Market driver: range anxiety among the end-users
Since 2014, the popularity of EVs has been increasing exceptionally. But, the consumers still have a psychological fear of “range anxiety” as drivers fear getting stranded because of insufficient charge in the battery. As a result, the government bodies and the OEMs are concentrating on improving EV charger infrastructure to reduce the range anxiety of consumers. Consequently, the OEMs and EV charger service providers are spending substantially on the infrastructural development of the EV charger services.

Market trend: increased installation of DC fast charging station
Range anxiety is the primary concern that is hindering the adoption of EVs. The major difference between EVs and ICE vehicles is the amount of time and effort required to refuel them. In case of EV, even adding 80 miles of the average mile driven in a single charge can take a day if the EV is not charged through 240-volt level 2 charging station. The 240-volt level 2 charging station can also take almost 8 hours to fully charge the EV. This is a serious concern restricting the adoption of EVs. As a result, there is a growing need for DC fast charging station, which can reduce the range anxiety of the end consumers.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for automotive services research, “DC fast charging station surpass level 1 and level 2 charging station and can fully charge EVs within 20 mins. The electric output range of DC fast charging station ranges between 50kW-120kW. At present, most of the modern EVs have the capability to be equipped with DC quick charge. In Japan, it is estimated that there are more than 6,000 DC quick charge stations that clearly signifies the increase in DC fast charging stations to reduce the range anxiety of the consumers.”
Market challenge: high cost of ownership for EVs compared with ICE vehicles
The total cost of ownership of EVs is more than that for ICE vehicles. This is due to the additional high-capacity batteries used in EVs along with the use of advanced electronic components and design considerations. The cost of EVs depends on range, hours of use, fuel cost, and government subsidies. The after-sales cost such as servicing of EV components is high because of the immature local market and non-availability of EV service parts.
