Quantifying the 48-Volt Opportunity in Low-Voltage Electrification

December 31, 2016 | State of the Market Report

As automakers and their suppliers strive to make vehicles that meet stricter fuel emissions and efficiency standards, the internal combustion engine is running out of cost-effective ways of reducing fuel consumption. Low-voltage hybrids, such as 12 V and 48 V architectures, are promising technologies that can help achieve most emissions targets while costing a fraction of full hybrid systems. This report finds that annual sales for 48 V hybrids will exceed 50 million by 2030, resulting in 38 GWh of Li-ion battery demand.
