President Joe Biden and republican leaders are negotiating on the President’s $2 trillion Infrastructure Plan. One of the biggest beneficiaries of proposal could be Electric Vehicles (EV). The plan would allocate $174 billion towards electric vehicles, “including grants and incentives for public and private entities to build a network of 500,000 charging stations by 2030.” (1)
With or without the infrastructure plan, the electric vehicle market is forecasted to experience significant growth through 2030. In a report on the sector, Deloitte predicts. (2)
“Our global EV forecast is for a compound annual growth rate of 29 per cent achieved over the next ten years: Total EV sales growing from 2.5 million in 2020 to 11.2 million in 2025, then reaching 31.1 million by 2030. EVs would secure approximately 32 per cent of the total market share for new car sales (see figure 2). Annual car sales are unlikely to reach pre-COVID-19 levels until 2024. However, the pace of recovery is forecasted to be a result of a slowdown in ICE sales; EVs will continue to have a positive trajectory during the COVID-19 recovery period and may well end up capturing a disproportionate share of the market in the short term.”
EVs and related business offer investors the opportunity to find high growth opportunities. We’ve identified five companies that are forecasted to increase sales by 90% or more in 2022 compared to 2021.
