Technological and Market Trends are Influencing the On-Board Charger Market

On-Board Charger Market

Due to a sharp increase in the pollution levels in the past decade, numerous governments around the world are actively promoting the adoption of electric vehicles. The demand for EVs is further driven by stringent regulations pertaining to emissions, environmental degradation, and the impending requirement for energy efficient systems. In addition, global warming and escalating pollution levels are some of the alarming environmental concerns that have significantly encouraged the adoption of electric vehicles in the market. These EVs are equipped with technologically advanced batteries.

On-board charger (OBC), a crucial component in an electric vehicle that helps in managing the flow of energy from a grid to the battery inside the vehicle. These on-board chargers convert AC input generated by the power source and converts it into DC output for charging the battery of the vehicle. Owing to the need for high charging efficiency, good heat dissipation effect, and a high-power density, there is a surge in the demand for compact and lightweight OBCs.

Based on the market intelligence published by BIS Research titled “Global On-Board Charger Market — Analysis and Forecast, 2019–2029,” the on-board charger market, in terms of volume, accounted for 2,125.1 million units in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 21.75%, during the forecast period 2019–2029. The market is projected to reach 22,464.7 million units by 2029.

The on-board charger market is influenced by various technological and market trends.
