Industrial Electric Vehicle Market Dynamics
Development in the secondary sector
Rising industrialization and expansion of the construction industry coupled with revised emission regulations are anticipated to propel the industrial electric vehicle market during the forecast period.
Stringent vehicle emission norms by governing bodies and rising fuel prices
Emission from industrial vehicles is considerably high, which is harmful to the environment and human health. This has prompted regulatory bodies across the globe to encourage auto manufacturers and original equipment manufacturers to develop environment-friendly vehicles and machinery. This is likely to boost the industrial electric vehicle market. Industrial electric vehicles are considerably safe and generate less noise. Moreover, rising fuel cost and stringent emission policies along with consumer awareness about transportation pollution are projected to drive the industrial electric vehicle market in the near future.
Demand for zero-emission vehicles
In terms of type, pure electric vehicle was a highly attractive segment of the industrial electric vehicle market, as it is a zero-emission vehicle and it is entirely powered by an electric or traction motor. The segment is likely to expand at a significant growth rate during the forecast period.
Application segment growth of the market
Manufacturing and construction segments are projected to expand significantly during the forecast period, primarily due to the higher rate of adoption of electric mobility in these industries. The four-wheeler and above segment accounts for a prominent share of the global industrial electric vehicle market due to the extensive usage of these vehicles in production, logistics, warehousing, and distribution sectors.
