Strategic Analysis of the Global Market for Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure

Strategic Analysis of the Global Market for Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure

Currently, 4 different standards are being used by OEMs for DC charging, namely, CCS (1 and 2), CHAdeMO, and Tesla. CCS is used by more than 90% of German automakers, CHAdeMO has been adopted by Japanese OEMs, and Tesla is a proprietary charging standard for Tesla cars. The focus is on standardization and interoperability in the form of associations and partnerships, which will boost the market by implementing standardized business models across international borders. A standard has been approved across different geographies. The United States follows Combo Connector Standard (CCS) – 1 and Europe follows CCS – 2. CCS works for both AC and DC charging and has been adopted by over 70% of the OEMs in the EV industry. The Middle East has adopted the European standard type 2 connector for AC charging; however, the introduction of a combined charging system is still being debated. In terms of DC charging, CHAdeMO charging stations are being installed.
