Global Photovoltaic Market Insights, Forecast to 2025 Report presents the worldwide Photovoltaic Market analysis with in depth study of manufacturers, region, type and application and its future scope in the industry till 2025.
Photovoltaic aid in the conversion of solar energy into electricity using semiconducting materials. A photovoltaic system is coupled with solar modules comprising several solar cells to generate electrical power. Photovoltaic installations may be ground-mounted, rooftop-mounted, wall-mounted, or floating. Cells, optics, and trackers are the components used in a photovoltaic system.
Some of the players present in Global Photovoltaic Market are Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Panasonic Corporation, Kaneka Corporation, Kyocera Corporation, Sharp Corporation, JA Solar Co. Ltd, Renesola Co. Ltd, Trina Solar, Jinko Solar, and Shunfeng International Clean Energy Limited among others. These players are influencing the growth of the photovoltaic market.
Photovoltaic systems have broad applications in residential, commercial, and utilities. With an increase in population coupled with the industrial revolution and economic development, energy requirements have grown consistently, which is posing a burden upon natural resources. Solar energy, tapped from the sun, can effectively meet a significant portion of energy needs, which is further driving the market for photovoltaic systems.
Based on the type, the photovoltaic market has been segmented into organic and inorganic components. In 2018, the inorganic components segment accounted for the largest share of the photovoltaic market. Moreover, the organic components segment is projected to grow at a faster pace during the forecast period. The organic photovoltaic technology is useful to transform solar energy to fully redefined electric energy.
This technology has the potential to supply electricity at a lower cost. The organic components are used in certain electronic gadgets and wearable devices, where the product is designed to operate on solar energy. Additionally, the rising concern regarding greenhouse gas emissions and carbon footprint have also influenced the market of organic components. The growing trend of building green structures in developed countries including the US, Canada, Australia, China, Germany, and France, among others, is expected to favor the growth of the photovoltaic market during the forecast period.
Supportive government policies are driving the growth of the photovoltaic market. Several government policies have been initiated to promote and support the use of solar energy and production of solar PV products. Such policies may vary across countries and may contribute to regulatory uncertainty. Many government policies have been framed to promote the production and consumption that reflects the growth and development of solar PV industries.
Production policies relate to transfer of technology, funding for research and development, production subsidies offered by the government, research deployment, and others. Consumption policies aimed to enhance the installation demand may drive the production of cost-effective solar equipment. To boost the consumption of solar PV technologies, governments initiated policies related to consumption subsidies, FiTs, tax credits, renewable portfolio standards, and others. Therefore, the growth of the photovoltaic market is strongly supported by government policies.
