Hybrid Vehicles Market By Product Type (Hybrid Vehicles, Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles), Vehicle Type (Passenger Cars, Light Commercial Vehicles, Heavy Commercial Vehicles), Engine Type (Parallel Hybrid, Series Hybrid, Power Split Hybrid), Powertrain Configuration (Gasoline Electric, Diesel Electric) & Region - Forecast to 2016 - 2026

Hybrid Vehicles Market By Product Type, Vehicle Type, Engine Type, Powertrain Configuration & Region for 2016 – 2026 : Analysis and Review

Power split hybrid vehicles to hold majority of the revenue share in the global hybrid vehicles market

Power split hybrid vehicles are the most preferred type of powertrains in the hybrid vehicles market, owing to their advantages over the other types of powertrains. Power split hybrid systems feature both, series and parallel hybrid systems. Power from the internal combustion engine and electric motor can be used to move the vehicle.

The point where it slightly differs from other powertrain systems is that, the wheels of the vehicle can be powered by the internal combustion system alone, or the internal combustion system can be turned off and the battery can supply the necessary power to the generator that initiates the electric motor, and hence, drive the wheels. It is projected that power split hybrid vehicles will continue to dominate the hybrid vehicles market, and will reach a market value of more than US$ 335 billion by 2026.

Passenger cars segment to dominate the hybrid vehicles market

The passenger cars segment holds a majority of the share in the hybrid vehicles market. This is due to the dominance of passenger cars in the automotive industry. Passenger car production in 2015 was more than 68 million units, way ahead than light and heavy commercial vehicles. It is projected that, the hybrid vehicles market for passenger cars will continue to be a significant market segment, and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 22.8% during the forecast period.

Hybrid vehicles tend to be more fuel-efficient than conventional vehicles, as it utilizes power from automotive batteries, in the event of start-stop or at cruising speeds. Along with this, the presence of an internal combustion engine with the electric system makes a hybrid vehicle more economical and easy to drive, especially in urban areas where traffic is usually high.

Gasoline hybrid vehicles more preferred over diesel hybrid vehicles in the hybrid vehicles market

Gasoline hybrid vehicles are favored over diesel hybrid vehicles due to improved performance, high fuel efficiency, and low tailpipe emissions. There aren’t many diesel hybrid vehicles, owing to high maintenance and tailpipe emissions, which makes gasoline hybrid vehicles as the preferred choice of consumers. The market for gasoline hybrid vehicles is projected to grow at a significant CAGR of 21% in terms of value during the forecast period.

Insufficient infrastructure may hamper the plug-in hybrid vehicles market

The growth of plug-in hybrid vehicles mainly depends on the availability of charging stations on the road networks. Gasoline station availability is much higher than that of charging stations, which come across as a roadblock to the growth of hybrid vehicles market. Though charging systems are provided by manufacturers to customers, they are stationary and probably would be attached to a home or workplace. Public charging stations are far less available, and is an issue when a low battery emergency arises.
