Electrified cars are thrumming on the starting line!

Some markets and applications arose because the governments decided to edict new laws. This is the case of tire pressure monitors for example, which represent nom >100M units per year, because of the legislations in most countries.

It is happing the same story for the electrified vehicles (different types of hybrid and electric cars): today, the market is really much smaller than expected, but the governments' pushes for C02 reduction will help this market to really start. Of course, the cost reduction of the electric functions in the car, cost savings for the owners due to architectural changes and also technical breakthrough will be instrumental for the really market adoption of electrified vehicles.
