Global Electric Vehicle Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The global electric vehicle market size is expected to reach USD 5018.02 thousand units in 2024 and reach USD 13899.03 thousand units growing at a CAGR of 22.6% from 2024 to 2029.


An electric vehicle uses electricity to operate, unlike other vehicles that run on fuel. The electric motor installed supplies constant energy from the batteries and does not have any internal combustion engine.

Lithium-ion, zinc-air, molten salt, and other nickel-based design batteries are some varieties of batteries used for electric vehicles. Electric vehicles are specially designed to reduce environmental pollution. With the latest technological advancements in electric vehicles, many people are inclined to adopt these vehicles. The global share of electric vehicles is expected to increase from 2% in 2016 to 30% by the end of 2030. Electric vehicles can be charged through electricity and are environment-friendly vehicles.


The growing prevalence of reducing air pollution across the world by adopting electric vehicles rather than vehicles running on fuel is a huge factor propelling the demand for the electric vehicle market. In addition, government support for the manufacturing of electric vehicles with the latest technologies is a major electric vehicle market trend.


Increasing demand to reduce carbon emissions is a key factor driving the demand of the market.

Growing awareness over the launch of different electric vehicles with the latest features is enhancing the demand of the market. In many countries, government organizations are highly investing in electric vehicles that are leveraging the growth rate of the market. In addition, creating awareness through digital platforms is greatly influencing the demand in the electric vehicle market. Rising demand for zero-emission vehicles is likely to fuel the market demand. Also, the launch of various schemes in favor of the end users by companies is increasing the growth rate of the electric vehicle market. The introduction of vehicles with advanced features is anticipated to level up the growth rate of the electric vehicle market revenue.

In the future, the demand for electric vehicles will increase randomly across the world due to increasing rates of fossil fuel. This attribute is anticipated to bolster the demand of the market to an extent. Decreasing fossil fuel reserves impels the growing prices of petrol and diesel, which is escalating the growth rate of the electric vehicle market. The electric vehicle has the capacity to convert 50% of electrical energy from the grid, which is escalating the demand for the market. E-commerce companies like Amazon and others are adopting electric vehicles to reduce carbon emissions, which is accelerating the demand for the electric vehicle market. The government plans to launch many electric buses as public transport, especially in developed and developing countries, to bolster the demand of the market. Collaborations between the market players to bring an advanced version of electric vehicles with updated features are boosting the demand of the market. Focus on launching lower-cost electric vehicles by automobile companies with the latest technologies to fuel market growth.


However, electric vehicles are high in cost, and common people cannot afford them, which is slowly restricting the demand in the electric vehicle market.

The lack of skilled technicians and high maintenance techniques are hampering the growth rate of the market. Increasing risks of vehicles on long journeys are slightly impeding the demand for electric vehicles. Stringent rules and regulations by the government in approving new technologies are big challenging factors for the market players. The rising cost of the raw materials used to manufacture the electric vehicle is increasing the cost of the end product, which is limiting the demand of this market. The lack of proper charging stations is restraining the growth rate of the market. 

The Impact Of COVID-19 On The Electric Vehicle Market:

The sudden outburst of the COVID-19 pandemic led to huge losses for the companies. Ban on flights and strict lockdown restrictions in 2020 brought many changes for the company. In the initial pandemic days, all the companies were completely shut down due to restrictions imposed by the government that lowered the production and sales of new vehicles. Operative equipment manufacturers were halted till the government released unlock guidelines. In 2021, all companies slowly resumed their activities according to instructions from the government, where the demand for the electric vehicle market is slowly rising. The electric vehicle market shares are soon to hit the highest CAGR.
