There shall be a growth in the demand for oh this is used in the electric vehicles due to the adoption of various initiatives taken by the governments in order to increase the production of the electric vehicles in the developing as well as the developed nations across the globe. Increase in the demand for electric vehicles will increase the demand for the electric vehicle adhesives market. In order to combat the issues related to the environment like the global warming several initiatives were initiated by the governments like the electric vehicle's initiative. This initiative focused on increasing the production of electric vehicles and promoting electric vehicles. As the increased use of electric vehicles will help in reducing the carbon footprint the market for the electric vehicle others is expected to grow during the forecast period.

Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic the global market for the electric vehicle adhesives was affected to a great extent. As the manufacturing industries had come to a halt the demand for the electric vehicle adhesives had dropped to a great extent. In order to comply with the policies of the government that restrained the movement of raw materials and prohibited the human contact the market had come to a halt. There were major delays in the production of the vehicles as the supply chain logistics were hampered to a great extent.

There are many reasons why the market growth will be hampered during the forecast period. The expense incurred in the manufacturing of the battery is high due to the use of the technology that makes use of expensive material. The use of this technology which makes use of expensive materials may not be efficient in providing different ranges in the electric vehicles which will hamper the growth of the market. The unavailability of a large number of charging stations for the electric vehicles is another barrier which shall hinder the growth of the market.

The demand for electric vehicles has not grown well as there is of fear of getting stuck at a location which has no charging station. It is estimated that the demand for electric vehicles will grow during the forecast period as there has been an increase in the investment which shall provide a large number of charging stations during the forecast period. Another factor that hampers the growth of the market is that of the lack of standardization. Electric vehicles may not always be compatible with no certain type of charging station. In different countries different voltage is used for fast charging. The electric charger used for the electric vehicles manufactured by Tesla makes use of a supercharger which is not compatible with the other electric vehicles. All of these reasons will restrain the growth of the electric vehicle adhesives market during the forecast period.
