Driving India’s Road Transport Electrification: Challenges, Opportunities and the Road Ahead
EVs are making steady progress in India supported by favorable policies, increasing consumer interest, and rising fuel costs. Investor interest is also rising with India-headquartered electric mobility firms receiving $1.2 billion in funding in 2022, nearly double the amount in 2021. What are the key near-term challenges that could threaten this momentum? With the FAME scheme set to phase out in a few months, how will the policy gap impact India’s pace of electrification? Further, as countries across the globe are trying to reconfigure supply chains in their favor, can India position itself as a globally competitive manufacturing hub?

A Fire Chat......India becoming a Battery Manufacturer from being a Market earlier.

Ease of Doing Business in the Indian battery segment has opened room for innovations and advancements. Indian players have picked up their trajectory to enter into manufacturing with Battery Production Linked Incentives (PLI), Advance Chemistry Cell (ACC) with various technologies to meet global and Asia Pacific market demands.

The global market is driven by the increasing demand for lithium-ion batteries in various end users, such as portable electronics, electric vehicles, military, aerospace, and energy storage systems. The market size, value, and CAGR vary depending on the data's source, year, and region, but generally show a positive and high trend. The market is also segmented by different types of lithium-ion batteries, such as cobalt oxide, nickel cobalt manganese oxide, and others with different characteristics and applications. The largest regional segment of the market is Asia Pacific led by China followed by Europe. Now, the same is being envisioned by India.
