The Global Electric Vehicle Market size is anticipated to exceed USD 1,821.49 Billion by 2032, Growing at a CAGR of 17.7% from 2022 to 2032. During the forecast period, the global electric vehicle industry is expected to be driven by an increase in demand for safe, environment friendly, and fuel-efficient motor vehicles. Electric or hybrid electric vehicles are designed to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and reduce carbon footprint. Participants in the market are currently focusing their efforts on developing extremely precise electric vehicles that are unaffected by various types of road/terrain and environmental fluctuations.


Market Overview

The electric vehicle is powered by electricity. Electric vehicles are powered by an electric motor. It necessitates a continuous supply of energy from the batteries. In electric vehicles, various types of batteries are used. These include zinc-air batteries, molten salt batteries, lithium-ion batteries, and nickel-based batteries. The primary reason for producing electric vehicles was to reduce pollution. It has gained traction as a result of various technological advancements. It outperforms conventional vehicles due to higher fuel economy, minimal repairs, charging convenience, and smoother driving.


The negative ecological effects of conventional petrol vehicles, as well as the increase in the cost of fuel, have paved the way for the market adoption of alternative fuel vehicles. Buyers are gradually becoming more inclined to purchase battery-powered or hybrid vehicles, which are projected to propel the electric vehicle market. Propulsion is provided by one or more electric motors in all models. Electricity is the primary source of energy for EVs. They do not have an internal combustion engine. The strong demand for alternative fuel vehicles can be attributed to a rapid increase in the market's CAGR.


Vehicles powered by fossil fuels are one of the leading causes of global air pollution. As a result, many governing bodies have been forced to impose stringent emission standards on car manufacturers in order to reduce vehicle emissions. Because BEVs are not powered by traditional fuels like petrol or diesel, consumer demand for BEVs has increased significantly in recent years. EVs also have lower maintenance costs than traditional fuel-powered vehicles, giving them an advantage.

Driving Factors

Increasing EV demand will significantly boost market expansion throughout the forecast period. Governments are providing appealing incentives and policies that promote the purchase of EVs. Several of these incentives involve lower selling prices, no or low registration costs, and free infrastructure for charging EVs at multiple locations. Furthermore, some government agencies around the world exempt import, purchase, and road taxes on the basis of various subsidies. Because of these auto industry subsidies, EV production has increased. Governments have also made substantial infrastructure investments and implemented beneficial policies. Many governments have implemented strict vehicle emission regulations in order to reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere. For example, the European Union established a regulation in 2022 to reduce CO2 emissions from light and medium commercial vehicles by 15% by 2025. The Petroleum Ministry of India stipulated that all automotive manufacturers begin producing BS-VI vehicles by April 1, 2020. The decision was made in order to reduce air pollution in the country. Several regulatory bodies' stringent measures to reduce air pollution are predicted to accelerate the expansion of this sector in the coming years. 


Restraining Factors

EVs outperform traditional gasoline-powered vehicles, but they are more expensive. Because these vehicles are not mass-produced, economies of scale have yet to be accomplished. Furthermore, the lack of infrastructure for electric vehicle charging has proven to be a negative factor affecting market growth. Manufacturers also require significant investment and assets, which may stymie market expansion. However, due to the mass production of EV batteries and developments in technology, the expense of batteries will likely decline during the forecast period.


Market Segmentation

The Global Electric Vehicle Market share is classified into vehicle type, propulsion type, and drive type.


  • The passenger segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global electric vehicle market during the forecast period.  

The global electric vehicle market is categorized by vehicle type into passenger car and commercial vehicle. Among these, the passenger segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global electric vehicle market during the forecast period. The growth can be attributed due the increased sales in India, China, Norway, Germany, and other countries. The existence of EV manufacturers, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and other automotive manufacturers in the region contributes to the region's high EV adoption rate. These factors are expected to contribute to segmental growth throughout the forecast period.


  • The battery electric vehicle segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global electric vehicle market during the forecast period.             

Based on the propulsion type, the global electric vehicle market is divided into battery electric vehicle and hybrid electric vehicle. Among these, the battery electric vehicle segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global electric vehicle market during the forecast period. The growth is driven by factors such as government incentives, increased environmental awareness, advancements in battery technology, and the expanding charging infrastructure. BEVs are completely electric vehicles that use rechargeable batteries to power their electric motors. They lack an internal combustion engine (ICE) and produce no tailpipe emissions. BEVs are becoming more popular as battery technology improves, driving range increases, and there is a growing demand for sustainable transportation.


  •   The front wheel drive segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in the global electric vehicle market during the forecast period.      

Based on the drive type, the global electric vehicle market is divided into all wheel drive, front wheel drive, and rear wheel drive.
