Report Description

Electric Vehicle Battery
Market was estimated to be around $30 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to display a CAGR of above 20% over the forecast period (2021-2027). An electric vehicle is a vehicle that has the potential to produce no or very less tailpipe emissions (PHEV). These vehicles have significant emission benefits over conventional vehicles & run-on alternate power sources such as battery electricity, natural gas, and gasoline (in case of PHEV). The growth of electric vehicle battery market expanded significantly over the last few years, underpinned by supportive policies and technology advances for clean energy across the world. For instance, as per IEA only about 17,000 electric cars were on the world’s roads in 2010. By 2019, that number had swelled to 7.2 million, 47% of which were in The People’s Republic of China (“China”). Surging demand of EV’s would propel the demand of EV batteries thus increasing the market size of electric vehicle battery market. However, environmental harm caused while manufacture and disposal of batteries would hamper the growth.


Panasonic Corporation, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, LG Chem Ltd., Samsung SDI Co., Ltd., Exide Industries Ltd., BYD Company Limited, Wanxiang Group Corporation, Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. Limited, Tianneng Power International Limited, EnerSys are some of the prominent players operating in the electric vehicle battery market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with more models & innovative vehicles.
