Solar Street Lighting Market Analysis/Solar Street Lighting Market Outlook
COVID-19 Impact on Solar Street Lighting Market
The COVID-19 crisis has made the world come to a standstill, causing disruption in global businesses. Solar energy in the last two decades has experienced noteworthy growth. However, the outbreak has disrupted this momentum considerably. Governments are tackling such challenges and determining the pace of solar energy deployment in the future. At large, the solar industry impacted by the effect of the pandemic and its uncertainty has resulted in concern for most businesses. Further, China being the largest market for generation of solar energy, the slowdown in the economic growth in the country has impacted the overall renewable energy investment and generation globally. With regards to India, the outbreak has hit at a time when the solar project execution in the country is at its highest in the financial year’s last quarter. India has ambitious targets to attain the 100GW solar energy target by 2022. In January 2020, the country has installed about 35GW of solar energy projects.
