Selbyville, Delaware, March 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

According to latest report “Solar Silicon Wafer Market By Type (Monocrystalline Wafer, Polycrystalline wafer), Application (PV Modules, Inverter, Solar Cell, Solar Racking System, Solar Battery), Regional Outlook, Price Trends, Competitive Market Share & Forecast 2027”, by Global Market Insights Inc., the market valuation of solar silicon wafer will cross $20 billion by 2027.

The solar silicon wafer market growth is credited to increasing government regulations toward greenhouse gas emissions, which have propelled the adoption of renewable energy resources majorly solar energy for electricity generation and energy conversion. For instance, in November 2019, the German federal government passed the new Climate Protection Law, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 38% by 2030, compared to 2005 levels. This ambitious goal is expected to increase the penetration of solar power plants and solar farms in the European Union, fueling the market expansion during the forecast period.

The inverter application segment in the solar silicon wafer market accounted for 3.5% of the market share in 2020 and is anticipated to witness 8.5% growth rate till 2027. The rising consumption of solar power in the residential & commercial sector across the globe will drive the demand for inverter applications in the solar industry. The large solar silicon wafer, such as 210 mm size, aids to achieve high technological and environmental benefits and high-power output of more than 600 W. In January 2021, Tesla, Inc. announced the launch of two solar invertors with 3.8 kW and 7.6 kW capacity, which have applications in residential solar appliances. These solar invertors feature two or four maximum power point trackers (MPPTs) and have energy conversion efficiency of around 97.5%. Similar product launches will boost the growth in the market. 

The North America solar silicon wafer market is projected to register 9% CAGR through 2027 driven by rising solar power plant establishments in the U.S. region. According to a December 2020 press release by the Solar Energy Industries Association, the U.S. solar energy producers installed a 3.8 GW of solar PV capacity in the third quarter of 2020. The total installed capacity in the U.S. reached around 88.9 GW in the third quarter of 2020. The exponentially increasing solar power plant installations in the region will add lucrative opportunities to regional solar silicon wafer manufacturers. Adding to this, the regional wafer manufacturers are emphasizing on expansion activities and are engaged in securing investments and funding.
