According to TrendForce’s latest research, global sales of new energy vehicles (NEVs) rose by 63.6% YoY to 10.65 million units for 2022. Of this total, sales of battery-electric vehicles (BEVs) comprised 7.89 million units and registered a YoY growth rate of 68.7%.
According to TrendForce’s analysis, global car sales dipped by 0.1% YoY to 81.05 million vehicle units for 2022, showing almost no change from the 2021 figure. However, there is a chance for the global car market to return to positive growth this year. TrendForce currently projects that global car sales will increase by 3.8% YoY to 84.1 million vehicle units for 2023.
According to TrendForce’s research, the scale of the global market for military unmanned aerial vehicles (military UAVs, also known as military drones)will expand at a CAGR of 27.6% during the 2022~2025 period, from US$16.5 billion to US$34.3 billion.
TrendForce’s latest research finds that global sales of new energy vehicles (NEVs), which encompass battery-electric vehicles (BEVs), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), and fuel-cell vehicles (FCVs), rose by 70% YoY to 2.87 million units for 3Q22. Of the quarterly total, BEV sales accounted for 2.147 million units and registered a YoY growth of 75%, whereas PHEV sales accounted for 714,000 units and registered a YoY growth of 57%.
According to TrendForce research, companies are moving actively on energy conservation and carbon reduction. In the short term, the introduction of automation as an intelligent foundation will attract increasing attention from the industry and emerging market demands such as remote operations, virtual reality, and simulation operations will become more practical in the medium term. This stage of development is expected to solve the dilemma posed by the slow progress of Industry 4.0, accelerate the development of related technologies, and drive the global smart manufacturing market to reach US$620 billion by 2026.
