The global electric vehicle supply equipment market size was USD 24.52 billion in 2020 and is projected to grow from USD 31.23 billion in 2021 to USD 208.34 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 31.1% over the forecast period. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with electric vehicle supply equipment witnessing a negative impact on demand across all regions amid the pandemic Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a steady growth of 20.4% in 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s growth and demand, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the crisis is over.

Electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) assembles components to charge EVs in several commercial and residential locations including bus depots, hotels, parks, highways, corporate offices, and homes. Electric vehicle (EV) supply equipment is an assembly installed to securely deliver electrical energy to the EV for recharging batteries. The market development is supported by growing number of private and public initiatives to stimulate EV adoption. Some governments provide incentives, such as tax benefits and subsidies, to encourage EV adoption

Further, EVSE systems include communication protocols, software, electrical conductors, and related equipment that deliver energy safely and efficiently to the vehicle. One of the key factors driving the growth of the global market is the rising adoption of electric vehicles. For instance, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA), global electric vehicles sales increased by 41% to about 3 million electric cars in 2020. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic-related worldwide downturn in car sales, global passenger car sales dropped 16% in 2020. Furthermore, the increasing emphasis of different automobile manufacturers and governments toward improving the performance of charging infrastructure is further projected to boost the market growth over the forecast period.

Major Shutdown of all Operations in EVSE Manufacturing to Slow Down Market Growth Amidst COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 crisis has impacted nearly every industry, and automobile manufacturers and EVSE companies are no exception. Companies and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in some countries were shut down to control and overcome the COVID-19 situation. This shut down largely impacted the economic situation, precisely of developing nations. Restriction enforced by governments on import-export activities, travel, and other lockdown measures substantially disrupted the supply chain, thereby resulting in halt in production as most of the raw materials for automotive production was supplied from Asian countries. Therefore, EVSE manufacturers cannot achieve the deadline for the electrification of automotive vehicles due to disruption in investments and liquidity for the EVSE segment. These factors will hamper the demand for electric vehicle charging equipment that will restrain the market growth.

Increasing Electric Vehicles Penetration to Drive Market Growth

The high cost of crude oil and limited availability of non-renewable sources enhance market penetration for EVs. Over the past decade, the growing carbon emission by internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles has been a key concern for government authorities. The sustainability move toward smart cities is one of the major factors responsible for adopting eco-friendly transportation. Electric vehicles operate on battery-generated current and non-fuel, which allows the consumer to shift from traditional fuel-based vehicles mainly due to the economical maintenance of EVs. Thus, an increase in market penetration of electric vehicles is expected to boost the EVSE market growth in the coming years


Favorable Government Policies and Subsidies that Propel Market Growth

Governments in major countries across several regions have imposed stringent rules and regulations for carbon dioxide (CO2) emission standards that augmented the demand for electric vehicles worldwide. The governments are taking several initiatives such as an exemption in import tax, road tax, purchase tax, and low or zero registration fees. Apart from offering subsidies, several governments are also making favorable guidelines and regulations for developing the electric vehicle charging infrastructure.

For instance, the Scottish government invested USD 30 million from 2011 to 2019 to develop electric vehicle charging infrastructure and has installed around 1,000 publicly available electric vehicle charging points across Scotland. The same trend can be observed in other European countries, such as Germany and Norway. The companies in these countries are investing comprehensively to promote electric vehicles sales. Thus, massive subsidies and incentives on the adoption of EVs are expected to drive the EVSE market growth in the coming years.


High Installation Cost May Restrain Growth

The cost of installing electric vehicle charging infrastructure is quite high. High cost and charging infrastructure limitation are major restrains that hamper the electric vehicle charging infrastructure market growth. Charging electric vehicles require fixed space and an individual to maintain the charging infrastructure and charging point. This cost becomes the key issue, making the charging station finance unfeasible. Also, several governments have imposed certain restrictions on the per-unit price charged to the EV driver, hampering the EV charging point owner’s business. This factor may hamper the electric vehicle supply equipment market growth from 2021 to 2028.
