The automotive industry is one of the largest and fastest-growing industries within the manufacturing sector. Driven largely by innovation and consumer preference, the industry has advanced swiftly over the years owing to the rapid technological changes taking place within the ecosystem. Perhaps one of the most prominent changes in the last decade has been the introduction of Electric Vehicles (EVs) and the subsequent growth in its market. The development of electric vehicles has been a collective effort from governments, authorities, and manufacturers to tackle the deteriorating condition of the environment. Factors, such as rapid urbanization and growing population have led to major global concerns that are hampering the atmosphere and the climatic conditions.
Global warming and burgeoning pollution levels are some of the alarming environmental concerns that have encouraged manufacturers to introduce alternate sources of energy to run automobiles. A major part of the success or failure of electric vehicles depends on the technology and performance delivered by the main component of an electric vehicle viz. the electric vehicle battery. Batteries have been used as secondary power sources ever since the introduction of the first automobile. Furthermore, the introduction of hybrid vehicles in the market increased its importance as the battery was responsible for energy saving functions along with the conventional electrical operations within the automobile. As the demand for conventional vehicles increased rapidly, the conventional lead acid battery used in gasoline-powered vehicles dominated the market for batteries. However, in the current scenario, the conventional vehicles powered by petrol and diesel are being described as the major sources of pollution, as the gases released from the exhaust of these cars contain fumes that are harmful for the atmosphere.
The report provides an in-depth analysis of the current battery technologies that are being used to power electric vehicles. Lithium-ion battery technologies are expected to be the most prominent solution to power EVs in the near future. With the demand for EVs expected to increase significantly during the forecast period, the report discusses the possible short-term and long-term impact of extensive demand on EV batteries and on the various raw materials that are used in its manufacturing. The report also sheds light upon the current scenario of the market, discussing the various patents, regulations, and technological advancements that are encouraging the growth of the entire EV ecosystem. A detailed analysis of the various start-ups within the EV ecosystem is also provided along with their impact on the overall automotive industry.
According to the latest research report by BIS Research, titled ?Global Electric Vehicles Battery Market: Analysis & Forecast – 2017-2026’, global electric vehicles battery market has been fundamentally benefiting from the changing paradigms in governmental regulations and increasing environmental awareness among the consumers. The global electric vehicles battery market by propulsion type has been categorized into: Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV), and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV).
