Our FREE report provides an overview of the EV infrastructure market covering the current and forecast size of the market; market participants in the industry and the profit challenges along the value chain; investment levels; issues driving the development of the market; and the major challenges facing the market.
According to the IEA (May-22) publicly accessible chargers worldwide increased by +37% to xx million charging points in 2021, of which a third were fast chargers. Nearly 500,000 chargers were installed in 2021, which is more than the total number of public chargers available in 2017. The EV charging market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of +xx% from 2021 to 2028, reaching a value of US$xxbn.
The EV charging value chain can be divided into: site provision; hardware; planning & installation; charging backend; operations; electricity sales; smart energy services (which includes vehicle-to-everything charging solutions); aggregators and roaming; and mobile service providers. Participants in the charging ecosystem include automakers; oil & gas firms; utility companies; and xxx. Each has a different set of assets and incentives and a different role in the broader ecosystem. Those differences create an opportunity to align incentives and form partnerships.
More than US$xxbn was invested into the EV charging industry in the first eight months of 2022 – a combination of roll-out announcements, debt financing, investment and acquisitions. Cumulative investment in charging is expected to exceed US$xxbn globally by 2030 and over US$x trillion by 2040 to meet the needs of the electric vehicle fleet.
Some of the challenges facing the sector include:
EV charging stations are vulnerable to a number of different cyberattack scenarios.
High upfront costs and low levels of utilisation are two key reasons why many charge point operators (CPOs) are struggling to make a profit.
The growing number of EVs in circulation means that demand on the electricity grid is rising. Levels of spare capacity in an electricity grid vary by location but, in all cases, peak-hour demand is when the strain is greatest.
