LONDON – Considering new forthcoming 48V mild hybrid vehicles acquire EV operating modes during the next decade, the overall electric vehicle (EV) industry will likely become a market with a value of approximately USD 1 trillion by 2027.
Globally, the number of gas-only cars and commercial vehicles as of 2012 stood at 84 million units, with China (19 million), the USA (10 million), Japan (10 million), and Germany (6 million) setting the pace.
The majority of land, water and air EVs, such as hybrid and pure electric cars, heavy industrial, bus, micro EV quadricycle, golf cart/caddy, disabled mobility, military, marine, among others, are amid a disruptive period of fast change.
Technology advancements are altogether giving a boost to the industry growth, though, there are still technical hurdles remaining for some cutting-edge technologies. Components are changing as supercapacitors are starting to replace batteries or considerably increase their lifetimes. There are also many novel battery types, new techniques for accumulation and new power electronics.
With cars being a huge business, the industrial and commercial sector is the biggest and most profitable, and it will remain unchanged.
Car sales are forecast to peak during the next 15 years for a number of reasons, and internal combustion (IC) engine is likely to peak, too, but most industrial and commercial vehicles are projected to witness no easing of growth pace, as they are set to power over 65% of the market – more than twofold that of cars.
Topical research report “Electric Vehicles 2017-2037: Forecasts, Analysis and Opportunities” drawn up by IDTechEx Ltd is aimed at analysing the global market for EVs – land, air and water, hybrid and pure electric.
