Lithium Ion to remain most preferred battery type in the electric vehicle battery market
The lithium ion battery is the prominent battery type used in the electric vehicles. They are preferred over other types of electric vehicle batteries as they have low weight, longer life span, rapid charging, fire resistant, and high energy density. Lithium ion batteries despite having high energy density have less weight, it can provide voltage, power, and energy with relatively light and small source. Also, using the lighter battery decreases the overall weight of the vehicle and hence increasing the efficiency of the vehicle.
Along with this, ongoing research in the field of lithium ion batteries to enhance its range and will allow electric vehicle to have longer range. It is projected that lithium ion batteries will continue to lead the Electric Vehicle Battery market and will grow at a CAGR of 9.4% in terms of value during the forecast period.
The demand for other type of batteries such as lead acid and nickel hydride battery are growing at a slow pace as compared with lithium ion battery and it is projected that the combine market size of all other battery types will reach more than US$ 13 Bn by 2027 in the electric vehicle battery market.
Hybrid electric vehicles projected to be the most lucrative segment in the electric vehicle battery market
In the global electric vehicle market, hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) segment holds more than 70% of the share in 2017. The dominance of HEV over PHEV and BEV in the electric vehicle market makes them the prominent market for electric vehicle battery. Hybrid electric vehicles are preferred more as its twin powered engine, comprises of IC engine and electric motor which decreases fuel consumption.
Insufficient charging stations and vulnerability of solo battery vehicles have slowed the market for PHEVs and BEVs. It is estimated that hybrid electric vehicle will remain the most lucrative segment in terms of both value and volume over the forecast period in the electric vehicle battery market.
Passenger cars to remain most prominent vehicle type in the electric vehicle battery market
Passenger car is the most attractive segment by vehicle type in the electric vehicle battery market owing to their relatively high market value share and growth rate, it is estimated to remain the most lucrative segment in terms of both value and volume over the forecast period. The passenger car segment is estimated to grow at a significant CAGR of 9% in the electric vehicle battery market during the forecast period.
