Global COVID Impact on Electric Vehicle Market

An electric vehicle (EV) runs on electricity contrasting its counterpart, which functions on fuel. As opposed to the internal combustion engine, these vehicles operate on an electric motor that involves a continuous supply of energy from batteries. Electric vehicles are mainly intended to replace typical ways of travel as they cause environmental pollution. The vehicles are powered either through a collector system with the help of electricity from charging stations or can be charged by self-charging devices like turbochargers and regenerative braking systems. However, the COVID-19 outbreak poses a great challenge to the global automobile industry as there is a lockdown in several countries, due to which production of electric vehicles is restricted. Also, the operations of some vital companies are being affected by the COVID-19 pandemics such as Nissan Motor Co., BMW AG, Daimler AG, Tesla, Inc, and Kia Motors Corp. These companies have stopped their production facilities and moved their interest towards the production of personal protective equipment, which has resulted in the changing dynamic of these market spaces. Whereas, in the future, the government stimulus packages could help the EV market to come out through an economic crisis by COVID-19 by investing heavy amounts in EV charging infrastructure. Thus, this factor is expected to drive market growth in the forthcoming years. Further, the increasing adoption of electric vehicles and growing concerns over environmental pollution are some other factors responsible for the high CAGR of the market over the forecast period. According to the Edison Electric Institute, it is estimated that global electric vehicle sales totaled about 312,000 in Q1 2018, an increase of 58% compared to Q1 2017. However, the high manufacturing cost is one of the major factors constraining the market growth over the forecast period of 2020-2026.

Global COVID Impact on Electric Vehicle Market is valued approximately at USD 162 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 22.6% over the forecast period 2020-2026.
