Growing Demand for Electric Vehicles and Advancements in Battery Technology Expected to Drive the Electric Vehicle Battery Market

In the current scenario pertaining to the automotive industry, improvements have been witnessed in the demand for vehicles run by some form of electric power, such as HEV, PHEV and BEV, with a higher working range. This demand from the end users has compelled traction battery manufacturers to focus more on increasing the energy density, which can provide a high travelling range.

In addition, the demand for electric vehicles has also encouraged battery manufacturers to expand their production capacity, which also helps them maintain economies of scale and bring down their operational cost, thus decreasing the price of electric batteries. Moreover, the new technology battery has also decreased the per kilometer running cost of vehicles, which is encouraging the general population to change their preference from IC engine-driven vehicles to battery-driven vehicles.

The electric vehicle battery market is segmented on the basis of battery type, battery capacity, vehicle type, and vehicle technology.

·   Lithium ion battery is expected to continue to dominate the market in terms of volume and value over the forecast period. The lithium ion battery sub-segment of the electric vehicle battery market is estimated to grow at a significant CAGR of 9.4% over the forecast period. It is expected to represent a total incremental opportunity of US$ 13.8 Bn between 2017 and 2027 in the electric vehicle battery market. The nickel hydride battery is projected to grow at a relatively low CAGR as compared to the lithium ion battery over the forecast period

·   Hybrid electric vehicles are projected to be the most prominent vehicle technology in the electric vehicle battery market. The hybrid electric vehicle segment is estimated to grow at a significant CAGR in terms of value over the forecast period in the electric vehicle battery market

·   The passenger car segment is the most prominent vehicle type segment in the electric vehicle battery market. It is estimated to hold more than 80% of the electric vehicle battery market.
