According to a report from S&P Global Mobility, the current charging infrastructure in the US is inadequate for supporting a rapidly expanding electric vehicle market. Even when home charging is considered, to properly match forecasted sales demand, the United States will need to see the number of EV chargers quadruple between 2022 and 2025, and grow more than eight-fold by 2030, according to S&P Global Mobility forecasts.

The report estimates that there are about 126,500 Level 2 and 20,431 DC fast charging stations in the US today, plus another 16,822 Tesla Superchargers and Tesla destination chargers. The good news is that the number of chargers grew more in 2022 than in the preceding three years combined. As more and more new EVs are expected to be released in the coming years, the market for charging is primed for significant growth.
