Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment

The Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment Research Study delivers current market analysis plus a five year market and technology forecast. 

Electrification of Transport Demands Charging Equipment

This ARC Advisory Group research report provides a concise analysis of the market for electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE, EV Chargers).  It includes quantitative information on market size and growth across various regions and product categories.  It also includes qualitative discussions of market drivers/inhibitors as well as key strategy points suppliers should be aware of.  

Electric vehicle supply equipment includes a broad range of products for delivering electricity to electric vehicles (EVs) in a safe, controlled manner.  These range from the different classes of hardware that vary dramatically in power level and features, depending on use cases, to the software solutions that facilitate billing, access control, asset management, and energy optimization, to the installation and maintenance services needed to keep charging infrastructure working smoothly.

With the unbelievable drop in lithium-ion battery prices in recent years, long-range, affordable electric vehicles are becoming a reality.  Sales of EVs have been growing exponentially in the private consumer segment, and procurement announcements from major names such as UPS and Amazon suggest this interest is making its way into commercial areas as well.

Governments at all levels and private citizens alike are growing more aware of the risks posed by climate change and air pollution.  To this end, consumer tastes are changing and governments are introducing aggressive policy to address these challenges.  Much of this takes aim at combustion vehicles, including tightening emissions standards, raising efficiency requirements, introducing zero emission vehicle credit schemes, and outright municipal diesel bans, among others.  

Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment Strategic Issues

Demand for charging solutions has been growing with the rising adoption of electric vehicles.  The market is still in nascent form, but its future looks promising.  Various forces push and pull this exciting space, from material advances and consumer perception, to ethical concerns around component metals and energy/environmental politics.

Beyond market size estimates, this report includes surveys of users and ARC analysis of future EVSE developments. It addresses strategic questions such as:

  • Where is the market heading, and how can suppliers of EVSE best serve it?
  • How will growth vary between the different regions of the world?
  • What types of use cases will grow and deserve suppliers’ attention?
