After experiencing a slump on concerns over overvaluation and a semiconductor chip shortage, electric vehicle (EV) stocks are gradually regaining investors’ attention in-part because President Biden’s $174 billion spending pitch for EVs–as part of his $2.3 trillion infrastructure spending proposal–is expected to boost the industry’s growth…
Furthermore, the demand for EVs is expected to continue increasing in the United States because Biden’s proposed legislation would boost tax credits to as much as $12,500 for EVs that are assembled in the United States. These factors, together with increasing investments to address the semiconductor chip shortage, should boost the industry’s growth in the United States. As a matter of fact, the global EV market is expected to grow at a 33.6% CAGR between 2020 – 2027, to hit an aggregate $2.5 trillion, according to Meticulous Research.
