Increasing sale of electric vehicles to drive the procurement need for electric vehicle charging connectors

EV Charging Connector Category Intelligence

The global electric vehicle charging connecter market is expected to witness a boost as fuel prices are rising across the world. Electric vehicles have become the most obvious alternative for both consumer and automotive manufacturers. The global sales of electric vehicles in 2020 have crossed a 2 million mark despite the Covid-19 pandemic. Moreover, the sales are expected to increase by 20% to 30% in 2021. APAC and Europe are leading the market with 56% and 28% share respectively followed by North America (16%). This growth is majorly propelled by the favorable government policies in many countries. For instance, Chinese regulations enable the automakers in the country to meet their annual new vehicle efficiency standards by purchasing emissions credits that are generated by the sale of EVs, with the rate of credit higher for vehicles with advanced performance such as greater battery efficiency or range, but lower for plug-in hybrids.

As e-mobility continues to gain traction in both consumer and commercial markets, the role of EV charging connectors in protecting the electrical grid, vehicle functionality, and financial transactions from security breaches is becoming very important. Organizations such as UL, ISO, and IEC are working to standardize and meet these goals. Alongside protecting charging processes, safeguarding financial transactions is also important in charging infrastructure. Most EV drivers who charge on the road have to sign up in advance for charging networks to access paid chargers. Level 2 and Level 3 chargers require payment, often using membership cards that link charging networks to a financial network capable of processing credit card payments. To counter this challenge Tesla comes up with a connector pair that enables drivers to pull up to a Supercharger and plugin, instantly sharing information that allows the Supercharger to identify the specific car and link to the financial system for contactless payment. The intelligence embedded in Tesla’s proprietary connector configuration allows Tesla to set up Supercharging stations that do not have employees to manage cash or charge transactions.
