An EV start-up company in Delhi, India, Ather Energy, also announced offering its fast-charging connector to boost the adoption of EVs. The company aims to set the scene for Interpolarable two-wheeler fast charging platform. The charger, furthermore, is designed by the company that has a combination of both AC and DC charging with the same connector. The size of the charger is suitable for two-wheelers and three-wheelers with control and proximity pilot.

Apart from this, partnerships and mergers are other major trends followed among the market players. Volta, an EV charging solutions provider has recently announced its partnership with Six Flags Entertainment, an American amusement park corporation. The partnership aims to make availability of EV chargers for its guests of six flag corporations at the park. The amusement corporation aims to modernize the experience of its guests by providing this technology accessible along with committing to environmental sustainability. Six flags will be the first amusement organization equipped with Volta charging stations.

DC chargers for electric vehicles are growing as the latest innovation in the automotive industry. The fast DC charging station is assisting both the industry players as well as consumers to better services and advantages. As the companies are coming up with new technologies and initiatives, there are different types of fast DC chargers available in the market. The technology, moreover, is highly evolving, owing to which an array of trends are getting identified by the market players. The regulations based on vehicle emission are increasing the adoption of EVs. Also, people nowadays are increasingly getting concerns regarding increasing impacts on the planet, thereby switching towards green technologies. All these aspects, therefore, are bringing new opportunities along with modifying charging infrastructure across the world. 

Apart from EVs, DC chargers are also getting high demand from the consumer electronics sector. And the government bodies are also coming forward to support fast charging infrastructures. However, the factors such as high cost associated with DC charger and related facilities creates challenges for the market players to a certain extent. Nevertheless, the high investments for smart cities that are leading to widening the adoption of easier solutions including EV chargers. At the same time, the market players are introducing innovations and are leading to accept new technologies for advanced solutions. The rapid charging provided by the DC charger, becoming the major driver, makes it more preferable over other options. All these aspects, moreover, are contributing to the market growth. And with further technological advancements and the adoption of new strategies the market is expected to rise even more in the coming years.
