The global solar charge controller market size was valued at USD 1.12 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 8.18 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 15.30% during the forecast period of 2019-2032. By application, the utility segment contributed 52.5% market share in 2018.

The solar charge controller market is driven by the increasing adoption of renewables for energy production. The charge controller plays an important role in maintaining the safety of the battery system and, therefore, the power supply system. These are the devices that regulate voltage generated from solar panels, in accordance with the battery that is used for energy storage. They also ensure that the battery is not over-discharged, which can create further issues in operation. 


Solar Energy to Play a Significant Role in Achieving Green Energy Targets

Various governments have introduced encouraging short and long term renewable energy deployment targets that will propel solar power installations. Currently, a major portion of this renewable energy is being generated using solar panels. This, coupled with several attempts to store more and more energy that is generated, will make charge controllers vital equipment to have during solar installation. Following this trend, the solar charge controller market size will increase at a healthy rate.

Increasing Use of Solar Power in Residential Applications Will Drive the Market Growth

Solar power has found a significant preference in the residential sector in recent years. The major applications in this sector include solar water heater, electricity, district heating, and others. This has led to the deployment of charge controllers at the same rate to ensure the safety of batteries and to maintain desired voltage levels. Also, the government subsidies for putting up solar panels at individual levels have helped to increase the installations of solar charge controller inverters.


Growing Penetration of Renewables Will Drive Solar Charge Controller Installations

One of the major factors driving the solar charge controller market growth is the rising penetration of renewables for power generation. Solar energy is preferred the most amongst the available renewable energy sources; therefore, the market is set to grow with the increasing deployment of solar energy.

Further, increasing implications of green energy targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions are being carried out by various governments around the world. The main motive for this is to maintain the year-on-year temperature rise in considerable limits. The European Union, on its path to achieving its 2020 target of 20% energy using renewables, has compelled countries to introduce various rollouts and planned installation of solar.

Ensuring Battery Safety and Unwanted Expenditures On Maintenance Will Cater To Market Growth

The demand for batteries has increased robustly over the past decade. This is mainly occurring to maintain power supply in case of failures. Following this, as charge controllers ensure operational safety by preventing the battery from being overcharged and discharged, their installations have grown parallelly with batteries. Charge controllers also maintain a specific level of voltage and, therefore, help in preventing system failures and reduce unwanted expenditures on maintenance.


Increased Competition from Other Alternatives Of Green Energy

The major factor that can hinder the market growth is the adoption of other green energy sources for power generation. A significant threat to the industry is the growing adoption of wind power. Various projects are being carried out for harnessing wind power and recent technological advancements are making floating wind power plants economical. This will certainly negatively impact the solar industry and, therefore, hamper market growth.     


By Type Analysis

Maximum PowerPoint Tracking (MPPT) Charge Controller to Gain Momentum during the Forecast Period

Based on type, the market is classified into pulse-width modulation (PWM) charge controller and maximum PowerPoint tracking (MPPT) charge controller. Currently, the MPPT charge controller segment accounts for a lesser share in the market than the PWM charge controller due to the difference in the price of the two. But, the operational advantages such as better efficiency in low sunlight, long wire ruins, and low battery charge would cater to the rising share of maximum PowerPoint tracking (MPPT) charge controller during the given forecast period.

Utility Segment to Account for Maximum Share

By Application, the market is segregated into residential, commercial, industrial, and utility. The growing population in various regions is resulting in increased urbanization and therefore raising the energy demand. Also, rural electrification is being targeted in many countries. This has led to increased solar installations at individual and mass levels. For renewable energy distribution, new grids are being set up, and batteries are mandatorily being installed for storing excess energy. Batteries form an essential part in solar energy as the harnessing of sunlight cannot be carried out for 24 hours, and during days, it is dependent on the seasons. Therefore, batteries have become essential in every sector, such as utility, residential, commercial, and industrial.
