DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global Electric Vehicle Power Inverter Market Size - Segmented by Electric Propulsion Type, Vehicle Type, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The global electric vehicle power inverter market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.23% during the forecast period, 2018-2023, owing to the increase in the electric vehicle sales, along with the improvements in design and functionality of inverter from manufacturers.
Power inverter is one of the key components in electric vehicles, which ideally converts battery DC power into AC power for electric motor. Considering the growing concern among the automakers to optimize energy consumption in vehicles, the inverter manufacturers have improved inverter capabilities to handle energy vice versa from both the sources (i.e battery and motor).
For instance, energy that is recouped by AC motor during regenerative braking, is put back in the form of DC into the batteries. The aforementioned two critical functions achieved by a single inverter have significantly attracted many automakers in the automotive industry. Bosch, Valeo, and Continental AG are some of the key manufacturers that have successfully developed such advanced inverters for the growing hybrid and electric vehicles market.
Growing Electric Vehicle Sales
With growing stringent emission standards across the globe, automakers are gradually shifting their production from conventional engine vehicles to hybrid and electric vehicles. In addition, governments have initiated incentives such as cut-down in vehicle tax, bonus payments, and premium for buyers of electric vehicles in the respective countries to support the electric vehicles sales growth.
Also, the increasing charging station facilities in the regions, especially in Europe, North America, and Asia-Pacific, and particularly in Japan and China, have further supported the growing electric vehicle sales. In 2017, the electric vehicles sales across the world have seen a positive growth with an increase by about 52% compared to 2016.
Advancement in Inverter's Design and Functionality
Vehicle inverter manufacturers are consistently working to improve their products in terms of efficiency and size. The trend of combining inverter with motor or converter has been significantly gaining attention among the automakers. For instance, motor with an integrated inverter or single power module, which includes inverter and DC-DC converter functionalities, has resulted in improved efficiency with a reduced space and weight occupancy in the vehicle.
Bosch INVCON 2.3 (inverter + DC-DC converter) weighs around less than 7 kg, where the inverter alone weighs 2.26 kg. Delphi Technologies has launched its first combined inverter and DC/DC converter in the Chinese market in May 2018. The growing demand for advanced inverters is gradually raising the competition level among the manufactures in the market.
