Market Dynamics

Increased Solar Industry Investments by Nations Pursuing Green Energy Goals

To keep the average increase in the earth's surface temperature to around 2° Celsius, a worldwide energy shift is urgently required. As a result, the market will grow as the installation of renewable energy sources rises dramatically over the coming years. Since carbon dioxide emissions related to energy account for two-thirds of all greenhouse gases, switching from fossil fuels to low-carbon alternatives will be crucial. The size of the market has benefited by introducing new energy targets by various governments to promote a switch to sustainable energy. By the end of 2023, Brazil wants to derive 42.5% of its main energy from renewable sources.

Growing Use of Renewable Energy Sources Will Boost the Market

Considered the best feasible replacement for traditional power sources like coal and oil, renewable energy sources assist in minimizing carbon emissions and serve as an affordable supply of daily power. Over 29% of the electricity produced worldwide comes from renewable sources. It is anticipated to increase significantly and expand the market in the upcoming years. Energy production and consumption in developing nations are directly impacted by population growth. With the increased need to reduce carbon emissions, power generation from renewable sources is the best viable replacement for conventional power sources. For instance, the price of coal and oil goods is rising steadily. Another option for expanding the Solar Power Market sector is building new grids and mass storage systems by utilities to use the energy produced from renewable sources.
