Pune, Feb. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Solar Panels Market Analysis/Solar Panels Market Outlook

The global solar panels industry is highly lucrative and predicted to witness significant growth at a healthy 20.18% CAGR over the forecast period, reveals the Market Research Future (MRFR) report. A solar panel is a panel that has been designed to absorb the rays of the sun as an energy source for generating electricity and heating. This cuts down the electricity that comes from fossil fuels via supplying the operations with renewable, clean energy from the sun. A solar panel is also known PV or photovoltaic modules as it converts sunlight directly into electricity. 

Enhancing Features that Bolster Market Growth 

As per the Market Research Future report, there are numerous factors that are propelling the solar panels market size. These include increasing environmental awareness among customers, the provision of tax rebates and government incentives to install solar panels, dramatically decreasing prices of chief components to make modules/solar cells like polysilicon and silver, growing need for electrical appliances and solar-driven vehicles, rise in the price of electricity, and the growing need for solar panels in the residential rooftop applications. Additional factors adding market growth include the growing need for renewable-based clean electricity and increasing environmental awareness. 

On the contrary, the need for huge areas of land to develop utility-scale solar power generation may limit market growth over the forecast period.

COVID-19 Analysis 

The COVID-19 outbreak has hindered the solar panels supply chain for the increasing prices of panels, with manufacturers facing material supply shortages, labor shortages, and stagnant international trading that are impacting the export market. The delayed projects owing to disruption in the supply chain will limit the market growth. The pandemic has proven to be a key challenge for the renewable power industry leading to a shortage in the supply of hardware components. Owing to the lockdown implemented by the government across the globe, the development growth and solar construction are slowing down. China is the biggest market for the generation of solar energy. The slowdown in the economic growth of the country has impacted renewable energy investment and overall generation worldwide. China leads in terms of solar PV panel production and installations of solar photovoltaic installations. The US is dependent on China for the production of solar PV. The COVID-19 outbreak is likely to impact the solar panels market revenue. 

The outbreak having begun in China resulted in the supply shortage in the United States. The manufacturers of solar panels are experiencing delays owing to a shortage of labor force and raw material, leading to delayed project schedules and shut down of businesses. The two key issues that this industry has faced include the shortage of labor to limit social contact and supply chain disruption of components like inverters and panels. Rooftop solar house owners have put huge investments on hold. Likewise, in India, the outbreak has caused delays in the procurement of inverts, panels, solar modules, and other components that is delaying the commissioning of solar projects. There has also been a fall in demand for electricity in India. All these are likely to impact the solar panels market share.
