The global new energy car market is evaluated at US$118.244 billion for the year 2019 and is estimated to reach US$521.277billion by 2025 growing at a CAGR of 28.05%. New energy refers to all those types of energy alternative energies, which are any other than fossil fuels. New energy cars are those types of four-wheelers that run with the help of alternative sources of energy that do not burn fossil fuels and even cause less or no harm to the environment such as electricity, solar, and biogas others. The market for new energy cars is projected to witness a rapid growth over the forecast period primarily due to the growing government focus towards the adoption and promotion of vehicles with greener energy technologies. Furthermore, the constantly growing adoption of electric vehicles in both developed and developing economies of the globe owing to the growing disposable income, increasing fuel prices, and increased government spending for the setting up of necessary infrastructure for the easy deployment of electric vehicles. The market is also expected to show decent growth on account of the growing investments by existing automotive manufacturers to enter into the market further shows the potential for the market to witness growth during the next five years. Additionally, the growing efforts by transport providers for the adoption of the electric fleet is also one of the key factor playing a significant role in shaping up the market growth in the coming five years. Moreover, the considerably lower maintenance and running costs of these vehicles is also a key factor supplementing the adoption of new energy cars globally.
Increased Government efforts is driving the market growth
The global new energy car market is primarily being driven by the fact the governments of several countries around the globe are implementing various policies and regulations in the automotive sector with an aim to curb the carbon emissions and protect the environment. This has further led to the increased spending by the governments of various countries for the setting up of necessary infrastructure which will further enable them to deploy NEV cars in a hassle-free manner. For instance, in November 2018 EV Motors India in partnership with DLF, ABB India, and Delta Electronics plans to set up 6500 electric vehicles (EC) charging stations across the country over the next five years.Furthermore, the policies implemented by the governments of several countries to promote the sales of electric vehicles is also significantly driving the market growth in the next five years. For example, Electric Vehicle Initiative, a multi-government policy which was launched under the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM), a high-level dialogue among the Energy ministers of the major economies across the globe. The main aim of this policy is to accelerate the introduction and adoption of electric vehicles worldwide. Also, in June 2017, [email protected] by the CEM for the with the goal of accelerating the deployment of electric vehicles by 30% by the year 2030, thereby positively influencing the market growth over the next five years. Similarly, in developing economies like India and China among others the governments are taking all the necessary steps to promote the sales as well as the production of electric vehicles. For example, the National Electric Mobility Mission Plan 2020, by the government of India, the government is promoting R&D in technology including battery technology, power electronics, motors, system integration, battery management system, testing infrastructure, and ensuring industry participation in the same. Thus, providing an impetus for the market to grow throughout the forecast period. Also, the subsidy schemes on purchasing electric vehicles is also another factor that is augmenting the demand for electric vehicles for both individual as well as enterprise use, thus positively impacting the new energy cars market growth throughout the course of the next five years.
Also, the electric cars have been gaining a lot of traction lately which can be clearly seen from the fact that their deployment has increased exponentially over the past years.
The graph above clearly indicates that the deployment of electric cars globally reached 3.29 million units by the year 2018 from 0.23 million in the year 2013. This can be backed up by the fact that the constantly growing fuel prices, subsidy schemes, and numerous other government support is supporting the growing deployment of electric vehicles throughout the globe. Moreover, the increasing purchasing power coupled with the rapid adoption of sustainable transportation methods has also led to an upsurge in the demand for new energy cars, especially in the developed economies.
The new energy car market has been segmented on the basis of type, end-user, and geography. By type, the classification of the market has been done on the basis of battery electric vehicle, plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, and others. On the basis of end-user, the segmentation of the new energy car market has been done into individual and enterprise. Furthermore, on the basis of geography, the distribution of the market has been done into North America, South America, Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific.
BEVs to hold a decent market share
By type, the battery electric vehicles are anticipated to hold a healthy share in the market throughout the course of the next five years. The primary factor supplementing the growth of this segment includes the presence of a large variety of cars offered by numerous manufacturers under this segment. Also, the growing focus towards the adoption of zero-emission vehicles coupled with growing government focus towards the deployment of electric vehicles are also some of the additional factors bolstering the growth of this segment throughout the course of the next five years. The plug-in hybrid vehicle segment is expected to witness a notable growth during the forecast period. Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are those electric vehicles that use batteries for powering up the electric motor and also use an alternative fuel such as gasoline or diesel for power the other propulsion source such as an internal combustion engine. These vehicles can run on electricity and on fuel also offers a higher fuel economy in comparison with conventional vehicles. The market is poised to grow on account of increasing penetration of PHEVs in various countries. The entry of new players in this segment is also a key factor supplementing the growth over the forecast period.
Enterprise segment to witness considerable growth
By end-user, the individual segment is expected to hold a substantial share in the market. The major factors supporting the share and growth of this segment include the growing purchasing power of the people, especially in the developing economies along with the growing awareness among the users towards the adoption of low-emission vehicles. Also, the benefits of subsidies and low running costs are some of the additional factors which have led to an upsurge in the demand for new energy cars for individual usage.
However, the enterprise segment is anticipated to show considerable growth during the next five years. The booming penetration of EVs by ride-sharing companies has further led to a promising growth of this segment during the next five years. For example, in the year 2019, the Indian Government announced its plant to deploy around 40% of electric feet for the taxi providers throughout the country. Similarly, the companies are also looking forward to increased funding primarily for the adoption of the electric fleet also shows the growth potential of this segment. For example, in March 2019, Ola announced its spin-off electric business unit as a spate unit and also received funding from Tiger Global and Matrix India worth US$56 million.
APAC to show promising growth
Geographically, North America and Europe are anticipated to hold noteworthy market shares throughout the course of the next five years. The presence of a well-established infrastructure and strict pollution policies are some of the key factors supplementing the share of the North American region in the new energy cars market throughout the forecast period. However, the market in the Asia Pacific region is expected to show robust growth during the forecast period on account of increased government spending towards the promotion of sales of electric vehicles in countries like India, China, and South Korea among others.
