAGR. An increasing number of manufacturers are preferring modular topology since it offers impressive computational power and is considered safe, not requiring extensive wiring harnesses. Modular topology is suitable for various applications such as in industrial UPS, energy storage systems, drones, medical mobility vehicles, and parts of electric vehicles.

Despite witnessing growth at a positive rate, the lack of proper standards for the development of BMS for diverse applications hinders the global BMS market to an extent. This in turn makes it difficult to compare the performance between two battery management systems.

Regionally, North America held the largest share of the global battery management system market in 2015. However, Asia Pacific is expected to exhibit the fastest growth during the forecast period. Increasing demand from countries such as Japan and China significantly boosts the battery management system market in Asia Pacific.
