With millions of plug-in electric vehicles in use worldwide, demand for smart charging solutions has become an enormous developer and investment opportunity, according to a recently published report by IoT market research firm ON World.

“Tesla with autonomous driving has captured the imagination of new car buyers who want a complete transformation in their next vehicle purchase,” says Mareca Hatler, ON World’s research director. “This phenomenon is reminiscent of how Apple’s iPhone completely disrupted the mobile communication industry and now Tesla, Google, Apple and others are investing billions in deep learning electric vehicles that will completely revolutionize our transportation systems.”

Although 80 percent of charging is done at home, charging availability is consumers’ number one concern while driving around town as well as, increasingly, at work. ON World’s 2017 survey with 2,000 U.S. EV early adopters from the Bay Area to San Diego found that over half are concerned about the availability of public charging stations.

The residential EVSE market will make up three quarters of the installed units over the next five years but public and workplace segments will make up the majority of the revenues. There are 14 commercial EV charging market segments in North America that ON World analyzed. Installations at workplace sites increased 77 percent last year compared with 65 percent for all market segments combined. Over the next five years, the fastest growing markets will be the workplace, fleets, government and hospitality.

In 2022, there will be 1 million EVSE connectors installed in North America. EV chargers in private locations such as residences, multi-tenant buildings and workplaces will increase by 955 percent from 2016, nearly two times faster than public locations such as malls, rest stops, hotels, groceries and convenience stores.
