Global 48 Volt Battery System Market to Reach US $27 Billion by 2031



Transparency Market Research

Market Snapshot

The global 48-volt battery system market is projected to flourish at a CAGR of 27.8% from 2022 to 2031. As per the report published by TMR, a valuation of US $27 billion is anticipated for the market in 2031. As of 2023, the market for 48-volt battery systems is expected to close at US$ 3.7 billion.

The increasingly stringent emission standards imposed by governments and regulatory bodies worldwide have forced automakers to reduce carbon emissions from their vehicles driving the demand for 48-volt battery systems as it help improve fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions in internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles.

Consumers are increasingly seeking fuel-efficient vehicles, making these systems attractive, and driving the demand for the 48-volt battery system market. 48-volt mild hybrid systems significantly improve fuel efficiency by providing additional power for acceleration and enabling engine-off coasting and start-stop functionality

48-volt battery systems help run internal combustion engines more efficiently and provide greater fuel economy and reduced emissions at a relatively low cost. This is augmenting the global 48-volt battery system market during the forecast period.
