The global electric vehicles market reached a volume of 2.45 Million Units in 2020 . An electrical vehicle (EV) is a self-propelling automobile that is used for transporting passengers and goods. It can be charged by self-charging devices, including turbochargers and regenerative braking systems that can convert the kinetic energy into electrical energy or can be powered by a large traction battery pack present at charging stations. Battery-electric vehicles (BEVs), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) are the most common types of EVs available in the market. In comparison to the traditionally used automobiles, EVs do not emit tailpipe emissions, reduce the dependency on oil and are more economical to operate. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global electric vehicles market to grow at a CAGR of around 47% during the forecast period (2021-2026).

The increasing demand for fuel-efficient automobiles across the globe is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, growing concerns regarding the detrimental environmental effects due to greenhouse gases (GHGs) emissions, along with the implementation of favorable government policies encouraging sustainable development, are also providing a boost to the market growth. For instance, various benefits, including tax exemptions, subsidies, low buying costs and free charging facilities, are some of the government privileges offered to those utilizing EVs, thus encouraging their overall adoption rates. Additionally, manufacturers are focusing on the development of advanced technologies to produce zero- and low-emission vehicles with improved fuel efficiency and soundless operations. Also, enhancements in the EV charging infrastructure are leading to more investments in utilities, charging hardware manufacturers and other power sector stakeholders. Other factors, including rapid urbanization, increasing disposable incomes and extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are projected to drive the market further.
