The automotive 48 volt battery system market is expected to surpass US$ 1.77 Bn by 2026, expanding at a CAGR of more than 65% during the forecast period. The 48 volt battery system comprises a 48-volt Lithium ion battery, AC/DC inverter, battery controller, and power distribution box. The 48 volt battery system delivers four-times the power of a 12 volt battery.
The 48 volt battery system has been widely adopted in mild hybrid vehicles and is likely to be adopted by most performance and luxury vehicles during the forecast period in order to boost the performance and efficiency of vehicles.
Emission standards are becoming increasingly stringent due to challenges posed by high polluting constituents such as carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, and sulphur dioxide. 48-volt drive vehicle drastically reduces emissions and hence, is poised to be an alternative technology.
48 volt battery systems are cost-effective hybrid solutions as compared to conventional battery electric vehicles to reduce emission. Rise in trend of vehicle electrification has necessitated the use of more powerful 48 volt battery, thus driving the 48 volt battery system market.
The 48 volt battery system enables the battery to be recharged by regenerative braking, thereby improving the battery efficiency, which in turn is a key factor driving the market. Increased demand for mild hybrid vehicles in developing countries, owing to their efficiency and cost-effectiveness, is likely to boost the market for 48 volt mild hybrid vehicles.
Demand of 48 volt hybrid system is estimated to decline after 2025, owing to high emphasis on the production of zero emission vehicles by governments across the globe. Moreover, integration of 48 volt battery system increases the cost of 48 volt system integrated battery electric vehicle, which is a key factor restraining the 48 volt battery system market. However, lower running cost and efficiency of the 48 volt battery system integrated vehicle are expected to boost the 48 volt battery system market.
Rising demand for environment-friendly vehicles is likely to boost the market for automotive 48 volt battery systems. Expanding market for fuel efficient vehicles and the low cost of hybrid vehicle are likely to boost the market for 48 volt battery system market.

Most manufacturers are likely to adopt the 48 volt battery system in their mild hybrid vehicles in order to enhance performance and efficiency of their previous version of mild hybrid vehicles. The 48 volt battery system can operate the electric supercharger, safety modules, and other electric components installed in the vehicle without any disturbance and power lag, as it has higher capability of energy recuperation and storage. Furthermore, the 48 volt battery system is backed by a 12 volt battery that supports the system as a backup unit in critical situations.
In terms of electric vehicle type, the global automotive 48 volt battery system market has been segmented into battery electric vehicle, mild hybrid electric vehicle, plug-in hybrid vehicle, and hybrid electric vehicle. The mild hybrid electric vehicle segment holds a key share of the global automotive 48 volt battery system market, as key players have developed their 48 volt battery systems for mild hybrid electric vehicles only; however for the other electric vehicle type segments, the technology is still in the development phase. Valeo SA, leading global player showcased its 48 volt all electric vehicle at the CES 2018. This indicates that the market for 48 volt battery system for zero emission vehicles is likely to expand in the near future, as the production for hybrid and internal combustion engines is likely to decline after 2025 as per the announcement of major automakers such as Volkswagen.
Key players operating in the global automotive 48 volt battery system market are A123 Systems LLC, Continental AG, Dephi technologies, East Penn Manufacturing Company, EnerSys, Furkawa Electric Co, Ltd., GS Yuasa Corporation, Hitachi, Ltd., Johnson Controls International Plc, BorgWarner Inc., Robert Bosch GmbH, Valeo SA, Vicor Corporation, and ZF Friedrichshafen AG. Delphi and Valeo SA are prominent players operating in the global automotive 48 volt battery market and have presented various prototypes with 48 volt battery systems at auto shows.
