EV Charging Connector Industry Category Intelligence

The global electric vehicle charging connecter market is expected to witness a boost as fuel prices are rising across the world. Electric vehicles have become the most obvious alternative for both consumer and automotive manufacturers. The global sales of electric vehicles in 2020 have crossed a 2 million mark despite the Covid-19 pandemic. Moreover, the sales are expected to increase by 20% to 30% in 2021. APAC and Europe are leading the market with 56% and 28% share respectively followed by North America (16%). This growth is majorly propelled by the favorable government policies in many countries. For instance, Chinese regulations enable the automakers in the country to meet their annual new vehicle efficiency standards by purchasing emissions credits that are generated by the sale of EVs, with the rate of credit higher for vehicles with advanced performance such as greater battery efficiency or range, but lower for plug-in hybrids.

As e-mobility continues to gain traction in both consumer and commercial markets, the role of EV charging connectors in protecting the electrical grid, vehicle functionality, and financial transactions from security breaches is becoming very important. Organizations such as UL, ISO, and IEC are working to standardize and meet these goals. Alongside protecting charging processes, safeguarding financial transactions is also important in charging infrastructure. Most EV drivers who charge on the road have to sign up in advance for charging networks to access paid chargers. Level 2 and Level 3 chargers require payment, often using membership cards that link charging networks to a financial network capable of processing credit card payments. To counter this challenge Tesla comes up with a connector pair that enables drivers to pull up to a Supercharger and plugin, instantly sharing information that allows the Supercharger to identify the specific car and link to the financial system for contactless payment. The intelligence embedded in Tesla’s proprietary connector configuration allows Tesla to set up Supercharging stations that do not have employees to manage cash or charge transactions.

Should Cost Analysis

In the EV charging connector market procurement intelligence report, we have estimated and forecasted pricing for the key cost components. The body of the charging connector, which is majorly made up of thermoplastics, is one of the key raw materials for EV charging connector manufacturing. Other raw materials like copper, brass, and stainless steel also hold a significant cost-share in connector manufacturing. The overall raw material cost accounted for 11% of the overall manufacturing cost. The price of thermo-plastic has witnessed a slow growth over the last five years and it is expected to continue the trend during the forecast period. Hence, the impact of price disruption is mild to nil for EV charging connector manufacturing. Copper price reached its peak in 2017-2018, since then it has slowly declined and in 2020, this drop is fueled by Covid-19. Overhead costs (89%) like labor cost and energy cost, are the major cost component in EV charging connector manufacturing. On average, the cost of labor is witnessing an increase due to trends of market correction in salaries. However, the labor charges vary significantly from one region to another. Therefore, opting for sourcing options from LCC countries could result in a reduction in costs.

Rate Benchmarking

The type and voltage of the connectors are some of the most important aspects while analyzing the rate benchmarking of an EV charging connector. In the EV charging connector market procurement intelligence report, we have analyzed the rates of CHAdeMO, CCS, and Type 2 EV charging connectors by using rate benchmarking analysis. CHAdeMO comes with 50kw and 100kw power ratings, CCS comes with 50kw, 150kw, and 350kw power ratings, Type 2 connector comes with 150kw and 250kw power ratings. Among these, the cost of procuring CCS and Type 2 connectors is 5%-10% higher than CHAdeMO connectors. As all these connectors provide a similar range/power ratio per hour of charging, most automakers preferred a CHAdeMO type connector for their electric vehicles. Moreover, 350kw CCS connectors are very rare in the market due to their high cost, and 250kw Type 2 connectors are majorly supplied by only Tesla, creating a demand-supply gap.To gain a comprehensive understanding of the other aspects of rate benchmarking, please subscribe to our services for the complete report.

Salary Benchmarking

Labor is one of the key cost components incurred while offering a product or service. Understanding the pricing structure of salary is important for organizations in selecting the appropriate supplier and to build a good negotiation strategy. It is also an important factor in determining whether the category under focus should be outsourced or built in-house.Our electric vehicle charging connector market procurement intelligence report indicates that Tesla Senior Production Manager/Engineers earn 25%-30% higher salaries than Senior Production Manager/Engineers from other industry leaders like Bosch and TE Connectivity. However, the YoY increment rate in such companies largely depends on KRAs.

Supplier Newsletter
