Supportive government initiatives and schemes to promote the adoption of sustainable mobility solutions to reduce the pollution level from vehicles will propel the market expansion. For instance, in April 2021, the French government announced a scheme to provide its residents with USD 3209.2 on the purchase of e-bikes and USD 1925.5 on the purchase of e-bicycles in exchange for old bikes & bicycles. The specific grant, a part of the national car scrappage scheme, aims to cover electric bikes and cargo bikes to remove traditional polluting vehicles from the roads.

Rapid investments in R&D activities by industry participants to develop advanced battery solutions for BEVs will foster the market progression. For instance, in October 2021, Tesla announced the use of Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) based batteries in all its standard range of electric cars to increase its profit margin. The new LFP batteries have a longer life expectancy, require no maintenance, are lightweight, enhance discharge & charge efficiency, and are easier to recycle compared to nickel-cobalt aluminum battery packs. Moreover, advancements in electric powertrains including improvements in torque and power to operate across diversified environment conditions will further accelerate the industry growth.

The major factors challenging the industry expansion are limited charging infrastructure and higher charging time. To overcome these restraints, industry participants are collaborating with government bodies to build charging infrastructure to support the acceptance of BEVs.

In 2020, the automobile industry was negatively impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, impacting the overall battery electric vehicle market. The global lockdown and stringent travel restrictions imposed by government authorities resulted in the shutdown of manufacturing facilities and unavailability of electric components, Li-ion battery packs & labor. This also resulted in postponements in investments, R&D activities, and subsequently the launch of new BEVs, reducing the market revenue of BEV companies. However, the industry is predicted to observe steady growth over the forecast period owing to supportive government policies and stimulus measures to achieve emission standards.

Emerging automotive technologies are accelerating electric car usage

The electric cars segment in the BEV market is slated to witness 12% growth rate through 2027. Electric cars are equipped with technologically advanced features and facilities to improve driver safety such as sensors, telematics systems, cameras, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and others. These advanced safety features have proven their effectiveness in saving lives on the road. Market players are focusing on launching electric cars integrated with advanced features to widen their customer base.
