The Europe EV Battery Market is expected to reach a value of $94.41 billion by 2029, at a CAGR of 45.8% during the forecast period 2022–2029. The growth of this market is mainly attributed to the increasing adoption of EVs in Europe, decreasing battery prices, and increasing localization of battery manufacturing capabilities. The growing deployment of battery-as-a-service is expected to provide significant growth opportunities for electric vehicle batteries providers in the coming years. However, potential shortfall in lithium supply is expected to hinder the growth of this market to a notable extent. Safety issues in electric vehicle batteries such as over-charging, un wanted electrochemical reactions, and ignition of combustible materials are posing significant challenges to the manufacturers of electric vehicle batteries in this market.
