Feb 04, 2021 (The Expresswire) —
The globalsolar photovoltaic (PV) marketis set to gain momentum from the high demand for electricity from various countries. Hence, they are surging their power generation capacity either by installing new plants or by expanding the existing ones. Fortune Business Insights™ presented this information in a new report, titled, “Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Market Size, Share and COVID-19 Impact Analysis By Technology (Monocrystalline Silicon, Thin Film, Polycrystalline Silicon, and Others), By Grid Type (On-grid and Off-grid), By Installation (Ground Mounted, Rooftop, and Others), By Application (Residential, Non-Residential and Utilities), and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027.” The report further states that the solar photovoltaic (PV) market size was USD 162.65 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 185.62 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period.

COVID-19 Pandemic to Delay Multiple Solar Projects Globally

The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on the global economy. China is considered to be the major importer of raw materials, prefabricated structures, and inverters. It imports approximately 80% of modules and solar cells to India. The country is under complete lockdown, followed by India. Hence, many solar projects are getting delayed. We are providing an in-depth analysis of the current situation of this market to help you generate more sales.

Drivers and Restraints-

Rising Need to Reduce Dependence on Fossil Fuels will Drive Growth

Regulatory bodies of various countries are imposing stringent environmental protection regulations to encourage power generation enterprises to shift to eco-friendly and cleaner energy resources. Therefore, these countries are striving to increase their renewable energy power generation to lower the dependence on fossil fuels. They are mainly choosing solar energy to meet surging needs. However, solar photovoltaic (PV) operations are difficult to be conducted in water bodies, wetlands, built-up areas, forests, and agricultural lands owing to the instability of such lands, as well as low accessibility. This factor may hamper the solar PV market growth in the near future.

Regional Analysis-

Low Manufacturing Cost of Components to Augment Growth in Asia Pacific

Geographically, Asia Pacific generated USD 74.57 billion in terms of revenue in 2019 and is set to retain its dominant position throughout the forthcoming years. This growth is attributable to the low manufacturing cost of components and high solar irradiance levels in the region. Europe, on the other hand, is set to remain in the second position backed by the presence of favorable norms in the region. Besides, the increasing installation of solar farms would propel the demand for solar PVs in the region.

Competitive Landscape-

Key Players Focus on Expanding Their Operating Capacities to Compete with Rivals

The global market for solar photovoltaic (PV) is highly fragmented because of the presence of numerous firms in developing and developed nations. At present, Canadian Solar Inc. is in the leading position on account of its expansion plans. Below are the two latest industry developments:
