Rise in adoption of electric vehicles owing to government initiatives

Governments of various countries are taking initiatives to reduce carbon footprints by encouraging use of electric bikes, electric vehicles, and bicycles, owing to increase in awareness toward hazardous effects of using vehicles running on fossil fuels. Moreover, governments across the globe are putting pressure on vehicle manufacturers to reduce carbon emissions caused by diesel fuel combustion and tackle greenhouse gas emissions, in turn, pushing them to invest in developing electric vehicles.

In addition, governments across the globe are supporting purchase of electric mobility, in terms of tax credits and incentives. Moreover, central governments of few countries are providing exemption from highway toll tax for electric vehicles. For instance, for faster adoption of electric vehicles, the government of India plans to lower the Goods & Service Tax (GST) on e-vehicles from 12% to 5%.

Moreover, around $2,101.5 tax exemptions will be given on loan taken for purchase of an e-mobility. Similarly, the government of South Korea has announced that it will be providing $900 million tax exemptions and subsidies for development and purchase of electric and fuel cell vehicles. Thus, increase in government support for development and purchase of electric mobility, in terms of tax credits, subsidies and incentives, is one of the major factors that propel demand for electric vehicles. Thus, rise in adoption of electric vehicles owing to government initiatives is driving the growth of the electric vehicle charging station industry during the forecast period.

High cost of electric vehicle charging infrastructure

The cost of electric vehicle charging system depends and varies according to the consumer requirement and available electrical infrastructure. However, the cost required for charging systems with level 2 and above is higher in comparison with level 1 charging systems as it consists of costly equipment. In addition, the equipment used in these charging systems are expensive as they are typically publicly mounted and come with additional features such as payment processing system, LCD screen, and tracking system, which add up to the cost of these charging stations.

Lack of standardization of current EV charging infrastructure

Governments need to standardize charging infrastructure for the development of a favorable ecosystem and an increase in the sales of electric vehicles. Several countries use different standards for fast charging. Japan uses CHAdeMO; Europe, the U.S., and South Korea use CCS; and China uses GB/T. The Indian government has mandated the installation of both CHAdeMO and CCS methods since India has not reached standardization in fast charging methods. Though, this mandate increased the installation cost of charging stations, and hence, in 2019, the government changed the guidelines and allowed charging station developers to choose the method they prefer. The U.S.-based electric car maker Tesla uses high-performance superchargers that are unique to Tesla and cannot be used for other electric vehicles. Thus, lack of standardization across countries may impact the installation of charging stations and hamper the growth of the electric vehicle charging station market.
