Power Inverter Market

Power inverters are electric devices that transform direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC). Unlike generators, power inverters offer low operating costs and eliminate the inconvenience of using change-over switches. Owing to these characteristics, they are used to operate several tools, household appliances, and other electrical products. Power inverters are available in a variety of sizes, types, and power ranges as per the varied consumer needs and preferences. Some of these variants include modified sine wave power inverters, plug-in grid tie power inverters, and solar power inverters.

An increase in the demand for electricity generated by renewable energy sources has fueled the development of the power inverter. The rapidly rising market share of renewable energy in the power production industry has fueled the need for power inverters. Regulations to support the development of renewable power plants have been changed as a result of the pandemic breakout. A number of objectives have been established by the major industrialized and developing countries to attain zero emissions by 2050, which will support the expansion of the solar, wind, and electric vehicle sectors. The IEA predicts that in 2022, the market for renewable energy will have grown by more than 10%. Renewable energy has seen a promising increase in recent years, as a result, the power sector's global carbon emissions have somewhat decreased. 2019 saw the installation of a record 295 gigawatts of new renewable energy capacity worldwide. The abovementioned factors are expected to drive the power inverter market's global expansion.

A power inverter's price is surprisingly high given how short its lifespan is. Since power inverters normally cost between $1,000 and $2,000, substantial usage of them, especially in renewable energy installations, will require a sizable investment. Energy waste during storage and consumption and an increase in the price of electricity for residential consumers are further disadvantages that hinder market expansion. Long-term use of power inverters causes battery degeneration. Therefore, it is projected that the need for high starting costs and a number of disadvantages related to the usage of power inverters would constrain the growth of the market for power inverters.

A rooftop photovoltaic system, a type of electrical installation setup positioned on the roof, converts solar energy into electricity. These solutions help a building within an existing distribution network meet its energy demands. When AC power is required, a power inverter converts the DC energy generated by PV systems into AC since it is stored in batteries. In order to offset some of the rising costs of power, there is an increasing demand for rooftop solar systems in residential buildings as more household appliances that utilize electricity become accessible. During the projected period, the aforementioned aspect is anticipated to offer lucrative prospects for the power inverter market growth.

As these devices are positioned on a rooftop where temperatures may exceed 140°F, reliability is the solar industry's greatest hurdle and a must for its long-term survival. Solar panel inverters normally need to be replaced at least once throughout the course of the panel's lifetime and typically last between 10 and 12 years. The safe and effective operation of solar panels depends on power inverters. Increased lifespan can benefit a solar system's price, performance, and ability to operate more affordably. During the projected period, the abovementioned factor is anticipated to hamper market growth for power inverters.

The power inverter is the most important part of an electric car, which, under ideal circumstances, transforms battery DC power into AC power for the electric motors. Inverter manufacturers have enhanced inverter capabilities to manage energy, from both sources in response to the rising concern among automakers to optimize energy use in automobiles (i.e., battery and motor). The manufacture of conventional-engine cars is being gradually replaced by hybrid and electric vehicles as a result of increasingly strict pollution regulations across the world. In order to encourage the purchase of electric vehicles in their individual nations, governments have also introduced incentives including reduced vehicle taxes, bonus payments, and premiums.
