Electric vehicle charging station is an component in an infrastructure that recharges electric vehicles such as plug-in electric vehicles, including electric cars, neighborhood electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids by supplying specific amount of electric energy. Although the rechargeable electric vehicles and equipment can be recharged from a domestic wall socket, electric vehicle charging stations support faster charging at higher voltages and currents than are available from residential Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSEs).
The electric vehicle charging station market has been experiencing massive growth in the recent years due to rising need to reduce carbon emissions across the globe and government subsidies and incentives promoting production of electric vehicles. The increasing use of electric vehicles in parks, zoo’s, and other monuments is boosting the demand and adoption of electric vehicles, resulting into growth in electric vehicle charging stations. However, high initial cost and short range of electric vehicles is expected to suppress the market growth. Also, lack of standardization within electric vehicle charging is expected to restrain the market growth. Heavy investments from automaker in electric vehicles and need for cost effective charging stations is expected to create new opportunities for the companies operating in electric vehicle charging stations market.
