Impact of COVID-19 on the electric vehicle charging stations market
Among the most exposed verticals to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, the automotive & transportation industry is currently facing unprecedented uncertainty. The COVID-19 is projected to dramatically affect the supply chain and the market for goods in the automotive sector. The concern of the industry has shifted from focusing on China's supply chain disruption to the overall slump in demand for automotive products. Commercial vehicle demand is expected to plummet with all non-essential services being shut down. Furthermore, shifts in consumer purchasing behavior due to uncertainty surrounding the pandemic may have significant consequences for the industry's near-future growth. Meanwhile, shortfall and cash crunch have already affected fleet operators' sales, which is expected to widen further in the coming months.
However, the electric vehicle production seems to be somewhat less affected by the pandemic as predicted production levels for EVs in 2020 are expected to be more or less similar to that in 2019. As a result, the demand for EV infrastructure is not expected to be significantly disrupted due to the current pandemic, since electric vehicles and its associated charging infrastructure and sales originates from China, which has recovered from the pandemic to sustain its global dominance in terms of EV production. The Chinese government has also announced stimulus packages toward boosting the development of a network of electric vehicle charging stations.
The electric vehicle adoption rate is growing, and many countries across the globe are investing heavily in research and development. Countries such as Canada, Australia, India, the Netherlands, and Germany have launched numerous programs to promote the adoption of electric vehicles. The government incentive programs for the future would assist the energy industry to solve the economic crisis triggered by COVID-19 through significant investments in charging facilities. Hence, most of the governments in these regions have used rehabilitation of infrastructure as an economic stimulus during COVID-19.
The global electric vehicle charging stations market study presents historical market data in terms of value and volume (2018 and 2019), estimated current data (2020), and forecasts for 2027. The market is segmented on the basis of type, component, bus charging infrastructure, Connector, installation, and end-user. The study also evaluates industry competitors and analyses the market at the country level.
Based on the charging station type, the plug-in charging stations segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the overall electric vehicle charging stations market in 2020. The growth in this segment is mainly driven by the government and automakers initiatives to expand the level 3 plug-in charging station infrastructure.
