Executive Summary

The automotive industry is experiencing rising adoption of electric vehicles due to changing consumer preferences, rising concerns with regard to driver safety, environmental concerns, and acute government regulations and policies.

Major original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are constantly working on development for making electric vehicles more safe, affordable, and efficient. Over time, the automotive industry is evolving, and technical advancements are being made for electric vehicle accessories such as battery systems, cooling systems, wiring harness systems, and other infrastructure.

Wiring harnesses remain to be one of the most crucial components of any vehicle as they comprise one of the heaviest and most expensive parts of the vehicle. In addition to this, these are usually customized based on a car’s model and its requirements; the cable system is tailor-made to optimize the vehicular model as much as possible.

The wiring system is usually divided into high voltage electric wire harnesses and low voltage electric wire harnesses.

The high voltage harness is used for the battery connections as they require additional expensive high-voltage lines for AC-DC charging, high-voltage batteries, and traction, as well as special wiring for the main battery and the battery management system.

The low voltage harnesses are usually used in the sensory framework of the car and doors. These low voltage harnesses also make up the dashboard and infotainment system of the vehicle.

There is a big difference between the wiring harnesses served in normal internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles and electric vehicles.

The EVs require more amount of wiring as the number of PCBs and circuits greatly increases. The sensors are also more in number and thus, require more wiring. There is less need for high voltage cabling in traditional ICE vehicles that is almost unmatched by its need in EVs.

The high voltage cabling is absolutely essential owing to the battery system of EVs. This difference can result in several kgs of weight increase in EVs than ICE cars. The harnesses weigh about only XXkg in traditional cars versus almost mounting up almost a staggering XX kgs of weight in the EVs.

There are a number of advancements being made in the field of wiring harnesses in vehicles, their framework, placement, and the type of material being used in the wires. With increasing sensor complexity, the wiring Is getting more central, with the battery as a powerhouse at the core of the vehicle. Significant changes to electronic systems will continue to fuel demand for innovative solutions as more automobiles become electric.

Printed circuit boards (PCBs) are also becoming more crucial in the production and operation of electrically driven vehicles. PCBs are a critical component of autonomous car technology. When using a vehicle’s autonomous capabilities, several external sensors are required to assure safety, which increases the amount of cabling and pressure on the harness setup.

Traditionally the wiring harness involves copper wires in ICE vehicles, which are heavy, and since the weight has everything to do with the performance and range of an EV, the wiring harness in an electric vehicle uses a combination of copper and aluminum wires to deliver maximum performance while adding as less weight to the overall vehicle as possible. The harness also needs to adhere to some safety and resilience standards, such as it must withstand various shocks and ultraviolet radiation.

The charging harness must meet the moving harness’s anti-rolling criteria. The car’s high-voltage harness should be able to tolerate a variety of liquids that may come into contact with it. The car’s high-voltage harness is normally a single core for the convenience of installation, while the charging harness is typically a multi-core integrated wiring harness, including high-voltage main and ground lines, low-voltage signal lines, and even communication double-effect lines (CAN).

Considering the effect of COVID-19 on the North America market, several businesses, such as Volkswagen, Honda, Ford, Daimler, Mercedes, and Nissan, around the globe concentrated on manufacturing accessories to bolster the global health care systems. Therefore, there was a shortage of funds for companies to invest in their R&Ds.

This led to the decline in the sales of electric vehicles in general. Consequently, the supply chain of wiring harnesses and connectors manufacturers got disrupted, and it inadvertently affected their growth.

However, as the COVID-19 is normalizing and the electric car sales are picking pace, wiring harness manufacturers will also witness a surge in demand in the coming years.
