The Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) market is expected to continue its growth during the forecast period. The growth will be driven by increasing demand for electric vehicles, improvements in EVSE technology, government initiatives and regulations promoting electric vehicles, and investments in charging infrastructure. Additionally, the decreasing cost of batteries and other EV components is expected to make electric vehicles more affordable and attractive to consumers, further driving the EVSE market growth.
Globally, the number of public chargers installed has been on the growth path due to government initiatives to develop a favorable ecosystem to encourage citizens to adopt electric vehicles.
Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE), also called EV charging stations, electric charging points, EV charging systems, or just charging points, perform the function of supplying electric energy to charge the EV. EVSE systems include electric conductors, software, and communication protocols that deliver energy efficiently and safely to the electric vehicle.
The other significant functions performed by EVSE are
Growing public awareness of the need for action on climate change and the overuse of resources has driven sustainability to the top of the agenda for governments, investors, corporations, and multilateral organizations. Decarbonization of transportation is considered a major step in mitigating climate change, and electric vehicles are being viewed as the visible solution to achieve it.
The global EV sales share increased by 4.7% in 2022 relative to 2021, and the global electric car registrations increased by 36% in 2022 relative to 2021, despite the pandemic-related worldwide downturn in car sales in which global car sales dropped 16%.
The global EV stock across passenger and commercial vehicle modes (except two/three-wheelers) is expected to reach 145 million in 2030, which offers an excellent opportunity for the rapid growth of EV charging infrastructure.
The recent developments appear promising for increasing the adoption of electric vehicles. Major countries have planned to phase out conventional vehicles entirely. China, the United States, and Europe, which account for 90% of the global electric vehicle sales, have set ambitious EV targets.
Many other countries are following the same path to phase out conventional vehicles. For instance, Costa Rica and Columbia have set targets to make the majority of their vehicles zero-emission by 2050.
The combined goals of OEMs exceed those of official statements in several markets. A number of significant automakers have stated that they intend to convert existing manufacturing capacity and establish new product lines in 2021 in order to hasten the transition to electric. For instance:
Many other major automakers have announced intentions to increase the number of available models and boost the production of light-duty electric vehicles (LDVs). In addition, more than 10 OEMs have announced their electrification target for 2030 and beyond.
Some other drivers are:
Standardization is critical to ensure that new technologies grow and develop unhindered by the manufacturer-led standard. The lack of standardization is a vital issue that can have a detrimental effect on EV adoption.
The major issue with the existing charging network and vehicles is the design parameters between the charger and the car maker. While some nations such as China and the European Union have suggested uniformity in charging infrastructure nationwide, the issue is still disputed in other parts of the world.
The major problems in standardization are, pioneer auto manufacturers have invested heavily in charging solutions in order to build (IP) intellectual property rights on charging technology to gain a competitive advantage.
Carmakers are devising their charging devices in such a way that distinguishes unique brands; unique charging parameters such as voltage and current are set with their own charge port design depending on the battery chemistry of the vehicle to extend battery life.
The prolonged effects of the pandemic slowed down the global EV market due to supply chain interruption and thus resulting in the slow growth of the EVSE market. Covid19 and associated issues such as shelter-in orders by the government have limited residential EV chargers installations and resulted in installation delays. The instability in global trade is a major uncertainty looming over the global EVSE market players. Post lockdown-related restrictions were lifted, the EVSE market has once again picked up the pace.
Other Key Restraints to the EVSE Market
In America, 81% of the population lives in urban areas. The EV owners living in multi-family dwellings and apartments rely on public charging stations. With the addition of around 54,000 Level 2 and 10,000 Level 3 chargers in 2022, there were more charging ports in the United States than in the previous three years put together. As electric vehicle adoption increases, the demand for a robust charging infrastructure is expected to scale up.
In 2020, Europe overtook China as the biggest EV market. Even though the car market contracted by 22% in 2020. Nearly 2.2 million new plug-in electric passenger vehicles were registered in Europe in 2022. With the increasing EV fleet, the EV charging infrastructure market is also advancing at a fast pace. The Netherlands, Germany, and France account for the majority of all EV charging stations in Europe.
China is already the country with the most EV charging stations in the world. According to China's electric vehicle charging alliance, 650,000 public chargers were deployed in 2022, bringing the country's total to 1.8 million. There are 383,000 public chargers in Guangdong province alone, which is more than twice as many as there are in the entire United States.
The AC power charger (level 1 and level 2) market segment, though slowed down due to Covid19 restrictions, is expected to grow as restrictions are lifted. The DC fast charger, which is widely used in public charging points, is anticipated to grow rapidly due to legislation mandating EV charging infrastructure.
The development of smart charging technologies such as V1G, V2G, and V2X, which aim to reduce the EV ownership cost by turning electric vehicles from unreliable resources into reliable, dispatchable, and monetizable assets, is anticipated to increase the adoption of EVs in the future.
EVSE Industry in India
The government of India has decided to ensure that 30% of the vehicles on road are electric by 2030. As a result, India’s EV market in FY 2021 comprised 61% electric two-wheelers, 37% electric three-wheelers and light commercial vehicles, 2% electric four-wheelers, and 0.2% E-buses.
As of Dec 2022, there are about 5,151 public electric vehicle chargers were installed throughout the country.
According to the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, India's EV sales topped one million units for the first time in 2022, setting a record growth rate of 206% year over year over the 2021 EV sales figures and the number is expected to rise. To meet the growing demand, India will need to deploy a robust electric vehicle charging infrastructure across geographies.
Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric Vehicles (FAME II) scheme is India’s key national policy to promote EVs. It allocated USD 1.4 billion over three years from 2019 for 1.6 million hybrid and electric vehicles (including two and three-wheelers, buses, and cars). The scheme also encourages the domestic manufacturing of EVs and their parts.
The government of India, through FAME, is pushing the deployment of EV charging stations by providing capital subsidies. Further, the government has delicensed the activity of setting up charging stations to increase private sector investments and facilitate market adoption.
In order to facilitate mass adoption and awareness of the charging stations, the government of India directed all commercial and institutional buildings such as shopping malls, hospitals, offices, hotels, movie theatres, educational institutions, etc- with a parking capacity of more than 100 vehicles to set aside 5% of their parking spaces for EV charging.
In Oct 2021, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) announced its plans to cover 40,000 kilometers of highways in the country with an EV charging facility spread across 40 to 60 kilometers apart.
Indian State and urban have also started efforts to fast track the electrification of road transport. In Feb 2021, New Delhi announced a Switch Delhi awareness campaign to highlight the state government’s EV ambitions and stimulus to the EVs and charging infrastructure. Delhi has the highest number of charging stations in the country.
Many private partnerships to establish charging stations are also underway. In Feb 2022, Tata Power and Apollo Tyres joined forces to build public EV charging stations in India. Through the partnership charging stations will be deployed at Apollo tyre zones across the country.
With all the developments and roadmaps to deploy EV charging stations, the Indian market offers a great opportunity for EVSE OEMs to enter the market and expand their presence.
Electric bus adoption in public transport urban fleets is growing globally.
