Electric Vehicle Battery Thermal Management System Market by Technology

Increase in long range and fast charging technology in electric vehicles

As EVs grow in popularity, new car buyers are skeptical about sufficient range provided by electric vehicles for normal driving needs. This range anxiety has encouraged automobile manufacturers to produce EV with longer range. Increasing the size of the battery pack is the simplest way to improve EV range. For instance, on April 20, 2022, Tata Motors launched a long-range Nexon EV with a larger 40kWh battery pack and a range of 400km. Electric vehicles equipped with a larger battery pack generate enormous amounts of heat; hence battery heat management becomes necessary to maintain adequate temperature range for effective functioning of vehicle. The battery temperature has a strong effect on the charging and discharging rate of the battery, which further affects the range of the vehicle, which develops the need for suitable battery heat management system. According to a report published by International Energy Agency (IEA) in 2021, the average driving range of electric vehicles has been steadily growing. The weighted average range of the new battery-powered electric vehicle in 2020 was about 350km (km), an increase from 200km in 2015. Thus, the increasing production of long range vehicles is expected to require a dedicated battery thermal management system to enhance safety and efficiency of electric vehicles, which promotes the growth of the battery thermal management system market. Moreover, fast-charging technology is rapidly expanding and evolving as it allows vehicles to be charged within a short period of time. For instance, in January 2022, Voltempo, a leading developer of new electric vehicle (EV) technologies, introduced Hyper Charging, the world's fastest charging system. Also, companies such as Tesla and EVgo are already building fast-charging infrastructure across North America. For instance, in February 2021, EVgo, the U.S.'s largest public fast charging network for electric vehicles (EVs) expanded its fast charging network for Tesla drivers to charge at more EVgo stations across the country. Moreover, in April 2022, Hyundai a South Korean global automotive manufacturing company, announced a collaboration with retail giant, Lotte Group and KB Asset Management to expand Korea's ultra-fast charging infrastructure. In addition, governments of different countries have taken initiatives to promote the deployment of fast charging stations. For instance, in 2019, the government of India decided to change the guidelines for charging stations for electric vehicles to give developers the freedom to choose the charging infrastructure technology. Government decided to install both CHAdeMO and Combined Charging System (CCS) fast charging technologies, in addition to the existing Bharat standard at public electric vehicle charging stations. The uniformity of the temperature distribution of the battery module affects the inconsistency between the battery cells, resulting in non-uniform aging rate and shortened battery module life. The fast charging technology is responsible for large heat generation and degradation of the battery as lithium-ion batteries generate enormous heat at high current charge rates. Thus, a battery thermal management system is required to extract heat efficiently and maintain uniform temperature distribution in the battery pack. Therefore, the growing trend of long range and fast charging technology propel growth of the electric vehicle battery thermal management system market.

Design challenges and complexities in components used for battery thermal management system

The design of battery thermal management system is complex. Increasing power requirements without compromising system performance and reliability is a major issue in thermal component design. Pipe connections are at risk of leaks as the battery gets older in liquid cooling battery thermal management system. The connections, battery modules pump, and valves of the system must all remain intact. Corrosion can occur in liquid cooling systems where cold plates can corrode as the liquid glycol ages. Therefore, the coolant is expected to be replaced as part of vehicle maintenance. Maintenance battery thermal management system (BTMS) is difficult due to high repair costs and bulky and cumbersome cables. Such complicated configuration and maintenance hinder the growth of the EV battery thermal management system market. There are also challenges posed during manufacturing of the thermal components of battery thermal management system, which comprises of selection of coolant, design of optimal flow channels, and complexity of the model and flow. Innovative yet fully functional battery thermal management system design requires rigorous monitoring, quality testing, and continuous improvement of the entire process. Also, all current quality and safety (Q & S) standards need to be taken into account during the design of battery thermal management system. Rapid temperature rises due to high power can be dangerous as they can cause internal short circuits, physical damage, fires or explosions, which is also called thermal runway. Thus, the system must be designed to withstand wide temperature ranges at all times. For instance, in August 2021, Tesla car ignited overnight while charging, igniting another Tesla (second Model S) next door, causing a major house fire. Battery of the electric vehicles is required to function properly in hot and humid conditions that prevail across India. Also, the effects of cold weather dramatically reduce battery life and increase internal impedance. The cold climate reduces range of electric vehicles by slowing down the chemical reaction in battery cells. Therefore, such design challenges and complexities associated with components of the battery thermal management system hinder the growth of the EV BTMS market.

Increase in technological innovations in lithium-ion batteries

Due to the high energy per unit of mass of lithium-ion batteries corresponding to other electrical energy storage systems, lithium-ion batteries are extensively used in electric vehicles. It offers high energy efficiency, high power-to-weight ratio, good high-temperature performance, and low self-discharge. The growing trend of electric vehicles puts high demands on the performance of a battery. A vast amount of public and private investment in lithium-ion batteries for technological innovations for better performance drives the growth of electric vehicles, hence, providing growth opportunities for the electric vehicles battery thermal management system market. For instance, in 2021, Ford Motor Co and BMW AG announced a $130 million funding round for Solid Power, an all-solid-state battery startup to develop solid state batteries for electric vehicles to store more energy and provide safety and charge faster. Moreover, in June 2020, researchers at the University of Waterloo, Canada and members of the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR) U.S. have discovered a new solid electrolyte for solid-state lithium-ion batteries, which is expected to enhance safety, reduce the size of batteries, increase efficiency and offer fast charging. The ideal operating temperature range for automotive batteries is 20-45 ° C. Temperature higher or lower than the optimum temperature can lead to deformation of the batteries which causes spark a fire or explosion. For instance, in 2019, Hyundai Kona Electric exploded in its owner's garage in Montreal, Canada. Heat dissipation is significant in electric vehicles to prevent damage to the battery pack from the heat generated during charging and discharging of battery. Owing to this, innovations in lithium ion batteries are carried out by replacing the flammable liquid electrolyte in commonly used Lithium ion batteries with an inorganic solid-state electrolyte to provide more safety and mitigate explosion accidents. These advancements in technologies of lithium ion battery support EV efficiency and charging capabilities that require an efficient and compact battery thermal management system (BTMS) which bolster the growth of the electric vehicle battery thermal management system.
