COVID-19 Impact on EV and EV Infrastructure Market

Post COVID-19, the global electric vehicle and electric vehicle infrastructure market size is projected to reach 4.18 million units by 2021 from an estimated 3.42 million units in 2020, at a CAGR of 22.1%. The projection for 2021 is expected to be down by 34% as compared to pre-COVID estimation.

The growing trend of greener transport is the primary factor responsible for the expected advancements in this market. Electric vehicles, including BEVs, PHEVs, and FCEVs, are expected to play a major role in the future to achieve the emission targets for different countries and de-carbonization of transportation systems around the world. OEMs worldwide are investing heavily in research & testing applications leading to continuous advancements in electric vehicles and charging solutions.

On the other hand, factors such as disruptions in the supply chain of components and automobile manufacturing plants are being shut around the world are restraining the growth of the electric vehicle market. However, the electric vehicle charging infrastructure sector has had a minimal impact from COVID-19. For instance, the Chinese government has announced stimulation packages toward boosting the development of a network of electric vehicle charging stations in China. Increased focus on EV charging infrastructure means the sector could see exponential growth in the coming years.
