India and China’s growing EV market demand drives up EV power module demand in the APAC region


Back in the year 2022, the overall value of the EV power module market was around US$ 1,570.6 million. For this year 2023, FMI predicts the value to be around US$ 1,955.4 million. According to FMI’s study of the global EV power module demand, the industries are anticipated to expand at a healthy CAGR of 24% on average. Consequently, by the end of the forecast period, the EV module market share’s entire worth might reach up to US$ 16,805.4 million.

As a result, the widespread adoption of EVs is anticipated to boost industries supplying components for electric vehicles on a worldwide scale. Moreover, rising public spending on the construction of a global charging network is also anticipated to encourage the selling of EV power modules.

Key Takeaways

·         The United States is the leading region for the global EV power module market and contributes 10.1% of the revenue generated globally.

·         In Asia Pacific, China is projected to grow remarkably in sales of EV power modules produced in the country. It is further projected to witness an annual growth rate of 21.3% during the forecast years

·         Contrastingly, India is predicted to register a higher CAGR of 25.4% in demand for EV power modules through 2033.
