Global Mild Hybrid Vehicle Market Segmentation:

The global mild hybrid vehicle market report is segmented into capacity type and vehicle type

Based on the capacity type, the market is segmented into less than 48V and 48 and above. Out of which the segment with less than 48V is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period as vehicles with less than 48V are being launched by the automobile manufacturers in several countries across the globe. For instances, in October 2021, the European automaker Renault launched its new petrol engine. The 1.3- liter turbo petrol engine is equipped of advanced technology as the engine is designed with the 12V mild-hybrid technology.

The 48V and above segment is also expected to witness robust growth in near future, as 48V battery was introduced due to the rising need for power supply to electronic devices, such as compressor, heater, power steering, and electric pumps. Many automakers started approving 48V mild-hybrid as standard features in their new automotive models over the past three years. For instance, in December 2021, the Cadillac division of General Motors Corporation Limited (SAIC-GM) granted the new XT4 compact crossover SUV.

Based on vehicle type, the market is segmented into commercial vehicle and passenger car. Out of which the passenger car segment is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period as demand for mild-hybrid passenger cars is rising. In the passenger cars, over the past few years, the mild-hybrid technology has gained momentum due to the increasing number of new product launch. For example, on 3rd March 2021, the renowned automobile manufacturer Hyundai revealed its all-new crossover SUV Bayon.

The commercial vehicles segment is also projected to witness significant growth in the near future as the mild-hybrid technology has been vastly identified in light commercial vehicles that comprise pick-up trucks and vans. As the demand for light commercial vehicles is increasing globally, the major OEMs, such as RAM, Daimler, etc. are involved in the production and approval of the new products with new technologies. For instances, in May 2021, the American commercial vehicle manufacturer Ram has launched its pick-up truck 1500 DT in Australia.

Global Mild Hybrid Vehicle Market: Key Developments
