Recent Job Scenario in EV Industry
The International Energy Agency forecasts Electric vehicles will grow from 3 million to 125 million by 2030. According to Frost & Sullivan’s recently released “Global Electric Vehicle Market Outlook 2018” global sales are braced to rise from 1.2 million in 2017 to 1.6 million in 2018 and further upwards to an estimated 2 million in 2019. Let’s have a look at statistics country wise.
Norway tops the market share and continues to be the world’s most advanced market of electric cars with respect to sales share followed by Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Germany and Japan.
Coming back to our motherland, our government is taking great initiatives to promote electric vehicles to achieve its ambitious target to bring an all-electric vehicle by 2030.The first state to roll out its Electric Vehicle and Energy Storage Policy is Karnataka. Similarly, the Telangana Government prepared a draft policy on electric vehicles. According to a report by the Society of Manufacturers of Electric Vehicles (SMEV), Gujarat, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Maharashtra bashed the highest number of EV sales during FY 2016-17.
Together with favourable Government initiatives, entry of international companies like Ford, Honda, Toyota, Volvo, Suzuki and Hyundai and start-ups, endeavours are been taken to bring a mega revolution in the automobile industry of the country. Our native automotive giants, Mahindra and Mahindra and Tata Motors are currently leading the electric vehicle revolution in the country. They have currently acquired the first global tender for supplying 10,000 electric cars to government-run EIL. Essel Infraprojects Ltd (EIL) is the infrastructure arm of the Essel group, 90-year-old diversified conglomerate led by Shri Subhash Chandra. It has planned to invest Rs 1750 crore in a phased manner to setup charging station and battery swapping stations in 20 cities of Uttar Pradesh. The foundation stone laying ceremony was laid by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. EIL’s electric vehicle launch was among different industrial projects announced in the state capital.
There are many core challenges that need to be addressed like battery technology, charging infrastructure, time taken for charging, different specification and requirements have failed to match the superfast pace set by EVs. This calls for expertise in assembly, design, battery chemistry, electric motors and advanced computer systems. Another major challenge faced by e-mobility is the strain in demand-supply chain. Only about 1,000 engineers are currently working on electric vehicles in India, according to TeamLease research whereas “Over the next two years, demand is expected to rise three-fold to 15,000 but the supply is expected to be 10,000,” said by cofounder, TeamLease. Thus hiring talent or say better “building talent” becomes need of the hour for approaching EV revolution.
