"Basic electric vehicle supply equipment will quickly become a commodity. EVSE prices will fall by 37% through 2017 as costs are driven lower by competition from large electronics companies as well as volume production. In the face of this trend, manufacturers will integrate their equipment with external storage units, home energy management systems, and smart grid equipment to add value and increase their revenue," senior analyst John Gartner.
The study further reveals that emerging categories such as direct current (DC) and wireless charging equipment will become an important part of the EV charging station market during the next six years. The company expects that direct current charging stations will reach 115,000 units and wireless charging equipment will add up to 150,000 units installed by 2017.
