Macro Outlook

We expect the market for EV Charging Infrastructure to continue growing as COVID-19 restrictions are further eased in key markets and more commuters return to the roads. As the same time the global trend towards registrations of new electric vehicles remains in place. [10]

We expect the strong growth in revenues and charging sessions to continue as governments continue to incentivize electric vehicle purchases in order to meet net zero carbon emission goals. This is likely to further accelerate as purchasing bans for combustion engine cars start kicking in towards the end of the decade. [11]

We currently do not see a negative impact on the industry deriving from the war in Ukraine. On the contrary, as governments rush to achieve independence from Russian imports, further emphasis is placed on the expansion of alternative engine types such as the electric vehicle. We see no indication that Paris Agreement goals or measures will be delayed or abandoned. [12]

EVgo has partnered with Nissan, BMW and GM etc., while at the same time there is cooperation between ChargePoint and Toyota, Mercedes-Benz and Polestar. [13] There is an increasing number of partnerships with automotive manufacturers, and we expect the trend will continue. This will provide EV charging companies a stable and loyal customer base, as the driver’s charging experience is customized, optimized and integrated.
