Consumption Analysis of Hybrid Electric Vehicles from 2016-2020 Vs Market Outlook for 2021 to 2031

As per Fact.MR – market research and competitive intelligence provider, from 2016 to 2020, the global hybrid electric vehicles market expanded at a CAGR worth 9% to reach a high valuation.

Hybrid electric vehicles come with a variety of benefits like reduced operational and maintenance costs and less pollution. With technological breakthroughs, the portfolio for electric vehicles is ever-expanding with many consumers in different regions preferring to go in for fully hybrid or mild hybrid vehicles.

Thus, considering these factors, the market for hybrid electric vehicles is projected to witness immense growth, registering nearly 14% CAGR through the 2021-2031 assessment period.

How are Power-Split and Gasoline Powered Hybrid Electric Vehicles Acquiring Traction?

Amongst all hybrid vehicle architectures, the power-split hybrid electric vehicles (PS-HEVs) have been proven to be the most efficient and are projected to hold a majority of the global hybrid vehicles market revenue share. 

Gasoline hybrid vehicles are favored over diesel hybrid vehicles due to improved performance, high fuel efficiency, and low tailpipe emissions. A vehicle uses only a small fraction of the energy available in gasoline to operate. 

Gasoline is the dominant transportation fuel in the United States. On an energy content basis, finished motor gasoline accounted for 62% of total U.S. transportation energy use in 2020, while distillate fuels, mostly diesel, accounted for 24%, and jet fuel accounted for 10%.

How are the Algorithmic Trends Stepping up Fuel Efficiency in Hybrid Electric Vehicles?

Newer and smarter algorithms are all set to revolutionize the fuel efficiency of hybrid electric vehicles. Owing to these trends, hybrid electric vehicles will capture a large market share of around US$ 29 Bn in the year 2021.

Hybrid electric vehicles are largely dependent on an energy management system that helps them to maintain an equilibrium between the electric motor and the internal combustion engine. Many new universities are now pioneering algorithms to help achieve this objective. 

Technical teams at several universities are developing highly nuanced algorithms that can calculate the energy consumption of a hybrid vehicle in a very optimal manner.

For instance, a team at the Technical University of Dresden developed a new algorithm that could calculate optimal energy use up to one hundred thousand times faster than systems in use today. According to researchers, this method could increase fuel efficiency by as much as 50%.

This would help to enhance fuel efficiency by at least 50% thus bolstering the demand for hybrid electric vehicles during the forecast period. Since these algorithms have been found to be highly complex, future research will focus on reducing the computational effort of these algorithms. This will improve drivability.

How are Refillable Batteries Generating Opportunities for HEV Sales?

Hybrid electric vehicles induce considerable anxiety amongst motorists due to the limited availability of charging stations and range limitations. This can now be offset with scientists working on refillable or flow batteries that can be refueled in minutes at any gas station.

In April 2021, BYD announced the launch of 4 new electric vehicles equipped with an ultra-safe battery technology developed by the company itself. Pure electric vehicles come with blade batteries. The brand has always ensured the safety offered by its batteries by conducting various safety standard tests and thereafter installing them in their vehicles.

What Potential Do the Innovative Technology Fluids Hold?

Key market players are rushing to reach the finish line by innovating a broad line of fluids and lubricants for the electric and hybrid-electric fleet of cars.

For instance, Total is massively consolidating its position by introducing a range of fluids that are specially designed for electric and hybrid vehicles. Total’s research and development teams are all geared up to meet the cooling and lubrication needs of these modern and differently-abled engines.

This is done to ensure that they maintain their peak condition throughout the engine’s lifecycle. Their new product line consists of an eclectic mix such as Total Quartz EV fluid and Total Rubia EV fluid for a wide range of hybrid and electric vehicles.

These dynamic fluids help to fulfill myriad applications such as boosting dielectric properties of the engine, compatibility with new electric components, lubrication for transmission, and a solution for temperature constraints.

In addition to this, in July 2021, TotalEnergies and Technip Energies signed a Technical Cooperation Agreement to jointly develop low-carbon solutions for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) production and offshore facilities to accelerate the energy transition.
