Electric Axle Drive Systems Market Research Report - Global Forecast till 2023

Posted by Market Research Future on March 13th, 2020

Electric axle drive systems, also known as propulsion systems, constitute an electric motor, power electronics, and transmission that are combined in a compact unit that directly powers the vehicle's axle which aids in making electric vehicle handling less complicated. With these drive systems, electric vehicles (EV) become more compact, efficient, and more cost-attractive.

These compact electric drive solutions systems are developed for all vehicle segments and applicable in both front and rear wheel drives. However, these systems are majorly used in the electrical and hybrid electric applications (vehicles). Moreover, the electric axle drive systems also incorporate several drive components which increases safety, enabling smooth drivability of vehicles.

Over the past couple of years, due to the increasing fuel prices and environmental concerns, governments of countries across the globe are increasingly promoting the uptake of eco-friendly alternatives for vehicles powered by traditional fuels. As a result, the sale of electric vehicles is growing pervasively and so is increasing the sale of these axle drive systems. These factors presage the vast prominence axle drive systems are about to garner in the recent future and the significant traction its market will be gaining soon.

Acknowledging the increasing traction, this market is witnessing currently, Market Research Future (MRFR) in its recently published study report asserts that the electric axle drive systems market will reach USD 8,226.3 Mn by 2023 at a CAGR of 12.31% during the forecast period (2017-2023). Accelerating sales of electric vehicles, fuel cell vehicles, and hybrids and the huge uptake of these systems is a key driving force behind the market growth.

Additional factors substantiating the market growth include the expansion of global auto-manufacturers into new emerging markets, and the increasing investments transpired into the development of these systems.  Moreover, the factor that acts as a key driving force behind the market growth is the unique ability of these drive systems to integrate wheel hub and all components required for a drive such as an axle and deceleration, driving safety into single a unit.

The ability of auto manufacturers to design electric drive systems based on specific vehicle requirements such as off-road/highway vehicles, passenger cars, and commercial vehicles fosters the market growth.

On the other hand, factors such as the high prices of the electric vehicle and underdeveloped aftermarket services are hindering the market growth, restricting the adoption of EVs. Nevertheless, the demand for e-vehicles which is expected to grow in another three to four years will support the market growth.


Global Electric Axle Drive Systems Market - Segmentation

MRFR has analyzed the market according to the following segments

By System Type     : Electric Systems and Hybrid Electric Systems.

By Vehicle Type     : Light Commercial Vehicles (LCV), Heavy Commercial Vehicles (HCV), and Passenger Cars.

By Regions              : North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and the Rest-of-the-World.

Global Electric Axle Drive Systems Market - Regional Analysis

The Asia Pacific region is forecasted to retain its dominance over the global electric axle drive systems market throughout the forecast period. Factors such as the increased electric car sales in countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, and India are predominantly propelling the market growth in the region.

Many countries across the region are rapidly encouraging the adoption of electric vehicles, offering favorable tax benefits. As electric vehicles are less polluting and have reduced environmental impact which further enables these countries to tackle pollution emission problems. China is the largest market for electric vehicles which in 2016, has sold more than 507,000 electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, followed by the US and Europe.

The North American and European regions follow the Asia Pacific region closely in terms of adoption of electric vehicles. Electric vehicles are increasingly becoming affordable in these regions and are on par with the conventional gasoline vehicles for performance and range.

In the North American region factors such as the rising technological enhancements and increasing focus of the government towards the use of eco-friendly, electric vehicles that leave a lesser impact on the environment. Furthermore, the well-established infrastructure in the region supports the market growth, allowing faster implementation of electric vehicles. Additionally, the growing number of manufacturers providing electric axel drive systems at comparatively lower prices is another key factor driving the market growth in the region.

The European region is emerging as another lucrative market for electric axle drive systems, showing considerable growth. Countries such as the U.K., Germany, Sweden, and Italy are contributing to the growth in the regional market.   Undoubtedly, the resurging economy is supporting the market growth in the region, boosting the demand for these axle drive systems in the aftermarket.
