With the bolstering sales of electric vehicles worldwide, automakers are keen towards establishing robust infrastructure so as to fulfil the operational requirements of these electric vehicles. Increasing adoption of electric vehicles demands proper infrastructure for charging. Moreover, to meet the consumer demand, significant advancements, both in home and outdoor charging are expected over the forecast period.
Rapid increase in number of publically accessible charging stations has been witnessed in developed regions such as North America and Western Europe that suffice charging demands through high voltage and high currents. Furthermore, technology leaders are focusing on introducing electric vehicle charging stations with better charging capabilities and reduced charging time.
One such example is Tesla Supercharging Station – an electric vehicle charging station that utilizes DC current and supplies at most 120 kW per car. The Tesla supercharger can charge a vehicle’s battery up to 50% within 20 minutes. The electric vehicle charging stations market when mapped out of a product life cycle is still in growth phase and is expected to remain lucrative and opportunistic due to ongoing significant research and development in the technical field.
Following the footprints of leading players in the market, fast vehicle charging stations are expected to be the area of focus for the remaining players over the forecast period. Furthermore, electric vehicle manufacturers are developing strategies to attract large customer base for electric vehicles through providing free charging access. Such strategies added with robust macro-economic environment supporting the growth of electric vehicles market is expected to boost the growth of the electric vehicle charging stations market too, over the forecast period.
Global Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Market: Market Dynamics
The global electric vehicle charging stations market is expected to be significantly driven by incentives and subsidies from governments that fuel sales of electric vehicles. Strategic initiatives by major players to provide free charging facility to electric vehicle owners will gain significant attraction in the market over the forecast period.
Preference of home charging stations by electric vehicle owners, especially in North America and Europe is expected to significantly boost the sales of AC electric vehicle charging stations over the forecast period. Presently, the market for electric vehicle charging stations is highly consolidated, and thus there exists huge influence of major players and hence electric vehicle charging stations lack standardization, which in turn is expected to restrain growth of the market. Moreover, higher cost of DC charging stations over the conventional electric vehicle charging stations can further hamper market growth.
