In 2026 the Power Electronics Market for Electric Vehicles will have Reached $305 Billion

This report of over 190 very detailed slide format pages is replete with new forecasts, analysis and infographics seeing the roadmap and financial projections to a future where land, water and airborne vehicles will be electric. The emphasis is land vehicles. It fully explains why power electronics is becoming more important in the performance and cost of an electric vehicle, hybrid or pure electric.

Reasons given include expected tough 2025 and 2030 regulations making most conventional powertrains illegal and the ongoing quest for performance improvement including better life and reliability. The report explains how power electronics may be part of the powertrain traction system, loosely related to it or not related and what that means, given in many new graphical summaries.

The key parts of recent presentations by the key players are assessed in this work, which was researched in 2016 by PhD level analysts travelling worldwide. Interviews, databases, web searches and conference attendance were extensively used. Old information is useless in this now fast moving field.

The report starts with a comprehensive Executive Summary and Conclusions which includes a close READ MORE >
