Increase in government initiatives for the promotion of e-mobility

Governments across the globe are pressuring automakers to cut CO2 emissions from burning diesel fuel, address greenhouse gas emissions, and invest in developing electric vans. The government has provided incentives in programs and schemes for the manufacture of electric battery vehicles, which is expected to drive the growth of the market.

In addition, globally, governments of developing and developed countries support electric vehicle purchases in the form of tax credits and incentives. In addition, some national governments have exempted electric vehicles from highway tolls. For instance, to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles, the Indian government plans to reduce the Goods and Services Tax (GST) on electric vehicles from 12% to 5%. Also, the governor of California issued an Executive Order requiring that by 2035 all-new car and passenger light truck sales be zero-emission vehicles. New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts are considering similar bans on internal combustion engines. In addition, due to stringent emission standards, countries are planning a complete switch from conventional vans to electric vans. For instance, in November 2020, the UK government announced that all new petrol and diesel cars and vans will be phased out by 2030 and all the government car and van fleet to be 100% zero emission vehicle by 2027. Such initiatives are expected to drive the growth of the global electric van market.

Reduction in cost of electric vehicle batteries

Technological advancements and production of electric vehicle batteries on a mass scale has led to reduction in the cost of electric vehicle batteries over the past decade. This has led to reduction in the cost of electric vans as batteries cost almost 30% to 40% of the total cost of electric vans. For Instance, in 2010, the price of an electric vehicle battery was around $1,100 per kWh. However, according to Bloomberg, by 2020, electric vehicle battery price fell to around $137 per kWh while the price is as low as $100 per kWh in China. This is attributed to technological advancements in battery technologies along with reducing manufacturing costs of these batteries, reduced cathode material prices, and greater volumes of production. The prices of electric vehicle batteries are expected to fall to around $40-60 per kWh by 2030, which is expected to greatly reduce price of electric vans making them priced similar to conventional gasoline-powered vans. Combined with the growing demand for low-pollution transport, this will lead to widespread use of electric vans in the near future.

In 2020, Tesla, the world’s leading electric vehicle manufacturers, has already announced plans to significantly reduce the price of electric vehicle batteries over the next few years. Other leading electric vehicle battery manufacturers such as Samsung SDI, Panasonic, LG Chem, SK Innovative, and CATL have been working with leading electric vehicle manufacturers for achieving this goal over the next four to five years. Thus, a reduction in battery costs is expected to boost the growth of the electric van market.

Increase in demand for emission-free and high-performance electric vans

As gasoline is a fossil fuel, it is not a renewable energy source and is expected to run out in the future. Developing and using alternative fuel sources is critical to supporting sustainable development. Electric vans are used, which do not require gasoline and are more economical than conventional vans. Electric vans convert more than 50% of the electrical energy from the grid into electricity at their wheels, while gas-powered vans can only convert about 17-21% of the energy stored in gasoline. In recent years, the demand for emission-free electric vans has increased due to rising gasoline and diesel oil prices. This is due to the depletion of fossil fuel reserves and the increasing propensity of companies to seek maximum profit from these oil reserves. These factors, therefore, lead to the need for advanced fuel-saving technologies, leading to increased demand for electric vans.

In addition, as per the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), the transport sector contributes around one-quarter of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Therefore, several governments across the globe have introduced initiative to make their urban transport system more sustainable with the use of electric vans. The introduction of electric vans is expected to change the mass transit across the globe in upcoming years. Thus, increase in demand for emission-free and high-performance electric vans is driving the growth of market during the forecast timeframe.
