Regulatory Push to Accelerate Uptake of Hybrid Electric Car

The global hybrid electric car market, driven by regulatory initiatives, is expected to witness a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 31.3% and reach $67.7 billion by 2015. Growth will be primarily driven by a range of government policies and initiatives in the form of purchase incentives, indirect benefits and mandated purchases. Broad taxation schemes which reduce automobile acquisition tax for fuel efficient car buyers encourage hybrid and electric car ownership. Other purchase benefits such as reduced parking fees, registration and/or toll fees for hybrids prove to be consumer’s surplus. The massive regulatory push will accelerate mass adoption of hybrid electric cars that would otherwise occur gradually.

Volatile Oil Prices and High Dependence on Foreign Oil will Drive the Hybrid Electric Market

Hybrid cars can deliver fuel economy improvements over conventional cars and thus, government policy, with respect to hybrid vehicles, has been to accelerate mass adoption that would otherwise occur more gradually through economies of scale.

Key economies in the world are highly dependent on foreign oil e.g. Japan imports 94% of its oil for domestic consumption, Germany imports 94% whereas US imports 59% of its domestic consumption. Transportation accounts for almost half of the world’s oil consumption and the percentage is even more in countries such as the US where the consumption is 66%. Within the transportation sector, the fastest growing category has been road transport. Relying on foreign oil could have serious implications for the security and economic growth of a country. Therefore, governments have adopted a wide range of policies to reduce oil dependency and attain energy security.
