logoMarket Overview

An electric vehicle, as opposed to a gasoline-powered vehicle, runs on electricity. Instead of a petrol engine, these vehicles are powered by an electric motor that needs a good amount of energy from batteries to function. These vehicles make use of a variety of batteries. Molten salt, lithium-ion, zinc-air, and other nickel-based designs are among them. The electric vehicle was created largely to replace traditional modes of transportation, which pollute the environment. It has grown in prominence as a result of several technological breakthroughs.

It surpasses traditional automobiles by offering better fuel economy, lower carbon emissions & maintenance, ease of charging at homes, a smoother drive, and lower engine noise. There are three main types of electric car batteries: pure, hybrid, and plug-in hybrid. Furthermore, while electric vehicles do not require engine oil changes, they are slightly more expensive than gasoline-powered counterparts.

logoCovid-19 Impact

The COVID-19 outbreak has had a detrimental effect on the automobile sector as a whole, and thus on the electric vehicle market as well. According to data supplied by the Society of Electric Vehicle Manufacturers (SMEV), new EV registrations of all types of electric vehicles fell by 20% during FY21 compared to FY20. Furthermore, in the midst of the pandemic, various players are attempting to design novel techniques in order to maintain up with the situation, such as deploying electric cars for medical supplies because they provide economical transportation with outstanding agility.

logoElectric Vehicles Market: Growth Drivers

  • Strict government restrictions and regulations toward vehicle emission are expected to drive the market’s growth

Governments and regulatory agencies around the world are establishing strict emission rules and laws to minimize vehicle emissions in response to growing ecological issues. Stringent emission targets for carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) in the air are major regulatory measures. Vehicles release large amounts of greenhouse gases, and the state & federal governments in the United States are making intensifying attempts to make transportation sustainable. 

For instance, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced that it is developing new guidelines to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) and other emissions emitted by heavy-duty trucks. Furthermore, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) is implementing the heavy-duty Low NOx Omnibus Regulation, which intends to reduce NOx emissions by 90% by 2027 compared to existing standards. Furthermore, the European Union (EU) promised in the Paris Agreement (COP21) to meet its 20% greenhouse gas emission reduction target in 2020 for the Kyoto Protocol's second phase. The EU has also set a goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2040 and reaching net-zero by 2050.

As a result, the demand for vehicle manufacturers, particularly commercial vehicle manufacturers, has increased as a result of the passage of emission restrictions for fossil fuel-powered vehicles. As a result, demand for electric vehicles is projected to rise. Thus, strict emission standards placed on fossil-fuel-driven commercial vehicles are propelling the global electric vehicle market forward.

logoRising demand for low-emission, high-performance, and fuel-efficient vehicles are boosting the market’s growth

As gasoline is a source of fuel, it is not a sustainable form of energy and will gradually run out of fuel. Sustainable energy sources must be identified and used to ensure a sustainable future. This requires the use of electric vehicles that do not necessitate the use of gasoline and are more cost-efficient than regular combustion vehicles. With the recent increase in the price of gasoline and diesel, demand for electric vehicles has surged.

logoElectric Vehicles Market: Restraints

  • High production costs will impede market expansion

Electric vehicles are preferable to regular fuel vehicles, but they are more expensive than gasoline-powered vehicles. Because these vehicles aren't mass-produced, they haven't yet attained economies of scale. Furthermore, the absence of charging points linked to the development of electric vehicles has proven to be a deterrent to market expansion. Similarly, producers require a significant amount of financial assets, which may stifle the global electric vehicle market growth. However, the battery costs are likely to drop in the coming years as part of the increased mass production of electric vehicle batteries in huge volumes and technological developments.

logoElectric Vehicles Market: Opportunities

  • Government initiatives to promote electric vehicles offer significant growth opportunities

Vehicle emissions reduction objectives have been set for 2050 in many countries across the world. They have begun to promote the production and sale of electric vehicles, as well as the infrastructure that supports them. For instance, the US government spent USD 5 billion in 2017 to support electric vehicle infrastructure like charging points. Many countries are offering minimal or even no registration fees and also exemptions from import duties, road tax, and sales tax. Furthermore, countries such as Germany and Norway are heavily investing in electric vehicle sales promotion.

As a result of the huge incentives and benefits in Europe, there is a rapid increase in the market for electric vehicles. This has resulted in an increase in demand for electric vehicle charging equipment and materials such as connectors, charging cables, portable chargers, and adapters. A 2020 vision for a nationwide fast-charging channel is also scheduled to be created as part of an agreement between the US departments of energy and transportation, with potential longer-term developments including up to 350 kW of DC power supercharging. As a result of stricter CO2 emission regulations, electric vehicles have become more popular.

logoElectric Vehicles Market: Challenges

  • Lack of standardization of electric vehicles remains a challenge

The necessity for the standardization of electric car charging stations has been highlighted by factors like the development of the electric vehicle market and variances in charging loads. Certain electric vehicle charging outlets may only work with a specific voltage. For instance, level 1 charging points provide a voltage of 120V AC, whereas level 2 charging points provide a voltage of 208V AC or 240V AC. DC charging stations, on the other hand, use 480V AC to provide quick charging. For the establishment of a favorable ecology and a rise in electric vehicle sales, governments must standardize charge stations. Different countries have different quick-charging standards. CHAdeMO is used in Japan; CCS is used in Europe, the United States, & Korea; and GB/T is used in China. Because India has yet to achieve standardization in fast charging systems, the Indian government has ordered the deployment of both CHAdeMO and CCS methods.

However, because this rule increased the cost of installing charging stations, the government amended the guidelines in July 2019 and enabled charging station operators to choose their preferred method. Tesla, a California-based electric vehicle manufacturer, employs high-performance superchargers that are exclusive to Tesla and cannot be utilized by other electric vehicles. The absence of standardization between countries may have an influence on charging station installation and stifle the market for electric vehicle charging stations.
