Increasing global demand for EVs due to rapid adoption of zero-emission technologies

 The global demand for electric vehicles (EVs) has been increasing rapidly due to the rise in greenhouse emissions and government measures to minimize oil imports. The carbon emissions of an EV are around 17-30% lower than those of a petrol or diesel vehicle, which has led to an increase in global EV sales and fast acceptance of EVs. Global EV sales increased by 108% in 2021 to 6.75 million units, with battery electric vehicles (BEVs) accounting for 71% of those sales. Cumulative global sales of EVs reached 18.6 million by the end of 2021, a 58% increase from the end of 2020, and the global average EV share of new vehicle sales achieved an all-time high of 8.3% in 2021, up from 4.2% in 2020.The United States saw a significant increase in EV sales, with sales of new light-duty plug-in electric vehicles nearly doubling from 308,000 in 2020 to 608,000 in 2021.The global EV market is expected to continue to grow in the coming years, with forecasts projecting further increases in EV sales.

Market Opportunities 

Increasing Demand for Advanced Ceramics from Automotive and Medical Industries to Boost Growth

The vital request growth will be boosted by the increasing demand for the product from the automobile and medical industries. Due to their thermal and electrical components, battery factors in automobile assistance exhibit substantial product consumption. Zirconia ceramics are often used in medical precision. Its valuable natural, physical, and artistic portions are what fuel the expansion.  As a result, it will demonstrate the rising need for implant abutments, synthetic bones, and end osseous implants. As a result, the growing demand for the product during the evaluation time will be fueled by the diligence.

Market Restraints

High Prices of Advanced Ceramics to Hamper Growth

Comparing the cost of this pottery to essence and amalgamation, it is expensive. Their valuable product system, which comprises raw material processing, forming process, sintering, diamond grinding, and inspection, is what causes the high pricing. This approach necessitates several ministries and pricey stones, raising the expense of the goods and pushing up the final cost of the item. This limits the product demand in sectors like electronics, automobiles, and chemicals and is likely to impede the rise of demand throughout the projected timeline.
