Electric Car Market Analysis - Market Size, Growth, Trends, and Forecast

Electric Car Market Forecast

Global electric car market size is expected to continue growing over the next few years primarily driven by technological innovations in batteries and the reduced price of lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries. An increase in production volume is a major factor leading to the decreased costs of Li-ion battery prices, along with the relocation of manufacturing units from Japan to China. This relocation is allowing manufacturers to benefit from an ample supply of rare earth materials such as dysprosium and terbium for electric vehicle battery production. Additionally, car manufacturers are currently targeting higher battery capacities that increase the range of electric vehicles (EVs) up to 200 miles on a single charge. Due to these factors, we expect the global electric car market to grow 5.78 million units between 2018-2023 at a CAGR of almost 39%.

In addition to China, Japan is also one of the leading contributors to the sales of HEVs and electric vehicles across the globe. The implementation of stringent policies that support infrastructural development will drive market growth in Japan. The electric market analysis highlights that with the implementation of policies that promote the sales of electric cars, India will also contribute significantly to the growth of the EV market. As a result of these factors, the growth of the electric car market in APAC will be faster than the overall market growth.

Electric Car Market Segmentation

Within our electric car industry research, we provide deep insights into the market landscape, its segments, and their market share. Our research experts segment this market into four main electric vehicle types being hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), battery electric vehicles (BEV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV), and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV). In addition, we offer geographical market segmentation of all major regions and top countries including United States, China, and more.

Electric Vehicle Market in US

The electric vehicle market in the US has been enjoying very fast growth since 2014 owing to their environmentally friendly and energy efficient advantages. We forecast this positive growth to continue into 2022 due to state-led state governments providing incentives for the adoption of electric vehicles to prevent increasing greenhouse gas emissions.

Electric Vehicle Market in China

China’s stringent emission standards for passenger and commercial vehicles is encouraging several customers to purchase EVs to reduce their emission levels. China recently launched new fuel consumption regulations that require new passenger vehicles to achieve an average fuel consumption of 5 L/100 km by 2020. Reaching this target would reduce emissions by roughly 25%. We forecast that factors such as the increasing concerns over fuel efficiency and emission reductions are expected to drive electric vehicle market growth in China through 2022.
