Solar Power Market Overview

The SPM has been rapidly growing in recent years as a result of increased environmental awareness, government incentives, and advances in technology. Solar power is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to traditional fossil fuel-based energy sources due to its numerous benefits, including lower carbon emissions, reduced reliance on non-renewable resources, and lower operating costs.

According to a report by the International Energy Agency (IEA), solar power is expected to become the largest source of electricity in the world by 2050, accounting for about 27% of global electricity generation. The report also predicts that the SPM will continue to grow at a rapid pace, with installed capacity reaching 600 GW by 2025.

The global SPM is currently dominated by countries such as China, the United States, and India, which have made significant investments in solar energy infrastructure. In 2020, China was the largest installer of solar power, followed by the United States, Europe, India, and Japan.

The SPM is also driven by technological advancements, particularly in the areas of photovoltaic (PV) panels and solar thermal systems. PV panels, which convert sunlight directly into electricity, have become more efficient and affordable in recent years, while solar thermal systems, which use mirrors or lenses to concentrate sunlight to produce steam and generate electricity, have become more cost-effective and reliable.

In addition to the growth of the SPM, there is also a trend towards the adoption of energy storage solutions, such as batteries, which can store excess solar energy for later use. This allows solar power systems to provide reliable and stable power even when the sun is not shining.

Overall, the SPM is expected to continue to grow in the coming years as more countries and companies invest in renewable energy sources and as technology continues to improve.

Mono-si technology is expected to emerge as the most preferred technology in SPM

Mono-si (Monocrystalline) sometimes is also called a single crystalline that has 15% of operating efficiency. The increasing investments in the solar photovoltaic technology result in growing demand from the industrial & utility sectors supported by decreasing price of mono-si panels act as a significant factor to drive the solar photovoltaic market. Features resulting in increased usage of mono-si solar panels includes space-efficiency, longer shelf life, and highest efficiency rates as it is manufactured using the highest grade of silicon. For instance, Bright Source Energy, Inc. has partnered with General Electric (GE) and NOY Infrastructure & Energy Investment Fund for building a 121 MW solar thermal power plant station in Ashalim, Israel’s Negev desert.

The rising demand for renewable energy generation is further expected to drive the growth of the solar power industry. The governments from across the world are encouraging renewable energy sources by introducing efficient and environment-friendly techniques for industrial as well as household applications.
