Vehicle electrification is one of the most impactful and long-term trends in the automotive industry. For OEMs to comply with impending carbon dioxide legislation and regional emissions targets, alternative propulsion vehicles are entering OEM product portfolios. The automotive industry is in transition away from the conventional powertrain, with a long-term aim to fully decarbonize the vehicle parc.

The IHS Markit E-Mobility Service provides insight, context, data, and analytics for the transition to an electrified powertrain and associated infrastructure.

About this report

Deployments of EV Charging Stations are critical in enabling widespread adoption of electric plugin vehicles. It is clear that DC fast charging is becoming the favored means for supporting rapid recharging for electric vehicles (EVs), removing much of the range anxiety and enabling long-distance EV travel along key transportation arteries.

This report features both the IHS Markit EV Charging Infrastructure Forecast database, and an accompanying document designed to give definitions, explain key trends, and present the market outlook for electric vehicle charging infrastructure.

In researching for this report and forecast database, IHS Markit interviewed a wide range of:

  • Electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) manufacturers
  • Charging station operators
  • Utility companies
  • Vehicle OEMs
