Hybrid Vehicle Market Growth Factors

Positive Environmental Impact of Hybrid Vehicles to Fuel Its Demand

Hybrid cars combine the advantages of electric and gasoline engines. These vehicles offer better power and fuel efficiency compared to conventional vehicles. For example, using hybrid systems can lessen fuel consumption by up to 35%, corresponding to an increase in fuel economy of more than 50%. Most hybrids use advanced technologies, such as automatic start/stop, reduced vehicle downtime by automatically shutting off the engine when the vehicle stops, and instant acceleration when restarted.

In addition, the electric motor produces energy through regenerative braking using renewable energy. This can help the engine when overtaking, climbing hills, or accelerating. In addition, the electric motor can drive the vehicle autonomously at low speeds where internal combustion engines are least efficient. Thus, the positive environmental effects of hybrid systems are driving the market's growth.


Increasing Adoption of FCEV and BEV to Restrain Market Growth

Major car manufacturers, such as Volkswagen, BYD, and Tesla, are focusing on developing Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) or purely electric vehicles. These vehicles eliminate dependence on internal combustion engines and conventional fuel and offer other advantages. Similarly, Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs) offer benefits such as zero-emission, long-range, easy refueling, and quiet operation.

Therefore, governments actively encourage the sale of BEVs and FCEVs through various initiatives. For example, the California Air Resources Board's (CARB) Clean Vehicle Rebate Program (CVRP) offers a rebate of up to $7,000 on purchasing or leasing FCEVs and BEVs. Thus,  the increased adoption of BEVs and FCEVs is expected to curb the market growth.

Hybrid Vehicle Market Segmentation Analysis 

By Vehicle Type Analysis

Higher Fuel Efficiency of Passenger Cars to Augment Their Sales

The market, based on vehicle type, is fragmented into passenger cars and commercial vehicles. Hybrid cars are best suited for stop-and-go driving, where intermittent use of the electric motor can enable significant fuel cost savings. Hence, the passenger car segment is expected to hold the largest share of the market over the forecast period.

The commercial vehicle segment is also anticipated to show considerable growth in the market. This growth can be attributed to global government initiatives to increase the hybridization of public transit vehicles and adopt hybrid heavy-duty vehicles in land-based freight operations.

By Electric Powertrain Analysis

Parallel Hybrids to Hold Largest Share Backed by Lower Costs and Higher Efficiency

Based on electric powertrain, the global market is segmented into parallel and parallel-series combinations. Parallel hybrids offer better flexibility to switch between ICE and electric motor power and higher power efficiency during long-distance driving and cruising. In addition, compared to older hybrids, only one electric motor is required, which can be designed to be more efficient than an internal combustion engine. Hence, these factors will help the parallel hybrid segment hold a leading share of the market.

The parallel-series hybrid segment is anticipated to show a major growth rate in the market as it offers more efficient urban driving and can function in a constrained rpm range, which is the most effective range of these hybrids. Most of the newly launched vehicles are upgrading their powertrain to parallel-series combinations. This system requires larger battery packs and a generator, which can incur higher costs than a pure parallel hybrid system. Vehicles incorporated with this system will perform better and be more fuel-efficient than others. Thus, this segment is expected to contribute majorly to the market’s progress during the forecast period.

By Degree of Hybridization Analysis

Full Hybrid Segment Dominated in 2023 Fueled by Flexible Operation and Fuel Economy

The market is divided into mild, full, and plug-in hybrids based on the degree of hybridization. In 2022, the full plug-in hybrid segment held the largest hybrid vehicle market share. Batteries, internal combustion engines, or a combination of these can power these vehicles. In addition, most hybrid models produced by key players, such as Toyota and Lexus, are full hybrids, and fuel efficiency has steadily improved in recent years.

Thus, these factors are contributing to the dominance of the full plug-in hybrid segment. The organic hybrid and plug-in hybrid segments are expected to record a higher CAGR during the forecast period. These vehicles offer advantages, such as more efficient acceleration and lower engine load, especially in urban driving, and are generally more affordable than full hybrids. The mild hybrid also indicated a noticeable rise in its demand in the market.
