Solar Charge Controller Market Research, 2031

The global solar charge controller market size was valued at $1.8 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $3.4 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 6.6% from 2022 to 2031. The solar charge controller controls the flow of current and voltage from solar panels to the linked battery, preventing the battery from being overcharged or discharged. Solar charge controllers are primarily utilized in off-grid solar panels to control the energy flow into batteries. Most commercially accessible solar charge controllers for PV applications use a switched series regulator to control the charging current. A solar charge controller is a solar-powered voltage and current regulator. They are used to manage power input from PV arrays in off-grid and hybrid off-grid applications so that the best power output is given to run electrical loads and charge batteries. Solar charge converters are also known as solar charge regulators.

Lockdown imposed due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic resulted in temporary ban on import & export and manufacturing & processing activities across various industries, which decreased the demand for solar power components including panels, batteries, controllers, and others. In addition, halt in building and construction of solar energy power plants, owing to unavailability of workers and increase in demand–supply gap hampered the solar charge controller market growth during the pandemic period. This declined the market growth in second, third, and fourth quarters of 2020. However, the solar charge controller market recovered by the 2nd quarter of 2021, as COVID-19 vaccination began in various economies across the globe, which improved the global economy.

The rapid increase of solar panel installations, increase in variety of rooftop operations in remote areas, and rise in electronic infrastructure for solar power technologies all contribute to the market growth. The solar charge controller market  is predicted to rise owing to the rise in power consumption from data centers and communication base stations, as well as increased penetration of solar PV modules in hospitals, hotels, and corporate offices. However, high initial installation cost of solar battery and disadvantages associated with solar charge controllers are expected to hamper the solar charge controller market growth in the coming years. On the contrary, government initiatives & investments toward different solar infrastructure projects in energy, railways, and real estate are expected to create opportunities for key players operating in the market during the forecast period.
