In the Fast Lane: Scientometrics and Systematic Exploration of Risks in Electric Vehicle Supply Chains

Author(s): Arvind Gupta, Hemant Kumar Kaushik and Sanjay Rastogi

This study conducts a thorough analysis of the EV supply chain using both scientometrics and systematic research techniques, including qualitative as well as quantitative data in response to the increasing need for EVs and the consequent likelihood of shortages of essential supplies vital for EV batteries and electronic parts. The main goals are to find developing patterns for further research and important turning points that endanger the supply chain and require concentrated attention. The bibliometric analysis, which was made possible by the Bibliometrix program, highlights the importance of electric car costs and highlights common themes in research on transparency in supply chains and sustainability. Although there appears to have been little research on managing risks in the supply chain using analysis of keywords, the PRISMA technique systematic literature review finds it to be the most researched topic. Notably, economic analysis and environmental impact assessment come in second and third, respectively, with raw material supply emerging as the main concern. A few researches look at environmentally friendly methods and try to make them more competitive. Although the battery has been the subject of the most research, this only serves to highlight the need for further investigation into other components in order to improve competitiveness in relation to traditional vehicles.
