Growth Factors

Significant number of initiatives taken by the government of various countries such as tax rebate, subsidies & grant, and other various non-financial benefits in terms of car registration, and access to car pool lane expected to drive the sale of electric vehicles in coming years. For instance, in November 2019, Germany car manufacturers have raised their cash incentives for electric cars to move away the transition from combustion engine to battery-powered engines to reduce harmful emission. Countries, such as U.S., China, and different countries in Europe, have registered significant growth in the sale of electric vehicle in the past few decades that in turn, will contribute to the market growth.

However, lack of charging infrastructure along with variations in charging load & lack of standardization are some of the major factors analyzed to hinder the market growth. Different regions such as China, Europe, U.S., Japan, Korea, and others have different standards for electric vehicle charging. Some of the electric vehicle manufacturer such as Tesla Inc. is focusing on global standardization of charging infrastructure to overcome this drawback. Nevertheless, rising adoption of electric vehicles in government and commercial sectors is anticipated to drive the market. For instance, in 2020, UK government has approved 200 electric buses with an ambition to make all buses fully electric by 2025 that could save nearly 7,400 tonnes of CO2 every year.

  • Increase in demand for fuel-effective, high- performance, & low- emigration vehicles

This technology is anticipated to develop by the coming 5-6 times. Therefore, growth of self- driving electric vehicle technology is likely to bring growth opportunities for the market in the forthcoming time period.

Market Dynamics


Growing government initiatives

  • Governments are spending a lot of money on incentives and subsidies to persuade people to buy electric cars. Governments throughout the world are taking initiatives that are likely to boost demand for electric vehicles in the coming decade. Electric vehicles have been regulated in developing countries, and fuel economy criteria have been established in all countries. In addition, they offer incentives and subsidies to electric vehicle makers and buyers. Thus, this factor is driving the market growth. 


Lack of standardization

  • The non-presence of standardization among nations may have an effect on charging station connection and hinder market expansion. The usage of several charging standards around the world creates a hurdle to electric vehicle charging station harmonization. Standardization of charging points would make it easier to charge electric vehicles in public and contribute to a faster increase in electric vehicle demand around the world. As a result, lack of standardization is restricting the growth of the market. 


Declining costs of electric vehicle batteries

  • Due to technological breakthroughs and the mass production of electric vehicle batteries in huge quantities, the cost of electric vehicle batteries has decreased over the last decade. Because electric vehicle batteries are one of the most expensive components of the car, this has resulted in a reduction in the cost of electric vehicles.


Lack of charging infrastructure

  • In many places around the world, there are few electric vehicle charging facilities. As a result, public electric vehicle charging stations for electric vehicles are becoming less available, lowering uptake. Electric vehicle charging infrastructure is being installed in many countries, although most countries, with the exception of a few states, have not been able to establish the requisite number of charging stations.

Electric Vehicle Market Share, By Product, 2021 (%)

Moreover, the cost associated with BEV is greater as compared to the PHEV. The PHEV is expected to witness the fastest CAGR of around 43.5% owing to numerous benefits over BEV, some are low battery cost with smaller battery size and longer driving range as they are equipped with liquid fuel tank and internal combustion engine. Additionally, many EV manufacturers such as Volkswagen Group and General Motors are focusing on multi-platform technology with large attention towards PHEV as they can be refueled at any gas station while BEVs can only be charged at public charging stations. Public charging spots are far between and very few in the city. Thus, PHEV offers flexibility and freedom to the drivers. In January 2020, Volkswagen AG increased its plug-in electric car sales by 60%, from nearly 50,000 to over 80,000 in 2019.

The fuel cell electric vehicles segment is anticipated to grow at the loftiest CAGR during the cast period.
