The global solar energy market grew from $101.87 billion in 2022 to $126.82 billion in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 24.5%. The Russia-Ukraine war disrupted the chances of global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, at least in the short term. The war between these two countries has led to economic sanctions on multiple countries, a surge in commodity prices, and supply chain disruptions, causing inflation across goods and services and affecting many markets across the globe. The solar energy market is expected to grow to $354.99 billion in 2027 at a CAGR of 29.3%.
The solar energy market includes revenues earned by entities by providing services such as stand-alone power systems (SAPS), grid-feed solar systems, and grid-connected solar systems with battery storage. The market value includes the value of related goods sold by the service provider or included within the service offering. Only goods and services traded between entities or sold to end consumers are included.
Solar energy refers to the generation of renewable energy from sunlight and conversion into electricity, either directly using photovoltaics, indirectly using concentrated solar power, or a combination of both. Photovoltaics (PV) are used to collect solar energy and convert it to usable energy in the form of electricity.
Asia-Pacific was the largest region in the solar energy market in 2022. The regions covered in the solar energy market report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East, and Africa.
The main types in the solar energy market are solar cell panels, solar cell paste, and solar silicon wafers. Solar cells are panels used to convert sunlight into electricity. Solar cell panels can be used to generate electricity to be used in residential or commercial sectors. The technology used in solar energy is photovoltaic systems and concentrated solar power systems and the types of panels are mono-crystalline thin film, and poly-crystalline. Solar energy is applied in residential and commercial and end-user are electricity generation, lighting, heating, and charging.
The increasing government initiatives to support renewable energy sources are expected to propel the growth of the solar energy market. Government initiatives include subsidies and relaxed laws for the implementation and use of solar energy. These initiatives have led to the installation of various solar projects all across the world for the production of renewable energy that is affordable to consumers. As government initiatives increase globally, there will be a significant rise in the adoption of solar energy across the world. For instance, according to the Union budget 2022-2023, India will allocate INR 4,500 crores ($0.58 billion) for the development of high-efficiency modules for solar photovoltaic cells under the PLI (Production-Linked Incentive) scheme. In addition, in 2020, Romania's Ministry of Environment allocated over USD 63.7 million for the Casa Verde Fotovoltaice (green PV home) scheme to support residential solar installations under its net metering regime. Therefore, increasing government initiatives to support renewable energy sources are expected to drive the growth of the solar energy market.
The development of bifacial solar cells for increased output is a key trend gaining popularity in the solar energy market. Major companies and research and development centers operating in the solar energy sector are focused on developing bifacial solar cells to meet market demand for maximum output. Bifacial solar cells absorb light from both the front and back sides of their surfaces, catching albedo light that will otherwise be wasted. Therefore, companies and research and development centers are focused on developing bifacial solar cells to maximize the output of solar energy. For instance, in August 2021, researchers from Australian National University, a public research university located in Canberra developed a new bifacial solar cell with a 96.3% bifacial factor. It is a dual-sided silicon solar cell with a front-conversion efficiency of 24.3% and a back-conversion efficiency of 23.4%, resulting in a bifacial factor of 96.3%. According to the researchers, the performance indicates an effective power output of around 29%. The bifacial solar cell will outperform the single-sided silicon solar cells and offer efficiency for solar PV projects.
In March 2022, Sonnedix Power Holdings Limited, a UK-based global company specializing in the power production of solar energy acquired Sun Power Energy for an undisclosed amount. This acquisition helps Sonnedix to increase its workforce, gain a 1GW development pipeline throughout Poland, and expand its product reach to Europe. Sun Power Energy is a Poland-based company that develops solar photovoltaic modules.
