A recent study conducted by the strategic consulting and market research firm, BlueWeave Consulting, revealed that the Japan electric vehicle market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 16.2% during the forecast period of 2022-2028. Japan’s electric vehicle market is flourishing at a high rate owing to the high concentration of EV manufacturers in this region, such as Mitsubishi, Suzuki Motor, Cocoa Motors, etc. These manufacturers are significantly launching new electric vehicles with advanced features. Additionally, they are focusing on improving battery efficiency, which is anticipated to boost the adoption of EVs in Japan during the forecast period. However, the lack of sufficient charging stations may act as a huge restraining factor for the growth of Japan electric vehicle market.

Advancements in Efficiency of EV Battery is Driving Japan Electric Vehicle Market

Compared to conventional vehicles, an electric vehicle converts over 77% of electric energy from the grid into power. On the other hand, conventional fuel vehicles can convert only 12%-30% of the energy. Furthermore, battery manufacturers in Japan are also focusing on improving the energy efficiency of the EV batteries to make them suitable for longer journeys. Moreover, they are heavily investing in R&D activities to identify new metals and raw materials for EV batteries. These factors are anticipated to drive the Japan electric vehicle market during the forecast period.

Establishment of New Charging Points Presenting Lucrative Growth Opportunities to the Market

In Japan, the government is heavily investing in promoting the use of electric vehicles on the roads. To this end, it is establishing new charging stations.  According to a report by Nissan, the electric charging points in Japan in 2016 outnumbered the petrol pumps. While the number of charging stations declined in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, EV manufacturers and the Japanese government are working on increasing the number of charging points. It is anticipated that construction of new charging points will boost the growth of the Japan electric vehicle market during the forecast period.
