High Voltage Battery Market

The global High Voltage Battery Market, by value, is projected to grow to USD 89.1 billion by 2025 from USD 8.9 billion in 2018, at a CAGR of 38.95% during the forecast period. The increase in government spending toward smart cities will drive the high voltage battery market for electric buses and trucks. Additionally, the demand for high voltage systems for electric vehicles is further expected to drive the demand for high voltage batteries. These systems offer several benefits over conventional ICE vehicles such as energy efficiency, reduced emissions, quiet and smooth operation, and stronger acceleration. Hence, a higher voltage required to propel various systems of a vehicle also drives the high voltage battery market.

Primary Research

Extensive primary research has been conducted after acquiring an understanding of the high voltage battery market scenario through secondary research. Several primary interviews have been conducted with market experts from both the demand- (OEMs) and supply-side (battery manufacturers) across major regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia Oceania, and the Rest of the World. Primary data has been collected through questionnaires, emails, and telephonic interviews. In the canvassing of primaries, we have strived to cover various departments within organizations, such as sales, operations, and administration, to provide a holistic viewpoint in our report.

After interacting with industry experts, we also conducted brief sessions with highly experienced independent consultants to reinforce the findings from our primaries. This, along with the in-house subject matter experts’ opinions, has led us to the findings as described in the remainder of this report.

High Voltage Battery Bus Market (At Selected Country Level)

The high voltage battery market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 38.95% from 2018 to 2025, and the market size is projected to grow from USD 8.9 billion in 2018 to USD 89.1 billion by 2025. The increasing demand for higher driving range vehicles, significant focus toward smart transportation, and advancement toward battery chemistry are expected to play a significant role in the growth of the high voltage battery market.

The high voltage battery market for bus is estimated to be the largest market during the forecast period.

As the energy requirement of electric buses is very high, currently 90% of the electric buses fall under the high voltage category. According to primary insights, this number is expected to be 100% by 2025. With aggressive incentives and mandates from the Chinese government, the country has already proved themselves as a leader in clean technologies. The electric buses are expected to dominate the high voltage market, by vehicle type, due to the rising adoption of electric buses for public transportation in cities across the globe. Moreover, in the passenger car segment, the current high voltage battery market is driven by the BEV industry leader, Tesla.

In driving range, the >550 miles segment is projected to grow at fastest rate during forecast period.

Currently, majority of the electric buses and passenger cars fall under 251–400 miles and 401–550 miles drving range. However, with advacement in battery chemistry and growing fast charging network, elctric buses are expected to shift gradually toward >550 miles range. A similar trend is expected for electric trucks, as the market for electric trucks is under development phase. However, successful electric transportation also drives the demand for > 550 miles battery electric vehicles. For instance, in November 2017, Tesla unveiled a prototype of Semi-Truck, which will go for full-fledged production by 2019. The semi-trucks can travel approximately 600 miles of range.

Recent Developments in High Voltage Battery Market

  • In May 2018, Proterra introduced new high-power charging options to achieve 100% electric bus fleet. At the American Public Transportation Association’s (APTA) Bus & Paratransit Conference, Proterra introduced new systems for reliable, smarter charging that is flexible, scalable, and powerful.
  • In November 2017, Tesla unveiled a prototype of Semi-Truck. The tractor can be linked up with any trailer, no brand-specific trailer is necessary. Semi-Truck can travel approximately 600 miles of range having a battery capacity of 800–1,000 kWh. The semi-trailer will go on full-fledged production by 2019.
  • In July 2016, Tesla opened its Gigafactory in Nevada, US. It is one of the biggest battery manufacturing plants for EV batteries, in terms of capacity. Tesla built it keeping in mind the future demand for EVs.
  • In October 2017, LG Chem, a leading manufacturer of advanced batteries based in Korea, announced the construction of an Electric Vehicle (EV) battery plant in Wroclaw, Poland. LG Chem will invest approximately USD 340 million in the plant by the end of 2018 to produce lithium-ion batteries. The company plans to produce 100,000 EV batteries in Poland annually.
