A report from Frost & Sullivan’s TechVision team says that the the market for Battery Management Systems (BMS) is set to grow at a high rate spurred by factors like the growing demand for electric vehicles, updates regarding techniques for thermal management, increasing share of renewable energy mix and enhancement of data acquisition methods.
Frost & Sullivan TechVision, research analyst, Kowtham Kumar Kannadasan. Said that there has been growing demand for electric and hybrid vehicles escalating in recent years as an outcome of emission control issues. Many automotive manufacturers are investing heavily in the development of BMS solutions.
The Frost & Sullivan report highlights that there is a need for a large-scale BMS with enhanced electronics design, electrochemistry, and cell modelling in data center industry in the next five to seven years. There is a need to integrate BMS with improved prognostics, diagnostics functions, and multi-industry certification for raising safety standards. Manufacturers of BMS will also need to incorporate planning for charging batteries and powering subsystems in wireless devices like laptops, smartphones and desktop computers, and laptops.
There have been many improvements in material science which are augmenting the development of better battery management techniques. Acting as a power back-up in transmission towers and wireless switching offices due to the need for BMS to administer high-rate brief discharges and state of health (SoH) of the battery pack; and medical and fitness industry applications due to audio feedback and wireless connectivity requirements that demand high-capacity battery packs.
Kannadasan noted that when it comes to the cons, many local manufacturers are coming up with products having multiple specifications. This limits the identification of standard products and has an impact on product quality. Another concern is the increasing adoption of luxury features like on-board entertainment, climate control, and in-seat heating as part of BMS models. Hence the BMS models should have the capability to handle extra functionalities while at the same time keeping the system design simple.
