Although recent report total revenue numbers may differ in the global electric vehicle market, new studies from Statista and Allied Market Research say the future is very optimistic and project a significant rise in revenues in the next several years.
The report from Statista projected that between 2019 and 2026, the size of the global electric vehicle market is expected to reach an estimated global market size of $567 billion U.S. dollars by 2026. This translates to a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of around 15.6 percent between 2019 and 2026.
A report from Allied Market Research projected even higher revenues, stating that the global electric vehicle market was valued at $162.34 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $802.81 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 22.6%.
The studies found that electric vehicles (EVs) have become a much more attractive choice to consumers in recent years thanks to increased range, battery life, efficiency and affordability. EVs have taken the automotive market in northern European states by storm. Furthermore, almost 1.7 million electric vehicles are projected to be sold in China through 2019, and sales figures are expected to double to reach about 3.7 million in 2021.
Recent developments from EV manufacturers also indicate expected growth in the U.S., authors of the study report.
