Global Electric Utility Vehicle Market Report 2022: Growing E-Commerce and Warehousing Sectors Bolster Sector

Dublin, Nov. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Electric Utility Vehicle Market by Vehicle Type, Application, Battery Type (Lead Acid, Lithium-Ion), Drive Type (2WD, 4WD, AWD), Propulsion (Pure Electric, Hybrid Electric), Seating Capacity (1-Seater, 2-Seater, >2-Seater) Region - Forecast to 2027" report has been added to's offering.

The electric utility vehicle market is projected to grow from USD 18.9 billion in 2022 to USD 23.9 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 4.8%. Electric all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), utility task vehicles (UTVs), utility carts, shuttle carts, and industrial utility vehicles were mapped as part of this research. The growth of e-commerce and logistics industries has increased the demand for electric industrial utility vehicles (used for in-house operations) over the years. With the rapid setup of charging stations worldwide, demand for low-speed vehicles such as electric utility and shuttle carts has also increased.

Technological breakthroughs in EV batteries and other EV technologies have made it possible to have high-power engines in electric ATVs and UTVs for off-roading (comparable to their ICE counterparts). This will create a shift in demand for electric ATVs and UTVs in the coming years. The electric utility vehicle market is dominated by established players such as Polaris (US), Club Car (US), Toyota Industries Corporation (Japan), John Deere (US), and Textron (US), among others. These players have worked on providing offerings for the electric utility vehicle ecosystem. They have initiated partnerships to develop their technology and provide best-in-class products to their customers.

Electric industrial utility vehicles to be the largest segment in market during the forecast period

Electric industrial utility vehicles are used for material handling operations across various industries. Battery-operated industrial vehicles use rechargeable batteries to power respective vehicles. These vehicles have been gaining significant traction in recent years. They have the advantage of being eco-friendly. These engines generate fewer emissions, making electric industrial vehicles an ideal green machine for warehouse and industrial projects.

Li-ion batteries to lead demand for electric utility vehicles in forecast period

According to the Alternate Fuel Data Center (AFDC), most all-electric vehicles and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) use lithium-ion batteries. R&D is ongoing to reduce their relatively high cost, extend their shelf life, and address safety concerns regarding overheating. Electric utility vehicles have become popular with the increased demand for city cars, golf carts, industrial vehicles, and utility vehicles. Traditionally, these vehicles were powered by lead-acid batteries that were bulky and heavy. Lithium-ion batteries, one-third the weight of lead-acid batteries, offer nearly 100% efficiency in charge and discharge.

North America to lead electric utility vehicle market in coming years by value

North America constitutes the largest share in electric ATV, UTV, utility cart, and shuttle cart sales. The US is the primary contributor, followed by Canada and Mexico. The US has a high demand for these electric utility vehicles, owing to their use in recreational activities, agriculture, and commercial goods transport. Further, the popularity of mountain biking, trailing, off-road championships/events, and favorable terrain/weather also fuel the demand for these vehicles. The region is home to top players in the electric utility vehicles market. Canada is an emerging market and is likely to grow faster than US and Mexico in the coming years.
