EV Battery Revenue Analysis 2016-2020 Vs Future Outlook 2021-2031
From 2016 to 2020, global sales of electric vehicle batteries surged at above 12% CAGR, with sales being valued at US$ 91 Bn by the end of the said historical period. Sales have been influenced by a significant increase in demand for zero-emission vehicles as a result of rising fuel prices, depletion of fossil fuel reserves, and tightening pollution rules.
As producers shift their focus towards more cutting-edge technologies and forming strategic collaborations with automotive OEMs, the electric vehicle battery market will have brighter prospects. Mounting environmental concerns such as global warming and rising pollution levels have prompted manufacturers to propose alternative energy sources to power vehicles.
Based on the aforementioned prevailing trends, Fact.MR projects the demand for electric vehicle batteries to register an astronomical surge, registering a whopping CAGR exceeding 25% from 2021 to 2031.
How are new Plug-in EV Models Driving Market Demand?
Across the globe, the electric car market is expanding at a breakneck pace. As a result of the increased demand for EVs, major vehicle manufacturers are entering the market, which is ultimately expected to stimulate demand for EV batteries in the long-run.
Prominent manufacturers, including Toyota, Tata Motors, Mercedes-Benz, and Hyundai, are developing electric vehicle models to strengthen their positions in the industry. Electric car development is projected to accelerate shortly, thanks to major manufacturers' interest in the field.
Recently, in April 2021, Toyota Motor Corporation announced the release of its new battery electric vehicle (BEV) series- Toyota bZ.

How are Surging E-mobility Trends Expected to Widen EV Battery Sales?
With increased sales of electric vehicles, the e-mobility trend is likely to gain traction over the projection period. The continuing implementation of integrated charging stations, as well as the construction of green power-generation capabilities, would add to the market's growth potential.
Strategic alliances between e-mobility providers, battery makers, and energy suppliers are another trend that is predicted to promote sales of electric vehicle batteries. At the same time, automakers are pushing technology advancements to ensure that their electric vehicles have robust propulsion.
Why are Concerns over Battery Safety a Concern?
Most electric vehicle batteries are deemed safe since they are put through a series of testing before being used. However, several occurrences, such as the recall of 68,000 Chevy EV Bolts following five battery-related fires, have raised concerns about the safety of these batteries.
Electric vehicle batteries are made up of combustible components like lithium, manganese, and polymers. When lithium is exposed to water, it becomes extremely reactive. As a result, there are worries about these batteries' performance and safety in extremely dry or moist settings, thus limiting future sales.

What Supports Increasing EV battery Sales in Europe?
In 2021, Europe is expected to account for over 30% of the global EV market by volume, registering a staggering CAGR over 35%. Because electric vehicles are currently relatively expensive, the growth of the EV battery business in the region is heavily reliant on government incentives and funds.
Germany is anticipated to remain at the forefront of the European EV battery industry. The presence of OEMs such as the VDL Groep (Netherlands) and AB Volvo (Sweden) in the region provides the potential for the EV battery market to flourish.
What are the Factors Driving Revenue Generation across Asia?
Asia will likely hold the greatest market share- with China capturing around 28.3% of the total revenue. In response to the growing preference for electric vehicles, Asian countries, particularly China, India, and South Korea, have seen an increase in electric vehicle battery demand in recent years.
Because of reduced labor costs and low maintenance expenses, China has a high concentration of electric and conventional vehicle battery manufacturers. Besides China, India is likely to emerge as a major powerhouse, expanding at a whopping 15% CAGR through 2031- attributed to rising government incentives to promote EV production.
How Opportunistic are Growth Prospects in the U.S.?
The U.S has established a dominant position in the electric car battery landscape. Continuing development of electric vehicles is intensifying competition among industry participants, translating into a flurry of product launches. Fact.MR expects the market to surge at around 25% CAGR.
Because of the expanding sales of electric automobiles in these locations, North America has seen an increase in electric vehicle battery demand. Tesla Motor Inc., Ford Motor Company, and Bayerische Motoren Werke AG are among the most well-known electric vehicle manufacturers in the U.S
Why are Passenger Cars Stimulating Heightened Demand?
According to Fact.MR’s analysis, EV batteries for passenger cars are expected to register maximum sales, accounting for more than 50% revenue in forthcoming years. This majorly due to widening preference for EVs globally.
Adoption rates are especially high across Asia- with China emerging at the forefront. The region alone considered using 61% of all cobalt used globally in manufacturing EV batteries in 2019, according to the USGS National Minerals Information Center.
How are Stored Electricity Electric Vehicle Batteries Becoming Popular?
Demand for stored electricity based EV batteries are expected to gain significant traction, attributed to the fact that electric vehicles for traveling larger distances are acquiring popularity. A CAGR above 10% is projected for this segment.
Similar to common rechargeable batteries, very large batteries can store electricity until it is needed. These systems can use lithium ion, lead acid, lithium iron or other battery technologies. Furthermore, large capacity storage batteries increase durability, as opposed to those requiring constant recharging.
