Key Market Trends

In-Wheel Motors are Expected to Grow in the Market.

Leading automotive OEMs and electric motor manufacturers are developing more efficient and powerful motors for future electric vehicles. Recently, few startups and established players have been focusing on and developing in-wheel motors. In conventional electric vehicles, the gasoline engine is substituted with an electric motor along with other electronics. On the other hand, the in-wheel motor is installed right into each of the wheels to power the wheels directly. In-wheel motors are employed through separate motors in the separate wheel so that each of the four wheels can be operated independently, which is not possible in conventional powertrain design.

For instance, in 2019, Protean develops an electric drive corner module Protean360+, which has an in-wheel motor, inverter, liquid cooling circuit, brake disc and caliper, and steering and suspension system.

Similarly, BYD has developed an in-house design for its electric buses, which have two front motors in hubs.

Passenger cars Captures Major Share in Market

Passenger cars capture dominant share in the electric motor market for electric vehicles, as OEMs continue to plan to invest hugely in research and development for the development of the next-gen electric vehicle.

The European automotive industry offers a broad portfolio of technologies for electrified vehicles and adopting the majority of advanced technologies in the vehicle systems. Daimler, Volkswagen Group, ZF Friedrichshafen and Robert Bosch are the major players in the growing trend of vehicle electrification solutions, continues to expand to get ahead in the fastest-growing electric vehicle market in Europe.

For instance, in February 2020, Magna demonstrates its e4 technology, which is equipped with a dual-motor all-wheel-drive system, gearbox, inverter, and its software.

Additionally, the Volkswagen Group is investing actively in electric vehicles. The group plans to invest around EUR 60 billion on the development, including areas of hybridization, electric mobility, and digitalization, between 2020 and 2024.
