Electric commercial vehicle Market Opportunity

  • Government Initiatives to Encourage Adoption of Electric Commercial Vehicles

The governments and respective state governments of various countries are taking certain initiatives to increase the awareness about using electric commercial vehicles to control the adverse impact on the environment and foreign exchange reserves. For instance, the International Council on Clean Transportation is working with the Zero Emission Vehicle regulation, progressive electric utility policies, greater model availability & marketing, consumer rebates, access to carpool lanes on congested highways, extensive electric vehicle charging infrastructure, access to high-occupancy vehicle lanes, and continued growth of local electric vehicle promotions. This is as crude oil prices are continuously increasing.

The electric vehicle reduces the amount of noise and pollution generated compared to conventional vehicles. Commercial vehicles offer opportunities for more transport work at night, thus reducing the burden on the roads during the day. Therefore, many electric vehicle manufacturing companies are investing in product development to cater to the increasing demand from customers. For instance, in 2021, Renault Trucks developed the first electric truck, D Wide ZE, equipped with a tipper and a crane for Noblet Group and dedicated to the construction site approach. Thus, the government initiatives to encourage the adoption are expected to drive the growth of the Electric commercial vehicle Market during the forecast period.

The government initiatives are at a primary stage, as various countries are planning to introduce several regulations and initiatives to encourage the adoption of electric vehicles in the next few years. Hence, the impact of the government initiatives to encourage the adoption of electric commercial vehicles on the Electric commercial vehicle Market is expected to shift from low to high over the forecast period.

Electric commercial vehicle Market propulsion Segment Insights:

Electric commercial vehicle propulsion Insights

Based on propulsion, the Electric commercial vehicle Market segmentation includes BEV and PHEV, FCEV. The BEV segment held the majority share in 2022, contributing around ~ 61.3% to the market revenue. Battery electric vehicles (BEVs) are powered exclusively by electricity stored in a rechargeable battery pack. This battery pack powers an electric motor which turns the wheels and propels the vehicle. BEVs do not produce emissions at the tailpipe because they do not burn fossil fuels like gasoline or diesel. Instead, they draw electricity from the grid, which may be generated from a variety of sources including renewable energy like solar or wind power. To recharge a BEV, drivers can use public charging infrastructure or charge at home using a dedicated charger. BEVs have the advantage of being significantly more energy-efficient than conventional automobiles. This is since internal combustion engines waste a lot of energy as heat and electric motors are far more efficient than these engines. Regenerative braking is another way that BEVs can recover energy, which increases their range. BEVs are increasingly being used for commercial applications, such as delivery vans and trucks. These vehicles offer lower operating costs and reduced emissions compared to traditional commercial vehicles. Battery-electric vehicles (BEVs) are becoming increasingly popular in the commercial vehicle market, particularly for applications such as last-mile delivery, urban transportation, and short-haul trips.

Electric commercial vehicle Market Component Segment Insights:

Electric commercial vehicle Component Insights

Based on Component, the Electric commercial vehicle Market segmentation includes Electric Motor, Electric Vehicle Battery, Hydrogen Fuel Cell and Others. The Electric Vehicle Battery segment held the majority share in 2022 contributing around ~50.9% to the market revenue. An electric vehicle battery (EVB, also known as a traction battery) is a rechargeable battery used to power the electric motors of a battery electric vehicle (BEV) or hybrid electric vehicle (HEV). As opposed to starting, lighting, and ignition (SLI) batteries, electric vehicle batteries are typically lithium-ion batteries with excellent power-to-weight ratios and energy densities. Electric vehicle batteries are rechargeable batteries that are used to power electric vehicles, such as cars, buses, and trucks. Lithium-ion cells, which have a high capacity for energy storage and release, are often used to make batteries for electric vehicles. Electric vehicle batteries are designed to be recharged repeatedly, giving them a longer lifespan compared to traditional batteries. Moreover, they tend to be smaller and lighter, which makes them easier to maintain and install. Despite their benefits, electric vehicle batteries can be more expensive than traditional batteries and require charging infrastructure, which can be costly to set up and maintain. Additionally, these batteries are sensitive to extreme temperatures, and their performance can be affected by hot or cold weather conditions. Electric vehicle batteries offer several advantages over traditional batteries, including reduced emissions, quieter operation, and lower long-term operating costs.

Electric commercial vehicle Market Vehicle Type Segment Insights:

Electric commercial vehicle Vehicle Type Insights

Based on the Vehicle Type, the Electric commercial vehicle Market segmentation includes Bus, Truck and Others. By Vehicle Type, Bus segment hold the majority market share in 2022 contributing 37.7% of the market share. Electric buses are becoming increasingly popular as businesses and organizations prioritize sustainability and environmental responsibility. With zero emissions, quieter operation, and lower maintenance requirements, electric buses offer a number of advantages over traditional diesel or gasoline-powered buses. Additionally, electric buses can often provide cost savings over time due to the lower cost of electricity compared to diesel or gasoline. There are three main types of electric buses available on the market: battery-electric, plug-in hybrid electric, and fuel cell electric buses. Battery-electric buses are the most common and rely on rechargeable batteries to power the electric motor. Although electric buses offer many advantages, they can come with a higher initial cost than traditional buses and require charging infrastructure, which can be costly to install and maintain. Despite these challenges, electric commercial vehicles, including buses, are a promising option for companies and organizations looking to reduce their carbon footprint and operate more sustainably. Several manufacturers offer electric buses for commercial use, including BYD, Proterra, and New Flyer. Some cities, such as London and Shenzhen, have already deployed large fleets of electric buses, and others are following suit as part of efforts to reduce air pollution and combat climate change.
