Electric vehicle charging station market overview in China

The electric vehicle charging station market research report predicts the market to grow tremendously at a CAGR of about 116% by 2020. The continuous introduction of various government policies and initiatives to promote the increased use of electric vehicles will be a major electric vehicle charging station market driver in the next four years. Various government incentives and tax rebates continue to aid in the growth of the electric vehicle market, which in turn will contribute to the growth of the electric car charging station market. Furthermore, owing to the increasing awareness of climatic change and the rise in government investments, the demand for electric vehicles will increase substantially over the next few years.

The V2G (vehicle to grid) system enables the flow of power between a grid and electric drive vehicles and also provides a network to help the owner communicate with the power grid. This system also enables demand response services, which helps to augment the efficiency of the system during heavy loads. The V2G technology enables the use of EVs as distributed storage devices and also aids in saving the cost of electrical systems by providing regulation services, peak load management, and demand response and spinning reserves. This will lead to the increased adoption of V2G, which will be one of the major trends gaining traction in the electric car charging station market in the next four years.

Segmentation by mode of charging and analysis of the electric vehicle charging station market in China

  • Regular charging
