This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Automotive Battery Thermal Management System Market is accounted for $2,301.83 million in 2021 and is expected to reach $6,704.31 million by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 16.5% during the forecast period. The execution or yield of batteries differs as per the encompassing temperature, with the end goal that their execution is influenced by over the top temperature; in this way, keeping up a satisfactory temperature for the batteries is fundamental so as to accomplish proper functioning and proficiency of the battery cells. Hybrid electric vehicles have diverse dimensions of mixing, for example, unique dimensions of fuel blend, and dependent on the mixing level and limit of electric vehicles, number of cells, battery size, and type shifts, appropriately. Along these lines, battery warm administration frameworks are commonly coordinated with battery cells. The battery thermal management framework keeps up the battery temperature, at which the battery yield is ideal.

Market Dynamics:


Growing integration of automotive battery thermal management system

The demand for electric vehicles and alternative fuel vehicles has increased due to stringent CO2 emission norms by the government. Such steps from various governments are also encouraging automakers to move toward the new trend of electric vehicles. The system manufacturers and developers now have started integrating the electronic components in the same module of thermal management, such as integrating power electronics components into the same module such as Belt Starter Generator (BSG), electric drive (motor, generator, inverter), and inverter-converter modules. Such integration of the technologies with shared TMS for battery and other applications has enabled the developers and OEMs to achieve increased efficiency at low cost and vehicle weight reduction. Traditionally, the auto manufacturers and suppliers were using a battery thermal management system to manage the battery temperature, but technological advancements and need to decrease the vehicle weight compelled the OEMs and suppliers to integrate the battery thermal management system with other electric thermal management systems of the vehicle. This approach or module has enabled the developers and OEMs to achieve the utmost efficiency at a low cost.


Complications with design

The problems faced while manufacturing thermal components are associated with the design of optimal flow channels, selection of coolant, and complexity of the model and flow. Lowering power requirements without compromising the performance and reliability of systems is a major problem faced while designing thermal components. Issues associated with thermal components include designing cooling systems, optimizing the design to reduce power consumption, weight, and cost, and verifying the thermal design of thermal components. A sudden increase in temperature due to high power may be hazardous, as it could lead to internal short circuits, physical damage, and fire or explosion. Cells in a battery pack are close to one another, and hence overheating of one cell impacts surrounding cells as well. This phenomenon is referred to as thermal runaway propagation, which, in the worst case, causes fire or explosions. Power dissipation becomes a critical factor for system design with increasing clock rate and transistor count of microprocessors. The increasing clock rate and transistor count lead to complexities in designing thermal components.


Growing inclination for new technologies

In terms of enhancement, nanotechnology holds the potential to create next-generation lithium-ion batteries that offer better durability, safety, and improved performance at an affordable cost. Nanotechnology can be used to form electrodes of suitable materials that would have a high surface area, permitting the charge to flow more freely. This would increase the capacity of the battery to hold power and to charge quickly. The overall battery life can be increased by using nanomaterials to separate the electrolyte in the battery from the electrodes. This can prevent low-level discharge, increase the shelf life of the battery, and reduce any chances of a short circuit. The use of such new technologies in lithium-ion batteries can increase its value in terms of performance.


High capital investments

The automotive battery thermal management system needs to be integrated during the conceptualization phase or 1–2 years later to ensure that the vehicle is equipped with the required functionality systems. Also, the production development cycle of the automotive system is close to 2 years or more than 2 years. The automotive systems are equipped with many safety and security features of the vehicle which makes the product development more stimulating and time taking. Whereas, these battery thermal management systems are very close to consumer electronics where product development cycle is less than 1 year, hence this creates a disconnect between both the industries. Also, customers expect similar features in a car too which is very difficult to provide by an automotive OEM.

The passenger vehicle segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The passenger vehicle segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth. The passenger vehicle segment is estimated to be the largest of the automotive battery thermal management system market during the forecast period. The rising demand for alternative fuel vehicles in the segment and supportive government policies and subsidies are expected to drive the demand for the automotive battery thermal management system market in this segment.

The battery electric vehicle (BEV) segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The battery electric vehicle (BEV) segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period.  Growing vehicle range and improving charging infrastructure have further resulted in fueling the demand for BEV sales. The growth of the BEV segment is projected to continue during the forecast period because of decreasing battery prices, increasing consumer awareness toward the green environment, and decreasing charging time. It is projected that the invention of super-fast chargers would enable electric vehicles to get fully charged in less than an hour. Nissan Leaf and Tesla Model S were the most successful and highest selling models among BEVs.

Region with highest share:

Europe is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period. Europe holds the largest position in the market owing to the increasing demand for electric vehicles in countries such as Norway and Netherlands. The European government is strictly following & updating the emission standards norms and plans to impose them. Moreover, Germany ranks first in this regional market as major sales of all typed vehicles and higher adoption rate of technologically advanced vehicles in the country.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period. The possibility of reducing carbon emissions by electrifying transportation has caught the attention of local and national government officials across the Asia Pacific.  The Asia Pacific region is the largest market for automobiles and comprises emerging economies such as China and India, along with developed nations such as Japan and South Korea. In recent years, the region has emerged as a hub for automobile production. The governments have also provided various incentives in the form of subsidies and tax exemptions to increase the adoption of electric vehicles in many countries.
