Supportive government policies and regulations pertaining to the increasing usage of alternative fuels to power automobile are expanding the battery electric vehicles market size over the forecast timeframe. In 2016, the Canadian government introduced the Clean Fuel Standard, that enables industry players to use a wide range of green fuels, including electricity, hydrogen, and other renewable fuels for powering vehicles, thereby reducing carbon emissions considerably.

Continuous focus of the government on reducing the dependence on conventional fuel automobile and improve issues related to environmental pollution will drive industry growth. For instance, the California government announced its plans to deploy around 5 million zero emission vehicles on road by 2030 and around 250,000 electric vehicle charging stations by 2025. Further, the government also aims to cut down on greenhouse emissions by around 40% below the 1990 levels by 2030. Ongoing initiatives will drive the market over the study timeframe.

The increasing prevalence of greenhouse gases and carbon emissions across the globe are forcing governments to take stringent steps and introduce policies to curb pollution levels significantly. Rising automotive production along with the availability of extensive public transportation across the region based on conventional fuels further contributes towards increasing pollution levels significantly.

The increasing demand for battery electric vehicles is attributed to benefits offered by such vehicles including no emissions, noise, along with higher efficiency. The lower maintenance cost associated with the vehicles along with reduced vibrations, supported by the availability of instant torque and power output will further strengthen the battery electric vehicles market share.

Industry participants are developing battery technology to enhance vehicle performance. Automobile OEMs including Mercedes and BMW are installing Na/NiCl2 battery that offers advantages including superior cell voltage and cycling performance. Moreover, the batteries are unaffected by constant freeze thaw cycles due to moderate differences between ceramic separator’s thermal expansion coefficients and other battery components.

High vehicle cost will restrict the market demand over the study timeframe. The implementation of advanced technologies, including fast charging and water proofing for improved vehicle performance in diversified climatic conditions, contribute significantly toward increasing the overall vehicle cost. Additionally, costs associated with the prototyping, testing, and compliance to stringent government regulations prior to commercialization further increase the vehicle cost significantly.
