Report Scope
Hybrid electric vehicles have become one of the most promising new markets for OEM’s.An increasing number of functions that traditionally were performed by mechanical or electrical systems are now handled by electronics.

Automobiles are experiencing a technological revolution. Global warming, climate change and air quality issues have combined with the dramatic fluctuation of oil prices to deliver an imperative for motor vehicle manufacturers to introduce radically more fuel-efficient vehicles to the market.

Toyota, Honda, Ford, Chevrolet, BMW, Volvo and BYD, among others, are leading the world in car innovations including the design of highly sophisticated hybrid electric vehicles.

Market data contained in this report quantifies opportunities for manufacturers of hybrid electric vehicle components.In addition to identification of mechanical and electrical component types, it also covers the many issues concerning the merits of and prospects for the hybrid electric vehicle business.

This includes corporate strategies, emerging technologies and the means for providing low cost, high technology products. Also covered in detail are the economic and technological issues regarded by many as critical to the industry’s current state of change. The report reviews the components industry related to hybrid electric vehicles and its structure and many companies involved in providing these products. Competitive positions of the major players in the market and the strategic options they face are also discussed in the report.

Values presented in the forecasted tables represent the values of components as purchased from the suppliers by OEM’s companies, excluding the cost of marketing, assembling and distribution. In this report, the term “revenue” is equivalent to and is used interchangeably with purchase, demand and sales.

Report Includes:
- 55 data tables and 38 additional tables
- An overview of the global market for components of hybrid electric vehicles within the industry
- Country specific data and analysis for United States, Mexico, France, Germany, U.K., China, India, Japan, Middle East and Africa
- Key components assessments for full and mild hybrids and detailed analysis of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) related to hybrid electric vehicles
- Analyses of the components used in hybrid electric vehicles and production potential, and issues facing the sale and marketing of hybrid electric vehicles in end use markets
- Market dynamics of thirteen types of major components of hybrid systems, including engines, batteries, traction motors, generators, regenerative braking, electric power steering, electrical compressors, high-voltage wiring, electronic control units, integrated power units, converters and inverters
- Profiles of major companies in the hybrid electric vehicles market, including Aisin Seiki Co. Ltd., Blue Energy Company Ltd. (Gs Yuasa), Denso Corp, Hitachi Automotive Systems, Ltd., and Robert Bosch GmbH

Hybrid engines are becoming well established as an addition to conventional engines.Current worldwide sales figures support this trend and suggest that the hybrid market will grow strongly over the coming years.

Forecasts of actual market volumes predict sales of more than ten million hybrid electric vehicles by 2023.In the long term, hybrid vehicles will be a complementary solution to electric cars and will use new energy sources such as batteries and fuel cells.

In 2017, Toyota sold more than one million hybrid vehicles worldwide. Hybrid technology has been most successful in Japan and the U.S. but also is likely to gain popularity in Europe and China, among others.

Hybrid systems can be divided into three different forms: mild hybrid, full hybrid and plug-in hybrid.The differences are dictated by the performance of the electric motor, the size of the battery and the charging of the battery.

In a mild hybrid system, the electric motor can provide support of up to 20 kW and is primarily used to start or accelerate at low engine speeds. The full Hybrid system has a much stronger electric engine of 20 kW to 50 kW and can function at high speeds for short periods of time.

Plug-in hybrid vehicles are similar to full hybrids but differ in their battery packs. A plug-in hybrid has a much stronger engine of 60 kW to 120 kW and has larger batteries to support longer distance travel.

Unlike on-board charging for mild and full hybrids, a plug-in hybrid vehicle can be charged externally and can act as a pure electric vehicle. In full hybrids and plug-in hybrids, the electric motor can be used to drive the vehicle without the aid of a conventional IC engine for a limited distance.

Components for hybrid electric vehicles will experience continuous market growth with three factors driving worldwide market development.First, European (ACEA), Korean (KAMA), and Japanese (JAMA) automotive manufacturers are working towards emission reduction.

This is a result of voluntary commitments as well as current and future emissions laws (especially regarding CO2 emission).

Secondly, further environmental protection issues, such as those regarding particle emissions, will play an increasingly important role. Finally, the added value that hybrid vehicles can offer through improved driving dynamics without increased energy consumption is a decisive factor.

Higher fuel prices also help hybrid vehicles achieve a higher market share.Regenerative braking substantially helps reduce emissions and fuel consumption.

If the mild hybrid system is applied, consumption can be reduced by REDACTED to REDACTED.The full hybrid system combined with a modified brake leads to an even greater potential for reduction.

When brakes are applied, an intelligent steering system divides energy between the conventional brake and the hybrid engine.In this way, as much electric energy as possible is recovered and can be used to power the hybrid system.

This leads to increased driving comfort and dynamics without increased fuel consumption.

The REDACTED worldwide market for hybrid electric components in 2018 will continue to grow exponentially at a CAGR of REDACTED through 2023. This market is stable and growing due to record high fuel prices, global warming, depletion of fossil fuel stocks and calls for environment friendly cars.

From 2018 to 2023, all 13 components for hybrid electric vehicles will show significant growth.The trend for nine electrical/electronic items (batteries, motors, generators, ultracapacitors, IGBT-inverters, electronic control units (ECU’s), Integrated power units (IPU’s), high voltage wiring and electric compressors for HVAC) indicates a CAGR of REDACTED.

This is followed by four mechanical items (engine, continuously variable transmission (CVT), electric power steering and regenerative braking) with a CAGR of REDACTED.
