Electric Vehicles Market
The global electric vehicles market size was worth around USD 142.8 Billion in 2020 and is predicted to grow to around USD 586.6 Billion by 2028 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of roughly 20.7% between 2020 and 2028. The report analyzes the global electric vehicles market drivers, restraints/challenges, and the effect they have on the demands during the projection period. In addition, the report explores emerging opportunities in the electric vehicles industry.
The contribution in increasing the Greenhouse Gases (GHG) emissions by the traditional fuel vehicles has paved the way to clean fuel vehicles. Electric Vehicles (EV) have gained popularity in such scenarios, considering a significant contributor to the new power system. These vehicles are operated on an electric motor which requires supply from the batteries.
The market is primarily driven by various benefits offered by EVs over conventional fuel vehicles, including lower carbon emission, higher fuel economy, low maintenance, rise in fuel prices, ease of charging the vehicle, and government policies to increase the sales of EVs. Ultra-fast charging facilities have become more popular recently, providing increased power output. The car manufacturers are significantly investing in procuring EV batteries and cloud-connected charging devices. This trend is expected to continue over the forecast period.
With production lines paused, the supply chain disrupted, and the demand from consumers abridged, the EV market suffered greatly in the pandemic. Tesla Inc initially suspended the production but saw steady sales and profitable quarters in 2020, with the company delivering 1,80,570 vehicles in the 4th quarter. The European EV market saw double the sales in 2020 as that of 2019.
With the government’s strict regulations on Vehicle Emissions to curb air pollution, manufacturers are switching to EVs. For instance, European Union, the US, and China have implemented strict government regulations and have asked manufacturers to use the technologies to Reduce Greenhouse Gases. Improved Batteries having continuous growth with newer technologies like vehicle-to-grid (V2G) systems will ultimately make sure consumers adopt electric vehicles.
Along with imposing regulations, the government has been providing new policies and subsidies to stimulate the adoption of EVs. With consumers getting more benefits like reduced price or more EV battery stations and automakers on grants like exempting from the taxes, it has encouraged both the parties to buy and sell the EVs. The competition between the automakers has undoubtedly made sure there is an arrival of less cheap Electric Vehicles with the complete package, thereby allowing consumers to lean towards the EVs market only.

The global electric vehicles market is segmented by source technology type, by vehicle type, by electric powertrain, and region.
Source Technology Segment Analysis Preview
The Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) held a share of 45.31% in 2020. HEV provides a combination of both electric motor and IC Engine, with the capability of conserving the energy that has been produced from different sources. It meets other objectives like improved fuel efficiency and an increase in power. The use of regenerative braking and automatic start and shutoff technologies have paved the way for HEV to rise in this segment. Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle’s (PHEV) future seems bleak due to high cost and hard to maintain, but the manufacturers are looking forward to reducing the sales price. Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV), Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV), and others form the industry type segment.
Vehicle Segment Analysis Preview
The passenger car segment is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 25.74% from 2021 to 2028. This is accredited to the rising demand for EVs especially in Europe and China. The two-wheelers and other passenger vehicles like cars and buses sales have witnessed increased sales numbers owing to the emergence of advanced batteries. Several other countries are also planning to replace the traditional fuel-based with electric vehicles. This trend will help the passenger car segment hold a substantial market share during the forecasted period. The commercial vehicle segment includes light and heavy commercial vehicles based on applications and the load capacity it has to bear. This segment is expected to witness notable growth during the forecast period as the EV market is witnessing frequent product launches in its commercial vehicles category.
Electric Powertrain Segment Analysis Preview
The Parallel segment is expected to witness substantial growth during the forecast period. This is accredited to its efficient functioning with the engine and motor to generate the power. The use of small battery packs and power from regenerative braking are some of the other factors that fuel the growth of parallel powertrains. This technology of braking allows the battery to recharge, and thus there is no requirement for an external generator.
Asia Pacific is projected to grow at a CAGR of 54.05% during the forecast period. Asia Pacific EV market is likely to witness a significant increase in the demand for passenger cars due to enhanced production capabilities, especially in developing economies such as China and India. China holds the largest share in passenger car segments in the global EV market. The ever-rising levels of air pollution in APAC countries and the increase in demand for private vehicles have paved an opportunity to grow the market. The need is backed by the government’s laws and subsidies to meet the objectives.
North America is expected to witness substantial growth during the forecast period. The rigid government regulations and improvement in charging infrastructure in the U.S. have led North America to contribute heavily to the global market. Tesla has been the largest manufacturer in California and will help the market witness the highest growth due to increased demand for commercial vehicles. Biden administration is on the path of electrifying the entire fleet and meet the sustainability achievements.
Some of the key players in the Electric Vehicle market include Tesla Inc, Volkswagen AG, Ford Motors, BMW, Daimler AG, General Motors, Nissan Motors Co. Ltd., Toyota Motor Corporation, among others. These companies are focusing on inventing new technologies to pull more market towards EVs.
