While the conventional micro- hybrid technology relies on just a simple stop-start system for the engine, second generation micro-hybrid systems incorporate features such as energy regeneration and harvesting. The next generation of micro-hybrid systems has started emerging, where advanced concepts such as shutting off the engine during coasting (not just when stopped), and useful features like keeping the air conditioning running when the engine is not functioning as well as some mild levels of boost from the batteries during acceleration, are incorporated.
The market for micro-hybrid vehicles is expected to grow at a CAGR of 16% during the forecast period. Micro- hybridization has become one of the cheapest and easiest solutions for fuel-efficient passenger cars. The premium to be paid for a micro-hybrid purchase when compared to a conventional diesel engine is also quite nominal for each vehicle. A micro-hybrid vehicle costs less to operate than a conventional car, as fuel expenditure is 5-15% less than a traditional ICE vehicle. The development of high-performance lithium-ion batteries is expected to help drive the micro-hybrid vehicle market significantly in the forecast period. These vehicles generally have small batteries and motors that do not require any technical modification or requirements for battery manufacturing other than what is required for hybrid and electric vehicles.
European countries are expected to dominate the global micro-hybrid market in terms of shipment of unit sales, with a share of 45% by the end of 2020.The concerns to protect the environment and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, especially carbon dioxide, will play a major role in driving the growth of the market. The fall in the prices of fuel has had an adverse impact on the choice of fuel efficient vehicles, thereby posing some challenge to the micro-hybrid vehicle market.
The market is segmented by capacity, vehicle type, battery type and geography.
