The global market for Electric Vehicles (EVs) is forecast to reach 3.5 million units by 2022, driven by the strong environmental concerns raised by the unsustainable, fossil fuel hungry automobile industry and the ensuing focus on developing alternatively fueled powertrains. Other major factors driving growth include positive reinforcement for the development of support infrastructure for EVs such as recharging stations; stringent vehicular emission norms; advancements in Lithium-Ion battery technologies and the resulting increase in performance and reduction in prices; and successful commercialization of plug-in hybrid electric vehicle long electric range (PHEVLER). Asia-Pacific ranks as one of the most important markets worldwide with a CAGR of 27.9% over the analysis period. The growth in the region is led by factors such as growing stringency of the hitherto lax environmental policies as a result of increasing international pressure to reduce pollution; falling battery costs and decline in overall cost of EVs; aggressive production and sales goals in China supported by the huge subsidies offered by the Chinese government; and establishment of non-profit organizations like the Electric Vehicle Association of Asia Pacific (EVAAP) for the development, propagation and use of EVs.
