    Overview of the global sports utility vehicle (SUV) market

    Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global sports utility vehicle (SUV) market to grow at a CAGR of more than 19% during the forecast period. At present, the SUV market is witnessing high volume sales of small and crossover SUVs owing to their affordability and low cost of ownership. In the recent years, the automotive industry has observed the launch of diverse segments of SUVs including entry level SUV, 4×2 SUVs, 4×4 SUVs, medium-sized SUVs, premium medium-sized SUVs, and luxury full-sized SUVs. Several automakers are also introducing new lines of utility vehicles such as multi-purpose vehicles (MPVs) and cross-utility vehicles (CUVs), which has led to an overall increase of the client base of the global SUV market. With the shift in the consumer requirements for an off-roader is further fueling the growth of SUVs in the global automotive market.

    One of the latest trends gaining traction in the market is the increasing demand for small and compact SUVs in emerging markets. The leading automakers are focusing on developing entry-level, small size and medium-sized SUVs to extend their customer base and increase their product portfolio. They are launching new vehicle concepts, such as crossover SUVs, which has an SUV-like stance but ride like a sedan. The rapid development and production of small and compact SUVs will be a key factor in fueling the growth of SUV market in the coming years owing to their massive sales.

    Competitive landscape and key vendors

    The global SUV market comprises several global as well as regional automakers. The competitive environment in this market is very high due to the presence of extensive SUV portfolios of players. APAC is the fastest-growing region in the SUV market and holds high growth


    Overview of the global electric vehicle battery thermal management system market

    Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global electric vehicle battery thermal management system market to grow tremendously over the forecast period, registering a CAGR of close to 38%. The EV powertrain has currently found applications in normal internal combustion engine vehicles such as 48V system, start-stop/micro hybrid system, and regenerative braking system. This has significantly surged the workload on batteries, subsequently increasing the demand for a BTMS solution that allows a wider operating temperature range, improves the lifespan of the battery, and increases the range of EVs. Also, various suppliers and OEMs are integrating power electronics components into the same TMS module such as belt starter generator, electric drive, and inverter-converter modules. Therefore, the integration and sharing of a common TMS for battery and other electric drive components such as motor and power inverters is gaining prominence. This will not only make the BTMS pack more compact and cheap but will also minimize the overall weight of the electric drivetrain.

    The launch of high-density batteries and fast chargers in the EV market have augmented the heat generation in battery packs. Such high-density batteries occupy less space and have a minimal surface area, which reduces the dissipation of heat. Subsequently, the heat is quickly generated in cells and higher amounts. PCM and gas injection heat pump (GIHP) system are the latest trends gaining traction in the market. The PCM is used to limit overheating, while the GIHP increases the battery temperature to permissible levels in cold weather conditions.

    Competitive landscape and key vendors

    This market is highly fragmented with the presence of a few key vendors like LG Chem, Bosch, Valeo

    Overview of the global motorcycle e-call market

    Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the motorcycle e-Call market to grow exponentially at a CAGR of around 212% by 2021.The key driver responsible for this growth is the rising number of motorcycle collisions causing fatalities over the past few years. The lack of protection for the rider and the vehicle is one of the primary reasons for such high fatality conversion rates. In addition to normal crashes, improper lane changing also results in severe injuries or fatalities to motorcyclists. Improper lane changes can be life threatening for motorcyclists as the driver in the other vehicle may not respond favorably to the unsafe and unindicated lane change attempts by the motorcyclists. In such a scenario, the e-Call system reduces the service response time thereby reducing the risk of conversion of accidents into fatalities.    

    One of the latest trends gaining traction in this market is the development of development of intelligent e-Call systems.  The demand for a better and efficient e-Call system is compelling the major players in the market to develop intelligent e-Call systems. Companies in the e-Call market are trying to build a system that does not depend on the user's smartphone for communicating an emergency signal to the call centre. Instead, the embedded mobile connection module and location detection triggers the rescue chain during an emergency.

    Competitive landscape and key vendors

    At present, the motorcycle e-Call market is at a nascent stage and is expected to gain traction from 2017. As the motorcycle e-Call market is comparatively new, there are only a few vendors competing for this space. The growing number of suppliers in the passenger cars segment will be crucial as they will extend their product for the motorcycle segment. This will spur the competition among the existing players during the
