The state of the electric vehicle market and its charging infrastructure.
The global electric vehicle population reached 3 million units at the end of 2017, which represents approximately 0.23% of the global vehicle population. Electric vehicle producers have responded to consumer's range anxiety by increasing the available range per charge in their vehicles to more than 200 miles. However ultimately the deployment of electric vehicles will depend on the deployment of ubiquitous chargers.
Depending of the direction of mobility evolution, EV charging will have to adapt.
This report provides an analysis of the state of deployment of public and private chargers by region including the USA, Europe, China and Japan. Technology, economic and social trends are dramatically changing the paradigm upon which the automotive industry has been built, this is man piloted, user owned and mass produced. Indeed the emergence of the autonomous and shared vehicle, both for personal and commercial mobility, is changing the needs of charging infrastructure. So what charging technologies can come forward to satisfy these special needs, these are presented in this report.
The multibillion-dollar market opportunity in a complex landscape.
Overall IDTechEx electric vehicle market research estimates that the global market of electric vehicle charging infrastructure will reach a market value of more than $140 billion by 2029 with a global population of ten million public chargers and 50 million private chargers.
IDTechEx's Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure 2019-2029 report presents an overview of the state of development of technologies for electric vehicle charging including conductive, inductive, and capacitive charging among others. The report presents the different charger topologies by different levels (Level 1 to Level 3). A comprehensive overview of the main charging standards (Chademo, CCS, Tesla, China GB dtd, India Bharat std) , communication protocols and standards including an analysis of Vehicle to Grid communication interphase. We present some of the key enabling technologies such as semiconductor technology, fast charging, battery swapping and robotic charging which will have a role in new mobility paradigms.
The coverage of this report is global. This report presents a ten year market forecast (2019-2029) of electric vehicle chargers by region (Europe, China, USA and Japan) and by type of charger (public or private). We provide profiles of leading companies developing and commercialising electric vehicle charging infrastructure. As public policies have always key for electric vehicle deployment we include some of the recent highlights of policies favourable for electric vehicle charging infrastructure globally.
The EV charging infrastructure value chain will evolve as the integrating of both electric vehicles and renewable energy goes forward. Challenges and opportunities arise when this happens, as there will be increasing requirements for operating the electricity network in a smarter way. For this purpose, concepts like demand side management and key enabling technologies like energy storage will have a key role.
Our report finishes with an outlook to the future, including a promising avenue of technology development that can potentially disrupt the electric vehicle charging infrastructure industry: this is energy autonomous vehicles. What we mean by this? Not fully autonomous of course but given the increasing performance of energy harvesting technologies we foresee a future in which electric vehicles will be capable of recharging themselves by harvesting energy from the environment and therefore become less reliant on grid-based charging infrastructures.
