Micro-Hybrids to Grow to 39 Million by 2017
Micro-hybrids will grow nearly eight-fold to 39 million vehicles by 2017, creating a $6.9 billion market for energy storage devices, according to a report by US-based Lux Research.
Lux, a research firm specializing in emerging technologies, also predicted that micro-hybrids, which use a small battery to provide varying degrees of efficiency-boosting features, will gain a 42 pc share of the overall light-duty vehicle market by 2017. Mild hybrids, which are less efficient, are set to rise to 1.5 million, which would account for a 1.6 pc share of the global car market in 2017.
Kevin See, a Lux research analyst, said in a press release that hybrids will “provide a cost-effective solution to fuel savings to bridge the gap to more disruptive technologies like alternative fuels, plug-in vehicles, and fuel cell vehicles.”
