Solar (PV) Inverter Market Outlook - 2030

The global solar (PV) inverter market size was valued at $7.7 billion in 2020, and is expected to reach $17.9 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 8.8% from 2021 to 2030. Solar inverter is an important device in the solar system, which converts DC power flowing from solar panels to AC power. Apart from the conversion, solar inverters track voltage, allow grid connecting communication, and shutdown during emergency condition. On-grid solar inverters produce pure sine wave of AC electricity than off-grid inverters; hence, increased use of on-grid solar inverter ensures the safety and efficiency of home appliances. Solar inverters are most commonly used in residential and utilities applications, and nowadays are increasingly used in the commercial & industrial projects across the globe.

Rapid development in the renewable energy sector and easy installation of solar inverters are the key factors that drive the growth of the market during the forecast period. However, high heat loss in large sized solar inverters, high cost, and absence of panel level monitoring are the key factors that restrain the growth of the market in the upcoming years. On the contrary, increase in government initiatives and investments in the electrification of rural and remote areas are anticipated to create opportunities for key players in the solar inverter market globally.
