Rising adoption of sustainable commute systems coupled with higher fuel prices will lead to the market growth.
Electric utility vehicles are designed with a combination of low-emission technology and high work capacity, and they are an alternative to traditional internal-engine utility vehicles. In addition, with the rapid establishment of charging stations across the world, the demand for electric utility and shuttle carts is expected to increase faster than other electric utility vehicles. In the past few years, industrial automotive such as trucks, buses, or vehicles used in the agricultural sector have been electrified, resulting in them being more environmentally friendly and sustainable. Electric utility vehicles drastically reduce carbon emissions, which helps to reduce greenhouse gas emission levels and reduce environmental issues. Regulatory bodies and various companies across the world are investing heavily in the development of robust electric vehicle charging infrastructure to drive electric vehicle adoption in the coming years. Moreover, factors such as growing demand for low emission commuting and governments supporting long range, zero emission vehicles through subsidies and tax rebates have compelled the manufacturers to provide electric vehicles around the world. For instance, the European Union has created a regulation to reduce the CO2 emissions of light and medium industrial by 15% by 2025. This has led to an increase in the demand for electric vehicles in the market.
The growth of the global electric utility vehicle market is driven by the introduction of new and improved electric utility vehicles, stringent government rules and regulations regarding rising fuel costs, and vehicle emissions. A number of manufacturers are developing and launching new electric utility vehicles with the aim of reducing their carbon footprint. For instance, in May 2022, Alpha Motor Corporation unveiled an all-electric utility vehicle, namely the REX. The REX is built on the same platform that powers the WOLF Truck series. The REX is expected to feature a four-wheel drive system and independent suspension to handle rough terrain. It also has a feature, an 85kWh lithium-ion battery with a range of 275 miles. Governments provide subsidies either through direct investment in private charging stations in homes and workplaces or in public charging stations. Moreover, these subsidies promote production of electric vehicle as well, which is paving the way for electric utility vehicle market to grow further.
The use of battery swapping in electric vehicles creates a great platform for the electric utility vehicle market to continue to grow at a significant pace. Changing batteries at charging stations for electric vehicles is a new trend that will save electric vehicle users time charging their batteries. Battery exchange stations are expected to attract more electric utility vehicle customers as they will not have to wait longer for charging. NIO has installed more than 600 battery exchange stations by July 2021 and plans to install around 4,000 more in China by 2025. This created a new opportunity for battery as a service in electric vehicle charging. Moreover, with increased use of IoT, growing demand for connected vehicles, it is also likely to create a great opportunity for the market for electric utility vehicles market to grow further.
The high production cost of electric vehicles is hindering the growth of the electric utility vehicle market. The market for electric vehicles is better compared to traditional fuel, but the cost is higher than gasoline-powered vehicles. These vehicles have not yet achieved economies of scale because they are not produced on a mass scale. Additionally, the need for higher capacity batteries for long-haul trucks and the lack of robust electric battery charging infrastructure in developing and underdeveloped countries are the key factors expected to restrain the market’s growth to a great extent over the forecast period.
The electric utility vehicle market is growing at a fast pace, but still the major reason that is hampering the market’s growth is technological advancement, such as increased need to produce batteries for electric vehicles on a mass scale in large volumes. Moreover, certain other factors such as chip shortage, reliance of rare earth materials, acceptance of electric vehicle by customers, etc. create a great challenge for the electric utility vehicle market to grow further.
