The report looks at the global automotive high voltage battery market covering technology and system suppliers and component outlook. The report also determines the key growth areas, drivers and road blocks for the supplier ecosystem and analyses their impact in the near future. It shares insights on the technology trends and developments related to the global automotive high voltage battery market.
Among the different components of the electric vehicle (EV), the battery is one of the most important parts used in EVs. As the EV market is expected to grow significantly in the coming years, the battery market is expected to follow suit.
Presently, the major aim of manufacturers is to increase the driving range of EVs, because consumers demand a higher driving range. To increase the driving range, manufacturers are working on high energy density battery cells for putting additional energy in the same volume. Li-Ion battery technology was the dominant battery technology used in EVs in 2016. Li-Ion battery global demand in EV & HEV vehicles is driven by demand from Greater China, followed by Europe and North America.
Although at present a liquid electrolyte-based lithium ion (li-ion) battery serves that purpose to a certain extent, albeit not without its disadvantages, another promising technology is staking a claim as a long-term replacement – the solid-state battery technology. Although still in its infancy, solid-state battery technology has caught the attention of automotive companies, owing to the technology’s significant advantages over the current generation lithium-ion batteries.
As the battery market is directly dependent on the EV market, the battery market is growing due to government support for EVs and growing demand for fuel-efficient vehicles. In order to reduce high emission levels, government bodies of different countries are supporting the use of EVs. Moreover, governments are also providing subsidies and tax benefits to propel the production of EVs globally. In countries such as India, China, France, USA, Norway and UK, the governmental bodies support automobile manufacturers, encouraging them to deploy charging stations and manufacture EVs.
It has been analyzed that most OEMs are either dependent on one supplier for battery packs or they manufacture their own battery packs. In the recent past, OEMs started manufacturing their own batteries rather than sourcing them from suppliers. The global market for a battery pack is highly consolidated, with one supplier making up almost one half of total production volumes in 2016. The market was largely dominated by Primearth EV Energy, which accounted for almost half of the market.
