Market Overview

The global electric vehicle charging cables market generated around $250 million revenue in 2020, and it is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period (2021–2030). The key factors responsible for the growth of the market are the increasing adoption of EVs, rising concerns regarding air pollution, and development of the public EV charging infrastructure.

The COVID-19 pandemic, particularly due to the imposition of multiple lockdowns, has had a negative impact on the global market for electric vehicle charging cables. COVID-19 had a significant impact on the supply chain and product demand in the automotive sector. Various automotive corporations have stopped production because of the various restrictions imposed by governments. Owing to this, the global EV industry is facing a slowdown, in turn, decreasing the demand for charging cables.

Electric Vehicle Charging Cables Market Outlook 

Alternative Current (AC) Charging Dominates Electric Vehicle Charging Cables Market

EVs can be charged via the AC and direct current (DC) power supply, of which AC cables dominated the market in 2020. This can be attributed to the increasing installation of the charging infrastructure in private settings. 

Straight Cables Preferred Over Coiled Cables

The market is categorized into straight and coiled, based on cable shape. The straight category was the higher revenue generator in 2020, and it is expected to dominate the industry during the forecast period. Lower cost, low maintenance, and ease of installation are the key factors driving the adoption of straight cables.

Asia-Pacific (APAC) Dominates Global Market for Electric Vehicle Charging Cables

Geographically, APAC dominated the market in 2020, with China being the major revenue contributor. Further, Japan and South Korea would act as the future epicenters of the industry growth in the region. The government in these countries is offering regulatory and financial support to the manufacturers and buyers of EVs, which is assisting in EV charging station development.

Further, the region is expected to lead the market, in terms of growth rate, during the forecast period. The various projects introduced by the regional governments to increase the number of public charging stations will propel the growth of the electric vehicle charging cables market here.
