Rising Fuel Cost

Rising fuel cost in Philippines in 2022 due to supply constraints and higher foreign exchange rate amidst global tension between Russia and Ukraine, contributes in consumers shifting preference towards availing electric vehicles compared to the conventional ICE vehicles. As Philippines is heavily dependent on imports for its as oil/fuel consumption, higher foreign exchange rate results in increasing fuel costs making it financially taxing for consumers to avail fuel operated vehicles.

Competitive Landscape in Philippines Light Electric Vehicle Industry

The market is concentrated among few major international players for the four-wheeler LEV segment such as Nissan, BYD, and Toyota among others. Lack of domestic manufacturers makes the market moderately competitive. For the two and three-wheeler LEV segment, the market is highly competitive with both domestic and international manufacturers competing in the ecosystem. Some of the major players operating in the two/three wheeler LEV ecosystem includes NWOW, Tojo Motors and Bemac among others. Players in the LEV market compete on the basis of price, type of battery used in EV, battery capacity, charging time, range in distance, charging cost. LEV brands and manufacturers also faces high threat of substitution due to the huge upfront cost for EVs, making it suitable for consumers to opt for lesser priced ICE vehicles.

Economic Growth in Philippines

Steady economic growth in Philippines served as a catalyst for the increasing adoption of EVs in the country. Even though, the share of electric passenger cars was comparatively lower than that of e-tricycles and electric two wheelers in 2022 but in coming years, the demand for EV will witness massive surge supported by strong economic growth coupled with increasing domestic investment and rising per capita disposable income.

Low Maintenance Cost

The internal combustion engine (ICE)-powered vehicles and motorcycles feature a complicated setup including spark plugs, air & oil filters, timing belts and gearbox among others. Electric vehicles, on the other hand, feature a simple internal layout with fluids, tires, and brake pads. Thus, calling for a lower maintenance cost compared to ICE vehicles, which was preferred by the consumers especially e-scooter users. Coupled with that, running cost of a BEV on an average is 10 times cheaper since utilization of fuel is negligible over a vehicle’s lifespan.

Increasing Awareness on Environmental Impacts

In 2021, the concentration of fine particulate matter (PM 2.5) causing air pollution, reached 58.4 µg/m3 in the megacity of Metro Manila during dry season, which is 11 times more than the prescribed limit set by WHO. The surging threat to the environment positively contributed in enhancing the demand of EVs due to consumers increasing consciousness towards limiting carbon emissions and reducing air pollution. The infrastructural shift towards adoption of EVs will assist the country in its aim for reducing greenhouse emissions by 75% by 2030.

The publication titled Philippines Light Electric Vehicle Market Outlook to 2027: Driven by government initiative to develop the EV industry and increasing consumer preference towards limiting carbon footprint” provides a comprehensive analysis of the light electric vehicle industry by analyzing historical statistics and corresponding developments in the LEV market. The report covers various aspects including market size of two/three-wheeler, four-wheeler and consolidated LEV industry on the basis of revenue, average price & volume. Further the report covers insights on LEV market overview, ecosystem, operating model, different stages in LEV manufacturing process, value chain analysis, GDP per capita, urbanization rate, trends and developments, Porter 5 Forces Analysis, government initiatives and regulations, growth drivers, impact of COVID-19, risk factors governing the future outlook of industry, consumer demographics & preferences, and demand analysis on the basis of TAM, SAM and SOM. Insights on competitive landscape of two/three wheeler and four-wheeler brands have been covered in the report along with cross comparison between major players operating in the ecosystem on the basis of operational and financial parameters such as year of establishment, technology type, model, price, number of electric vehicles sold, market share on the basis of volume, EV range, battery type, battery capacity, company overview, geographical presence, dealerships, recent developments, business model, strengths, pain points, USP, collaboration, revenue streams, product portfolio, average price, operations, recent developments, revenue, sales, operating profit and global sales figure.
