Market Lifecycle Stage
Battery protection and monitoring are a necessity with Li-ion battery packs to protect it from overvoltage and load impact during crash/accidents.To avoid damages by side-impact and pole impact load cases, the EVs are equipped with battery housing systems.
The battery enclosure of an EV is responsible for providing crash-safe battery protection against electric shock and fire dangers. The growth of the global electric vehicle battery housing market is majorly attributed to the growing inclination toward vehicle weight reduction by using lightweight materials.
Increasing EV range and battery capacity coupled with demand for robust vehicle design is benefitting the market growth. Additionally, electric vehicle battery housing players have tended toward new product launches to expand their innovative capabilities.
Furthermore, favorable government policies supporting the adoption of electric vehicles across the globe, advancements in housing material, and increase in competition in the electric vehicle are projected to offer new avenues for the electric vehicle battery housing market.There are some challenges in the market, such as solid-state batteries and challenges associated with lack of standardization of electric vehicle battery.
The ongoing vital developments in the market are expected to overcome them in the forecast period.
Impact of Electric Vehicle Battery Housing Market
• With the rapidly evolving electric vehicle market, the battery housing used in electric vehicles are responsible for providing crash-safe battery protection against electric shock and fire dangers.
• The development of innovative materials and material compositions for battery housing has greatly enhanced the design and structure of EV battery packs. Major battery housing producers such as Novelis Inc., Magna International, Nemak etc. are working on the development of new products that meet the current and future battery housing requirements of electric vehicle battery producers.
• EV manufacturers are developing battery housing systems that can provide high yield strength, high fatigue strength, sealing, heat management, anti-vibration, and corrosion protection to their battery packs.
Impact of COVID-19
The impact of COVID-19 on the electric vehicle Battery housing industry has been moderately affected as compared to the impact on the general automotive industry. Furthermore, due to variables like the increasing demand and annual sales of electric cars, there is a considerable increase in the need for electric vehicle battery and components.
Additionally, Companies working on steel and aluminum battery enclosures faced a surge in metal prices due to a sudden disruption in the supply chain.COVID-19 has had an aggressive impact on battery manufacturers, as it consumes lithium, nickel, and cobalt in precursor production.
As a result, the prices for raw materials in the manufacture of batteries and housing have risen exponentially.
Segmentation 1: by Cell Format
• Pouch Cell
• Cylindrical Cell
• Prismatic Cell
Cylindrical cell-based electric vehicle battery housing has dominated the market with a 63.2% value share in 2021. The adoption of this cell format by various two and three-wheeler OEMs have supported the growth of this category. The category is expected to remain the largest category during the forecast period owing to added benefits it provides over other cell formats and higher adoption in two and three wheelers.
Segmentation 2: by Vehicle Type
• Passenger Vehicles
• Commercial Vehicles
• Off-Road Vehicles
Based on vehicle type, passenger vehicles accounted for the largest share of 34.1% in the global electric vehicle battery housing market in 2021. Factors such as growing demand for zero efficient vehicles, government initiatives, and improved charging infrastructure are responsible for the growth of passenger vehicles and thus leading to the growth of the battery enclosure market for the same.
Segmentation 3: by Material
• Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastic
• Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic
Based on material, aluminum accounted for the largest share of 67.0% in the global electric vehicle battery housing market in 2021, and CFRP is expected to witness growth at a CAGR of 14.40% between 2022 and 2031. Aluminum seems to have the upper hand over other materials, mostly because of its light weight, favorable technical characteristics, and competitive cost. Furthermore, there has been a substantial trend of major OEMs like as Nissan, VW, and Tesla promoting the move from steel to aluminum for battery enclosures. Thus, massive support from supply-side players is benefiting the aluminum-based Electric vehicle battery housing systems.
Segmentation 4: by Battery Chemistry
• Lead Acid
Based on battery chemistry, lithium ion accounted for the largest share of 59.7% in the global electric vehicle battery housing market in 2021 and is expected to witness growth at a CAGR of 13.10% between 2022 and 2031. Lithium-ion seems to have the upper hand over other materials, mostly because of their high energy per unit mass relative to other electrical energy storage systems. They also have a high power-to-weight ratio, high energy efficiency, good high-temperature performance, and low self-discharge. Most of today’s all-electric vehicles and PHEVs use lithium-ion batteries, though the exact chemistry often varies from that of consumer electronics batteries.
Segmentation 5: by Region
• North America – U.S., Canada, and Mexico
• Europe – Germany, France, and Rest-of-Europe
• Asia-Pacific and Japan – Japan, South Korea, and Rest-of-Asia-Pacific and Japan
The China region holds a significant market share among different regions such as North America and Europe. However, Asia-Pacific and Japan is expected to be the fastest-growing region, growing at a CAGR of over 13.76% during the forecast period. Government regulations across key countries in the region, technological advancements, extensive investments for dedicated R&D facilities, and the presence of major EV manufacturing companies are some of the major drivers that are propelling the growth of the market in the region.
