Key Market Drivers

An increasing number of populations with an increasing number of demands from the market with improved developed technology have raised the market high. Increased demand is also due to reduced prices over the last 10 years of the batteries. Which are the major source of the power generation of electric cars and the development of batteries on the large scale with increased electrification systems in cars expanded the market rate. Decreased rates of the batteries led to decreased electric car rates and increased demands. Increased demand for electric cars led to less pollution in the regions with no emission of carbon dioxide gas. Expansion of their market due to the contribution of government funding and making available passenger cars for the passengers helped the market to grow high. Market players involved in the manufacturing and production of new improved technology in the electric car market thrived the growth.

The automobile industry invests highly in the manufacturing of electric cars. Customers owning the electric car have got the benefits like free tax, and free-of-cost charging at electric vehicle charging stations. Better performance, high efficiency, low maintenance, environment friendly, and many more have increased the growth also due to increased fuel charges for the normal car and high demand of the market for electric cars.   

Key Market Challenges 

Awareness in the market is less produced to increase the growth of the market and the benefits of the electric car. The electric station produced for the charging of the electric car need to be standardized according to the needs of the vehicle and an instant charging station direct current supplied with 480V different voltage stations should be available according to the electric car. Level 1 charging station involves AC with a voltage of 120V AC, and Level 2 charging station involves 208/240V AC. Development of the charging stations and improve the ecosystem increase the electric car market during the forecast period. Countries in different regions use different patterns of charging. While India has installed CCS and CHAdeMO methods for charging electric cars. Japan utilizes the CHAdeMO method. Need to be more development in a section for charging stations for electric cars. Standardized methods should be developed and easy for customers to charge the electric car. The demand for electric cars in the market raised with the increased revenue share.

Key Market Opportunities
