The global metals in electric vehicle charging infrastructure market is anticipated to grow on account of increasing demand for electric vehicles (EVs) to curb pollution, which has spurred the need for charging stations to normalize the usage of EVs as any other fuel-driven vehicle. This in turn is anticipated to propel demand for metals, which are used as an essential raw material in the charging infrastructure for EVs.

Shifting trend towards full adoption of EVs as passenger cars is projected to benefit the long term market growth. Government authorities across the globe are embracing EVs, for instance, UK has planned to stop the sale of gasoline and diesel vehicles by 2030. China, Israel, Norway, and Germany are the countries, which have announced similar plans.

Increasing investments in the construction of EV charging stations are expected to augment metals demand. For instance, the key automotive players are planning to invest in electric vehicle charging infrastructure, which is attributed to the drivers of EVs, as they should be ensured that charging stations are near to their location. This transition in electric mobility will benefit the economies in decarbonizing the automotive sector.

Furthermore, economies such as India and Brazil are projected to attract large investments for EV infrastructure. As per the NITI Ayog, an Indian government entity, India requires one charging station at every 25 kilometers on a highway. In addition, Kazam, internet of things (IoT) based charging station service provider has planned to install at least 1 lakh charging stations in the country by 2023.

Based on metals, the market is divided into aluminum, copper, steel, and others. A charging station consists of housing, switch & fuses, control & operation system, and an electricity meter. These components require metals, for example, the housings require aluminum or steel, and the electrical components make use of critical metals.

Copper is anticipated to register highest demand over the forecast period, as it is emerging as an essential material in the EV industry. Around 3.5kg of copper is used in making of one charging station. Growth in charging infrastructure will require more copper as connections to the electric grids expand.

The companies providing EV-related solutions are reaching milestones and continuously working upon green mobility. For instance, in October 2021, Tata Power achieved a target of 1,000 EV charging stations in India, which are spread various premises including hotels, malls, offices, and public places. The company is also planning to install 10,000 stations on the highways of the country.

Based on charging ports, the market has been segmented into Level 1, Level 2, and DC fast charging. The latter is anticipated to progress substantially over the forecast period owing to its rapid charging capability coupled with government initiatives to install fast charging stations and added investments by automakers.

For instance, the U.S. government is prioritizing EV charging system networks under the USD 2 trillion infrastructure bill and has promised for at least 500,000 devices installed. As of 2020, there are 41,400 EV charging stations in the country out of which less than 5,000 are fast chargers. Thus, government initiatives to promote development of fast chargers are anticipated to propel segment growth over the forecast period.

Based on end-user, the market has been segmented into private and commercial. The latter is anticipated to dominate the market over the forecast period as majority of the EV stations are anticipated to be installed in commercial places such as, hotels, petrol pumps, workplaces, apartments, hospitals, university campuses, and malls.

For instance, in July 2021, Tata Power collaborated with Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL), a public sector company to install EV charging stations at all the petrol pumps of HPCL across India. This partnership also supports the government initiative, the National Electric Mobility Mission Plan.

Based on region, Europe is anticipated to witness high growth over the forecast period as countries under the region are profoundly planning to install electric chargers to achieve a green economy. For instance, National Charging Infrastructure Agenda by the Netherlands has planned to install 1.7 million charging stations by 2030. Such initiatives are expected to augment the demand for metals in the country.

Rapidly rising prices of metals and versatility of components used in making EV stations is likely to affect the demand for metals. However, the exceptional properties of metals are attracting leading automakers and electric charging station providers; thus, boosting the market growth
