An on-board charger (OBC) is used in an electric vehicle (EV), hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) or in plug-in hybrid vehicles to charge the traction battery. The on-board charger system equipped in electric vehicle that converts the AC input from the grid to a DC input, which further charges the battery. The electronic components used in on-board charger (OBC) provides the means to recharge the battery from the AC mains either at home or from outlets found in private or public charging stations.
The on-board charger in electric vehicles consists of the unit that includes variety of signal conditioning solutions, integrated high voltage isolation AC-DC converters, AC rectifiers, dual bridgeless power factor correction (PFC), gate drivers, error amplifiers, and many other power electronic components.
A charging station is part of the grid infrastructure installed along a street, parking lot or in a home garage; its primary purpose is to supply the power to the different types of electric vehicles (PHEV, BEV and HEV's) for charging the battery. The AC charging system is commonly an on-board charger mounted inside the vehicle, and it is connected to the grid when the vehicle is plugged in. An onboard charger is responsible for the final stage of charging the battery pack. It takes the AC power source from the EVSE and transforms the power into the required battery-charging profile.
The rising government initiatives for development of electric vehicle charging infrastructure is driving the growth of the Electric Vehicle on board charger market. However, lack of standardization of EV charging and increase in installation of fast DC chargers may restrain the growth of the Electric Vehicle on board charger market. Furthermore, the development of a two-way on-board charger (V2G) for future electric and plug-in hybrid vehicle is anticipated to create market opportunities for the Electric Vehicle on board charger market during the forecast period. Moreover, the sales of electric vehicle (EV) on board chargers have been significantly dropped during few months of coronavirus pandemic due to the decrease in demand for vehicles all over the globe. The import/export of raw material required for the EV chargers and production activities in the EV industry have been stopped during global lockdown to avoid spread of coronavirus.
The electric vehicle charging infrastructure is vital for the mass adoption of electric vehicles. Several government initiatives have been undertaken to provide EV charging stations across the world. For instance, Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) planned to deploy more than 200 EV charging stations across the country. In addition, Tata Power, an Indian electric utility company, which is a part of the Tata Group (India), supports the Indian Government's National Electric Mobility Mission, wherein the Tata Power established the first set of electric vehicles charging stations in Mumbai (India) for India’s growing EV ecosystem. Furthermore, China is stepping up their efforts to maintain its leaderships in electric vehicle adoption race by planning to invest $1.42 billion to expand the country’s charging network by 50% this year to stimulate EV deployment. In addition, increase in number of level 1 & level 2 charging station/infrastructure (AC-to-DC) has propelled the rise in demand for electric vehicles. This, in turn, is expected to drive the growth of the on-board charger equipped with them.
Global Electric Vehicle On-Board Charger Market has been segmented By Current Type, Propulsion Type, Vehicle Type, and Region. Based on Current Type, the global Electric Vehicle On-board Charger market can be bifurcated into AC and DC. The AC segment is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR in the coming years. By Propulsion Type, the Electric Vehicle On-board Charger market has been split into BEV, HEV, and PHEV. The BEV segment held a sizeable share and is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR in the coming years. By Vehicle Type, the Electric Vehicle On-board Charger market has been split into passenger cars, LCV, and HCV. The passenger cars segment held a sizeable share and is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR in the coming years.
Global Electric Vehicle On-Board Charger Market size is anticipated to register a significant CAGR of 22% between 2020 and 2026.
Global Electric Vehicle On-Board Charger Market is expected to witness moderate growth during the forecast period owing to the rising government initiatives for development of electric vehicle charging infrastructure and development of a two-way on-board charger (V2G) for future electric and plug-in hybrid vehicle. These factors are expected to drive the demand for Electric Vehicle On-board Charger in the coming years.
Based on region, the global Electric Vehicle On-board Charger market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the rest of the world. Asia-Pacific dominates the market, followed by Europe and North America. China dominated the global market in 2019, whereas India is expected to grow at a significant rate in Asia-Pacific during the forecast period. Around 55% of the market’s growth will originate from APAC during the forecast period. China and Japan are the key markets for hybrid and electric vehicle on-board charger in APAC. Market growth in this region will be slower than the growth of the market in other regions. The adoption of innovative technologies is one of the prime factors that will facilitate the hybrid and electric vehicle on-board charger market growth in APAC over the forecast period.
