Wired Electric Charging Market forecast to reach $39.6 billion by 2025

Wired Electric Charging Market is forecast to reach $39.6 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR 9.1% from 2020 to 2025. Wired charging requires metal communication between the electric vehicle supply unit (EVSE) and the battery charging inlet. Wired Electric Chargers provide a direct link to the supply by a power cord attached to the wall outlet at one end and the vehicle inlet at the other end. They are common in architecture, they are easy and they have high performance. The growing need for energy-efficient vehicles is one of the key factors for growth in the market for the Wired EV charging station. In effort to reduce air emissions generated by diesel and coal engines, governments around the globe are promoting the usage of energy-efficient automobiles such as EVs. EV use would continue to reduce the global carbon footprint. Countries such as China, Norway, Iceland and Sweden have seen a significant growth in the selling of electric battery vehicles and all-electric automobiles. Factors such as developments in electric car technology, improvements in charging facilities and improving socio-economic conditions are also projected to further boost demand for BEVs and PHEVs. Therefore, with the rising acceptance of BEVs and PHEVs, demand for wired EV charging stations would rise significantly over the forecast period.

By Mode- Segment Analysis 
 
During the forecast period the Mode 2 segment is expected to grow at a CAGR 10.9%. For cars that do not endorse Mode 1 charging. Mode 1 is banned in USA as it includes earth link which is not a standard feature of domestic electric plants in the USA. Mode 2 charging solves the issue by utilizing an inline electronics box in the center of the charging cord gets around this issue. This package emulates clever charge point contact and enables the cable to connect with the vehicle (instead of the charge point). Usually Mode 2 charging is defined as semi-fast or nominal charging. Mode 2 uses single phase supply for charging. This charging is mainly mounted at home, in public spaces and in shopping centres. It is commonly referred to as “chance charging” as operator of a car normally does this form of charging if they have the chance. This charging requires around 3 – 8 hours for full charge. This is cheap and most versatile option for charging and this is anticipated to help in the growth of this market.
By Vehicle Type – Segment Analysis
 
During the forecast period Plug-in Hybrid EV is expected to grow at a CAGR 10.7%. Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle (PHV) is a car running on batteries, an internal combustion engine (IC Engine) and an electric motor. The substantial increase in the demand for plug-in hybrid cars can be related to reduced noise emissions, decreased gasoline usage and more. Furthermore, the production and manufacture of modern electric passenger cars is projected to fuel the growth of plug-in hybrid vehicles. Growing concern over environmental emissions and consumer’s high disposal income on the plug-in hybrid vehicle sector is assumed to benefit from the increasing demand for Light Motor Vehicle. Continuous advances in batteries and automotive control systems are expected to fuel PHV automotive development and growth of PHV vehicles would result in the growth of wired electric charging market.
By Geography – Segment Analysis
 
APAC currently dominates the global Wired Electric Charging market with a share of more than 37%. It is anticipated the APAC region should retain its domination over the sector throughout the forecast period. This is due to the rising stringency of emission norms in the region’s developing economies. The rise of the market share of wired EV charging stations is due to rising demand for EVs from countries such as China, Japan, India, Singapore, Thailand, and South Korea. Electric cars are starting to use high-end automotive models for wired charging. The benefit such as emissions control and effective usage of renewable energy has contributed to a strong demand for the industry for wired EV charging. With massive foreign investment coming from major car manufacturers, the Asia Pacific has seen huge investments over the last few years. The availability of cheap labor, infrastructural development along with subsidized government policies to improve the car manufacturing sector were a few major regions that decided Asia Pacific’s high growth in the wired EV charging industry.
Drivers – Wired Electric Charging Market
  • Technological Advances in Wired EV Charging
While the use of EVs is growing, some of the major companies are focused on creating improved charging technologies. The growing need for quick and efficient charging systems for different EVs has increased the need for better technically fitted wired EV charging stations.
