Region :Global | Report ID: FBI101650 | Status : Ongoing



Electrical energy is the basic need today, and its demand is increasing all over the world. Also, the need for an alternate source for energy has gained importance, and as solar energy is renewable energy backed with the government's ambitious green energy targets, it has become a major attraction for investors. Over the last decade, countries like China, Germany, and the USA have come up with solar powerhouses and increased the production of electricity by solar energy, which in turn has helped the solar panel market to grow.

Based on type, the solar panel market is segmented into the monocrystalline panel, polycrystalline panel, and thin-film panel. Based on the application, the solar panel market is divided into solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant and solar concentrated power plant. The solar PV panels dominate the market due to low operating costs with it. Based on end-user, the solar panel market can also be segmented into residential, commercial, industrial, utilities, space & defense, and others.

Key Market Driver -

Key Market Driver – Regulatory shift towards solar installations

Key Market Restraint -

Key Market Restraint – High installation cost

The major market driver for the global solar panel market is the increasing demand for clean energy around the world. Many countries are now shifting towards the sources of clean energy. With the provision of government incentives and tax rebates over the installation of solar panels, the market is expected to undergo exponential growth.

The key market restraint for the global solar panel market is the high cost of installation of the solar panels. A certain area of land has to be given for the installation of the panels, the required amount of area increases with an increase in the amount of energy required. Post-installation of panels, the area cannot be used further for any other purpose, which acts as a restraint in the growth of the solar panel.

Key Players Covered:

Some of the major companies that are present in the global solar panel market are PHOTONIX Solar Private Limited, Urja Global Limited, Vikram Solar Limited, Waaree Group, AcuTech Solar Pvt. Ltd., Tata Power Solar Systems Ltd., HT Solar, GSA,       Einnova Solarline, AE Solar, JS Solar, Mysolar USA, Jiangsu Runda PV, and Sunpro Power.
