By 2030, Mobile EV Chargers Are Expected to Account for 2% of the $60B Overall EV Charger Market

Mobile EV charging solutions can close gaps in charging services and extend the useful life of EV batteries

May 12, 2020

A new report from Guidehouse Insights examines the market for mobile electric vehicle (EV) chargers, providing global forecasts for portable chargers, charging vans, and temporary chargers, through 2030.

As the EV population continues to grow and expand into new ownership cases and vehicle types, gaps and pain points with current stationary charging solutions are emerging. Mobile EV charging presents opportunities to improve the convenience of EV ownership and generate a new market for the off-take and reuse of EV batteries. For the EV charging industry, it also presents opportunities to provide new financial solutions and enhanced services to EV owners. According to a new report from Guidehouse Insights, by 2030, mobile chargers are expected to account for 2% of the $60 billion EV charger market.

“Mobile EV charging solutions are well positioned to not only close gaps in charging services, supporting EV market growth, but also extend the useful life of EV batteries, diminishing associated environmental impacts of battery production and disposal,” says Scott Shepard, senior research analyst with Guidehouse Insights.

According to the report, as industry continues to explore this area, automakers, battery suppliers, and mobile EV charger suppliers should examine how existing battery packs can become more interoperable between usage modes. This interoperability is expected to cut system costs and make offtake markets more sustainable and viable.

The report, Mobile EV Chargers, provides an assessment of the market for mobile EV chargers, including technologies, market drivers and challenges, the competitive landscape, and the extent by which the market is likely to grow over the next decade given the momentum of global EV markets. Forecasted technologies in this report include portable chargers, charging vans, and temporary chargers. Forecasts on these technologies are provided from 2020 to 2030 broken out by major global region. An executive summary of the report is available for free download on the Guidehouse Insights website.
