Key Market Trends Fueling Growth

The global electricity demand has experienced significant growth, increasing by 8% in 2021 to over 8300 TWh compared to 2020. Emerging economies, particularly in Asia, are driving this demand due to their rapid economic growth and increasing population. Traditional energy sources, such as coal, natural gas, and oil, have dominated electricity generation, accounting for 61% of the total mix in 2018. However, the reliance on these sources has led to a rise in carbon emissions, with coal accounting for the largest share at 38%. Moreover, a significant population in Asian and African countries relies on fuels like kerosene and coal for cooking, resulting in environmental pollution and health issues. The International Energy Agency (IEA) reports that 8.70 million people in South Africa and 703.20 million people in India lack access to clean cooking facilities. The high cost of conventional sources of electricity and lighting, such as diesel and kerosene, has increased the demand for off-grid solar appliances. Solar power, a clean energy technology, is gaining popularity due to its zero carbon emissions and potential to provide an alternative to high-cost conventional sources. The rising price of oil and gas is also driving the cost of derived products like kerosene, leading to increased government spending and household expenses. As a result, the demand for solar PV systems is expected to grow, providing opportunities for the solar central inverter market during the forecast period.

The Solar Central Inverters market is witnessing significant growth, particularly in commercial buildings and renewable energy plants. Solar power transmission for reliable and continuous power supply is a top trend. String Inverters and Micro Inverters are popular choices for Solar Photovoltaic Systems. Utility-scale projects require Grid Connection, Maximum Power Point Tracking, and Low-Frequency Transformers. Input Voltage levels and BOS Components are key considerations. Monolithic and Modular Inverters offer flexibility. Multi-MPPT Trackers and Master-Slave Control Approach ensure optimal performance. Electric Grid Standards, Energy Storage Systems, and Government Efforts are driving decarbonization and electricity demand. Solar Energy is a clean alternative to polluting fossil fuels in the face of industrialization and increasing renewable energy capacity. Solar Potential, Grid Parity, Solar Irradiance, and Grid Frequency are crucial factors. Direct Current and Alternating Current systems operate at Utility Frequency. Photovoltaic Solar Panels convert sunlight into electricity, while Microgrids ensure local power supply.

  • The global solar central inverters market is expected to face challenges due to the dominance of non-renewable sources of electricity generation, particularly fossil fuels and hydropower. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), approximately 72% of the world's electricity was generated from non-renewable sources in 2021, with coal and gas accounting for significant increases of 9.3% and 10.4% respectively. Several countries continue to rely on fossil fuels due to their abundant availability and lower cost of generation compared to renewable sources. For instance, Indonesia, which aims to achieve 23% of its renewable energy target by 2025, will still rely heavily on coal for electricity generation in the near term. Moreover, the decline in the cost of natural gas in recent years has encouraged its use in power generation, posing a challenge to solar power. In the US, shale gas production has reached record highs, while Middle Eastern countries with substantial crude oil and natural gas reserves have not reduced production output, leading to a continuous decline in oil and gas prices. These factors make non-renewable sources of energy more economically viable, hindering the demand for solar power generation and, in turn, the growth of the global solar central inverters market during the forecast period.
  • The Solar Central Inverters Market is experiencing significant growth due to increasing demand for solar power in various sectors. Large buildings and residential areas are adopting solar power for power backup and environmental concerns. Infrastructural development, home loans, and home renovation projects are also driving the market. Business owners are investing in solar power for economic-friendly energy solutions. Hot prone regions and rural electrification projects are key areas of focus. Government support and expansion activities are boosting the market. New product innovations, such as off-grid inverters and large-sized solar inverters with panel level monitoring, are addressing the needs of different applications. The PV inverter market caters to both on-grid and off-grid solar power systems. On-grid solar inverters convert DC power from solar panels into AC power for use by home appliances and utilities applications. In the utilities segment, solar parks and power plants are major consumers of solar inverters. Single phase and three phase inverters cater to residential and utilities users respectively. Challenges such as heat loss and power transmission in the transmission sector are being addressed through technological advancements. The market is expected to continue growing due to increasing power supply needs and the shift towards renewable energy.
