Companies are working aggressively to improve vehicle efficiency and reduce the cost of core components

A new report from analyzes how vehicle electrification is driving investment in all aspects of electric motor technologies and control electronics, analyzing trends and providing recommendations for industry players.

Over the last several years, electric vehicles have entered the mainstream, and market share is expected to grow significantly in the coming decades. Today’s automakers and suppliers are dramatically expanding their electrified offerings to achieve gains in fuel efficiency, reductions in emissions, and increases in available electrical power. : According to a new report from , for market players looking to establish industry leadership, the traction motor is now the focus.

“Automotive manufacturers and suppliers are finally making a concerted shift from a focus on internal combustion engines to partially and fully electrified alternatives,” says Sam Abuelsamid, senior research analyst with Navigant Research. “In their effort to retain profitability while ensuring these new propulsion systems remain affordable to consumers, these companies are working aggressively to improve the efficiency and reduce the cost of some of the core components, particularly the traction motors and power electronics.”

According to the report, numerous manufacturers announced plans in 2017 to offer at least 48 V mild-hybrid powertrains across all vehicles in their lineup. In many cases, manufacturers have reported they will make those offerings standard equipment. All of these vehicles will require electric drive motors, generators, and power electronics for alternating current-direct current (AC-DC) conversion as well as DC voltage conversion to support multiple vehicle subsystems.

The report, , examines how vehicle electrification is driving investment in all aspects of electric motor technologies and control electronics. The study analyzes the historical, current, and future trends related to electrification solutions for vehicles and discusses the key components of an electric drive system. It also provides detailed and actionable recommendations for industry players on some of the major areas to focus on to help successfully grow the market for these crucial electrification components.

Technology can enable lower costs and better patient care as healthcare increasingly moves from the hospital to the home

A new report from examines the emerging digital health industry, with a focus on how the Internet of Things (IoT) is disrupting healthcare and moving it to the home.

As global demand and cost for healthcare continue to rise, providers and patients are looking to technology for cost-effective solutions. A variety of smart home technologies that leverage the IoT are helping to lower costs and improve patient care by engaging consumers with real-time information through web portals and mobile apps, as well as other innovations. : According to a new report from , opportunities for stakeholders are increasing as healthcare becomes an emerging value proposition for the smart home.

“The nexus of IoT and health ultimately puts power in the hands of consumers and enables self care,” says Paige Leuschner, research analyst with Navigant Research. “This has the potential to revolutionize the healthcare industry and contribute to the emergence of healthcare as a value proposition for the smart home, creating opportunities for a range of stakeholders to capitalize on.”

According to the report, now is the time for industry players—from technology startups to service providers to large tech incumbents—to find innovative ways to engage consumers, explore new business models, and create new revenue streams in the home.

The report, , discusses how the convergence of smart home value propositions provides new opportunities for stakeholders to introduce innovative digital health solutions to bring efficiencies and enhancements to a traditional market. It also provides recommendations on how players in the smart home and health industries can address the smart home lifestyle and seize digital health market opportunity while there is momentum.

Recent consumer interest is centered around performance enhancements to two of Fiat Chrysler’s high-volume nameplates

A new report from looks at adoption of 48 V mild-hybrid technology, analyzing Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA’s) role in the market and the technology’s impact on electrified vehicles globally.

Though adoption has been on the rise in Europe, 48 V electrical systems have had little presence in the US. During the Los Angeles Auto Show and the North American International Auto Show in December 2017 and January 2018, however, FCA surprised the industry with major new product announcements incorporating 48 V systems in some of its highest volume vehicles. : According to a new report from , this marked a major shift in the near-term outlook for 48 V system adoption in North America.

“The prospects for adoption of vehicles with 48 V mild hybrid systems in North America picked up significant momentum in late 2017 and early 2018 as Fiat Chrysler introduced the technology on two of its highest volume nameplates,” says Sam Abuelsamid, senior research analyst at Navigant Research. “Prior to the announcement of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler and 2019 Ram 1500 pickup, it appeared that only some premium European brands would be launching the technology in North America before 2020.”

While high fuel prices and the desire for reduced greenhouse gases have been strong drivers for European adoption of 48 V systems, in the US, fuel remains relatively inexpensive, and the prevailing political climate at the federal level has shifted away from endorsing efficiency. According to the report, FCA’s marketing emphasis on the performance enhancement of the system has set the stage for mild hybrid systems to finally experience commercial success in North America.

The report, , examines the shift in the adoption of 48 V mild-hybrid technology. It discusses the role FCA is playing in this shift, as well as the impact on the global market for electrified vehicles. The study also examines the requirements for 48 V systems and how the industry is promoting performance and efficiency over green credentials. Recommendations are provided to OEMs and suppliers on what issues they should be monitoring, including consumer acceptance and component costs. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the .
