Plug In Hybrid Electric Vehicles MarketExpected to Account for US$ 20,000 Mn by 2022

Global Market Study on Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles: Europe will be Fastest Expanding
Market for PHEVs during 2017 - 2022
Persistence Market Research (PMR), in its latest published report, has projected a staggering 13.4%
CAGR for the global plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) market throughout the forecast
period (2017-2022). Global sales of PHEVs are expected to account for over US$ 20,000 Mn
revenues by 2022-end.
PHEVs to Come with Lower Life Cycle Costs than Vehicles Equipped with IC & Hydrogen Fuelcell
With the potential to lower greenhouse gas emissions, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles have longer
driving ranges without being restrained by battery capacity limits, and provide higher fuelefficiency. Greening up the grid & utilising exiting electricity infrastructure is gaining popularity as
a new trend among PHEV manufacturers, rather than constructing an entirely new vehicle refuelling
infrastructure in order to accommodate green liquid fuels for transportation purposes.
From the perspective of consumers, PHEVs offer both, economic & environmental benefits, and
flexibility & convenience of traditional fuels concerning longer travels. In next ten years, plug-in
hybrid electric vehicles will come with a comparatively lower lifecycle prices, than the internal
combustion (IC) and hydrogen fuel-cell engine equipped vehicles. In addition, approximately 4 Mn
units of PHEVs are expected to be sold, with impending 100 new models to be launched globally,
indicating a transformational growth for the PHEVs market. This growth would mainly be favoured
by consumer attraction towards the appealing alternatively-fuelled vehicles.

Forging a Strong Relationship with Retail Vehicle Dealers Imperative for PHEV Manufacturers
Most of the population around the world has been observed to be unaware of PHEV technology. In
addition, when it comes to electric vehicle technologies, consumers are hesitant in its adoption
owing to concerns with recharging, convenience, and battery life along with its replacement cost.
Forging a strong relationship with retail vehicle dealers is therefore imperative for manufacturers to
spread information and awareness about PHEVs, and exceed level of competence.
High-performance & luxury vehicle manufacturers are inclining toward adoption of hybrid
technology for making innovations and developments in their existing designs. Automotive giants
such as Volkswagen, BMW, and Mercedes Benz, are focusing on developing their dedicated
electrified platforms, to remain compliant with strict emission norms imposed on vehicles. A slew
of research centres, including The Plug-in Hybrid & Electric Vehicle (PH&EV) Research Center,
are concentrating on making collaborations with automotive manufacturers, regulators, various
utilities, and also other research institutions such as Argonne National Lab, for developing
sustainable market for PHEVs.
Key Takeaways from PMR’s Report on Global Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles Market
Although APEJ is anticipated to remain the most lucrative market for PHEVs, the market in Europe
is projected to register the highest CAGR through 2022. In addition, North America is expected to
be the second-largest market for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles by 2022-end.
Stored electricity will continue to be preferred power source for PHEVs across the globe, with sales
estimated to account for nearly US$ 16,000 Mn revenues by 2022-end. On-board electric generator
will remain a relatively less attractive power source for PHEVs among customers.
Parallel hybrid powertrain for PHEVs are expected to remain sought-after in the market, with
revenues projected to account for approximately three-fourth share of the market during 2017 to
On the basis of vehicle type, passenger cars segment of PHEVs are expected to remain the most
lucrative in the global market, with sales projected to exhibit the fastest expansion through 2022.
Commercial vehicles are expected to be the second most lucrative vehicle type of PHEVs in the
market by 2022-end.
