Metals In Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Market Size 2021 to 2030

Growth Factors

The surging demand for Electric Vehicles (EVs) across the world has augmented the need for charging infrastructure, which is expected to propel the consumption of metals over the forecast period. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), consumer expenditure on EVs exceeded USD 120 billion in 2020. Moreover, various initiatives by governments around the world aimed at the mitigation of carbon emissions have led to the increase in the production of EVs.

An increase in the global demand for Electric Vehicles (EVs) and favorable government policies for developing EV charging infrastructure are driving the market. The requirement for charging stations is rising in order to normalize the utilization of EVs as any other fuel-driven vehicle. This in turn has augmented investments as the EV drivers should be safeguarded that charging stations are in close proximities. This in turn is expected to augment the consumption of metals that are crucial raw materials in the charging infrastructure for EVs.

By Metal Analysis

Based on metals, the copper segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 27.0% in 2021 and this trend is expected to continue over the forecast period. Around 3.5kg of copper is used in making one charging station. Copper is used in cables, charging units, and wiring in electric panels.

Steel was the second-largest segment of the market for metals in electric vehicle charging infrastructure in 2021. Due to its low cost and superior strength, steel is preferred over aluminum for housing charging infrastructure. The CHAdeMO charging system utilizes steel for housings and many EV manufacturers including Tesla and Nissan have invested heavily in CHAdeMO, thereby driving the demand for steel over the forecast period.

Other metals include precious metals like silver and other metal alloys. The consumption of precious metals like silver in EV chargers is expected to grow at a substantial rate over the forecast period owing to its high conductivity and corrosion resistance properties.

By End-use Analysis

Based on end-use, the commercial segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 79.0% in 2021. The segment is expected to follow the same trend across the forecast period.

Rising efforts for developing stations in commercial places as overnight charging at individual homes or residential complexes are anticipated not to be adequate for long-distance journeys.

EV chargers for residential end-users have substantial growth potential as they cost less and are more convenient. The increase in global demand must be supported by strong infrastructures, resulting in the development of innovative chargers for the private segment.

By Charging Port Analysis

The level 3 segment dominated the metals in electric vehicle charging infrastructure market and accounted for the largest revenue share of over 79.0% in 2021. The segment is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. 

The increased adoption of EVs and the preference of vehicle owners to charge vehicles at their homes are the factors leading to the increase in demand for level 1 chargers. 

Level 2 chargers are mostly used for daily charging purposes, and they are usually installed at workplaces, residential complexes, and other establishments.

By Regional Analysis

Asia Pacific dominated the market for metals in electric vehicle charging infrastructure and held the largest revenue share of over 55.0% in 2021. Growing demand for EVs in this region is anticipated to benefit market growth.

In North America, the market for metals in electric vehicle charging infrastructure is anticipated to register a CAGR of 22.1%, in terms of revenue, over the forecast period.

With the presence of well-established automobile manufacturers such as Tesla, Nissan, and Ford and suitable infrastructure for producing EVs, market growth is expected from this region.

In Europe, the market accounted for the second-largest revenue share in 2021, which is attributable to the widespread adoption of EVs in the region. leading automakers across Europe, including Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW), Daimler AG, Groupe Renault, and Volkswagen have collaborated to set up a series of fast electric vehicle chargers in the region, which is further anticipated to augment metals demand over the coming years.
