Traction Battery Market, By Application

Electric vehicles traction battery market is anticipated to grow over 13% by 2024. Strengthening government policies along with growing concerns to reduce GHG emissions, will stimulate the business outlook.The growth across the business is primarily attributed to the government led tax incentives and ambitious targets announced by electric automakers to promote EV’s across the developed countries.

Rapid industrialization along with changing consumer preference toward electric forklifts will foster the industrial traction battery market. The burgeoning industry expansion is significantly attributed to escalating ecommerce business activities along with the indispensable use of electric forklifts to enhance efficiency and sustainability of businesses operations.

Traction Battery Market, By Chemistry

Lead acid traction battery market is predicted to expand by 9% by 2024. Higher cyclability, lower price and high resistance to vibration are some of the key features that will accelerate the penetration of these batteries across the industry landscape. Lead Acid offer reliable and robust power source for applications including electric vehicles, forklifts, golf carts, floor scrubbers, and ebikes.

Li-Ion traction battery market will witness a robust growth of over 13% by 2024. The industry growth is attributed to the sharp decline in costs and high charging efficiency. In addition, these batteries on account of their high energy density and design characteristics will continue to gain dominance over lead acid across electric vehicles applications. Furthermore, its rapid adoption in ebikes outside China and high power to weight ratio, makes it suitable for battery electric vehicles.

High gravimetric and volumetric energy density when compared with available counterparts makes Ni-MH, more suitable for HEV’s. Higher power density, design characteristics and capability to operate at normal ambient temperatures are some of the key underlined parameters which will encourage the product adoption. Around 70% of the hybrid electric vehicle globally are equipped with Ni-MH battery, thus creating a positive outlook for the global market.

Traction Battery Market, By Region

The U.S. market will witness a growth on account of the invariable need to electrify the transport sector along with federal mandates, purchase incentives, and objectives pertaining to energy efficiency & carbon emissions. For instance, the U.S. government introduced tax incentives of USD 7,500 for BEV and PHEV cars purchased in and after 2010. In addition, shifting consumer preference toward electric forklift across the material handling industry will further stimulate the product penetration.

Europe market, in 2017 was valued over USD 6 billion and will witness growth on account of increasing adoption of EV sales driven by stringent goals to decrease the carbon emission contributed by the automotive sector. The recent announcements to ban conventional petrol and diesel cars in France and the UK by 2040 will enhance regional growth rate, thereby creating significant growth prospects for the industry.

Asia Pacific market is set to witness a growth over 11 % by 2024. Favorable policy adoptions and growing concerns to curb the emission levels contributed by the automotive sector will stimulate the traction battery market. The growth in the region is attributed to the increasing investments across major battery manufacturing countries including China, Japan, and South Korea. In India, government led initiatives toward e-mobility and development of adequate charging infrastructure will create new opportunities for the industry players.
