The electric Vehicle market is growing rapidly. Research by Morgan Stanley shows that one billion electric cars will be on the roads by 2050.
It’s hard to imagine a modern car without embedded software. It’s even harder to imagine an electric vehicle without it. From maintaining and monitoring the battery to the user interface software is one of the most vital components of EV. EVs already have software embedded in every part, and this trend will be only greater in future EVs.
This prevalence of software and digital all over the electric vehicle opens up a wide variety of opportunities for the IT, software companies and digital solutions providers. The other automotive trends such as connected, shared and autonomous vehicles add even further diversity to these opportunities.
With the future of software in EVs looking so bright, IT & software firms with the right strategy and approach could have laid the foundations for big wins.

EVIT stands for Electric Vehicle & Information Technology. It is a detailed expert guide that provides comprehensive inputs and analysis on the growing opportunities for software companies in the EV field and outlines avenues through which stakeholders can focus their efforts on the exact opportunity.
To gain a deeper understanding on the role of software on the EV industry and identify additional abatement efforts the industry could pursue, our team examined the entire value chain from batteries to non powertrain components, and has considered how key stakeholders such as EV manufacturers (OEM's),Charging infrastructure providers, battery manufacturers, maintenance service providers, big brands, retailers, investors, consumers and policymakers can contribute to the increasing opportunities.
Our analyses took a deep dive into each component of the EV value chain, and we have provided insights and characteristics of the software applications and possible software opportunities for over 20 different value chain components.
Our team has reviewed in-depth the involvement of software in an electric vehicle and its associated components, a detailed look at the new software and IT innovations across the value chain and finally comprehensive review of the upcoming opportunities supported by market case studies.
Our inputs and analyses show how there are fascinating chances for software available right now for every part of the value chain and every stakeholder category. Based on our analyses and from insights and perspectives from other industry experts, we have provided recommendations to EV as well as Software and IT industry top management which when implemented has the potential to significantly increase the opportunities.
EVIT has been prepared with the global business stakeholders in mind, and covers IT, digital solutions, innovations and case studies from from over 50 countries including USA, Canada, EU (France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Norway, Sweden), UK, South Korea, Japan, China, India, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, Australia and more.
