The global electric vehicle charging cable market was valued at $0.67 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $3.45 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 18.1% from 2022 to 2031.

An electric vehicle (EV) charging cable is the connecting cable between the charging station and the EV that supplies electricity for the recharging of EVs such as battery-electric cars (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs). These cables are made up of three parts, including a connector plugged into the vehicle, a length of wire, and another plug connected to a power source. It primarily collects AC power from the wall socket and converts it into DC power. Moreover, these charging cables have a liquid cooling system that allocates heat consistently and reduces the risk of overheating. Meanwhile, the water–glycol mixture is the most widely used coolant for such cooling systems, owing to its ease of maintenance and environmental-friendly features. In addition, there is a controller present that monitors the temperature and regulates the flow of the coolant.

Increase in adoption of electric vehicle (EV)

Electric vehicles (EVs) are experiencing a rise in popularity over the past few years as the technology has matured & costs have declined, and support for clean transportation has promoted awareness, increased charging opportunities, and facilitated EV adoption. Furthermore, rise in vehicle emission concerns and depletion of nonrenewable energy resources have attracted the attention of several governments to invest in electric vehicles. European countries are among the frontrunners in adopting electric mobility. According to the European Environment Agency, in 2020, electric car registrations surged, accounting for 11% of newly registered passenger cars in which battery electric vehicles (BEVs) accounted for 6% of total new car registrations, while plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) represented 5%. Even subsidies for purchasing electric cars have led consumers to adopt EVs. The growing inventory of EVs requires established power grids & charging terminals to ensure the smooth operation of the electric vehicles. Hence, increase in adoption of EVs worldwide is expected to drive the market growth of the EV charging cable market.

Government concerns over reducing carbon footprints

Rapid urbanization has increased the number of vehicles and traffic congestion, which led to increased air pollution. According to the Centre of Science and Environment in India, air pollution is responsible for 12.5% of all deaths in India and kills an average of 8.5 out of every 10,000 children in India before they turn five. Thus, increase in pollution levels has propelled the public to adopt measures to curb the pollution level. Hence, governments of developed countries have established initiatives to reduce vehicular and industrial pollution to reduce individual carbon footprints. Moreover, governments of various countries such as the U.S., Germany, and India is launching programs and policies related to vehicle emissions. For instance, in Maharashtra (India), the state’s new EV policy aims to have a 10% share of EVs among total vehicle registrations by 2025 to reduce vehicular emissions, as stated by the Director of Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB).

Furthermore, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized federal greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions standards for passenger cars and light trucks in the U.S. through 2026. The final standards leverage advances in clean car technology to unlock $190 billion in net benefits to Americans, including reducing climate pollution, improving public health, and saving drivers money at the pump. Hence, such government concerns & policies to reduce the carbon footprints with the adoption of EVs propels the demand for EV charging cables, thus contributing toward the electric vehicle charging cable market growth.   

Adoption of wireless EV charging technology

Wireless car charging is an enhanced version of smartphone charging with several differences. It allows an EV to automatically charge without the need for a cable. Wireless charging of EVs is expected to be driven by surge in demand for vehicle safety, increase in demand for premium segment vehicles, development of semi-autonomous & autonomous vehicles, and rise in adoption of EVs. Such improvements in wireless EV charging hamper the growth of the EV charging cables market. For instance, many EV buses use this technology for stationary EV charging in countries such as China and Germany. Similarly, Sweden developed an electrified road that can charge vehicles. This will be a significant factor affecting the market for wired EV charging.

Rocketing infrastructural developments of public EV charging station

Creating public charging infrastructure can be daunting and expensive. It involves disrupting already congested travel corridors and finding suitable charging spaces and substantial outlays to achieve a decent public EV charging infrastructure network. This needs to be supplemented with alternate solutions such as installing charging points within residential complexes, housing societies (including for visiting parking slots), shopping malls, parking lots, railway stations, offices, and small shops. Meanwhile, governments worldwide are focusing on infrastructural development for the EV landscape and thereby promoting EV use. Owing to heavy investment made by governments, public charging stations are installed in every possible public place. For instance, in April 2022, automobile manufacturer BYD India partnered with Chargezone, Volttic, and Indipro to set up charging infrastructure for EVs in India. This tie-up addresses the charging needs of the company’s electric multipurpose vehicles across multiple cities and major highways in the country. In addition, in June 2021, the Canadian Government announced an investment of about $2.35 million to install EV fast chargers in the country. Moreover, governments in countries such as China and France are subsidizing the construction of public charging stations, further expanding the EV charging cable market. Thus, rise in investments made by countries in developing public EV charging station infrastructure is expected to offer remunerative opportunities for the growth of the EV charging cable market growth during the forecast period.
