EV powertrain market in Asia-Pacific is expected to grow from US$ 20.27 Bn in 2018 to US$ 59.10 Bn by the year 2027. This represents a CAGR of 12.8% from the year 2019 to 2027.
The EV manufacturers are challenged with bridging the gap between demand and supply of EV components such as batteries, battery management systems, and powertrains, among others. The steep demand curve for EVs among the customers is pressurizing the manufacturers to order a higher number of powertrains and other components, which is leading to the growth of the EV powertrain market. The battery-electric vehicle (BEV) powertrain is the prominent and most demanding powertrain in the current scenario, owing to the maximum manufacturing of BEVs. The count of new BEVs models is anticipated, which would demand advanced technology powertrain, thereby, upsurging the market size for the same. Manufacturers are also focusing on lowering the prices to achieve a significant share of the EV powertrain market in emerging economies.
China is the largest EV manufacturing country, and the adoption rate of EVs is highest worldwide, several international EV manufacturers are investing in the country and are expanding their production units to the country. For instance, Tesla is investing US$ 2.0 Bn in a new factory in Shanghai, China, for the production of the Model 3 sedan and future vehicles. Volkswagen has also adopted a similar strategy to capitalize more than US$ 10 Bn in China for over six years. Other manufactures such as Mercedes-Benz, Audi AG, and Jaguar Land Rover Limited are also eyeing on monetizing in China with an objective to build a respective state-of-art production facility to boost their EV production and sales volumes. Thus, with the rise in monetization in the EV industry in China, the demand for EV powertrains is expected to bolster in the coming years, which would result in growth in the EV powertrain market.
The EV powertrain market by application is segmented into passenger cars and commercial vehicles. The automotive industry is expanding at a rapid rate over the years across the globe. In passenger cars, the demand for electrified vehicles or hybrid vehicles is surging owing to the fact that these vehicles overcome the challenges posed by the ICE vehicles. The increase in awareness among vehicular customers related to the benefits of electric vehicles has resulted in the downsizing of fossil fuel vehicles. Also, several governmental initiatives have propelled the growth of electric passenger cars over the years. The rise in the number of electric car manufacturing directly impact on the procurement of powertrains. This factor is the key parameter catalyzing the EV powertrain market through the passenger car segment.
