Market Segments analysis:

Vehicle Type analysis:

The passenger vehicle segment accounted for the largest share of around 77.2% in 2020 and is anticipated to maintain its dominance over the forecast period as well. The shortage of computer chips in the automotive industry has affected production volumes and hindered market growth. Moreover, diesel, oil, and gasoline-based passenger vehicle markets are witnessing a shift toward electric passenger vehicles owing to increasing investments by governments in EV infrastructure and tax benefits offered to consumers. For instance, in the U.S., under the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP), eligible candidates are provided a tax rebate from the State of California from April 23, 2021, onwards.

Propulsion Type analysis:

The Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) segment accounted for the largest share of around 90.2% of the overall market in 2020. The ICE segment consists of gasoline, diesel, and natural gas vehicles. Currently, gasoline engines are adopted widely and are projected to be replaced by diesel engines owing to the increasing difference between diesel and gasoline prices. However, the price difference between ICEs and EVs and improper charging infrastructure are the major factors that benefit the adoption of ICE vehicles. Due to these factors, component manufacturers are adopting hybrid powertrains to reduce fuel usage in vehicles.

Regional Insights

The Asia Pacific regional market accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 60.4% in 2020. It is anticipated to continue leading with a CAGR exceeding 12.4% over the forecast period.
