Industry Insights

The U.S. electric vehicle charging infrastructure (EVCI) market size was valued at USD 1.10 billion in 2018 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 39.3% from 2019 to 2025. This can be attributed to government regulations and investments for developing infrastructure for Electric Vehicles (EVs), including charging spots in parking and charging stations. Significant initiatives taken by public as well as private companies to encourage the use of EVs are also anticipated to promote market development over the forecast period.

Moreover, the government bodies, such as municipalities and federal government, are investing in the development of EV charging stations with the help of private entities. For instance, in 2016, the U.S. government announced an investment of USD 4.5 billion for the development of EV infrastructure. The initiative includes collaboration among state governments, utility companies, automakers, and federal agencies.

U.S. Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure (EVCI) Market

The market of EV charging station in the U.S. is larger at commercial spaces than residential spaces. To promote the adoption of EVs, efforts toward enhancing the infrastructure would be higher in commercial spaces, as overnight charging at residential complexes would not be sufficient for long-distance travel requirements.

The presence and concentration of large-scale automotive manufacturing and electrical equipment companies in the U.S. also provide a high potential for market. Moreover, factors, such as the strict government regulations regarding carbon emissions and pollution levels and rising popularity and adoption of EVs that require the deployment of supporting infrastructure are estimated to propel U.S. EVCI market growth.

On the other hand, high costs of infrastructure and initial set-up are emerging may hamper the growth. Costs incurred for research & development activities are highly significant since they require a dedicated workforce. Overall, the need for financial and human resources to develop innovative charging equipment is expected to restrain market growth during the forecast period.

Charger Type Insights

Based on charger type, the U.S. electric vehicle charging infrastructure market can be segmented into slow and fast chargers. The fast charger segment is anticipated to register a CAGR of 39.2% by 2025 owing to consumers preferring EVs for long-distance travel. The extensive deployment of infrastructure for charging EVs by the corporate sector is expected to drive the demand for fast chargers in the U.S. over the forecast period. On the other hand, the slow charger segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR from 2019 to 2025. This growth is attributed to the rising popularity of EVs and the inclination of users toward buying plug-in hybrid EVs.

Connector Insights

Based on connector type, the market can be segmented into CHAdeMO, Combined Charging System (CCS), and others. CCS expected to emerge as the largest as well as fastest-growing segment over the forecast period. This is mainly due to the increasing electrification and support by major manufacturers and OEMs, including Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company, General Motor Company and Volkswagen. A CCS connector supports slow and fast charging since it uses the Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) protocol that is a part of smart grid protocols.

CHAdeMO segment is also expected to witness rapid growth during the forecast years owing to the easy integration of CHAdeMO with the smart grid infrastructure and its bi-directional charging capability. In addition, research & development initiatives and investments by EV manufacturers, such as Nissan Motor Co. Ltd and Mitsubishi Motors Corporation, for developing DC fast charging networks to support long-range travel is expected to drive the demand for CHAdeMO in the years to come.

Application Insights

Based on application, the market is bifurcated into residential and commercial. The commercial segment is expected to lead the U.S. market and maintain a dominant position till 2025. Government initiatives and funding for the installation of publicly accessible EV charging stations and active participation from EV manufacturers are expected to drive the segment.

U.S. Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure (EVCI) Market

Residential application is estimated to emerge as the fastest-growing segment from 2019 to 2025. Since users prefer charging their vehicles at home owing to ease and convenience, they opt for AC charging stations for EVs, as the cost of installation is reasonably low as compared to DC charging stations. Hence, DC charging stations have a lower adoption rate in the residential segment due to significant costs involved in their installation.

U.S. Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Market Share Insights

Some of the key companies in the market include ChargePoint, Inc.; AeroVironment Inc.; General Electric Company; Leviton Manufacturing Co., Inc.; SemaConnect, Inc.; Tesla, Inc.; and ClipperCreek, Inc.

Acquisition and partnerships are the key strategies undertaken by companies to expand their geographic presence in prominent markets. For instance, in October 2018, ChargePoint, Inc. partnered with Total Gas & Power, a subsidiary of Total SA. Through the partnership agreement, ChargePoint, Inc. would provide EV charging solutions across the U.K.

In January 2018, AeroVironment Inc. launched TurboDX, a next-generation EV charging solution. TurboDX provides advanced, user-friendly features to ensure a smart-charging experience for residential, as well as commercial, applications.
