An electric vehicle battery is a type of energy accumulator that stores power for use by an alternating or continuous current engine. However, its significance goes well beyond this. The battery is what makes these vehicles sustainable and frees them from their reliance on fossil fuels. In the last decade, the battery industry has seen an extraordinary change. The average range of electric vehicles has significantly risen. The lowering price of lithium-ion batteries, which have dominated the market in recent years, has been a major aspect of the electric mobility revolution. With growing concerns about the environmental effects of conventional automobiles, governments all over the world are supporting the use of alternative-fuel vehicles. EVs are zero-emission cars that are becoming popular for clean public transportation in several nations. To stimulate the adoption of EVs, some national governments provide financial incentives like tax exemptions and refunds, subsidies, reduced parking and toll rates for EVs, and free charging. As a result, the need for EV batteries is rapidly increasing. However, the rise in lead pollution from electric vehicles, high import duties on EV batteries, and volatile raw material prices are expected to hinder market growth. Additionally, advancements in lithium-ion batteries and an increase in EV charging facilities are expected to lure market attractiveness in the future.
According to the report titled "Australia Electric Vehicle Battery Market Research Report, 2027" published by Actual Market Research (ActualMR), the market size of the Australia electric vehicle battery market is increasing enormously in the forecasted period from 2022 to 2027. The Australia passenger vehicle segment is expanding, whereas the commercial vehicle segment is expected to grow at an exponential rate. As a result of the increased demand for EVs, major vehicle manufacturers are joining the EV industry. Several major manufacturers, including Tesla, Toyota, Tata Motors, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Mahindra & Mahindra, and Hyundai, are developing EV cars in order to strengthen their positions in the automobile business. Aside from that, new start-ups like OLA are also involved in the EV industry. Electric vehicle development is projected to accelerate in the near future, with major manufacturers showing interest in the EV industry, which would in turn drive demand for EV batteries. When compared to lead-acid batteries, lithium batteries are more efficient and charge faster. It has a longer lifespan, is more efficient, and produces consistent, steady, and long-lasting power. As a result, this technology is gaining traction in solar energy backup systems and electric automobiles. The commercial vehicle segment is expected to drive the future demand for electric vehicle batteries as it is efficient, cost-effective and has zero emissions.
In this report, the EV battery market is segmented by propulsion type, by battery type, and by vehicle type. A BEV needs more energy absorption to meet the higher kinetic energies of a heavier vehicle, as well as a stronger roof structure to withstand higher roof crush loads. AHSS grades have more strength per unit density than competitive materials, giving BEVs an edge. A PHEV propels itself using stored electrical energy, reducing gasoline usage by the combustion engine. This opens up the possibility of driving solely in electric mode and reducing emissions in crowded cities throughout the world. The country's plug-in hybrid automobile market is progressively expanding. Electric vehicles are more efficient, and when paired with the cost of power, charging an electric vehicle is less expensive than filling it up with gasoline or diesel for your travel needs. The battery is what makes these cars sustainable and frees them from their reliance on fossil fuels.
Government incentives, the presence of individual investors, and a technological edge are bolstering demand for commercial electric vehicles. This will result in an increased demand for electric batteries for these vehicles in the forecast period. The rise in fuel prices and increasing global warming due to rising temperatures and emissions are driving the need for electric vehicles. Compactness and cost effectiveness are other features driving the EV battery market for commercial vehicles. Further, the increasing demand for plug-in vehicles, the growing need for battery-operated material-handling equipment in industries due to automation, the continued development of smart devices and the growing adoption of lithium-ion batteries in the renewable energy sector are expected to propel market demand. The major factors driving the demand for electric vehicle batteries are their peak electricity demands and their flexibility to the grid in terms of energy storage that helps overcome fluctuations in renewable energy sources.
Automotive and related sectors were hit hard due to the pandemic effects. They had to shut down facilities to manufacture EV vehicles, which resulted in a decline in EV battery demand during the period of the pandemic. They had to work in limited capacities to be in spare of government guidelines and norms. The EV battery manufacturing facilities came to a standstill due to the non-availability of raw materials, impacting the supply and demand chains harshly. The battery and other components were not easily available. However, the market has recovered and the manufacturers are now concentrating on increasing the sales of electric vehicles in the world markets. That would create demand for electric vehicle batteries in the forecast period.
PHEVs (plug-in hybrid electric vehicles), they use batteries to operate the electric motor and fuel such as gasoline to power up the internal combustion engine (ICE). The vehicle’s batteries can be charged using a wall outlet or any charging equipment. The vehicles typically run-on electric power until the charge gets over and then it automatically switches to use the ICE.
The commercial EVs are powered with electricity, instead of fuel or gas. The vehicles can be vans, trucks, agricultural vehicles, buses and construction machineries. The energy to run these vehicles comes from the batteries, which are rechargeable from the power grid. In an EV the electric motor converts the electrical energy into the mechanical energy, to run the vehicle. So as per this report the commercial EVs are supposed to grow with the highest CAGR by the of the forecasted year.
The EV batteries like lithium-ion and lead-acid batteries are commonly used in EVs. Compared to other batteries the lithium-ion batteries are mostly used in EVs, these batteries rechargeable battery which used EV as well as in many other portable electronics. The battery has high energy density than other lead-acid and nickel-cadmium batteries. The lithium-ion batteries are the safest batteries than others. The rise of environmental issues has encouraged the car manufacturers to introduce electric vehicles in market today and due to this reason, the EV batteries are also in trend now. For EVs lithium-ion batteries are known to be the best ones, because they rechargeable and high density.
