Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2035

Battery Swapping Market size is estimated to reach USD 12 Billion by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 47% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of battery swapping was over USD 2 Billion. The growth of the market can be attributed to the rising sales of electric vehicles. Battery swapping saves time for the driver to replace the depleted battery with a fully charged battery in a matter of minutes. The demand for electric passenger vehicles is rapidly increasing, the International Energy Agency projects that by 2022, over 13% of all new cars sold will be electric across the globe. Furthermore, in 2020, 35 million electric passenger cars were sold in China, followed by 1.8 million automobiles sold in Europe.

In addition to these, factors that are believed to fuel the growth of battery swapping market include the rising investment to boost the production of the electric vehicle. The Biden Administration announced a USD 2 trillion-dollar plan, "The American Jobs Plan," at the end of March 2021, that proposes a USD 174 billion investment in the US electric vehicle sector. The plan proposes proactively promoting the electric bus industry as part of this investment, assisting the replacement of 50,000 diesel transit buses with zero-emission buses, as well as supporting the effort to electrify at least 20% of the nation's 480,000+ yellow school bus fleet. On the other hand, the rising advancement in battery technology is also expected to drive market growth.

Battery Swapping Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Adoption of Electric Vehicle–EV users use battery switching to replace exhausted batteries with charged ones at swap stations. According to the International Energy Agency, with ten years of rapid development, the number of electric cars sold globally hit 10 million in 2020, representing a 43% increase over 2019.
  • Rising Production of Vehicle with Swappable Battery –Higher production of vehicles with swapping options and new innovations in swapping battery systems is likely to drive market growth. for instance, Okai launches a new swappable battery system that is useful for both ES400B and EB100, the electric scooter, and e-bikes, respectively. These are designed to be seamless and swift and come with the case to avoid the risk of theft.
  • Increasing Advancement in Battery Technologies –The technologically advanced batteries are most suitable for battery swapping systems, as they have how power capacity and is likely to power the vehicle for a longer time.  In February 2023, SoftBank collaborated with Enpower Japan to produce next-generation lithium-metal battery cells with a world-class specific energy of 439 Wh/kg and an electrolyte that is more resistant to gas production in stratospheric situations with low atmospheric pressure.
  • Growing Investment in Battery Production –Rising manufacturing of the battery is to enhance the battery swapping market. The Japanese commission proposed USD 24 billion in public and private sector initiatives. The government intends to employ this money to expand the supply chain and manufacture of batteries by hiring 30,000 suitable individuals.
  • Constraint of Space in Urban Cities–Lack of charging infrastructure is imposing a huge challenge for EV adoption. However, it is tackled by the introduction of a battery swapping system. Given the scarcity of space in urban areas for large-scale charging stations, the Finance Minister of India announced that the Union Government is trying to implement a Battery Swapping Policy and requirements for interoperability to improve efficiency in the EV ecosystem.


  • High Cost of the Infrastructure- Building a battery-swapping infrastructure can be expensive, especially if it is designed to work with a variety of different EV models. It makes it challenging for the manufacturer to justify the price of setting up the swapping stations, particularly when the adoption of the vehicle is slow.
  • No standardized regulation for battery manufacturing
  • Safety concerns associated with battery swapping

Battery Swapping Segmentation

 Application(Passenger, Commercial)

The global battery swapping market industry is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into passenger, and commercial. Out of the two application of battery swapping, the commercial segment is estimated to gain the largest market share of about ~60% in the year 2035. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the rising adoption of electric commercial vehicles. In China, electric vehicles have increased from less than 1% of light commercial vehicle sales to 10% in just two years. In August 2022, sales reached a new high of around 18,000 units. In addition to this, the adoption rate of commercial electric vehicles is higher in South Korea, with more than 20% of light commercial vehicle sales in 2022 already being electric. Furthermore, the rising demand for low-emission commuting systems and increasing government efforts to support carbon-neutral transportation for commercial vehicles, such as buses, trucks, vans, and pickups is also expected to drive the growth of the segment.

Vehicle Type (Two-Wheeler, Three-Wheeler, Four-Wheeler, Six-Wheeler)

The global battery swapping market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by vehicle type into two-wheeler, three-wheeler, four-wheeler, and six-wheeler. Amongst these four segments, the three-wheeler segment is expected to garner a significant share of around ~40% in the year 2035. the growth of the segment is attributed to the account of higher distance traveled by three-wheelers every day. On average three-wheeler vehicles travel over 100 km every day, which increases the need for a charged battery. The battery swapping technology improves the lifespan of the batteries in these vehicles. Moreover, it also reduced the downtime that occurs due to traditional ways of charging and long queues at the charging stations. Furthermore, the higher deployment of electric autos and e-rickshaws are expected to boost the segment growth. E-rickshaw retail sales in India surged by 89% in February 2023 compared to March 2022. Around 30,413 e-rickshaws were registered, up from 16,122 in the same time frame.

Battery Swapping Industry - Regional Synopsis

Europe Market Forecast

The share of battery swapping market in Europe, amongst the market in all the other regions, is projected to be the largest with a share of about ~32% by the end of 2035. The growth of the market can be attributed majorly to the lack of electric vehicle charging station infrastructure followed by slow services of the stations in the region. Six EU countries lack a single charging point for every 100 kilometers of road. 17 countries have fewer than five charging stations per 100 kilometers of road, with only five having more than ten. Moreover, charging speed is also a serious issue across the continent, as fast chargers with capacities greater than 22kW account for only a small portion of the overall stations. In reality, only one in every seven charging outlets in the EU is fast. All of the others have a capacity of 22kW or less and do not charge automobiles at an appropriate rate.

APAC Market Statistics

The Asia Pacific battery swapping market is estimated to be the second largest, registering a share of about ~28% by the end of 2035. The growth of the market can be attributed majorly to the increased adoption of electric passenger and commercial vehicles. Electric vehicles accounted for 5% of total automobile sales in India in the fiscal year 2023 ending March 31, with EV sales exceeding 1 million, up 148% year on year, driven by two- and three-wheelers. Moreover, in March 2023, EV retail sales reached a new monthly high of 140,509 units. Furthermore, China is the world leader in electric vehicle deployment. At the end of June 2019, China accounted for nearly half of all electric vehicles and 99% of all electric buses in the globe. Moreover, China also controls the global markets for low-speed electric automobiles and electric two-wheelers.

North American Market Forecast

Further, the battery swapping market in North America, amongst the market in all the other regions, is projected to hold a majority of the share by the end of 2035. The growth of the market can be attributed majorly to the growing demand for fast, convenient, and reliable charging options for electric vehicle. Many companies are putting efforts to bring innovative technologies in battery swapping technology for commercial fleets. This would help in minimizing the downtime for the vehicles, and they would not have to wait for long charging times. On the other hand, the lack of charging infrastructure in the region is also expected to drive market growth.
