The global automotive battery thermal management system market size is projected to reach USD 7.13 billion by 2028 from its value USD 2.17 billion in 2021, at CAGR of 18.5% during forecast period. The automotive battery thermal management system market was valued at USD 2.09 billion in 2020.

Based on our analysis, the market exhibited a huge decline of -18.00% in 2020. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with a slight decline in the sales & production of the vehicles and decreasing demand across all regions amid the pandemic. The sudden rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

The automotive battery thermal management system involves several digital electronic hardware devices to prevent battery failure and mitigate potential hazardous situations. Moreover, this system ensures that the battery in vehicles operates/functions properly in the final applications. The electric vehicle batteries work precisely at temperature ranges between 20°C to 40°C. Further, this is achieved using battery thermal management systems that keep batteries function properly despite environmental changes.

The original equipment manufacturers are steadily focusing on development & innovation in lithium battery type to increase the adoption of these systems. The leading companies use a liquid, air, and PCM type of technology for cooling & heating the battery in vehicles. Further, the components used by the companies include hybrid and electric vehicle battery cooling chiller, electronic cooling plate, stator cooler, sub-cooled loop radiator, Engine Control Unit (ECU) Cooler, and ADAS cooling. The companies operating in the industry are also taking an active step by offering new products, developments and adopting new strategies to expand their product portfolio and business growth. Therefore, the system market is expected to gain popularity in the forthcoming years.

Reduced Sales of New Vehicles amid COVID-19 to Hamper Market Growth

The global outbreak of coronavirus disease has had a severe impact on the overall automotive industry. Both value & supply chain players have been heavily disturbed. This pandemic has caused immense uncertainty in the industry. Several automotive manufacturers have to shut down their manufacturing plants for a stipulated period. Moreover, limited part supply, non-efficient production in quarantine, a reduced workforce, declining liquidity, and many other factors have lead OEMs to shut down their production facilities.

For instance, global automotive light vehicles (LV) sales have dropped by 20% from 2019-2020. Besides, global EV sales decreased by 18% in 2020, while EV registration for 2021 compared to 2020 has declined by 20%.  However, the market players are putting their utmost effort into overcoming the uncertainty caused by the pandemic by incorporating development in the public transport sector. It is worth noting that considering the type of the industry, people are optimistic that once the pandemic situation eases out, the automotive manufacturing-related work business is set to rebound back rapidly.

Although the pandemic's span is difficult to anticipate, recent announcements of the arrival of the COVID-19 vaccines in early 2021 are likely to favor the automotive industry. Moreover, many companies are now resuming public transportation services, thereby implementing various safety procedures & norms that will favor the global market for automotive battery thermal management system.

Increasing Penetration of Electric Vehicles to Set a Positive Trend for Market Growth

Gasoline fuel-type vehicles are likely to be exhausted in the future. Some European countries such as Norway, the UK, and the Netherlands have already declared to phase out conventional vehicles. The demand for fuel-efficient vehicles has increased recently due to the rise in petrol and diesel prices. The companies are also involved in the activities to lower the overall weight of the electric vehicle as it possesses a higher weight compared to ICE vehicles because of their battery. Moreover, the North American countries such as the U.S and Canada are also actively enforcing the EV vehicle compulsion in effect within the next few years. Such strong developments, coupled with government support, create a demand for the thermal battery management system inside the EV.

Furthermore, the rising demand for plug-in EVs and hybrid vehicles will aid in the growth of EV makers, OEMs, battery and battery technology companies, and automotive BTMS manufacturers. For instance, Valeo Company has developed smart thermal management solutions of batteries for EVs that help maintain better battery life and further increases the battery range by up to 30% in both seasons. In addition, the company also offers electrically driven compressors (EDCs) for cooling batteries and climate control. Therefore, these developments & innovations will help to boost the market growth in the future as EV sales rise.


Increasing Preference for Utilization of Lithium-ion Batteries to Aid Growth

The growing inclination towards advanced technology-based vehicles, including lightweight, is projected to drive the global automotive battery thermal management system market growth. Industry leaders and customers majorly prefer the lithium-ion battery technology used in vehicles for various applications. This is due to its higher energy density, longer life cycle of batteries, and better resilience. Similarly, companies actively use such batteries in thermal battery management systems to ensure proper working and safety.

Automakers have started using such batteries in several applications such as electronic devices, EVs, and industrial machinery, among others. Furthermore, these batteries are prone to hazards and detect all kinds of malfunctions, such as the excessive rise of temperature and electric leak and the state of charge at temperatures in the charging/discharging environment. The COVID-19 situation has alerted many developing countries, including India, to encourage local production of li-ion batteries and automotive battery thermal management systems. The countries are moving towards local production of all the components and raw materials owing to the rising demand for the EV instead of depending on China for Li-ion batteries, electronic components, and other requirements. These steps and supportive government policies and infrastructure development will create a demand for the thermal battery management system market in the coming few years.


Increasing Design Complexity and High Price of System May Restrain Market Growth

The thermal battery management system varies according to vehicle design and battery capacity. Therefore, installation and manufacturing of new units for vehicles incur higher costs. Moreover, the thermal components face issues such as verifying thermal designs of components, designing the optimal flow channels, lowering power requirements, reducing the overall vehicle weight and cost, the battery-specific coolant system, the complexity of model and flow, etc.

Furthermore, the number of component presence and increased temperature caused by high power are hazardous and may result in short circuits or fire. In addition, the use of a thermal battery management system can lead to a notable rise in the final cost of a product or application, resulting in reduced demand from cost-sensitive consumers. Thus, such complexities in the fundamental designing of the automotive battery thermal management system may hinder the growth of the global market.


By Propulsion Type Analysis

To know how our report can help streamline your business, Speak to Analyst

HEV Segment Dominates the Market

Based on propulsion type, the key market is segmented into battery electric vehicles (BEV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV).

The HEV segment holds the largest share globally, and the BEV segment is expected to lead throughout the forecast period. This HEV offers dual transmission, i.e., electric and conventional fuel-based driving range, especially in the region where charging infrastructure is insufficient.

Adoption of advanced and efficient technology for vehicles, rising demand for the electrical, passenger as well as heavy commercial vehicles across the globe, and increasing need for fuel-efficient & emission standard vehicles are some of the factors that will likely enhance the growth of the BEV automotive battery thermal management system market.

The plug-in hybrid EV segment is comparatively growing significantly. The decreasing battery & overall price of such vehicles and government initiatives support the favorable policy related to EV will demand the market in the future.
