Amid the thriving demand for electric vehicles (EVs), a total of 24.7 million acoustic vehicle alerting systems (AVAS) were installed in EVs (which include two wheelers and passenger cars) in 2019. Furthermore, the global acoustic vehicle alerting system market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.9% in terms of volume during the forecast period (2020–2030). The stringent emission regulations around the globe coupled with increasing government support in terms of subsidies and grants, tax rebates, and other non-financial benefits for EVs adoption are driving the market.
In addition, the installation of AVASs has been made an integral part of all categories of EVs, concerning pedestrian safety, categorically more vulnerable section among them like blind people, people with partial vision, old-aged people, and children. The mandate has already come into force in some parts of the globe, with effect from model year 2019. These regulatory measures in various countries are driving the acoustic vehicle alerting system market during the forecast period.
Before the coronavirus outbreak, 2020 was expected a crucial year for EV manufacturers, with several industry players preparing new market offerings and planning to increase their capacities. However, the pandemic has changed market scenario for all the stakeholders in EV and acoustic vehicle alerting system market. The preventive measures taken by the government in various nations like complete lockdown and even curfew in hotspot areas have up to large extent reduced the supply and demand for EVs in general and automotive in particular. The global EV industry is highly dependent on imports, and the lockdown has slashed the imports of batteries, motors, and other electrical and electronic components.
Furthermore, the ripple effects were visible in the crude prices as well, which stooped historically low, for example, in negative. Since rising crude prices was the major driver for adoption of EVs, per economic parameters, this will be a big setback for the EV and acoustic vehicle alerting system market, because economy of scale would highly bend against their favor.
The government incentives for BEVs and regulations for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and aftermarket to install these systems in these vehicles in stipulated time are driving the growth of the market in BEV category. Furthermore, with the government support in the form of financial incentives for the purchase and development of these vehicles, and improvements in battery technology, BEVs is estimated to hold over 70% share in total plug-in EVs sales in 2030. The increased adoption of BEVs will help the category to hold the dominant position in the acoustic vehicle alerting system market during the forecast period.
The acoustic vehicle alerting systems market falling under the four-wheeler category is expected to register faster growth, both in terms of volume and value, during the forecast period. The major factor responsible for this growth is fast adoption of electric cars and light-duty trucks, due to the increase in innovation, reduction in prices, and availability of various models offered by car manufactures. In developed economies, including the U.S. and European nations, the acoustic vehicle alerting system market will be led by the four-wheeler category; whereas, in developing economies, such as China and India, it will be led by the two-wheeler category.
The OEM category, based on distribution channel, accounted the larger market size in 2019, due to the increased installation of acoustic vehicle alerting system components in EVs, as per the mandatory regulations by governments. However, the volume share of the category will fall as the market of EV will grow and the aftermarket category is expected to register faster growth, both in terms of volume and value. This can be majorly due to the natural wear and tear and end-of-life of acoustic vehicle alerting system components, and the government regulations in major EVs and acoustic vehicle alerting system market (e.g., the U.S.) mandating retrofitting of AVASs in old EVs by 2021.
The integrated category is expected to register faster growth, both in terms of volume and value, during the forecast period. This can be due to the fact that integrated AVASs are used majorly in four-wheelers, where they form parts of the vehicles. Moreover, during the same period, the sales and production of electric passenger cars and light-duty trucks will see significant growth, which, in turn, will support the growth of the acoustic vehicle alerting system market.
Globally, the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is expected to remain the leading region for the acoustic vehicle alerting system market throughout the forecast period, accounting for nearly 80% sales volume in 2030. This can be driven by growing demand for EVs in developing economies, including China and India. These economies are highly dependent on oil imports for their energy needs. Therefore, they see EVs as viable alternative of future mobility and energy security.
The dominant share of electric two-wheelers coupled with their increasing demand is driving the market in the APAC region. The region is hub to many global EV and components manufacturers, including AVAS. Moreover, China is the largest market for EVs in the world, which is driving the sales of acoustic vehicle alerting system components in the region. Also, as Chinese car manufacturers are focusing more on electric variants, the regional acoustic vehicle alerting system market is expected to witness significant growth.
The European acoustic vehicle alerting system market is in its nascent phase and is driven by government regulations that mandate the inclusion of acoustic vehicle alerting system components in electric and hybrid vehicles. The market in this region is projected to grow fastest during the forecast period. The European Union (EU) has established ambitious goals for phasing-out the internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and dependency on oil imports. Moreover, many countries have announced to ban the sales of ICE vehicles between 2030 and 2040 period.
With rapidly improving economics of EVs and a regulatory push across different European countries, it is estimated that by 2030, about 30% of all vehicles sold in Europe across different segments (passenger cars, vans, trucks, and buses) will be electric. Since the acoustic vehicle alerting systems market is directly proportional to the EVs market, as uptake of EVs increases, the European acoustic vehicle alerting system market provides ample opportunity for key players.
In recent years, the acoustic vehicle alerting system market is witnessing consolidation and joint ventures among major EVs and acoustic vehicle alerting system manufacturers. Companies are also collaborating and aiming at synergies to share technical knowledge with each other. These collaborations will lead to extensive research and development (R&D) of newer and efficient products, which, in turn, will boost the demand for AVASs.
High adoption of EVs across the world is the most important factor contributing to the growth of the acoustic vehicle alerting system market. In 2019, the total electric car fleet surpassed 7.1 million, increasing by over 2 million from the previous year, and it is expected that by 2030, the total fleet size will exceed 130 million. Thus, with such massive growth expected for EV sales, the demand for their components, such as AVASs, is also expected to increase. The rise in EVs adoption is itself propelled by two major factors, namely, the increasing concerns toward the environment and government support for the adoption of EVs in different countries.
Another important factor propelling the growth of the acoustic vehicle alerting system market is the reduction in the cost of different components used in AVAS, resulting in economies of scale. For instance, it is expected that the cost of battery packs, speakers, copper coils, and amplifiers would decline by over 30% by 2025 from that was in 2019. Further, the cost of permanent magnet, which is a ceramic ferrite material, consisting of iron oxide, strontium, and a ceramic binder, is expected to reduce by around 24% by 2025 from that was in 2019. Thus, with falling component price, the cost of AVAS would also decrease and thereby will offer benefits to the large-scale production of the products in the market.
