Vehicle to Grid (V2G) Market Segment Analysis - By Industry Vertical

Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment in V2G segment is growing at a CAGR of 52.71% in the forecast period, owing to their increasing usage for connecting electric vehicle to the grid. The EVSE are the main component that connects EV to the electric grid and thus increasing trend for renewable and smart energy generation will drive the demand for EVSE components. In addition deployment of vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology is observed as an opportunity in the EVSE market. This technology enables electric vehicles to supply the stored electricity back into the electricity grid to support supply energy at times of peak demand. Moreover, The major benefit from this technology can be seen in fleet operators’ vehicles, when plugged into V2G bi-directional chargers during their idle time. The integration of this technology in the electric vehicles can offset the cost of vehicle ownership by selling power stored in the battery back to the electricity grid. Hence, V2G is being seen as the opportunity for the players operating in the EVSE.

Vehicle to Grid (V2G) Market Segment Analysis - By Geography

North America dominated the market by a market share of more than 34.5% in 2019, early adoption for new technologies and environmental awareness among the public are the key factors contributing to the market growth. Government initiative in terms of incentives offered by them to promote the electric vehicle adoption in the region. Furthermore, the auto-manufacturers in the regions are offering long-term warranty to their customers that again fuel the market growth is analysed to drive the market. In 2020, U.S. government has announced an investment of $750 million to electric-vehicle infrastructure as part of the country’s long-term goal to reduce emissions.

Vehicle to Grid (V2G) Market Drivers

Reduction in Carbon Emissions and Energy Savings

Electric vehicles mostly use batteries, and this causes a reduction in carbon emissions by giving preference to battery-operated vehicles. Increasing adoption of electric vehicles has lowered carbon emissions, thereby improving the air quality. Since V2G technology is implemented in electric vehicles, it indirectly helps reduce carbon emissions. Several regions are adopting this technology in order to reduce the emission rate. From past records, Europe has taken major initiatives in the deployment of electric vehicles and V2G technology. For instance, in September 2019, Nissan Motor Co. Ltd., a Japanese automotive giant announced to work with a French utility company  EDF Group to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles across Europe through smart charging. Similarly, countries such India, China, U.S have been investing heavily for the deployment of this technology in order to reduce the emission rate. Hence these factors are analyzed to drive the market in the forecast period 2020-2025.

Rising collaborations between companies

Manufacturers are focusing on collaborations and partnerships with other players (electric vehicle manufacturers) in order to promote vehicle-to-grid technology. In February 2019, OVO Energy Ltd announced that Mitsubishi Corporation invested in the company at an exchange of a 20% stake in the business. The company has the intention to invest the amount in an emerging market in Asia Pacific and Europe for the acceleration of intelligent energy technologies in the regions. In June 2018, Mitsubishi and Hitachi collaborated to set up a vehicle–to-grid charging network for battery electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles at several locations across Japan. This collaboration is expected to lead to the development of a sustainable business model for renewable energy and stabilization of power networks.  Such strategic partnerships by manufacturers with different car manufacturers and energy companies are augmenting the global V2G technology market.
