Report Overview

The global electric vehicle battery thermal management systems market size was valued at USD 1.6 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 28.5% from 2020 to 2027. Increasing adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) across the globe is the primary factor driving the growth of this market. Countries, such as China, U.S., and Norway, have registered significant rise in the sales of EVs, which in turn, will contribute to the market growth.

Global EV battery thermal management systems market size

Thermal management systems are required to maintain the adequate temperature range of the battery for effective functioning. Increasing penetration of battery-powered vehicles has pushed manufacturers to develop improved heat management systems for batteries. Reducing size of the batteries along with fast charging capabilities are hindering the market growth. However, technological advancements in the field of heat management for batteries are likely to support market expansion. Electric vehicles run on a battery and therefore offer limited operational range on a single charge.

This has motivated the battery manufacturers to develop products with fast charging capabilities. Fast charging of the battery generates more heat, which is required to be taken care of to prevent damage to the battery cells. Moreover, batteries are the single source to provide traction to the EVs, which results in high operating temperature of the batteries. Thus, automotive component manufacturers are focusing on developing advanced cooling methods to control the high temperatures of these batteries, which is expected to bolster the market growth in the coming years.

Various governments across the globe have established stringent carbon emission norms for vehicles. As a result, there has been a shift in the customer preference from Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) towards Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs). In addition, Plug-in Hybrid EVs or PHEVs have also become popular globally as they run on both battery as well as IC engines.

On the other hand, the global coronavirus pandemic has highly impacted the manufacturing & production capabilities of organizations across industries, including automotive. As such, the current production rate of EVs has been largely deviated from the pre-Covid-19 forecasted figure for 2020. Furthermore, a global lockdown situation followed by falling demand for vehicles and supply chain disruptions is expected to hamper the market growth. However, various governments are taking initiatives to boost the economy and improve the infrastructure, which is anticipated to bolster the market growth over the forecast period.

System Type Insights

The passive system type led the global market and accounted for more than 78% of the overall revenue share in 2019. The segment is expected to continue its dominance over the coming years due to high demand for passive systems as they provide hundreds of watts of cooling and heating power.

Moreover, the cost associated with passive thermal management systems and its components is lesser as compared to the active cooling systems. The active type segment is expected to register the highest CAGR over the forecast period on account of the growing adoption of the systems that involve the use of air or liquid for cooling or heating the battery cells. Active battery thermal management systems (BTMS) increases battery life and efficiency.

Application Insights

The passenger vehicle segment held the largest market share of over 87% in 2019. The segment will retain the leading position expanding at the highest CAGR over the forecast period due to the easy availability of passenger EVs across the globe. In addition, several governments are taking initiatives to encourage the adoption of EVs, which is further driving the growth of this segment.

Global EV battery thermal management systems market share

The commercial vehicle segment is expected to register a significant CAGR over the forecast period owing to the increased demand for battery-operated buses and lightweight trucks. For instance, as per the report issued by IEA, there was a stock of 460,000 electric buses and 250,000 light commercial vehicles (LCVs) in 2018, which were increased by around 80,000 units of LCVs from 2017. The increase in the number of battery-operated commercial vehicles can be attributed to the extraordinary savings in the running cost that EV provides. Although operating cost decreases to some extent which is motivating the use of EVs, the lower load capacity of these commercial vehicles may hinder the segment growth. However, technological developments coupled with better heat management systems are expected to help reduce the effect of this restraint.

Regional Insights

The Asia Pacific was the dominant regional market in 2019 and accounted for over 44% of the global revenue share. It is expected to grow further at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Countries, such as China and Japan, are the major contributors to the regional market. Increasing the adoption of EVs in the region, especially in China, is the major growth-driving factor. Moreover, growing consumer preference for EVs due to rising awareness about the benefits of these vehicles is expected to propel the regional market growth.

Europe's regional market is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to the presence of several key automobile and component manufactures, such as BMW, Fiat, Daimler AG, Volkswagen, Mercedes, and Volvo, in the region. Major contributors in the European market include Norway, Germany, France, The Netherlands, and U.K. Norway has the highest penetration of EVs worldwide and ranks third, in terms of EV sales, globally.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

The market is moderately fragmented with the presence of several local companies. These market players are striving to gain higher market share by adopting strategies, such as investments, partnerships, and acquisitions & mergers. Companies are also spending on the development of improved battery cooling systems to aid better and lasting performance of the battery systems. Moreover, they are also focusing on maintaining competitive pricing.

Furthermore, the criticality of maintaining the average temperature range of the battery in EVs has forced the market players to develop newer ways of monitoring the real-time battery performance. For instance, in 2019, Robert Bosch GmbH announced a new cloud-connected battery management software service, which is designed to monitor and manage the status of electric batteries in EVs from a remote location. In addition, this will help in increasing the battery life by up to 20%. Some of the prominent players in the electric vehicle battery thermal management systems market include:
