The global electric mobility market size was USD 230.12 billion in 2020 and is projected to grow from USD 279.45 billion in 2021 to USD 1,507.21 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 27.2% in the 2021-2028 period. The global impact of COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with electric mobility witnessing a positive impact on demand across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global e-mobility market exhibited a stellar growth of 21.16% in 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s growth and demand, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

The global automotive sector is undergoing once in a century revolution. Rapidly changing electric vehicle economics and growing automotive electrification are driving an exponential rise in electric vehicle sales. Additionally, strengthening the electric vehicle charging service network and infrastructural development is fueling the electric mobility market growth. For instance, 2020 was the record-breaking year for electric mobility. According to International Energy Agency (IEA), in 2020, the overall global EV sales surpassed more than 3 million units globally.

The sales growth was majorly driven by government initiatives to offer subsidies and tax benefits on electric vehicle purchases. For instance, incentives offered in Europe on EV purchases in 2020 have fueled the EV sales in the region and boosted the global e-mobility market. Moreover, shifting consumer preference from conventional to electric vehicle purchase due to environmental concern and tightening emission norms worldwide has also influenced the market growth.


Government Policies and Incentives to Fuel Market Growth

The spread of COVID-19 has severely affected the overall automotive industry, closed manufacturing facilities, disrupted supply chains, and declining demand for automotive during the pandemic, which significantly affected the overall automotive sales. However, its impact on the global e-mobility market has been reversed due to government stimulus incentives, packages, and tax benefits for the adoption of electric mobility.

For instance, due to policy support and stringent emission norms from the European Union, Europe witnessed more than double EV sales in 2020 compared to the previous year. Both Europe and China witnessed a surge in EV sales during the pandemic. According to the IEA, in 2020, the number of new EVs registered globally increased 41% as compared to 2019 and reached total registrations of more than 3 million units.

Rising Trend for Adoption of Electric Micro-Mobility to Drive Market Growth

The ongoing trend for adopting electric micro-mobility is expected to emerge intact and expected to thrive in the long term. Due to extensive social distancing guidelines, disrupted public transport worldwide, and higher awareness regarding environmental concerns and personal hygiene, consumers prefer to utilize electrical micro-mobility products, such as electric bikes, e-scooters, and others, rather than public transportation for short commute. Moreover, rising fuel prices and stringent emission norms further support the development of electric micro-mobility globally.

Governments across the globe are also promoting the adoption of electric micro-mobility to fight climate change and become carbon neutral. For instance, in April 2020, Milan introduced an ambitious scheme to reallocate 35 km of streets for cycling amid pandemic; these streets were previously used by cars. Additionally, the rising level of road traffic and the lowering lithium-ion battery prices are expected to boost the adoption of electric micro-mobility in the coming years.

Furthermore, automakers’ focus on specially designed electric two-wheelers and low-speed vehicles for emerging economies to grab early revenue growth opportunities is also anticipated to propel the market growth in future. For instance, in August 2021, ride-hailing and electric automotive manufacturing company, Ola, launched its S1pro and S1 electric scooter models in India at a competitive price. The company intends to cater to the growing electric micro-mobility demand in India.


Increasing Demand for Emission Free Vehicles to Drive Market Growth

Governments across the globe enforce stringent emission norms to reduce carbon emissions and fight climate change. Additionally, they introduce various scrapping policies for conventional or fossil fuel-powered vehicles. Therefore, due to increasing insecurity regarding the adoption and future use of conventional or fossil fuel-powered vehicles, consumers’ preference is shifting toward electric vehicles, which is expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period.

Lower Lithium-ion Batteries Cost to Fuel Market Growth

The high cost of electric vehicles is one of the major obstacles for the adoption of electric mobility. However, recent technological developments and automakers’ focus on the mass production of lithium-ion batteries have reduced the cost of li-ion batteries over the years, resulting in a significant decline in EV cost. The drop in lithium-ion batteries’ cost is expected to continue in the coming years, further influencing market growth.

Automakers Commitment to Become Carbon Neutral to Propel Market Growth

Almost all the leading automakers have already pledged to become carbon neutral in the near future. They intend to stop manufacturing fossil fuel-powered vehicles and electrify their entire product portfolio. For instance, in February 2021, Ford Motors Company announced that its European division would soon phase out of fossil fuel-powered vehicle production, and by 2026, Ford will only offer electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. Moreover, by 2030, all passenger vehicles will be powered by batteries only. Therefore, automakers’ focus on rapid electrification is anticipated to boost the market growth over the forecast period.


Global Semiconductor Chip Shortage to Hamper Market Growth

The global semiconductor chip shortage has also reduced the overall EV production. For instance, major automakers, including Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, General Motors, and others have already witnessed a drop in the production volume of new electric vehicles, resulting in a shortage of new electric vehicles and increase in delivery time and cost of the EVs. Moreover, the slow adoption of electric mobility in some developing and underdeveloped countries may also restrain the market growth in the coming years.
