Increasing Electric Vehicle Sales Likely to Impact Market

The market for electric vehicles is increasing year on year, impacting the growth of the automotive industry. The annual sales of plug-in electric cars crossed the 400 thousand mark in 2019, gathering more than 1% of the United States' overall vehicle sales share. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), the number of electric vehicles (EVs) is likely to grow up to 125 million in 2030 from just 3.1 million in 2017. In addition, the United States is the largest manufacturer of plug-in hybrid vehicles in the North American region. The country is also the largest market for these vehicles, with manufacturers, such as Cadillac, GMC, Tesla, and Chrysler, leading the market.

With the automobile industry’s continuous shift towards e-mobility, the sale of plug-in electric vehicles has been increasing in the United States for the past few years. While convention powertrain vehicles have more than 2,000 components within them, electric vehicles have far less. For instance, Tesla revealed that in its drivetrain, there are only 17 moving parts, including two in the motor, and since the drivetrain is the heart of any electric vehicle, it is expected that automotive component manufacturers will first start off with their associated part manufacturing. Also, it is estimated that out of the 590,000 U.S. employees engaged in auto parts manufacturing, nearly 150,000 are into component manufacturing for Internal Combustion Engines (ICE).

This number is expected to change over the forecast period as companies will dedicate some of them towards EV parts and component production. Power Inverters, DC-DC Converters, Battery & related parts, Motor Control Unit (MCU) are some of the other important parts that will also be manufactured by companies over time to stay relevant in the market. The adoption of EV-related spare parts will be slow in the after-market space initially, but with the industry seeing a paradigm shift, the rate is expected to grow considerably after some years.
