Electric Vehicle Company Onboards Independent Consultant for Market Research Projects

The Client

An innovative technology company that’s shaping the future of commercial fleet operations by assembling a synergistic ecosystem of subsidiaries and investments across the three key pillars of electric vehicles (EV): vehicles, charging, and energy. With cutting-edge proven solutions, they’re reducing the total cost of ownership for fleet operators, together with harmful greenhouse gas emissions.

The Situation

In a constantly evolving EV market, the client required market research expertise in market sizing/competitive analysis to assemble a detailed analysis of the electric vehicle charging infrastructure industry. Their key focus was to achieve a detailed competitive analysis, as the increased demand for EVs has driven increased investments and new disruptors are entering the fray.

The Solution

The client’s dedicated Graphite account executive leveraged Graphite’s proprietary technology to filter through over 180 highly vetted independent market research consultants on Graphite to present a shortlist of four candidates who met the client’s specific requirements.


The client used Graphite to onboard an independent consultant with over 15 years of experience in finance and strategy. Through this initiative, the client was able to achieve detailed insights on the existing players providing electric vehicle charging infrastructure, which included each competitor’s strengths, weaknesses, and differentiators.

The client also received insights into the market size for EV charging infrastructure globally, especially in the U.S. and Europe. In addition, the client received data about growth drivers for the next 5-10 years. Based on the great results from the project, the client re-onboarded the independent expert for additional projects.
