BOSTON, June 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
In 2027 the power electronics market for electric vehicles will have reached $300 billion according to the new report from IDTechEx Research, Power Electronics for Electric Vehicles 2017-2027 .
This report 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.
Recent presentations by the key players are assessed in this work, which was researched in 2016/2017 by PhD level IDTechEx analysts travelling worldwide. Interviews, IDTechEx databases, web searches and conference attendance were extensively used. Detailed technology roadmaps, supplier comparisons and interviews provide a uniquely comprehensive picture.
The report 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.
Power Electronics for Electric Vehicles 2017-2027 includes a close look at all the key issues. Ten year forecasts for power electronics are broken down into motor controllers, recuperation, electricity import, electricity export, BMS with boost converters, climate control and then other, with a full explanation of the many things in these categories. The total power electronics market in billions of dollars and as percentage of the electric vehicle market is projected, backed up by ten year forecasts by number of 46 categories of electric vehicle land, water and air.
Power electronics for 48V mild hybrid and beyond are included in the report, carefully explaining the rapidly increasing complexity of power circuits and peripherals for these and successor powertrains.
Many examples of power electronics are explained in the context of powertrain options, future successes and expected failures. Network integration, powertrain options, voltage trends and structural electronics potential are detailed. As outlined in the report, new materials and components for power electronics are key to the future, including SiC and GaN power semiconductors and new harvesting chemistries.
