Market Report Description

The Global Electric Powertrain Market size is expected to reach $38.9 billion by 2026, rising at a market growth of 14.3% CAGR during the forecast period. EVs are the cornerstone of the automotive industry, since fossil fuels are predicted to be extinct over the coming decades. Alternative energy is then required to fuel cars, which could be electricity. Several countries have formulated strict policies on alternative fuel cars/EVs. Numerous regulations on pollution have been implemented to reduce CO2 emissions from vehicles. The EV can reduce CO2 emissions and also reduce fossil fuel consumption. The global demand for electric vehicle powertrains has expanded in the last few years. It is projected to accelerate further during the forecast period due to an increase in demand for electric vehicles on the global market. The shortage of infrastructure is a big limitation on the demand for electric powertrains.

Global Electric Powertrain Market Size

Electric Powertrain Market Size

Increased sales of electric vehicles, such as hybrid and pure electric vehicles, are a significant factor of demand expansion. High emission standards by government agencies, such as environmental requirements for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by the United States. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), China VI and BS-VI in India are driving the market. Moreover, the attractive incentives of governments for domestic production and the mass adoption of electric vehicles are expected to proliferate globally on the electric powertrain market.

Electric Powertrain Market Share

The advent of BEVs and PHEVs would have a strong impact on the current and future adoption of the electric powertrain globally. Regulation on CO2 emissions in Europe and the United States is becoming more stringent. Europe has set its emission limits of 95 g/km by 2020 and a further 37.5 percent reduction by 2030, resulting in a limit of 59 g/km. North America has set emission limits of over 99 g/km following the Passenger Vehicle Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards for 2025. In order to reach the pollution standards and avoid penalties, more electrified vehicles will have to be marketed by OEMs in the coming years.

Based on Electric Vehicle Type, the market is segmented into BEV and HEV/PHEV. Based on Component, the market is segmented into Battery, Transmission, Converter, Power Electronics Controller, On-board Charger, Motor/Generator and Others. Based on Regions, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa.
