Strategic Analysis of the Global 48v Power-net Market – Key Vendors are Audi, Bosch & Continental – Research and Markets


Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Strategic Analysis of the Global 48v Power-net Market” report to their offering.

OEMs are looking for various means to reduce the CO2 emissions required for 2020 and 2025. The 12v power-net can no longer sustain the electrical load that present day top-end vehicles use.

Any new addition to the electrical load will require an increase of the power-net capacity. Therefore, OEMs are considering migrating to a 48v power-net, thereby using 2 voltages.

The 48v power-net also manages to reduce vehicle weight, thereby reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Heavy-duty functions are expected to port to the new 48v power-net.

The study will answer several key questions:

  • Which of present day chassis, powertrain, and comfort applications would be incorporated as first-wave and second-wave technologies for 48v?
  • Is 48v a better cost-efficient system compared to PHEVs to realize 2020 and 2025 emission and fuel consumption norms?
  • Despite being the largest EV market, will China be a major region in Asia for the 48v system because of stringent fuel consumption norms for 2020 and beyond?
  • Will 48v see any takers from the American, Japanese, or Korean OEMs that themselves need to adhere to the upcoming stringent emission and fuel consumption norms in different parts of the world?
  • Which Tier-I suppliers have a better product portfolio to enable migration to 48v and the interest levels from Tier-II suppliers?
