Technology, Policy Upgrades, and Infrastructure Support are Major Market Trends

Increasing numbers of grid-connected rooftop solar projects as part of the state-wise targets, which comprise city-wise and sector-wise targets, substantiate the market growth. Under the grid-connected rooftop solar PV program, growing numbers of large solar plants are installed in residential sectors, boosting the solar rooftop market share.

Also, the rising installation of rooftop solar systems with and without subsidy in residential and commercial/industrial structures creates vast opportunities. The governments make it compulsory for its new buildings to have rooftop solar by changing building bylaws, which is a major growth driver. Additional factors influencing the market rise include technological advancements that help develop novel properties in components like high durability, cost efficiency, and low maintenance.

High Costs Associated with Installation and Maintenance Restrict Market Growth. 

Solar rooftop installations require high initial investments. Besides, high costs associated with the maintenance of solar rooftops hamper the market growth. Simultaneously, the lack of awareness of solar roofing benefits impedes the growth of the market. 

Nevertheless, increasing focus and government support for the development of renewable energy technology would support the market growth throughout the assessment period, leading to advancements in solar technology.

COVID 19 Impacts

The onset of COVID 19 impacted the solar rooftop industry in two ways. On one side, due to the coronavirus-driven lockdowns, industry players faced several challenges, such as obtaining key raw materials, disrupted supply chains, logistic issues in delivering end products, and attracting workers from quarantines. 

On the other hand, the energy demand remained robust amid coronavirus crises, which made the renewable energy market growing steadily. The solar rooftop market is projected to pick up further in 2021 and beyond.
