Growing Adoption of Electric Vehicles Likely to Increase Adoption of Hub Motors

Due to growing environmental concerns, the demand for electric vehicles has increased at an impressive rate worldwide. At the back of rising consumer interest for electric vehicles, the global hub motor market is projected to witness considerable growth. The adoption for hub motors in the electric vehicles space is expected to remain one of the key drivers of market growth during the assessment period. Over the past few years, electric unicycles have garnered considerable popularity across the personal transportation sector. In addition, electric unicycles are increasingly being used as a feasible solution to address last mile transportation challenges. The adoption of hub motors to manufacture electric unicycles has increased at a consistent pace over the past couple of years and the trend is expected to continue during the forecast period– a factor that is likely to boost market growth. While the demand for hub motors to develop electric unicycles is on the rise, the demand for hub motors to manufacture electric bikes is growing. As China currently leads in the production of electric bikes, it is expected to remain one of the key markets for players operating in the hub motor market for electric vehicle.

Demand to Dip in 2020 amid COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic effect on the automotive sector around the world. As the COVID-19 infection spreads, government authorities around the world have been largely focusing on restricting the transmission of the novel coronavirus by imposing stringent lockdowns and restrictions on cross-border trade and transportation. Operations across the entire supply chain within the automotive sector have been largely disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic due to which, the demand and supply for hub motors is likely to remain lower than initial projections.

The industrial lockdown in China in the first quarter of 2020 has put forward several barriers across the supply chain due to which, market growth is expected to remain sluggish in 2020. The demand for electric vehicles is projected to hit a record-low in comparison with the previous years, which, in turn, is likely to have a direct impact on the expansion of the hub motor market for electric vehicle, particularly in the Asia Pacific region.

Hub Motor Market for Electric Vehicle: Overview​

  • The global hub motor market for electric vehicle is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 22.57% during the forecast period, owing to the rise in sale and the production of electric vehicles across the globe that has led to an increase in consumption and hence, is expected to boost the production of hub motor. Increase in demand for noiseless operation and a surge in the demand for fuel-efficiency are likely to propel the global hub motor market for electric vehicle during the forecast period.
  • Stringent enactment of rules and regulations regarding vehicle emission norms across the globe is likely to increase the trend toward vehicle electrification. Developed counties, including the U.S. and Japan are more focused on the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs). China, Japan, Norway, and the U.S. account for nearly 80% of the global electric vehicle market, which in turn is likely to propel the hub motor market for electric vehicle across the globe.

Hub Motor Market for Electric Vehicle: Drivers

  • Rise in demand for smart cities and growing urbanization across the globe have fueled the usage of electric vehicles significantly, which is likely to augment the hub motor market for electric vehicle during the forecast period
  • Significant rise in the price of crude oil for the past few years has made vehicle rides more expensive and inefficient. Lightweight vehicles offer great potential to increase vehicle efficiency. This is a key factor prompting automakers to switch toward electric vehicles in order to offer both efficient and reduced emission vehicles. This is anticipated to boost the hub motor market for electric vehicle across the globe.

Hub Motor Market for Electric Vehicle: Challenges

  •  Major vehicle manufacturers shut down their plants due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which led to the decline in vehicle production and sale.
