Electric Truck Market Trends

As EV batteries are one of the more expensive components of an electric truck, this has caused the price of electric trucks to plummet. For instance, the cost of an EV battery in 2010 was approximately USD 1,100 per kWh. While the cost is as low as USD 100 per kWh in China, their price dropped to about USD 137 per kWh by 2020. By 2030, the cost of EV batteries is anticipated to drop to about USD 40–60 per kWh, which will significantly lower the cost of EV trucks and bring their pricing closer to that of traditional ICE trucks. The expanding EV batteries industry is another factor driving the electric truck market revenue.

The electric truck market is anticipated to develop due to government incentives and programs. Innovative policies and incentive programs are being implemented by governments worldwide to promote the use of electric vehicles in all market segments (bikes, autos, cars and commercial vehicles). For instance, the Indian government introduced the FAME II amendment and the PLI (production-linked incentive) program for the auto industry, intending to convert 30% of private automobiles, 70% of commercial vehicles, and 80% of two- and three-wheelers to electric by 2030. Therefore, the growing government policies have enhanced the global market CAGR in recent years.

Electric Truck Market Segment Insights:

Electric Truck Range Insights

The Electric Truck Market segmentation, based on range, includes up to 200 miles and above 200 miles. The upto 200 miles category was the largest contributor to the market. Due to their increased efficiency and lower operating costs, these vehicles are employed for short-distance applications. Given the most recent advances from major participants in the segment, the over 200 miles segment, which previously held the second-largest market share, is predicted to take the lead.

Electric Truck End-Use Insights

The Electric Truck Market data has been bifurcated by end-use into last-mile delivery, long-haul transportation, refuse services, field services, and Distribution Services. The last mile sector dominated the market. Delivery services for the last mile have seen a significant transformation and expansion. With the social distance and other Covid-related customs, consumers' reliance on doorstep last-mile delivery has grown significantly. However, in 2021, the field service experienced the fastest growth rate. For field service technicians who maintain these cars, the roads they drive on, and the power supply needed to keep them running, the development of electric vehicles is opening up a whole new world.

Electric Truck Battery Capacity Insights

The Electric Truck Market segmentation, based on battery capacity, includes less than 50kwh, 50-250 kwh, and above 250 kwh. According to estimates, the market's largest section is 50-250 KWh. The 50-250 kWh battery's quick charging at a low cost and good energy efficiency are significant benefits. The global adoption of above 250kwh is anticipated to be fueled by increased technological developments and falling battery prices.

Electric Truck Regional Insights

By Region, the study provides market insights into Europe, North America, Asia-Pacific and the Rest of the World. North America's electric truck market accounted for USD 3.9 billion in 2021 and is expected to exhibit a significant CAGR of 43.2 percent growth during the study period. The North American electric truck market is anticipated to be driven by many industry competitors and significant R&D efforts. For instance, Ford is spending more than USD 6 billion to build the F-150 hybrid vehicle at a plant in Michigan, USA. In 2020, the firm was anticipated to release a brand-new F-150 and a hybrid electric truck version of the F-150. The electric truck market in North America is also anticipated to rise due to significant investment due to increased demand for zero-emission commercial vehicles.
