The global electric vehicles batteries market is expected to decline from $23.17 billion in 2019 to $22.24 billion in 2020 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -6.17%. The decline is mainly due to economic slowdown across countries owing to the COVID-19 outbreak and the measures to contain it. The market is then expected to recover and reach $35.36 billion in 2023 at CAGR of 16.71% says the report of ResearchAndMarkets.com.

This report focuses on electric vehicle batteries market which is experiencing strong growth. The report gives a guide to the electric vehicle batteries market which will be shaping and changing our lives over the next ten years and beyond, including the market’s response to the challenge of the global pandemic.

The electric vehicles batteries market consists of sales of electric vehicles batteries. Electric vehicles batteries are used to power the electronic vehicles and are rechargeable in nature. These batteries support the clean energy initiative as they don’t emit any harmful gases which causes damage to the environment.

The charging of Electric vehicle batteries using Vehicle to grid technology is expected to gain traction in EV batteries Market. Vehicle to grid technology is a Bi-directional charging system technology in which plug-in electric vehicles like battery electric vehicles (BEV), plug-in hybrids (PHEV) or hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) batteries’ can communicate with the power grid for either returning electricity to the grid, to homes during the peak times or increase their charging rate to discharge and charge the battery accordingly. The new vehicle released by the Nissan along with ENEL X the Nissan leaf in October 2017 in Japan for the model year 2018 uses Vehicle to grid Technology which can be used to power the home during times of need or push back energy to the grid that is to sell the electricity to the gird. Thus, Vehicle to grid technology is anticipated to be a major trend in the electric battery market.

The extraction of raw materials like lithium cobalt used in the electric vehicle battery has a harmful effect on the environment and governments impose restriction on mining the raw materials, hindering the growth of the market. The extraction process of one ton of lithium requires 50,000 gallons of water. Lithium mining has resulted in consumption of 65% water of the Salar de Atacama region, Chile, which has led to water shortages in Chile, South America along with severe toxic spills. As the demand upsurges, the mining activity also rises with increasing damage to the environment and will force the governments to enforce stringent regulation to curb the negative effects which would increase the production cost. Therefore, the harmful effect of electric vehicle batteries on the environment is expected to be a hindrance to the electric vehicle battery market over the coming years.
