NEW YORK, Sept. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Vehicles becoming electric will create a $300 billion plus power electronics market in 2026. Researched worldwide in 2016, with infographics, ten year roadmaps and projections, this report details how power electronics grows because the number of motor controllers per vehicle is increasing and steering, suspension and other previously mechanical, pneumatic and hydraulic parts become power electronics. In addition, multiple forms of recuperation and energy harvesting will create electricity in vehicles.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 IDTechEx analysts travelling worldwide. Interviews, IDTechEx 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 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 printed 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.
