The global electric vehicle charging stations market size is projected to reach USD 111.90 billion by 2028 from its value USD 17.59 billion in 2021, at CAGR of 30.26% during forecast period.

The COVID-19 has had an unprecedented and devastating impact worldwide, with electric vehicle charging stations witnessing a negative demand shock across all regions due to the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a significant decline of -39.11% in 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The global market size was SD 17.59 billion in 2020. The sudden rise in CAGR is attributable to this market's demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

An Electric Vehicle (EV) charging station is a device that connects an EV to a source of electricity, permitting electric cars, neighborhood EVs, and plug-in hybrids to be charged. Some charging stations offer advanced features like smart metering, cellular connectivity, and network connectivity, while others are simpler.

The EV industry is growing rapidly around the world, especially in China and the United States. The EV charging industry is a dynamic industry with a wide range of applications. Government initiatives of several countries around the world play a vital role in the development of vehicle charging stations. For instance, the central government of China has approved the development of fast-charging stations by national policies. Similarly, in the United States, the government plays a vital role by providing mandatory standards and funds to develop EV charging stations. However, in some countries/regions, there is still a shortage of commercial charging stations, which leads the consumers to rely only on the charging methods available at the workplaces and homes.

Additionally, the growing advancement in communication technologies such as real-time information on all-electric vehicle charging stations for smart connectivity will help to propel the market growth. However, the increasing number of electric cars may affect the functioning of the charging stations, such as the amount of power generation, the load level of the transformer, and the load curve.

Sudden Halt in Production to Hamper Growth amid COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has spread worldwide, posing a threat to the market for EV charging stations. COVID-19's global spread has impacted most industries. Lockdowns have been imposed by the governments of various countries, forcing people to stay at home and which, in turn, has reduced the physical interaction among people. Many companies have allowed their employees to work from home to ensure company continuity in business during the COVID-19 pandemic, which is projected to hinder the market over the forecast period. The increasing use of remote working practices is predicted to impede the growth of the automotive industry, limiting EV charging stations.

The COVID-19 crisis has caused manufacturing and supply chain disruptions in the worldwide automotive industry. Over the forecast timeframe, the shift in consumer preference toward essential products will likely influence this market. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in international borders being closed, resulting in a substantial drop in global demand for EVs.

Although most OEMs did not incur significant losses, few OEMs suffered from the pandemic. For instance, BYD's profit dropped by 85% in the first quarter of 2020. Companies such as Tesla, ChargePoint, BP, Shell, ABB, Schneider Electric, Siemens, and others suffered losses in Q1 2020. However, their EV charging business rebounded by Q3 2020 and has been expanding ever since.   

Although the pandemic's duration is difficult to predict, the arrival of COVID-19 vaccines in early 2021 is expected to benefit the automotive industry.

Electrification of Automotive is a Prominent Trend

Through the move from conventional to electric transportation, intelligent mobility and electrification are reshaping the future of mobility. Several automobile manufacturers, power companies, and facility management companies are now constructing high-capacity EV charging stations. These are some market trends for electric vehicle charging stations that are expected to play a significant role in the charging infrastructure industry's expansion.


Government Funding for Developing Charging Stations to Propel Demand

Many governments are funding up to 80% of the total cost of charging infrastructure installation. Governments of many countries are also collaborating with oil and gas companies in planning and developing charging stations and have helped establish the market for EV. The government intends to install charging stations every 100 kilometers along the national highway, enabling the Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Market growth during the forecast period.

Increasing Purchase of Electric Vehicles to Propel Market Growth

The government is providing automakers with subsidies, rebates, tax exemptions, and fixed quotas. Government subsidies for an electric car purchase are critical in influencing customer purchasing decisions. These factors have increased EV sales and production across the world. The growing stock of electric cars requires charging stations and established power grids to ensure that the cars run smoothly. Therefore, these factors are attributed to the growth of the market during the projected period. Moreover, the strict government vehicle emission regulations have prompted consumers to adopt EV, which further help boost the growth of the electric charging station market in the coming years.


Huge Initial set-up Cost for Fast Chargers May Hamper Growth

The high initial cost of level 3 and ultra-fast chargers is the greatest obstacle to the growth of this market. Consumers are prone to charging their fossil fuel vehicles in 5-7 minutes, whereas level 1 and level 2 chargers can take anywhere from 6 to 16 hours to charge fully. As a result, there is a market demand for fast chargers which can charge EVs in less than 30 minutes. However, the initial cost of a level 3 charging station can be pretty significant. This can be a restraint for people who may want to switch to EVs as charging for a long duration may affect the already busy life of most people.


By Charger Type Analysis

Fast Charger Segment Dominates the Market Backed by Requirement of Lesser Time

Based on charger type, the market is segmented into fast and slow/moderate chargers.

The fast charger segment holds a significant share in the market. The segment fast charger will showcase an exponential growth owing to the charger's ability to charge vehicles in the short period during the projected period.  Moreover, its ability to protect car batteries while charging will favor market growth.

The slow/ moderate charger segment has low growth and low penetration in 2020. The slow/ moderate charger segment accounted for a 16.24% market share in 2020. The segment will show low growth during the projected period due to the high time required to charge EVs.

By Application Analysis

Residential Segment to Remain at the Forefront

Based on the application, this market is segmented into commercial and residential.

 The residential application segment accounts for a significant electric vehicle charging stations market share and is projected to dominate the forecast period. This is attributable to the growing sales of EVs, coupled with the increasing number of charging infrastructure.

The commercial segment will showcase significant growth backed by the rising government funding to develop public charging stations in the forthcoming years.
