The global electric vehicle component market generated revenue of $22.2 billion in 2018, and it is expected be valued at $157.4 billion by 2025, exhibiting a CAGR of 29.4% between 2019 and 2025. Based on component, the battery pack contributed the highest revenue in 2018.
The battery pack is the most important component in an electric vehicle and is responsible for the largest contribution among all the components to the vehicle cost. As a result of this, battery packs are responsible for generating the highest revenue in the electric vehicle component market.
Shift Toward Lithium–Nickel–Manganese–Cobalt (NMC) Oxide Batteries from Lithium–Iron Phosphate (LFP) Batteries is a Major Trend in the Market
A major trend being witnessed in the electric vehicle component market is the shift of electric vehicle manufacturers from lithium–iron phosphate (LFP) batteries toward lithium–nickel–manganese–cobalt (NMC) oxide batteries. In the past, most of the manufacturers, especially the Chinese players, used LFP batteries in their electric vehicles. For instance, BYD Co. Ltd., a major electric vehicle manufacturer, still uses LFP batteries in its vehicles. LFP batteries come with higher safety features and a longer life cycle, which made them a favorable option. However, in the recent years, the usage of NMC batteries in electric vehicles has witnessed a drastic climb. The shift toward NMC batteries from LFP batteries is mostly because the former batteries offer a greater energy density, which enables a longer vehicle range. Moreover, these batteries are much lighter than LFP batteries as well as consume lesser space in the vehicle. Thus, with the growing demand for longer-range and lighter electric vehicles, manufacturers are shifting from LFP batteries to NMC batteries.
Increasing Adoption of Electric Vehicles is Driving the Growth of the Market
The growing adoption of electric vehicles across the world is contributing in the growth of the electric vehicle component market. In 2018, the total electric car fleet across the world surpassed 5.1 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 electric vehicle production and sales, the demand for their components is also forecast to increase. The growth in electric vehicle adoption is itself propelled by two major factors, namely the rising concern toward the environment and government support in different countries.

Geographical Analysis of Electric Vehicle Component Market
APAC is the largest electric vehicle component market, owing to the increasing production and sale of electric vehicles in this region. The government of different countries in the region are actively taking initiatives to propel the adoption of electric vehicles, which is further contributing to the growth of the components’ market. For instance, the government of China has been running different subsidy schemes for electric vehicles from 2017 onward, due to which the country recorded a rise in the adoption of electric vehicles by over 60% from 2017 to 2018. Also, in 2017, Government of India outlined a vision that aims to have an electric vehicle fleet by 2030. Further, the National Electric Mobility Mission Plan 2020 was launched in 2013 to promote electric and hybrid vehicles in India. As different components make up an electric vehicle, the increasing adoption of electric vehicles in several countries is fueling the demand for the components in the APAC region.
Competitive Landscape of Electric Vehicle Component Market
Most of the players in the electric vehicle component market are based in the APAC region, especially China, Japan, and South Korea. This is mainly because of the heavy production of electric vehicles in this region, presence of government incentives and subsidies, as well as a rapidly growing consumer base in the form of electric vehicle manufacturers.
