SCOPE OF REPORT

This report provides an updated review of TFBs, including materials and production processes, and identifies current and emerging applications for this technology.

BCC Research delineates the current market status for TFBs, defines trends, and presents growth forecasts for the next 5 years. The TFB industry is analyzed based on the following segments: type, chemistry, application, and region. In addition, technological issues, including key events and the latest process developments, are also discussed.

More specifically, BCC’s market analysis is divided into five sections.

In the first section (chapter 3), an introduction to the topic and a historical review of TFBs are provided, including an outline of recent events. In this section, current and emerging applications for TFBs are also identified and described.

The second section (chapter 4) provides a technological review of the fabrication steps used to manufacture TFBs, with an outline of the most common processes and innovative production methods. This section concludes with an analysis of the most important technological developments since 2010, including examples of significant patents recently issued or applied for, as well as highlighting the most active research organizations operating in this field.

The third section (chapter 5) entails a global market analysis of TFBs. Global revenues (sales data in millions of dollars) are presented for each segment (battery type, chemistry, application, and region) with actual data for the years 2011 and 2012 and estimated revenues for 2013.

The analysis of current revenues for TFBs is followed by a detailed presentation of market growth trends, based on industry growth, technological trends, and regional trends. The third section concludes by providing projected revenues for TFBs within each segment, together with forecast CAGRs for 2013 through 2018.

In the fourth section of the study (chapter 6), which covers global industry structure, the report offers a list of the leading manufacturers of TFBs, together with a description of their products. The analysis includes a description of the geographical distribution of these suppliers and an evaluation of other key industry players. Detailed company profiles of the top players are also provided.

The fifth and final section (chapter 7) includes an extensive U.S. patent analysis, with a summary of patents related to TFBs, materials, fabrication methods, and applications. The patents examined in this study were issued from 2011 through 2013. Patent analysis is performed by region, country, assignee, patent category, application, battery type, and fabrication process.
