GLOBAL ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING INFRASTRUCTURE MARKET SEGMENTATION
This research report includes a detailed segmentation by
- Mode of Charging
- Operation Sites
INSIGHTS BY APPLICATION
The global private electric vehicle charging station market size is likely to reach 3.8 million units by 2026. As public charging infrastructure provide free-of-cost services to increase the adoption of EVs, private systems and charging companies offer the latest technology and efficiency. Both private and public have opportunities to expand globally and provide different business models in the market. Consumers currently prefer public charging stations, and the demand for such systems is higher due to tax incentives and the free cost. However, many new entrants expect to arrive in the market, and the penetration rate of private charging points is expected to increase. Thus, the market is anticipated to be dominated by private players during the forecast period. Also, private players have increased their production along with the expansion of distribution across the globe.
INSIGHTS BY OPERATION SITES
Petrol pumps, supermarkets, shopping malls, and others are common commercial places where the deployment of charging infrastructure has increased in the last years. Convenience stores or small grocery brands are also active in deploying EV chargers globally, which influences the market's growth. Several major store chains offer public EV charging stations in their parking lots. The installation of an EV charging base at petrol pumps has been developing feasible networking convenient for drivers. Petrol pump stations are strategically located based on the driver’s preferences. APAC and European countries are heavily expanding their resources to install EV recharge stations at petrol pumps. The global electric vehicle charging infrastructure market by petrol pumps is likely to grow at a CAGR of approx. 31% from 2020 to 2026.
INSIGHTS BY MODE OF CHARGING
The wired electric vehicle charging infrastructure market share accounts for an 80% revenue share and is expected to reach over 5.5 million units by 2026. With the increased demand for DCFC systems, the wired segment expects to grow during the forecast period. Electric vehicles will continue to reduce the world's carbon footprint. In countries such as China, Norway, Iceland, and Sweden, hybrid battery vehicles and all-electric cars have grown significantly. The BEV and PHEV demand is projected to be fueled by technical advances, better facilities, and improving socio-economic conditions. The success of BEVs and PHEVs is expected to drive up demand for wired EV charging systems during the forecast period.
The growing demand for electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging networks, the implementation of wireless technology in European countries, and the prevalence of range anxiety are the major factors driving the growth of the wireless EV charging infrastructure industry. Standardization of wireless devices further contributes to the market's expansion. The global wireless charging infrastructure segment is growing at a CAGR of approx. 28%.
INSIGHTS BY VOLTAGE
The global level 1 voltage charging infrastructure market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 13% from 2020 to 2026. Level 1 charging is increasing in the residential sector market. As level 1 require the onboard charging infrastructure and not advanced technology, its preference is high commercially. The global level 2 voltage charging infrastructure segment is likely to grow at a CAGR of over 32%, expecting to reach over 5 million units by 2026. The level 2 systems are a low-cost, high-speed recharging option. They normally do not pull enough power to cause demand charges (unless a large number are connected to a single meter), which keeps the cost of purchasing or operating one notch down.
The demand for fast and ultra-fast chargers has been increasing tremendously from several regions as the adoption rate of EVs has increased. Hence, the demand for a faster network will increase the demand for level 3–5 DCFC charging infrastructure during the forecast period. The global level 3–5 voltage market is likely to reach over 1.5 million units by 2026.
INSIGHTS BY GEOGRAPHY
APAC is likely to lead the global electric vehicle charging infrastructure market share in revenue and volume. The APAC electric vehicle charging infrastructure market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 31% during the forecast period. The increasing adoption of electric vehicles at commercial levels is aiding the growth of the market. China, Japan, South Korea, and India are the fastest-growing markets in the region. Significant developments have taken place owing to the high pollution rates in APAC countries. However, the knowledge gap has been a challenge for consumers and manufacturers to penetrate the market quickly. Electric charging systems are deployed at commercial facilities such as in parking garages, supermarkets, and office spaces in the APAC region. The growing demand for electric cars, government incentives and discounts for electric vehicles, and environmental issues are other major factors driving the infrastructure development in the region.
INSIGHTS BY VENDORS
APAC, Europe, and North American economies are the three most promising markets for electric vehicles and associated infrastructure. These three regions account for a significant share of the market. Opportunities in the electric vehicle charging market are numerous because these are mainly untapped with no clear market leaders. All markets are expected to expand rapidly over the next decade, coinciding with the anticipated mass acceptance of electric vehicles (EVs). ABB, Star Charge, and DBT Technologies are among the most prominent vendors. Product launches are a popular approach used by industry leaders to broaden their product portfolios and expand their global presence. For instance, in March 2019, Tesla Inc. unveiled the V3 Supercharger, the company's third generation of Supercharger, charging a vehicle in less than 15 minutes.
