Guidehouse Insights Report Shows the Global Market for Plug-In EV Charging Is Expected to Exceed $70 Billion by 2030

Sponsored by Businesswire

A new report from Guidehouse Insights examines the global plug-in EV (PEV) charging market, providing an assessment of charging technologies and their applications, market drivers and challenges, the competitive landscape, and the extent by which the market is likely to grow to 2030.

The market for PEV charging infrastructure is composed of many types of technologies and nuanced approaches to serve PEV drivers and fleet operators. The market is also young, and the potential value that vehicle electrification offers drivers via charging remains largely untapped. Reduced vehicle downtime through increased charging speed; improved charging convenience through wireless and on-demand mobile charging; and more efficient charging through grid and renewables integration are major areas for development as PEV adoption increases. Click to tweet: According to a new report from @WeAreGHInsights, the global PEV charging market—inclusive of charger production, installation, and operations and maintenance (O&M)—is expected to exceed $21 billion in 2020. From there, it is anticipated to slow in 2021 and 2022 and then accelerate again to reach more than $70 billion by 2030.

“Though the plug-in EV (PEV) market contracted in 2019 and is likely to do so again in 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the market for charging infrastructure has been and will likely remain resilient,” says Scott Shepard, senior research analyst with Guidehouse Insights. “This market more than doubled its market size in 2018, an increase driven almost entirely by a surge of charge point deployments, estimated at nearly 800,000 stations, in China. As the balance of supply and demand in China corrects in 2021 and 2022, growth is expected to slow before increasing again toward the end of the decade.”

According to the report, the growing PEV fleet demands significant investment in technologies and services for charging equipment, installation, and O&M. Ubiquitous electrical infrastructure in developed geographies enables these investments to take place in a variety of locations such as homes, apartment complexes, workplaces, fleet depots, driver destinations, and retail fuel sites. This variety creates a highly diverse market with hundreds of competitors.

The report, EV Charging Equipment Overview, provides an overview of the global PEV charging market. It includes an assessment of charging technologies and their applications, market drivers and challenges, the competitive landscape, and the extent by which the market is likely to grow to 2030. Forecasts include AC and DC chargers, wireless chargers, and pantograph poles. These are split by major charging application identified as home, private network, fleet depot, destination, and fast charge service. Additional review and analysis of supporting technologies such as energy storage devices, cloud-based charger management platforms, load controllers, and power converters is provided alongside how they are typically integrated in charge point deployments. An executive summary of the report is available for free download on the Guidehouse Insights website.
