Industry Dynamics

Industry Trends

There is a growing investment in solar energy projects worldwide as well as in AEC (Architecture, Engineering, and Construction) machinery. In addition, there has also been a growing adoption of Industry 4.0 practices among industries.

Growth Drivers

The most significant growth driver of the global microgrid market is the growing emphasis on decarbonization by governments as well as the end users. It is also attributed to the rising demand for uninterrupted power supply, government initiatives to endorse the development of microgrids, growth in the number of cyberattacks on energy infrastructure, higher adoption of microgrids in rural electrification projects, and rapid urbanization and development of smart cities. Furthermore, rise in demand for grid modernization, IoT, distributed energy production sources integration, and implementation of different smart grid technologies.


High cost, lack of proper regulatory policy, and technical design issues hinder market growth. Typically, it needs to maintain a reciprocal relationship between the microgrid and the main grid when these are connected. Vulnerability of the grids to instabilities in electricity supply also hinders extensive adoption and growth of the market because oversupply may result in power loss in the microgrid due to the tripping of the generator, and undersupply of electricity may result in malfunctioning of the equipment.


Developments in microgrid controllers, smart microgrids, and renewable energy storage systems offer the market's growth opportunities. Also, innovations in microgrid hardware and software, a growing focus on technology and data management integration, higher investments in feasibility studies, and a growing demand for reliable electrical equipment for the aerospace and military sectors offer promising growth opportunities.

Geographic Overview

North America leads the market as it is the early adopter of these systems. It is also expected to continue to do so due to higher investments in R&D activities.

The Asia-Pacific market is expected to grow at a higher CAGR due to rapid electrification in rural and semi-rural areas, supportive government regulations and tempting incentives to promote the usage of renewable energy, easy availability of raw materials, and growing adoption of standalone sources.
