They added that EV-related operating profits are set to grow from $2 billion in 2020 to $133 billion in 2030. According to Goldman, this EV ecosystem includes auto manufacturers, battery makers, software developers, and companies involved in charging infrastructure and power semiconductors. It added that it expects EVs to make up 33% of global new vehicle sales by 2030. “Although growth will ease as the market expands, EVs still represent the strongest growth potential within the automobile industry,” Goldman analysts wrote. The investment bank said it believes six stocks stand to benefit the most from the increased adoption of EVs. Four of the stocks are buy-rated by Goldman: Tesla and battery-makers Freyr Battery , SK Innovation and Samsung SDI . “We think these companies should be able to tap [Inflation Reduction Act] opportunities as the battery market becomes more concentrated,” Goldman wrote.
