Electric Utility Vehicle Market - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2018-2028

To meet operational needs, the majority of utility vehicles are designed with all-wheel drive (AWD) and four-wheel drive (4WD). Utility vehicles have a wide range of applications, including industrial activities, like the transportation of commodities, agricultural applications, and solutions for passenger transit. In recent years, electric utility cars have gained popularity due to their fuel-efficient operation and great noise reduction.

An electric vehicle is a type of vehicle that is operated by one or more electric motors. It can be fueled externally by a collector system or autonomously by a battery (sometimes charged with solar panels, or by converting fuel to electricity using fuel cells or a generator). EVs include surface and underwater watercraft, road and rail vehicles, electric airplanes, and electric spacecraft, among others.

EVs initially appeared a very long time ago, when electricity was one of the preferred ways for motor vehicle propulsion, offering a level of comfort and ease of operation that gasoline cars of the period could not match. In addition, internal combustion engines dominated the propulsion of automobiles and trucks, but electric power remained prevalent in trains as well as smaller vehicles of all sizes. Electric vehicles are either fueled by a collector system that collects electricity from charging station deployments or by self-charging equipment such as turbochargers, regenerative braking systems, and others.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Despite the fact that sales of electric vehicles were temporarily hampered by the pandemic, it is anticipated that the industry would therefore rebound with a higher growth rate than the previous year, due to the consistent increase in fuel prices and rising concerns about environmental pollution, as well as the provision of subsidies by various governments. The growth of the electric utility vehicle market was significantly hampered due to the pandemic; however, it is estimated to increase at a rapid pace as a result of the increasing efforts of governments all over the world to boost the automotive industry in their countries in addition to the growing adoption of electric vehicles due to their cost-effectiveness and environmental benefits.

Market Growth Factors

An Increase In The Deployment Of Battery Switching Paradigm To Reduce Charging Time

Battery switching at the electric vehicle (EV) charging stations is the latest trend that eliminates the time electric utility vehicle users spend charging batteries. Although level 3 EV charging and ultra-fast charging can refuel an electric vehicle in 30–60 minutes and 15–30 minutes, respectively, they are not interoperable with electric utility vehicles. Consequently, battery changing is an excellent option for electric utility cars. In developed countries, various companies have deployed more than 300 battery switching stations in recent years and are significantly increasing their efforts in order to install more switching stations in the coming years.

The Exponential Growth Of The Warehousing And Ecommerce Industry

The rising requirement to support the hub-and-spoke model in the e-commerce, automotive component manufacturing, consumer products, and electronics sectors is leading to an increase in the number of warehouses per country.in the coming years, the warehouse and fulfillment industry is anticipated to increase considerably, hence driving the demand for electric utility vehicles. Moreover, the increasing demand for industrial electric utility vehicles is anticipated to result from a rise in the number of warehouses. In turn, this will increase sales for the industrial segment of the electric utility vehicle market.

Market Restraining Factors

The Significant Cost Of EUVs And The Presence Of Ice Counterparts

Users of utility vehicles often find it challenging to make the transition to more advanced electric versions of already existing models due to the additional high cost. Recent events in the market for electric utility vehicles have prompted original equipment manufacturers to increase the amount of money they invest in the development of products like these. This will result in an increase in the price of these vehicles because OEMs will want to recoup their investments. ATV model prices vary depending on feature requirements.
