Solar Components Recycling Market

The global solar components recycling market size is slated to enter a period of speedy expansion, observes Fortune Business Insights in its report, titled " Solar Components Recycling Market, 2022-2029”.

Steadily High Adoption of Solar amid COVID-19 Pandemic to Power the Market

While fossil fuel-driven energy demand has plummeted during the COVID-19 pandemic, the adoption of renewables, especially solar, has remained steadfastly resilient. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), electricity generation from renewables rose by almost 3% in the first quarter of 2020, principally driven by the completion of solar PV and wind projects in 2019. Moreover, the IEA forecasted that the expansion of solar, hydro, and wind will accelerate renewable electricity generation by 5% in 2020. Solar components recycling technologies will assume prime significance in this scenario as solar power systems consist of various materials, all of which can be recycled, individually or collectively, making solar energy production even more sustainable in the long run.

Development of New Solar Recycling Technologies to Foster Growth

The growing concerns surrounding the disposal and recycling of discarded solar components have led to the development of novel methods that have found commercial footing in the solar industry. For example, chemical etching is a commercially used solar component recycling technology that can efficiently recover high-purity materials from panels. Similarly, the dry and wet mechanical process has also gained popularity as the method involves no process chemicals, has low energy requirements, and the equipment required to carry out the process is widely available. Besides these commercial mechanisms, there are several other solutions that are being intensively researched. Electro-thermal heating, for instance, can facilitate the easy removal of glass, although the process is considered slow. Pyrolysis is another method being researched as it allows a cost-effective industrial recycling process. Together, these path-breaking technologies will propel the solar components recycling market growth in the approaching decade.
