A connector is something that is used to provide electrical energy to the battery pack from the charging station. The battery pack receives electricity from the charging station through a charging connector. A charging connector resembles a charging cable used to charge a mobile phone in many ways. A mobile phone charging cable features both a wall connector and a phone side connector. Similarly, an electric vehicle's battery pack's charging connector has a vehicle-side connector and a charger plug connector. The vast majority of electric vehicle charging stations worldwide are of the Grid-to-Vehicle (G2V) variety, which allows for only a single direction of charge transfer.
Europe Electric Vehicle Connectors Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, opportunities, restraints, and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:
Rapid Penetration of EV & HEV
The EV industry has been showing enormous growth over the years owing to rising demand for electric vehicles almost in every region. Furthermore, major players in the electric vehicles market such as Tesla, BMW Group, Nissan Motor Corporation, Toyota Motor Corporation, Volkswagen AG, General Motors, Daimler AG, Energica Motor Company S.P.A., BYD Company Motors, and Ford Motors Company are focusing on expanding their business operations in emerging countries such as China, India, and others. Rapid penetration of EV/HEV globally is fuelling the Europe electric vehicle connectors market as EV connectors act as an EV coupler with a charging pole of the station required for power transmission. The connectors help establish the connection of the battery of an EV with the charging point of the station.
Increasing Investment In Charging Network By Key Players
Creating an accessible public charging network will be essential to achieve widespread EV adoption. Public charging is vital for EV consumers who live in multi-unit complexes or those without a private driveway. Additionally, EV owners will require charging their vehicles along highways and driveways to drive longer distances and charge along the way. Expected future battery improvements and increasing investment in charging networks by key players are expected to act as drivers for the Europe electric vehicle connectors market. Other than government initiatives and subsidiaries to install EV charging stations, key players in the electric vehicle (EV) market are also investing heavily in building a charging network in regions where the sales are high.
Advancement and Development In Electric Vehicle Connectors
The development and advancement of EV connectors are increasing at a rapid rate. This is basically due to meeting the present demands of high-speed EV charging and the ability to charge from both sources of electricity, AC and DC, from the EV owners. The rapid advancement and development in the EV connector are expected to boost the growth of the Europe electric vehicle connectors market growth.
Increasing Demand for V2X Solutions
As the EV market is expanding, demand is increasing for vehicle-to-everything (V2X) charging connector solutions. As EV adoption continues to grow, powerful connectors that can support EV charging will play a key role in both the development of the future automotive landscape, as well as contribute to the grid and residential energy systems. Thus, the increasing demand for V2X solutions is expected to increase the EV connector applications and use in EV and its allied sectors providing an opportunity for the Europe electric vehicle connectors market.
- High Cost Associated With EV Connectors
The importance of connectors is increasing as the EV/HEV is increasing on the road across the globe. It is an important component in EV and EV charging as electric vehicles are recharged by electricity. However, the high cost associated with the EV connectors is a major restraining factor for the growth of the Europe electric vehicle connectors market.
COVID-19 Impact on Europe Electric Vehicle Connectors Market
COVID-19 created a major impact on various industries as almost every country has opted for the shutdown of every facility except the ones dealing in the essential goods segment. The government has taken some strict actions, such as the shutdown of facilities and sale of non-essential goods, blocked international trade, and many more, to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The only business which is dealing with this pandemic situation is the essential services that are allowed to open and run the processes.
COVID-19 highly impacted the transportation of the public. During social distancing, travellers were asked to avoid travel unless it's completely necessary. Also, the behaviour of individuals has certainly changed during the pandemic, which has led to a decrease in the sale of automotive vehicles. The pandemic brought a huge drop in sales for electric vehicles as the lockdown prevailed in most of the regions and, in turn, dropped down for charging stations and thus the sale of EV connectors. The lockdown led manufacturers and consumers to completely stop the processes for a few months. The demand for electric vehicle connectors faced a drastic downfall due to the shutdown of various automobile, transport, and electronics industry. However, things are getting normal day by day. EV connectors growth is now obsolete and growing at a rapid pace.
Manufacturers are making various strategic decisions to meet the growing demand in the COVID-19 period. The players were involved in strategic activities such as partnerships, collaborations, acquisitions, and others to improve the technology involved in the Europe electric vehicle connectors market. The companies will bring advanced and accurate solutions to the market. In addition, the government initiatives to boost EV adoption and enhance EV infrastructure across countries have led to the market's growth.
