Solar lights can meet unique performance parameters by varying solar panel size, bulb brightness, battery size, lighting angles, pole heights, and special features like motion sensors or network connectivity which helps boost the solar lights market size.

The gradually growing requirement of energy and the limited resource of traditional energy sources are challenging for both developed and developing countries. Solar lights provide a clean, cost-effective, environment-friendly solution to provide households with access to lighting. Awareness related to clean energy is increasing in the developing nations boosting the global solar lights market trends in near future. A wide variety of off-grid solar products, ranging from large installations powering to small portable lights are gaining popularity in low- and middle-income countries. Prices for different type of solar lights have decreased by around 80% in the past 6 years and are expected to drop even further which is driving the growth of the solar lights industry. Governments, NGOs and other organizations accelerating the adoption of solar lights through tax cuts, subsidies which is creating more favorable opportunity for solar lights market growth in the near future.

Nowadays, the use of solar lights is very common in both residential and commercial places. According to solar lights market analysis, residential sector is indulged in efficiently offsetting and diversifying electricity consumption which is boosting the solar light market during the forecast period. Solar energy further brought a huge transition in the commercial market. Solar lights are gaining popularity and replacing the conventional outdoor lighting solutions and street lights. Moreover, increase in the investment by the government and favorable government policies for construction of new highways and roadways projects in developing countries with solar street light products is anticipated to boost the growth of the solar light market.

Compared with traditional street lighting, solar street lighting uses solar energy which is completely renewable. In a genuine sense, solar street lighting promotes environmental protection. Solar light products are cost effective over time as no continuing electricity costs are attached with the product. Solar lights can store enough energy to operate continuously throughout the night, even in overcast or snowy weather as product can turn on and off independently. Solar light products help illuminate all parking lots and paths during storms and power outages. The demand for the global solar lights market is anticipated to grow due to the increase in popularity of solar light products such as solar garden lights, solar street lights for highways, and solar IoT lights in various applications.

Switching to solar power products, means taking an active part in conserving the environment. People around the world are adapting new ways to make positive changes in community. According to solar lights market forecast, residential sector is focusing on investing in future with solutions which are smarter, greener, and more adaptable to the ever-changing landscape. Adoption of off grid or solar lighting network in residential and public gardens help overcome the utility connection light maintenance cost.

Off-grid solar lights help overcome the constraints associated with traditional grid-powered lighting solutions. Off-grid solar lighting solutions can avoid foundation work of cables ditch digging, cable pipe laying, cable threading inside pipes and ditch landfill, which needs a lot of labor. Off-grid solar light systems provide a much easier installation. The off-grid solar lights are independent and come up with the economic benefits such as cost-saving and labor-saving which drives up demand for off-grid solar light products in the market.

The rechargeable batteries are already included in a solar light fixture which makes installation of solar lights effortless. Solar light batteries are recharged over the day to provide a constant flow of electricity at night. The battery charges and drains as the lights operate from dusk to dawn. Technological development in new batteries such as longer life-span and excellent environmental compatibility is drive the demand for solar lighting products in different applications. Decomposable or "green" batteries are now undergoing development for solar light, which is projected to open new solar lights market opportunities in the forecasted period.

Switching to solar light products is advantageous in several applications such as in infrastructure projects and residential garden lighting, however the products have a few drawbacks. The surface temperature of the outdoor solar lights in summer can rise to 60℃. The ultraviolet rays have a destructive effect on the protective coating of the shell, plastic parts, potting glue, sealing rubber ring adhesive strip, adhesive, etc. Long-term exposure of product toward the high ultraviolet rays will result in fractures on the panel which can impact the product ability to perform effectively in different weather conditions. The surface of solar PV is affected by the ambient temperature, which results in less effective sunlight absorption. In addition, it is simple for dirt and dust particles to accumulate on the surface of solar light resulting in obstructing sunlight absorption and lowering performance of the product which is creates a restrain in the market growth.

The need for solar lights has increased due to a boom in the global solar industry. A surge in the investigation of new renewable energy sources has grown over the past five years, aside from the pandemic period. The report further outlines the details about the revenue generated through the sale of solar lights across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
