FARMINGTON, Conn., Sept. 10, 2012 — /PRNewswire-iReach/ — From the customer perspective, “Stronger batteries, lightweight carbon-fiber components and mass production will help electric cars replace the gasoline engine by 2050,” according to a recent Seattle Times article. From the internal business perspective, organizations active in the electric vehicle value chain need to explain how to create success. Global Information Inc. provides the information businesses participating in the electric vehicle (EV) industry require in terms of analyses of finances and positioning because they contain the lessons of success and failure. Four new market research reports assess the profitability and operational performance of electric vehicles and their components.


Electric Vehicle Industry Profitability 2012 – Where, Why, What Next

Contrary to popular understanding, people have been making money out of electric vehicles and their key components for over 110 years. Today, there remain a large number of companies profitably participating in the business. Unfortunately there also continues to be frequent bankruptcies in the electric vehicle business. The difference between a successful electric automobile venture and a bankrupt one lies in market positioning, making what will be wanted in the years to come while avoiding areas of oversupply. The leaders in pure electric indoor forklifts, for example, make good money following a shakeout 15 years ago, and now that outdoor hybrid forklifts are a new growth sector others are seeking to lead there, rather than focusing on the saturated market. Profit V curves, technological roadmaps, experience curves, the Boston matrix and other tools give clarity about what comes next.

Electric Vehicle Traction Batteries 2012-2022

With vehicle traction batteries it is important to look at the whole picture and this report does it for the first time. The rapidly growing market for traction batteries will exceed $55 billion in only ten years. However that spans battery sets up to $500,000 each with great sophistication needed for military, marine and solar aircraft use. Huge numbers of low cost batteries are being used for e-bikes but even here several new technologies are appearing. The largest replacement market is for e-bikes today and the value market for replacement batteries will not be dominated by cars when these batteries last the life of the car – something likely to happen within ten years.

In this report, researched in 2010 and 2012 and frequently updated, IDTechEx analyzes the successes, the needs, the statistics and the market potential for traction batteries for all the major applications.

Energy Harvesting and Storage for Electronic Devices 2012-2022

In 2012, IDTechEx research finds that the market for energy harvesters will be more than $700 million, with several hundred developers involved throughout the value chain. Energy harvesting is the process by which ambient energy is captured and converted into electricity for small autonomous devices, such as satellites, laptops and nodes in sensor networks making them self-sufficient. Although energy harvesting applications reach from vehicles to the smart grid, the majority of the value this year is in consumer electronic applications, where energy harvesters have been used for some time.

How do these things work? Which technologies have the most potential now and in the future? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? Which countries have the most active programs and why? What are the leading universities, developers, manufacturers and other players up to? What alliances exist? What are the timelines for success? All these questions and more are answered in this report.

Electrochemical Double Layer Capacitors: Supercapacitors 2013-2023

55% of the manufacturers and intending manufacturers of supercapacitors/supercabatteries (EDLC, AEDLC) are in East Asia, 28% are in North America but Europe is fast asleep at only 7%. Yet, being used for an increasing number of purposes in electric vehicles, mobile phones, energy harvesting, renewable energy and other products of the future, the market for supercapacitors will soar to over $11 billion in ten years, with considerable upside potential.

The bottom line is that almost everywhere you see next generation electronic and power technology you see supercapacitors and supercabatteries being fitted or planned because of superior performance, cost-over-life and fit-and-forget.
