At the same time, condos and apartment owners are increasingly adopting EV charging stations as it helps them to earn revenue, recoup electricity costs, and attract valuable tenants from their charging stations. For instance, Park Plaza Apartments in Mountain View and Revere Apartments in Campbell have started offering EVmatch’s level 2 charging access to the general public and tenants. Additionally, Vermont property based near Mount Snow ski resort has installed an EV charger that offers access to the general public and residents 24/7, owing to the partnership of EVmatch and Green Mountain Power. Thus, the growing adoption of EV charging stations among apartments is largely contributing to the market growth.

Government grants provided to promote the adoption of EV charging stations are expected to create new opportunities for the market in the coming years. For instance, in June 2020, EVmatch received funds from Silicon Valley Clean Energy for installing 8 EV chargers across multifamily properties by 2021. Additionally, up to 75% of the grant is provided under the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme for installing EV charge points at domestic properties across the U.K. These funded home EV charge points are required to have smart technology from July 2019 onwards, which is expected to drive the demand for peer-to-peer (P2P) electric vehicle charging solutions.

Several companies, such as ZF Car eWallet GmbH and ZF Friedrichshafen AG, are emphasizing the development of blockchain transaction platforms for electric vehicle charging, which bodes well for the market growth. For instance, in July 2017, Innogy partnered with eMotorWerks, an electric vehicle infrastructure company. The partnership enabled the residential and commercial owners of eMotorWerk’s electric vehicle charging stations to rent charging time to EV drivers in a peer-to-peer network powered by Innogy's Share&Charge platform. The owners received payments in the form of mobility tokens and Euro-backed digital tokens. Furthermore, companies such as eMotorWerks and Share&Charge are focusing on the development of decentralized blockchain systems for EV charging. For instance, in January 2019, Share&Charge announced that it is working on the development of a decentralized blockchain system that uses the Open Charge Point Interface (OCPI) protocol for P2P connections between charge point operators and service providers.

The rise in the number of privately owned EV charging points is a major factor that has fueled the growth of the market. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), the number of private charging points has risen by 1.6 million from 2017 to 2018. The market growth is fueled by the increasing emphasis of various companies, such as Blink Charging Co. and Hubject, on offering eRoaming services to electric vehicle drivers. For instance, in October 2018, Blink Charging Co. entered into a partnership with Hubject to offer a roaming service. The eRoaming service enables EV drivers having a subscription of either of the companies to charge their EVs at charge points owned by both.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in governments globally emphasizing the implementation of stringent lockdowns. This has caused a global economic crisis that is likely to affect the investments toward the development of smart cities, EV charging networks, and various industries and sectors such as automotive, electronics, and power. This factor is likely to impact the growth of the P2P electric vehicle charging market in the next two years. Additionally, a decrease in the production of EVs owing to the shortage of lithium-ion cells in countries such as India, Brazil, and the U.K. has significantly affected the market growth.

Charger Type Insights

The level 2 segment led the peer-to-peer EV charging market and accounted for more than 72.0% share of the global revenue in 2020. The segment growth can be attributed to the increase in the adoption of level 2 chargers among corporate organizations such as The Coca-Cola Company and GENERAL MOTORS. Furthermore, government agencies such as the Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia and Burlington Electric Department are emphasizing the establishment of partnerships with peer-to-peer EV charging software developers such as EVMATCH, INC. These partnerships aim to develop level 2 chargers at multi-unit dwellings, thereby driving the segment growth. For instance, in December 2019, the Burlington Electric Department, in partnership with EVMATCH, INC., has deployed level 2 chargers at multi-unit dwelling properties in Burlington city. The companies provide multi-unit dwellings with 15 JuiceBox Pro chargers for free.

The level 1 segment is anticipated to register a significant growth over the forecast period. The segment growth can be attributed to a rise in the number of government initiatives such as the Workplace Charging Challenge. The Workplace Charging Challenge focuses on adding level 1 chargers at private companies' workplaces under their P2P network. Under this initiative, the U.S. Department of Energy has covered level 1 chargers at facilities of private organizations such as Hewlett Packard Enterprise Development LP and Thomas College across their P2P networks.

Application Insights

The residential segment led the market and accounted for more than 61.0% share of the global revenue in 2020. The segment growth can be attributed to the increase in emphasis of Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) on the expansion of residential chargers specific to peer-to-peer networks. For instance, in February 2020, Enel X announced the launch of its JuiceBox Pro, a level 2 residential EV charger. JuiceBox Pro is equipped with Wi-Fi connectivity and is compatible with the peer-to-peer network of eMotorWerks.
