EV Fluids for commercial vehicles

Electric Commercial Vehicles Fluids: Market Analysis and Opportunities

Base Year: 2021
To be Published Q4 2021
Regional Coverage: China, Europe, Japan, United States

Accelerating decarbonization efforts in the commercial vehicle (CV) sector are promoting the deployment of low- and zero-emission technologies. Electrification remains a viable option for CV applications. Electrification of commercial vehicles will drive technological innovation, as performance requirements for the various fluids consumed in electric CVs are different from those used in conventional Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles. EVs will herald a new lubricants market niche focused on the lubrication needs of EVs specifically used in commercial applications.

Scope

  • Assessment of the current and projected electric CV fleet in terms of overall size, technologies used, and key OEMs
  • Analysis of fluid requirements for different EV technologies
  • Assessment of the impact of various EV technologies such as e-drivelines and e-axles on EV fluid specifications and demand
  • Electric CV maintenance and fluid change practices and the resulting demand for electric CV fluids (including fuel cell vehicles)
  • Analysis of evolving dependencies among the various stakeholders in the electric commercial vehicle supply chain
  • Identification of market opportunities and challenges
