EV Charging Ports' Explosive Growth

EV Charging Ports' Explosive Growth
June 16, 2020

The global electric vehicle charging infrastructure market was valued at USD $11.74B in 2019 and is expected to register a CAGR of 32.0% from 2020 to 2027. The growth is fueled by the rising focus of government agencies to provide funds to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) for the development of charging stations. For instance, in December 2016, the California Energy Commission (CEC) provided funding worth $4M to ChargePoint, Inc. for the installation of charging stations across highways in California.

The major automotive manufacturers are also heavily investing resources in developing and introducing new charging stations. The manufacturers are working on developing new technologies, such as lithium-ion batteries, autonomous park-and-charge, ultra-fast DC charging networks, and wireless charging to increase the adoption of EVs. Lower operating costs, reduced maintenance, and rising consumer awareness regarding the environmental benefits are further attracting consumers towards EVs, which in turn, drives demand for electric vehicle charging stations.

The number of publicly-accessible charging points for electric vehicles jumped 60% in 2019 to reach 862,118, according to the IEA's annual Global EV Outlook. Fast chargers accounted for 31% of the total, reflecting efforts to build critical infrastructure ahead of an expected boom for EVs, which accounted for just 1% of all vehicle sales last year. Along with Tesla, there are other charge point providers like Shell, Engie, Volkswagen, and ChargePoint.
