EV Industry 2020 Report

Facing pollution across the world, governments in the developed and developing economies have put more focus on sustainable business. The automotive industry is no exception, where traditional gas-based vehicles have started to be overtaken by electric vehicles (EVs). These are expected to change the way we live and as such can provide viable long-term investment opportunities.


Over 2 million electric vehicles were sold in 2018, up from just a few thousand in 2010, and there is no sign of slowing down. We expect annual passenger EV sales to rise to 10 million in 2025, 28 million in 2030 and 56 million by 2040.



In longer term, things look even better as 2020 is barely the beginning of a huge trend towards conversion of traditional gas-based vehicles to EVs.

This portion of stocks represents the growth engine of the investment portfolio during normal economic times. By normal economic times, we refer to the period of economic expansion (opposed to period of economic contraction, for which we had gold mining stocks) or the type of years we had from 2012-2019 – with higher inflation and decreasing interest rates to boost economic growth even further.

Given their cyclical nature, in times of market turbulence, these stocks are likely to take hits. These hits are then recovered and stocks are allowed to grow to new highs during new economic expansion.

The allocation percentage to EV(and other growth industries) can vary between 15%-55% depending on the lifecycle of the investor, risk tolerance, investment horizon and the investment objectives.
