Solar Power Market Size to Worth Around US$ 368.63 Bn by 2030

According to Precedence Research, the global solar power market size is expected to be worth around US$ 368.63 billion by 2030 and growing at a CAGR of 7.2% from 2021 to 2030.


Tokyo, March 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global solar power market was estimated at US$ 197.23 billion in 2021. A major growth factor behind the surge of green hydrogen has been the declining costs of renewable energy which is a critical input in the production process. In the year 2022, as the penetration of renewable energy over the grid rises, green hydrogen development is also expected to grow, owing to its potential to act as long-duration and seasonal storage of the availability of fuel on demand in order to generate power. In addition, another major factor driving the solar power market is the volatile prices of the fossil fuel, requirement for dependence disassociation on fossil fuel imports from political volatility area, environmental concerns over the greenhouse gas emissions associated with fossil fuel use, government incentives, other support programs making solar power more cost competitive, and shift in consumer preference.

Market Dynamics

Drivers: Decline in prices

The competition has increased substantially among producers with the development in photovoltaic- grounded power distribution systems. Furthermore, the solar components prices differs substantially in regions of Asia-Pacific and Europe, as it is a demand oriented market. Furthermore, diminished profitability of market accession and module manufacturers stress lead to drop in the solar panels prices. In addition, shifting silver prices, which is a key solar module raw material, propels the demand for solar panel installations and aids the solar energy market growth.

Restraints: Climatic condition and geographical latitudes

The adoption of technology named PV system is marginally affected by factors like overall production, reliability, and competitiveness. In addition, total climatic conditions and geographical latitudes restrain the solar power market growth, specifically in rainfall and snowfall-prone regions.

Opportunities: Development of photovoltaic (PV) storage systems

The development of photovoltaic (PV) storehouse systems is essential to increase the capability of PV systems to replace the existing conventional sources. With the growth in PV installations demand, the espousal of storehouse grid is projected to rise, which fosters the lithium ion-powered battery demand for solar energy storehouse and increase the growth of the solar energy market.

The unformed silicon cells member is anticipated to foresee utmost growth owing to rise in installations and application in solar panels. In addition, the demand regarding copper indium gallium serenade is anticipated to increase during the cast period, owing to rise in cost-effective solar panels. Likewise, low- cost manufacturing and increase in solar modules effectiveness are projected to propel the market demand for cadmium telluride during the forthcoming time period in the market.

Challenge: Uncertainty regarding the availability of sunlight

The cost of solar PV is generally a cost effective way to supply large amounts of electricity demanded. While the solar PV electricity cost has been substantially dwindling, further dwindling is still essential for this technology to be affordable to everyone. This would impose difficulty in determining how much energy should be stored for the future use. Sunlight is easily unapproachable during the late hours of night while there's stagnant demand for electricity. A medium for effective energy storehouse and effective recovery is demanded for this reason.
