Electric Vehicle Traction Batteries 2012-2022This comprehensive report has detailed assessments and forecasts for all the sectors using andlikely to use traction batteries. There are chapters on heavy industrial, lightindustrial/commercial, mobility for the disabled, two wheel and allied, pure electric cars, hybridcars, golf cars, military, marine and other. The profusion of pictures, diagrams and tables pullsthe subject together to give an independent view of the future ten years. Unit sales, unit pricesand total market value are forecast for each sector for 2012-2022. The replacement market isquantified and ten year technology trends by sector are in there too, with a view on winning andlosing technologies and companies.This is the essential reference book for those who are anywhere in the hybrid and pure electricvehicle value chain. Those making materials, cells, battery sets or vehicles, researchers,legislators and market analysts will find it invaluable.The whole pictureWith vehicle traction batteries it is important to look at the whole picture and this report does itfor the first time. The rapidly growing market for traction batteries will exceed $55 billion inonly ten years. However that spans battery sets up to $500,000 each with great sophisticationneeded for military, marine and solar aircraft use. Huge numbers of low cost batteries are beingused for e-bikes but even here several new technologies are appearing. The largest replacementmarket is for e-bikes today and the value market for replacement batteries will not be dominatedby cars when these batteries last the life of the car - something likely to happen within ten years.The trends are therefore complex and that is why IDTechEx has analyzed them with great care.Vehicle manufacturers are often employing new battery technology first in their forklifts or e-bikes, not cars, yet there is huge progress with car batteries as well - indeed oversupply isprobable in this sector at some stage. The mix is changing too. The second largest volume ofelectric vehicles made in 2010 was mobility aids for the disabled but in ten years time it will behybrid cars. The market for car traction batteries will be larger than the others but there will onlybe room for six or so winners in car batteries and other suppliers and users will need to dominatetheir own niches to achieve enduring growth and profits. Strategy must be decided now.In this report, researched in 2010 and 2012 and frequently updated, we analyse the successes, theneeds, the statistics and the market potential for traction batteries for all the major applications.This has never been done before. It is important to look at the whole picture because tractionbattery manufacturers typically sell horizontally across many applications and electric vehiclemanufacturers increasingly make versions for many applications - heavy industrial, on road,leisure and so on. Indeed, the smarter putative suppliers will choose the sectors that best leveragetheir strengths rather than join the herd and be obliterated by corporations of up to $100 billion insize enjoying prodigious government support.
