Photovoltaic Market Size, Sales, Share, Analysis, Industry Demand and Forecasts Report From 2019-2025


The global photovoltaic market was valued at $53,916.0 million in 2018, and is projected to reach $333,725.1 million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 25.1% from 2019 to 2026.

Photovoltaic energy is the energy produced by the sun’s radiation, which is transformed into electricity in photovoltaic cells. The electricity is then fed into the electricity network for can then be used in electrical equipment. Photovoltaic energy technology is widely used in rooftop solar installations to provide stored energy for residential buildings at a low cost. In addition, on a commercial scale, photovoltaic technology is used in solar lamps, parking meters, emergency telephones, trash compactors, temporary traffic signs, charging stations, and remote guard posts & signals.

Moreover, it is used in solar buses and cars to provide electricity to run the vehicle motor. Furthermore, in the agricultural sector, photovoltaic technology is widely in solar drying to dry crops faster. It is further used in photovoltaic panels, which generate electricity to run water pumps, and serves as an economical option as compared to new electric lines to provide power to remote locations. Moreover, photovoltaic technology is used in aerospace & defense sector for manufacturing of solar panels to be used in satellite to generate electricity for smooth working of satellite in space. In addition, in telecommunication industry, it is widely used in PV modules consisting of silicon solar cells connected in series or parallel that provide the required charging current for batteries, thus enabling maintenance-free operation and reduced storage costs for the entire system.

The growth of the global photovoltaic market is majorly driven by increase in energy demand due to rising population, In addition, surge in need for sustainable energy resources has been witnessed across the globe, coupled with favorable government regulations. These regulations focus on the reduced dependency on fossil fuels and help in controlling environmental pollution. This in turn is favoring the demand for renewable energy sources such as solar energy, and is the key factor that fuels the demand for photovoltaic energy. In addition, reduction of carbon footprint and upsurge in need for low-cost energy generation are expected to propel the growth of the photovoltaic market.

However, factors such as high cost of installation, storage, and power conversion devices and low efficiency of PV module are expected to hinder the growth of this market. On the contrary, decrease in cost of solar systems and energy storage devices is expected to offer lucrative opportunity for market growth. In addition, increase in prices of fossil fuels is anticipated to provide remunerative opportunities for market expansion, as rise in prices of fossil fuels, such as coal, will boost the cost of electricity generation, which in turn will result in increase in usage of photovoltaic energy.

The global photovoltaic market is segmented based on technology, system, application, and region. Depending on technology, the market is classified into thin film (cadmium telluride, copper indium gallium diselenide, and amorphous thin-film silicon), mono-Si and multi-Si. The systems covered in the study include high concentrated PV (HCPV) and low concentrated PV (LCPV).
