Increasing focus on electric vehicles bring more opportunities for spare part manufacturers, and the ongoing technological developments in power inverters of electric vehicles are expected to fuel the growth of the market studied over the forecast period.


Lack of Sufficient Infrastructure for Electric Vehicles

For electric car adoption, a robust infrastructure for charging EVs is required. Despite their advantages from an environmental and financial standpoint, electric vehicles have not yet become mainstream. A lack of charging outlets constrains the electric vehicle business. For instance, a survey by Grant Thornton-Bharat and the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) predicted that by June 2021, India would need 4 lakh public charging stations to support the estimated 2 million electric vehicles that would be driving in Indian roads by that year. India only has 1,028 public electric vehicle charging points as of December 2021.

In addition, a report from the International Energy Agency (IEA) in 2021 stated that the number of electric vehicles worldwide reached 10 million in 2020, up 43% from 2019 and acquiring a 1% market share.
