The global solar panel market size was valued at around USD 146.08 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD XX by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of around 7.8% during the forecast period, 2022 – 2030. The growth of the market is attributed to the increasing demand for clean energy.

Global Solar Panel Market Outlook

Solar energy refers to radiation, heat, and light released by the sun. The amount of solar energy that the earth receives is more than the current and anticipated energy requirement of the globe. If harnessed suitably, solar energy can become a nonpolluting, renewable, and inexhaustible supply of energy. Solar panels are an assembly of photovoltaic cells, which are specialized semiconductor diode that converts solar light into direct current. These cells can convert infrared and ultraviolet radiation into direct currents. These cells are installed in a framework usually on a rooftop, where the photovoltaic cells can get direct sunlight.

Solar energy is a reliable and inexhaustible source of energy, and it is cost-effective. The sun provides limitless energy to meet all the energy needs. It does not pollute air and water. It reduces carbon emissions, as there is no need of burning any type of fuel to create solar energy. Usage of solar energy promotes energy independence, as it does not have to rely on the power grid. Investing in the installation and maintenance of solar panels can facilitate individuals in generating solar energy.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • Rising demand for clean and renewable energy is expected to drive the market during the forecast period.
  • Increasing focus on reducing carbon emission and the negative effects of electricity generation using non-renewable sources boost the market.
  • Growing government policies, programs, and incentives to promote the usage of solar panels across the globe fuel the market.
  • High installation cost of solar panels is expected to hamper the growth of the market.
  • Unreliable source of energy, that is sun or sunshine, used in solar panels is anticipated to hinder the growth of the market in the coming years.
  • Rising adoption of solar panels in remote areas for electricity offers growth opportunities to the market players.

Market Segment Insights

Thin film segment expands rapidly

On the basis of types, the market is divided into monocrystalline, polycrystalline, thin film, and others. The thin film segment is expected to hold a key market share during the forecast period, due to the durable, flexible, lightweight, and strong materials used in thin film solar panels. These factors facilitate the increasing usage of thin film solar panels in commercial and large-scale utility projects. These panels have reduced installation costs, which aids in the expansion of the segment. The crystalline segment is anticipated to register a significant CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the low weight, extended life, and low cost of silicon semiconductors used in crystalline solar panels.

Global Solar Panel Market by Types

Off-grid segment holds a key market share

In terms of grid types, the market is bifurcated into on-grid and off-grid. The off-grid segment is projected to dominate the market during the forecast period, owing to increasing energy demand from isolated locations across the globe. Increasing implementation of numerous regulatory policies to decentralize the power generation sector boosts the expansion of the off-grid segment. Low operating and maintenance cost is the key factor contributing to the expansion of the on-grid segment in the market.

Industrial segment holds a significant share

Based on applications, the market is segregated into residential, commercial, industrial, and others. The industrial segment is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period, due to the increasing demand for clean energy for the growing number of utility projects across the industrial sector. The commercial segment is anticipated to expand in the coming years, due to the rapid adoption of solar panels in offices, businesses, and other commercial buildings.

Global Solar Panel Market by Applications

Asia Pacific dominates the market

In terms of regions, the market is segmented into Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. The market in Asia Pacific is expected to register a high CAGR during the forecast period, as governments in countries such as India and China continuously promote the use of solar energy in the countries. Increasing installation of solar power projects in these countries contributes to the expansion of the market in Asia Pacific. The market in North America held a significant market share in 2021. It is projected to expand rapidly during the forecast period, due to government policies and incentives to promote solar panels across the region.
