"Carbon Footprint Regulations as well as Advanced Batteries & Motors to Amplify Electric Two-wheelers Demand"

The global electric two-wheelers market was valued at US$ 12.72 Bn in 2018 and expected to witness a notable growth, expanding at CAGR of 8.17% during the forecast period from 2019 to 2027. Technological advancements in automotive field coupled with need for carbon emission control have paved the way for electric vehicles thereby stimulating the demand for electric two-wheelers. Electric two-wheelers accounted for major share in overall electric vehicles market worldwide in 2018. Rise in use of Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries by electric two-wheeler manufacturers owing to their low self-discharge, low maintenance, lightweight and fast charging capability is the key factor driving the market growth. Furthermore, tax imposition on fuel two-wheelers, subsidies offered on electric two-wheelers and strict emission norms being framed by various national governments are major factors propelling regional market growth. Electric two-wheelers offer key benefits such as low fuel cost, low maintenance cost and low operating noise among others. Such advantages further accelerate market growth and revenue generation. 

Continuous innovations in battery industry to develop advanced battery systems, which are more compact, support quick charging and have more cycleability is projected to drive electric two-wheelers market during forecast period. For instance, engineers at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore announced to develop new Li-ion battery that takes 5 minutes for complete charging along with 10,000 charge cycles and can successfully last for approximately 1.5 Mn KMs of vehicle running. Similarly, organizations are aiming to develop better electric motors that efficiently work under higher loads and conserve battery power at the same time. For instance, Siemens announced a new electric motor with integrated inverter in motor housing. This arrangement converts DC output of battery to AC before supplying it to the motor for optimum usage. Currently under development stage, such innovations can turn the tables for electric two-wheelers market growth.
