Industry Overview

The global photovoltaic market size is expected to reach USD 140.5 billion by 2030 from USD 85.6 billion in 2021. It is expected to register a CAGR of 9.5% during the forecast period.  The technique of converting light (Sunlight) into electricity using specific types of materials, such as semiconductors, is known as photovoltaic (PV). The photovoltaic effect is noticeable in these semiconducting materials. It is environmentally friendly since it may generate electricity from a renewable source without increasing the carbon impact. Because it differs from traditional systems, it has proven to have low operating costs. The need for solar panels for power generation is growing as daily electricity demand rises. The growth of the solar photovoltaic (PV) market is due to the growing need for alternative energy sources and the rising concern over climate change. The favorable initiatives by the government and the surge in demand for PV systems for residential applications will propel the market demand for the global photovoltaic industry.

Photovoltaic Market Highlights

Market Segmentation
Insight by Type

Based on Type, the global Photovoltaic market is segregated into Modules, Inverters, and Balance of Systems (BOS). The market share of inverters is anticipated to dominate in the coming years. The market's expansion is attributed to the rising use of PV inverters in utilities and residential applications. PV inverters are commonly employed in the business electrical grid and for domestic purposes as it converts the variable DC power of a PV solar panel into AC power. The advantages that PV inverters offer, include independent functioning of each panel, increased fire safety, ease of installation, and low cost, thereby increasing inverter demand in the photovoltaic industry.

Insight by Technology

Based on technology, the market of photovoltaic is segmented into Monocrystalline Silicon, Thin Film, Polycrystalline Silicon, and Others. The monocrystalline silicon category contributes the largest market share in the photovoltaic industry as it is one of the most prominent solar panels in rooftop systems and is commonly used for large-scale installations in residential and commercial areas.

Insight by Grid Type

Based on Grid Type, the photovoltaic market is bifurcated into On-Grid and Off-Grid. The on-grid category is anticipated to grow at a higher pace owing to its low maintenance and operating costs and offering non-complexity to the grid-connected PV systems. On-grid PV systems are inexpensive since they transmit any excess electricity they produce to grids. These solutions do not require the installation of battery storage near them.

Insight by Installation

Based on the installation, the photovoltaic market is segregated into Ground Mounted, Rooftop, and Others. The ground-mounted category contributes the highest market share in the photovoltaic industry. Ground-mounted solar for utility or commercial projects is extremely cost-effective and there is an increased number of installations owing to high maintenance and operation efficiencies. During the projected period, the increased demand for utility-scale is anticipated to persist, with significant demand from China and several developing economies worldwide leading to the installation of ground-mounted PV modules. Moreover, the rooftop is growing at a faster pace as the solar rooftop model offers fewer pollution threats to the environment.

Insight by Application

Based on Application, the global Photovoltaic market is subdivided into Residential, Non-Residential, and Utilities. The residential segment is anticipated to have a high CAGR during the forecast period owing to the increasing number of PV systems installations on homes or building rooftops to provide electricity, the surge in the integration of building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) on the walls or roof of new industrial and domestic buildings as an auxiliary or primary source of electrical power will bolster the growth of the photovoltaic market.
