Impact of COVID-19 on the global solar energy storage market industry

The global solar energy storage market had high impact of COVID-19 due to social distancing norms and shortage of manpower. This led to delayed installations and cancellation of new projects. In addition, the sharp decline in consumer expenditure highly affected the demand. Reduced expenditure of consumers during the lockdown highly impacted the market for solar products, including various solar energy storage systems.

Moreover, the upstream and downstream channels have been affected due to restrictions on movement, which lead to increase in the amount of inventories. Furthermore, high dependency on Chinese exports for solar cell, solar energy storage, and solar module negatively impacted the market. India imports around 80% of its solar products from China. As the manufacturing firms in China were idle for the last 6-7 months, it highly impacted the production process in India.

However, shifting trend toward remote working is considered a vital solution to improve the market conditions. Various automation companies utilize remote connectivity to ensure the access to field operators and service engineers who cannot be on site at this time. In the 2nd quarter of COVID-19, approximately 20% of people preferred electric micro mobility devices which are working on lithium ion battery.
