The global electric vehicle component market was valued at USD 22.5 billion in 2018. Government support for electric vehicle adoption, increasing need to reduce greenhouse gas emission and reducing the cost of components, propelling the growth of the market.
Insight by Component
On the basis of component, the global electric vehicle component market is categorized into battery pack, motor, controller, electric vehicle supply equipment, dc–dc converter, high-voltage cable, power distribution module, thermal management system, and vehicle interface control module, wherein battery pack category held the largest share in the market in 2018. This is due to the fact that battery pack accounts for around 34–51% of the overall cost of electric vehicles, which makes the battery pack category the largest revenue contributor compared to others in the market.
The battery pack is further sub-segmented into battery cell, battery management system (BMS), battery thermal management system, and other ancillary components. Among these segments, the battery cell was the largest revenue generator in 2018 in the market.
Insight by End Use
Based on end use, the electric vehicle component market is segmented into original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and aftermarket. Between these two end users, the higher demand for electric vehicle components was witnessed by the OEMs category in the market in 2018, owing to the increasing manufacturing of electric vehicles across the globe. However, the aftermarket category is expected to witness the faster growth during the forecast period.
Rising preference for induction motors and shift toward lithium–nickel–manganese–cobalt (NMC) oxide batteries from lithium–iron phosphate (LFP) batteries are the key trends observed in the electric vehicle component market, globally.
Global electric vehicle component market has been driven by several key factors, including government support for electric vehicle adoption, increasing need to reduce greenhouse gas emission, and reducing cost of components.
China has an aggressive target to reduce carbon emission and adopt electric vehicles. As reported by Forbes, the central and local government in China spent $ 7.7 billion on electric vehicles subsidiary in 2017. Similarly, in China electric vehicles are exempt from purchase taxes during 2014 – 2017, Chinese government has further extended it to 2020. The Chinese government at Centre offers consumers subsidy renews its plans in every two or three years. For battery electric vehicles, subsidies were around 40 to 60% of the vehicle cost. Also, in 2018, the country implemented dual-credit policy which targets automakers selling passenger vehicles based on their average fuel consumption credits and new energy vehicle credits. This applies to the manufacturers of 30,000 vehicles or more annually. All the above stated factors help in the growth of the electric vehicle component market.
High initial cost of electric vehicles is hindering the growth of the electric vehicle component market, globally.
Geographically, Asia-Pacific has accounted for the largest share in the electric vehicle component market, globally and is predicted to grow significantly during the forecast period. The growth of this market is attributed towards the huge adoption of electric vehicles in the region, led by China, than any other region. Increasing environmental concern, and rising government support for electric vehicles in the form of subsidies are the major factors driving the demand for electric vehicles in China.
Some of the key players operating in the global electric vehicle component market are Siemens AG, DENSO Corp., LG Chem Ltd., Tesla Inc., Hitachi Ltd., ABB Ltd., Samsung SDI Co. Ltd., BYD Co. Ltd., Robert Bosch GmbH, Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. Ltd., Panasonic Corp., OptimumNano Energy Co. Ltd., Mitsubishi Electric Corp., and LG Innotek Co. Ltd.
