Automotive Battery Thermal Management System Market: Introduction
According to the report, the global automotive battery thermal management system market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 38.5% during the forecast period. Government incentives and subsidies, expansion of charging infrastructure, increase in battery life and performance, surge in awareness about global temperature rise, development of fast electric vehicle chargers, and decline in electric vehicle prices are primarily driving the electric vehicle sector, which in turn is propelling the automotive battery thermal management system market. Batteries are the power source for electric vehicles and their performance, life, and efficiency varies according to temperature. Thus, the battery thermal management system is an essential part of electric vehicles, as it maintains adequate temperature of the battery in order to enhance battery life and reduce lifecycle cost. According to studies, battery life reduces by two months when the temperature of battery increases 1ºC in the range of 30ºC to 40ºC. Therefore, the battery thermal management system plays a vital role in increasing battery lifespan by maintaining adequate temperature of the battery and subsequently, the demand for this system is expected to increase during the forecast period.
Active battery thermal managements systems are widely utilized, owing to their simplicity and inexpensiveness. In an active battery thermal management system, coolant is force circulated through pipes surrounding the battery cells. The coolant used in a battery thermal management system can be air or liquid. Liquid-based systems are popular, owing to their cost-effectiveness and ability to maintain stable battery temperature. The air-based active battery thermal management system is simple and inexpensive; however, it becomes less effective at higher temperatures such as 40ºC to 55ºC.
The 12 volt batteries are widely utilized in electric vehicles. These batteries are inexpensive and compact; therefore, several manufacturers use these in electric vehicles. The 12 volt segment of the global automotive battery thermal management system market held a prominent share of the market, in terms of revenue, in 2018. However, the newly developed 48 volt batteries, which have larger power capacity and faster charging speed, owing to their lower power capacity and longer charging time, are gaining popularity. The 48 volt and higher capacity battery segment of the global automotive battery thermal management system market is anticipated to expand at a prominent CAGR of 53.91% during the forecast period.
