Moreover, government subsidies and tax incentives aimed at encouraging the adoption of micro-mobility vehicles are further expected to create more growth opportunities for the market.

U.S. micro-mobility charging infrastructure market size, by vehicle type, 2020 - 2030 (USD Million)

Rising applications of micro-mobility vehicles in the transportation and commercial sectors are presenting the need for a strong network of micro-mobility charging stations. In response to the rising demand, micro-mobility vehicle manufacturers are also focusing on offering charging networks across the globe. For instance, in November 2020, TIER, a German e-scooter startup, raised USD 250 million in a Series C funding round from SoftBank Vision Fund 2 to expand its presence in European cities. Such developments bode well for the growth of the micro-mobility charging infrastructure market over the forecast period.

Leading players across the globe are offering innovative services to grow in the increasingly competitive market. For instance, in December 2020, Ola Electric Mobility Pvt Ltd announced the launch of its electric charging stations known as the Ola Hypercharger Network for its range of e-scooters across the world. The company has planned to develop 5,000 charging points across 100 cities in India to provide seamless charging for its e-scooters.

The demand for wireless charging stations for e-scooters and e-bikes has increased significantly in recent years. Several players are developing innovative products to enhance operational functionality and reduce the charging time of chargers. For instance, in May 2021, LG Electronics launched wireless charging stations in Bucheon, Seoul, in partnership with Olulo, Inc’s Kickgoing, a local e-scooter sharing service provider, to provide a better experience for e-scooter users.

The rapidly growing demand for shared mobility solutions is further expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period. Increasing traffic congestion, fuel cost, and rapidly shrinking parking spaces in emerging and developed countries have led to a greater demand for shared mobility solutions. Moreover, citizens prefer the use of shared mobility solutions as they are cheaper than other modes of transportation and eliminate the issues related to parking spaces. However, the high costs of setting up micro-mobility vehicle charging infrastructure could hamper the growth prospects of the market to a certain extent.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have an adverse impact on the market. The pandemic decimated demand for public transport as businesses closed and people stayed home. This impacted the profitability of players in the market. Moreover, as micro-mobility vehicle manufacturing facilities remained closed due to the pandemic, a severe impact was also observed on the demand for micro-mobility charging infrastructure. Multiple industries faced significant challenges due to the shortage of raw materials.

Vehicle Type Insights

The e-scooters segment dominated the market in 2021 and accounted for more than 60.0% share of the global revenue. The increasing adoption of e-scooters for shared mobility transportation and first and last-mile transportation has led to an increase in the demand for micro-mobility charging stations for e-scooters. Micro-mobility charging stations in the market are adaptable to any model of e-scooter design, providing greater flexibility to the user. Riders have started using more and more e-scooters as these scooters are easy to park and recharge. E-scooter charging platforms help to reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality by lowering e-scooter recovery operations.

The e-bikes segment is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Increasing deployment of e-bike charging stations in tourist and public areas is expected to fuel the segment growth over the forecast period. The demand for charging stations capable of charging multiple e-bikes at the same time is high. Also, these e-bike charging stations can be easily and quickly mounted free-standing or on a wall.

Charger Type Insights

The wired segment dominated the market in 2021 and accounted for more than 53.0% share of the global revenue. The high demand for wired charging stations can be attributed to the convenience they offer. Several market players, including bike-energy and Swiftmile, Inc, have developed wired charging stations that are flexible to use in any weather conditions. These wired charging stations are compatible with all e-scooters and e-bikes, thereby providing greater flexibility in charging. These factors are expected to contribute to the growth of the wired segment.

The wireless segment is anticipated to register the fastest over the forecast period. The segment growth can be attributed to the increasing usage of autonomous vehicles in logistics by prominent retail Multinational Corporations (MNCs) and public transport agencies. Wireless charging systems are more convenient for e-scooters and e-bikes as compared to wired charging stations. Moreover, companies are also developing intelligent dock systems called wireless charging systems that work indoors and outdoors. Wireless charging stations can also potentially help avoid plug-in glitches regularly faced with wired charging stations.

Power Source Insights

The battery-powered segment dominated the market in 2021 and accounted for more than a 55.0% share of the global revenue. The demand for battery-powered charging stations is increasing due to the rising adoption of battery-swapping technology for e-scooters. At battery swapping stations, users can easily swap an uncharged battery with a charged one and can continue their rides. Many companies have started installing battery-swapping stations in public places. For instance, in January 2021, Zypp, an electric vehicle startup, announced that it is planning to set up 5,000 battery swapping stations in 100 cities across India.

The solar-powered segment is anticipated to register the fastest growth over the forecast period. Benefits such as reduced operating and maintenance costs as compared to battery-powered systems drive the demand for solar-powered charging infrastructure. Moreover, solar-powered charging stations are generally used by people to charge their e-scooters within a shorter period to travel short distances.

End-use Insights

The residential segment dominated the market in 2021 and accounted for more than 68.0% share of the global revenue. Factors such as an increase in urbanization and growing traffic congestion are encouraging customers to shift to micro-mobility vehicles. Users prefer stations that allow the overnight charging of micro-mobility vehicles in homes and residential complexes. In addition, people are becoming more inclined to use e-scooters and e-bikes for transportation at shorter distances. The market features a diverse range of products that cater to a variety of transportation requirements. These factors are anticipated to contribute to the segment growth over the forecast period.

Global micro-mobility charging infrastructure market share, by end use, 2021 (%)

The commercial segment is anticipated to register significant growth over the forecast period.
