Solar Farm Market Expected to Reach $261.0 Billion by 2027

Solar Farm Market

Report Code : A10242

quote Sun-based farms are ideal for creating sun-powered energy, which, in turn, aid in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Solar farms require ample space, and the cost of constructing is considerably high. Furthermore, the maintenance of solar farms incurs additional cost. An average of 30% of the solar output is wasted due to infrastructure issues in China. One of the proposed solutions to deal with the issue is developing super grids that can take energy from solar farms and distribute it to larger metropolitan areas. The number of solar farms across the world is anticipated to grow, which acts as a potential opportunity for the expansion of the global market during the forecast period. quote

According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled “Solar Farm Market by Type, End-user Industry, and Region: Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020–2027,” The global solar farm market was valued at $61.4 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $261.0 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 19.8% from 2020 to 2027. The growth of the global solar farm market growth is driven by adoption of renewable electricity generation methods along with focus on carbon emission reduction. In addition, rise in concern from governments across the globe on increased global warming issues is expected to augment the demand for solar farms. Governments across different countries are offering new rebate and incentive schemes on installation of solar farms. Such tax incentive programs are expected to encourage commercial as well as industrial end users to install solar farms, thereby contributing toward the growth of the global market.

The global solar farm market analysis is done based on type, end-user industry, and region. On the basis of type, the market is divided into utility-scale, distributed generation, microgrids, and others. The utility-scale segment was the highest contributor in the market.   The power generated is bought to utility consumers by power purchase agreement (PPA) or often the farm can be owned by the utility. Utility businesses can then distribute the power to business or residential clients that are related to their utility grid. Surge in investments in grid expansion and integration of technologies such as UV storage are expected to drive the growth of the market.

By end-user industry, the solar farm market trends are studied across Residential, Commercial and Industrial. The commercial segment was the highest contributor to the market, and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 20.3% during the forecast period. Rise in construction activities around the world and increase in urbanization have led to shortage of electricity supply. The use of solar energy by commercial buildings such as offices, malls, and airports help reduce the load on traditional fossil fuel power plants and further decreases the carbon footprint. With growing use of solar photovoltaics, the use of solar farm is expected to rise to generate electricity in an efficient way, owing to surge in use of solar photovoltaics.

Region wise, the solar farm market size is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. Asia-Pacific was the highest revenue contributor, and is estimated to grow with a CAGR of 19.5%. The growth of the Asia-Pacific solar PV farm market is driven by increase in government initiatives, such as Akshay Urja, which involves electrification of rural areas. These initiatives are expected to increase the demand for PV energy, as governments would distribute solar lightning systems in rural areas, thereby contributing toward the growth of the market.

The key players operating in the global solar farm industry are Trina Solar, Sharp Corporation, TATA Power Solar Systems Ltd. , First Solar, Inc., BrightSource Energy, Inc., Shenzhen Topray Solar Co., Ltd., and JA Solar Holdings Co. Ltd.

Impact of COVID-19 on global solar farm market 

The outbreak of COVID-19 has led to shortage of manpower in solar industry and loss of components & gadgets. It is expected that social distancing will be followed for a couple of months, and public transport, particularly trains and buses will take time to resume their operations. This has led to disruption of supply chain of solar industry, due to the lockdown implemented by the governments.
