The light electric vehicle market in Philippines is expected to record a positive CAGR of ~117% on the basis of revenue in between 2017 and 2022: Ken Research

Economic Growth in Philippines

Steady economic growth in Philippines serve as a catalyst for the increasing adoption of EVs in the country. Even though, the share of electric passenger cars was comparatively lower than that of e-tricycles and electric two wheelers in 2022 but in coming years, the demand for EV will witness massive surge supported by strong economic growth coupled with increasing domestic investment and rising per capita disposable income. GDP per capita in Philippines expanded with a CAGR of 3.2% in between 2017 and 2021.

Nickel Mining

Majority of EVs use lithium-ion batteries as of 2022, relying on a combination of minerals such as copper, nickel, lithium, manganese and cobalt. Therefore, the greater adaptability of EVs in will serve as a major determinant for the growth in demand for these minerals in coming years.  Philippines had the fifth largest nickel reserves in the world, serving as the world’s largest nickel ore supplier as of 2022. 370,000 metric tons of nickel was mined in Philippines in 2021, contributing significantly to country’s overall mining sector and economic growth. Therefore, the enhancement of the country’s nickel mining sector will result in improved export prospect of the mineral from Philippines, ultimately contributing to the surging global electric vehicle production.

Reduction in Import Duty

In 2022, Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) announced the proposal for scrapping of import duty on electric vehicles to accelerate the country’s shift in adapting to environmental friendly transportation ecosystem. The proposal if implemented, will contribute in bringing down the cost for this mode of transportation that will encourage more people to avail e-vehicles than those run by fuel products in coming years, assisting the country in limiting carbon emissions. The proposal aims to adjust the tariff rate from 30% to 0% in order to populate the market with e-vehicles. The electric vehicles imported from ASEAN region already enjoys a zero-percent tariff rate as of 2022.

Installation of Charging Stations

As of 2018, there were only 19 charging stations installed in Philippines, mostly concentrated in the mainland of Luzon. Government’s push through their EVIDA legislation to install more charging stations at public locations such as parking spaces, will drive the demand for EVs in coming years.

Improvements in Battery Technology

Improvement in battery technology contributes in increasing the range and longevity of EVs. EVs that can cover more miles between charges are more practical for those with longer commutes. Coupled with that, advancement in technology will make two-wheeler EVs more affordable, positively impacting the furure demand for EVs.

Introduction of New EV Models

In the initial years of EV inception, there were an extremely limited number of makes and models to choose from, many of which could be cost prohibitive. As EVs become more common, many more styles and models of vehicles will become available, appealing to the wants and needs of a wider array of consumers.
