Solid state batteries are rapidly gaining prominence as a more efficient and reliable energy storage solution that delivers high performance and safety at low cost. Automakers worldwide have started to recognize the immense potential of solid state batteries in the electric vehicles space. Auto giants are focusing on building deeper relationships with battery makers to manage supply, either by signing long-term contracts or by investing in these companies.

For instance, In June 2020, German carmaker Volkswagen invested US$200 million into solid state battery startup QuantumScape. Volkswagen had initially invested US$100 million into QuantumScape in 2018, when the companies formed a joint venture to accelerate the development of solid state batteries and produce them at commercial scale. 

One of the fastest-growing verticals within the energy storage industry, global solid state battery market size is estimated to be worth more than US$2 billion by 2025. Let’s take a look at some of the top trends fostering the adoption of these batteries in the near future.
