NEW YORK, Nov. 22, 2021 -- As per latest Fact.MR analysis, sales in the EV traction motors market are estimated to be valued at US$ 6.4 Bn by the end of 2021. With rapid adoption of electric vehicles, the overall market is projected to register a CAGR of 25% between 2021 and 2031, reaching a valuation of around US$ 60 Bn by 2031.

With the world moving towards sustainable future, demand for eco-friendly transport options is on the rise. Automotive manufacturers are gradually expanding their portfolio to include electric and hybrid vehicles. This in turn is creating enormous demand for EV traction motors as they form an important component for electric vehicles.

Increasing production and sales of electric & hybrid vehicles is primarily driving the EV traction motor market. According to the International Energy Association (IEA), more than 10 million electric cars were on roads across the world in 2020, which is a 43% increase over 2019.

Governments and other organizations such as European Union are adopting various initiatives to boost the adoption of electric and hybrid vehicles. New carbon emission regulations are being implemented to minimize environmental damage due to vehicle pollution. For instance, on January 2020, Regulations (EU) 2019/631 entered into force, setting CO2 emission standards for new passenger cars and vans.

Similarly in July 2021, the European Commission adopted a series of legislative proposals for achieving climate neutrality in the EU by 2050, including the intermediate target of an at least 55% net reduction in greenhouse gas emission by 2030. This is positively impacting the EV traction motor market.

Leading EV traction motor manufacturers are investing heavily in research activities for developing better EV traction motors that will not only provide high performance but also reduce the overall weight of vehicles.

For instance, in May 2021, EVR Motors, an Israeli startup unveiled a new high-performance electric motor that it claims is half the size and lighter than typical electric motor design, which could lead to greater EV performance at lower production costs.

As per Fact.MR, the demand for traction motors in plug-in hybrid vehicles category will increase at fastest rate over the forecast period. This is attributable to the rising ownership of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles due to their zero tailpipe emissions while driving on battery power and accruing of tax efficiency.

China, which is the largest producer of automotive, will continue to dominate the EV traction motor market, expanding at a colossal CAGR of 33% between 2021 and 2031. Presence of leading automotive players, rising adoption of electric and hybrid vehicles, and increasing government support to reduce carbon emission are some of the factors driving the market in the country.

"Amid growing concerns over automotive emissions, governments across the world are implementing various programs to boost the adoption of electric vehicles and control carbon emission. Besides implementation of stringent emission control standards, key players are gaining impetus from monetary support in terms of budgetary allocations encouraging electric vehicle production. This will bode well for the EV traction motor market," says a Fact.MR analyst
