U.S. minivans market size, by fuel type, 2019 - 2028 (USD Billion)

New stylish products with excellent passenger and cargo space, flexible floorplan, and connected technologies are being launched in the market by the manufacturers which are the selling points of the minivans. Global minivans industry growth is substantially restrained by rising immense popularity and increasing competition from the other passenger vehicles, especially SUVs. These vehicles are gaining traction in the most major automotive markets, hindering the market growth of minivans. Furthermore, stringent rules and regulations hamper the market growth. Stricter emission rules and standards by the governments and environmental authoritative bodies are also restraining factors limiting the market growth.

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively affected the overall automotive industry. Automotive industry production plummeted due to various challenges including, lack of labor, supply chain disruption, lack of automotive parts, shortage of semiconductor chips, etc. The minivans market experienced a fall in unit sales and market revenue during the pandemic as production was halted. Also, due to the lockdowns and restrictions, consumers’ influx to the dealer’s showroom was affected significantly resulting in a declined consumer demand. The market is likely to experience a little shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic in the future, however, recover with steady and slow growth over the forecast period.

Fuel Type Insights

The diesel segment accounted for a global market revenue share of over 90%. This largest market revenue share of the diesel fuel type segment is attributed to the higher consumer preference for the diesel models of minivans over the other fuel type. Diesel-powered vans are efficient as well as powerful, suitable for multipurpose vehicles such as minivans for light-duty hauling and towing capacity. Diesel-powered minivans effectively deal with the payloads running at a low cost compared to the other fuel-type vehicles. Furthermore, the majority of the minivan models available in the market are diesel engine models.

The electric segment of the fuel type is anticipated to witness the fastest growth rate, registering a CAGR of 7.3% over the forecast period. The electric vehicle market is rapidly increasing as well as evolving due to technological developments in electric batteries and other areas. It has become a prime concern of global leaders and automotive manufacturers to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels and prevent global warming. Government initiatives and manufacturers' increasing product launches are expected to drive the segment growth in the global minivans industry. For instance, according to media report more than 10 electric models are expected to make their launch in the coming years including, Chrysler Pacifica EV, Voyah Dreamer, Mercedes EQT, Hyundai Staria FCEV, etc.

Regional Insights

The Asia Pacific dominated the global market and held the largest market revenue share of around 60% in 2021. This is credited to the higher consumer adoption and usage of minivans in China, and Japan. The body built and cargo space of the minivan models are more appealing to the consumers in the region compared to the others. Moreover, the market key player’s strong presence, higher brand awareness, and market penetration in the region are also attributable to higher market share. The market in the region is well- established with frequent product launches credited for the higher market revenue. For instance, as reported on 13th January 2022, Toyota launched new Noah and Voxy minivans in Japan, redesigned with TNGA (GA-C) platform, comfortable seats, and roomy cabin space. Also, for instance, Hyundai started to sell Staria minivans in Thailand in July 2021.
