Increased Production and Sales of Electric Vehicles Drives the Market Growth

Ministry of Investment of Saudi Arabia ("MISA"), the Saudi Industrial Development Fund ("SIDF"), and the Economic City at King Abdullah Economic City ("KAEC") have signed an agreement to accelerate the goal set by leading authorities and meet the emission targets. Lucid has announced plans to invest in developing the advanced electric vehicle manufacturing industry to address the growing demand for electric vehicles. The new manufacturing plant aims to build around 150,000 vehicles per year at the King Abdullah Economic City by using the United States research and development technical expertise to assemble better-performing versions of electric vehicles. The setting up of a new plant is expected to create numerous job opportunities and support the skill development of people. Also, Saudi Arabia and Taiwan's Foxconn Technology Group are expected to work together to fuel the development of electric vehicles in the country. The rise in the companies' interest in investments in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to develop electric vehicle infrastructure is expected to propel market growth through the next five years.

Favorable Government Policies Supports the Market Growth

To curb the pollution levels and the need to find energy sources that do not adversely affect the environment is expected to fuel the demand for alternate energy or renewable energy. Saudi Arabia included its carbon mitigation goals to be achieved by 2030 and developed its first nationally determined contribution (NDC) under the Paris Agreement. Also, the government of Saudi Arabia announced the target of 30% electric vehicles in Riyadh city by 2030, which is expected to spur the sales of electric vehicles across the country. According to Saudi Vision 2030 goals, the National Industrial Development Center (NIDC) aims to attract substantial original equipment manufacturers in Saudi Arabia to boost the production and sales of electric vehicles in the country.

Saudi Arabia has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the United Kingdom to lower the carbon emissions and support sustainable energy sources to achieve the targets set by Saudi Vision 2030. The memorandum of understanding (MoU) states that both the countries will work together and share expertise to develop technologies to reduce greenhouse emissions along with the construction of electric vehicles and smart grids.

Development of EV Charging Infrastructure is Expected to Boost the Market Growth

At present, the total electric vehicle penetration in Saudi Arabia is less than 1%. Saudi Arabia electric vehicle is still at a nascent stage and is expected to create massive growth opportunities for electric vehicle manufacturers and for battery charging infrastructure in the next five years due to the rapid adoption of electric vehicles across the country. GREENER by IHCC and Schneider Electric Saudi Arabia have signed a partnership to develop e-mobility infrastructure to support the growing electric vehicle industry. The set-up of appropriate battery charging stations is expected to attract consumers to invest in the purchase of electric vehicles.

Electric vehicles require charging at regular intervals to run smoothly. With growing investments to develop electric vehicle charging infrastructure, the Saudi Arabia electric vehicle market is expected to grow at a significant rate in the forecast period.
