Changing consumer preferences are fueling the increased demand for sustainable transportation. Modern consumers are exhibiting a high degree of environmental consciousness and are increasingly choosing goods and services that reflect their values. This has resulted in a heightened interest in EVs as consumers endeavor to reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to a more environmentally friendly future.

Governments worldwide are implementing policies to boost the pace of domestic EV production, aiming to attract both local and foreign automotive companies. This includes providing incentives for setting up manufacturing facilities, tax incentives for land used to set up manufacturing facilities, and exemption from electricity and stamp duties. Furthermore, the governments have been offering subsidies and incentives on the retail price to potential buyers, thereby reducing the initial upfront cost and attracting consumers across all income groups to opt for EVs.

Despite experiencing impressive expansion in recent years, the EV industry is witnessing numerous constraints that could hinder its growth potential. Constraints include limited charging stations, high procurement costs, range concerns, and a limited supply of chips. Inadequate charging infrastructure lowers the convenience of EV adoption for consumers. Moreover, high initial costs and battery range anxieties deter consumer acceptance. The global shortage of semiconductor chips has posed significant challenges for the EV industry, impacting production, pricing, and supply chains. Resolving these constraints is vital for expediting the industry growth and widespread adoption of EVs.

Electric Vehicles (EV) Market Segmentation by Product Type

The market is segregated by product into BEV, FHEV, MHEV (48V), PHEV, EREV, FCEV, and PFCEV segments. The BEV segment, which holds the largest market share is projected to capture more than 60% of the market by 2031. BEVs emit zero tailpipe emissions, rendering them a cleaner and more environmentally sustainable option than traditional internal combustion engine vehicles. To bolster their adoption, governments worldwide are implementing more stringent emissions regulations and providing incentives, accelerating the growth of BEVs.

As concerns about climate change and air pollution increase, governments worldwide are progressively enacting bans on sales of new internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. These bans, designed to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and enhance air quality, are compelling automakers to expedite their shift towards electric mobility, propelling the demand for non-emission transportation options, such as BEV.
