The global automotive energy recovery system market size was valued at USD 17.12 billion in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 18.17 billion in 2023 to USD 29.60 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period.

The automotive energy recovery system is a technology that captures and reuses the energy generated during braking or coasting in a vehicle. The system converts the captured energy into usable forms of energy, such as electrical energy, to power the vehicle's accessories or recharge the battery.

Several automotive manufacturers are focused on the development and production of advanced automotive energy recovery systems with low costs and high efficiencies. For instance, in March 2021, the Advanced Propulsion Centre received funding of EUR 54 million for its commitment across three zero-emission projects. Out of the total funding, EUR 11.3 million has been committed to Shield Manufacturing Technologies to develop & manufacture energy recovery systems designed for motorsport that are integrated with an e-axle and motor to reduce energy use in cars.

The automotive energy recovery system market growth is attributed to the implementation of stringent fuel emission regulations and standards by governments and regulatory bodies. The rise in fuel prices has made energy recovery systems attractive, which helps improve fuel efficiency and reduce the operating costs of vehicles. Moreover, the growing adoption of electric vehicles has resulted in increased demand for energy recovery system owing to its benefit of increasing the driving range. However, high adoption costs, complexity, and limited charging infrastructure restrain the market’s growth during the forecast period.


Implementation of Automotive Energy Systems into Electric Vehicles to Increase Range and Efficiency 

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic impacted the market growth. The pandemic caused disruptions to the global supply chain, resulting in reduced production and the availability of energy recovery systems. The pandemic resulted in a significant decline in vehicle sales, as consumers faced financial uncertainty and prioritized spending on essential items.

However, automakers had to postpone product launches and production schedules due to the pandemic, which delayed the adoption of energy recovery systems in new vehicles. The pandemic also caused a reduction in research and development investments in energy recovery systems as companies prioritized spending on essential areas.

However, governments around the world announced support for measures to revive the automotive industry, including incentives for the purchase of electric vehicles, which use energy recovery systems. Along with this, major players increased their investment in research and development as electric vehicles gained popularity among the populace. This is attributed to propelling the market growth during the forecast period.

Growing Demand for Regenerative Braking Systems Drives Market Growth

Regenerative braking systems help to improve fuel efficiency by recovering energy that would otherwise be lost during braking operations. And this energy is used to charge the batteries of hybrid and electric vehicles. The growing demand for electric vehicles is creating a lucrative market for regenerative braking systems, which provide efficiency and increased range.

Moreover, the advancement in technology in these types of systems provides fuel efficiency, cost-effective solutions, and increased driving range for electric and hybrid vehicles. This is evidenced by the growth of the automotive energy recovery system market forecast. For instance, in August 2022, Brembo, an Italy-based company, developed an AI-based regenerative braking system called Sensify.

With the help of this, the company provided its application into electric vehicles with improved braking performance and reduced cost and complications in all types of vehicles. Brembo developed a radical digital system with Artificial Intelligence that cuts physical ties between the brake pedal and wheels of the cars. This fuels the market growth of the automotive energy recovery system over the forecast period.


Stringent Vehicular Emission Rules and Regulations Fueled Market Growth

Governments around the world are implementing fuel efficiency and emissions standards for vehicles, which require manufacturers to adopt energy recovery systems to meet these standards. This helps the manufacturers comply with the regulations, which fuels the market.

For instance, the Euro 6/VI emission standard The NOX limit declines from 0.18 g/km to 0.08 g/km, a reduction of 56%. And to cater to these standards, major automotive players have designed and developed their vehicles. According to the Transport and Environment Department of the EU, research has shown that NOx emissions can be reduced to just 10% of the current limit (460 mg/kWh) using off-the-shelf technology. This creates a demand for automotive energy recovery systems in vehicles.

Increased Fuel Efficiency and Driving Range to Drive Market Growth

Energy recovery systems can help improve the fuel efficiency of passenger cars and commercial vehicles, which can result in significant cost savings for consumers. Adopting the system can give manufacturers a competitive advantage, as they can offer more fuel-efficient and environment friendly vehicles. In addition, the system can help improve the driving experience by reducing the energy needed to power the vehicle, which can result in improved acceleration and performance.

Additionally, the energy recovery system is also beneficial for increasing the driving range of the electric vehicle. For instance, in January 2022, Porsche announced its newly developed regenerative braking system. This system deployed in the Taycan Turbo S enables it to maximize the power of its regenerative braking system with up to 290 kW. This allows the system to generate sufficient electricity within two seconds of deceleration and adds an additional driving range of 700 meters for the vehicle. Due to this, the range of the vehicle increases by up to 30%, which enhances its overall performance. All these factors drive market growth during the forecast period.


High Production and Maintenance Costs Hinder Market Growth

Energy recovery systems are expensive to develop and implement, which creates a barrier to adoption for some manufacturers and consumers. For instance, the components in regenerative braking have a complex structure and require higher maintenance costs. Therefore, integrating these types of systems can increase the cost of vehicles, making them less appealing to consumers looking for cost-effective options.

Additionally, there is a need for ongoing research and development to improve the efficiency of the system, which increases the cost. In March 2022, Continental AG, located in India, announced a joint venture with Nisshinbo Holdings Inc. (Japan). The new joint venture will produce and sell valve blocks, the main component of electronic brake systems (EBS) and regenerative brake systems. The joint venture will be valued at approximately 13 Million (JPY 1.9 billion), of which 60% will be owned by Nisshinbo HD and 40% by Continental. The plan is to begin its operation in April 2023.
