The global solar power equipment market size was valued at $101.9 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $310.4 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 11.3% from 2021 to 2030. Solar power equipment is mounted on ground or rooftop to harness the sun’s energy and convert it into electricity for further use in the industrial, utility, commercial, or residential sector. Solar power systems consist of various equipment that convert solar energy to electricity, store it and supply whenever required. 

The extensive use of fossil fuels for various purposes such as transportation and electricity generation has severely impacted the environment, resulting in global warming. Thus, increase in global awareness regarding depletion of fossil fuels and its negative impact on the environment have created a demand for harnessing renewable energy resources such as solar energy. Curbing carbon emissions and harnessing maximum renewable energy resources is the need of the hour. Hence, governments across the globe have introduced various policies and initiatives to boost the renewable energy sector. This has increased the number of residential, nonresidential, and commercial users of solar energy, thereby creating a demand for solar power equipment market. 


According to International Energy Agency (IEA), in 2020, the generation of renewable energy increased by 7%, with wind and solar PV technologies together comprising a share of almost 60% of this increase. The share of renewables in global electricity generation registered a record annual increase of two percentage points and reached almost 29% in 2020. Renewable power generation needs to expand significantly to meet the net zero emissions by 2050 goals set by many countries across the globe. To endorse the importance of clean energy, the Indian government set up the International Solar Alliance, which aims to improve the use of solar energy and reduce dependency on fossil fuels. This alliance has received participation from countries across the globe. For instance, in November 2021, the U.S. joined the International Solar Alliance and in January 2022, Antigua and Barbuda joined the Alliance, taking its membership count to 102. Furthermore, the popularity of solar energy has significantly increased among residential users for activities such as water heating, owing to rise in electricity prices. In addition, many cities are now installing solar street lights to reduce the use of electricity generated using fossil fuels. In addition, large number of smart city projects in India are expected to fuel the use of solar energy, thereby positively influencing the solar power equipment market growth.

Utility held a majority share of the market in 2020

The novel coronavirus has rapidly spread across various countries and regions, causing an enormous impact on the lives of people and the overall community. It began as a human health condition and has now become a significant threat to global trade, economy, and finance. However, the demand for electricity increased during COVID-19, thereby leading to the market growth during the period. Furthermore, total shipments of solar panel manufacturers grew by nearly 7% from 2019 to 2020. Hence, the COVID-19 pandemic had no negative impact on the growth of the solar power equipment market.

Increase in advancements in technology have decreased the cost of solar equipment, thereby making it more accessible to residential users. Furthermore, innovative technological advancements such as development of smart tracking systems has significantly increased the efficiency of solar power systems. In addition, depleting reserves of fossil fuels have made efficient harnessing of renewable energy sources the need of the hour.
