The GCC solar photovoltaic market is projected to exhibit a growth rate (CAGR) of 12.50% during 2023-2028. The rising energy consumption in the region, declining costs of solar photovoltaic technology, and favorable government policies and incentives represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Solar photovoltaic (PV) technology is a pivotal component of the renewable energy landscape, harnessing the power of sunlight to generate electricity. A solar photovoltaic system converts sunlight directly into electrical energy through the photovoltaic effect—a phenomenon that involves the creation of an electric current when certain materials are exposed to sunlight. The fundamental building block of solar PV technology is the solar cell, typically composed of semiconductor materials like silicon. When sunlight strikes these cells, it stimulates the electrons within the material, causing them to move, creating an electric current. Multiple solar cells are combined to form solar panels or modules, which are then interconnected to create a solar PV system capable of generating electricity on various scales. Solar photovoltaic systems are versatile and can be deployed on rooftops, open land, or integrated into buildings' facades. They require minimal maintenance and produce zero greenhouse gas emissions during operation, making them a clean and sustainable energy source. Advances in solar technology have led to increased efficiency and reduced manufacturing costs of solar PV systems as compared to conventional energy sources. At present, solar photovoltaic finds extensive applications in diversifying energy portfolios, minimizing reliance on fossil fuels, and mitigating the environmental impact of energy production across the GCC countries.
GCC Solar Photovoltaic Market Trends:
The region's abundant solar resources and high solar irradiance levels that create an optimal environment for solar energy generation represent the primary factors driving the market growth. This aligns with the GCC's aspiration to diversify energy sources and reduce reliance on fossil fuels. Moreover, the commitment to combat climate change has accelerated the adoption of renewable energy, with solar PV emerging as a prominent solution, thereby propelling market growth. Apart from this, the aggressive sustainability goals and policies of governments of various GCC countries that encourage investments in solar infrastructure has catalyzed market growth. Additionally, numerous technological advancements and economies of scale that lower the cost of solar PV installations, rendering them highly competitive with traditional energy sources, has escalated the product demand. Along with this, the rising engagement of the private sector in solar photovoltaics due to its cost-effectiveness and decreasing dependency on subsidies is another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, the increasing need to meet heightening energy demands owing to the expanding population and rapid urbanization across the region that enhances the appeal of solar PV's decentralized and modular nature has augmented the product uptake. Furthermore, the large-scale integration of solar PV systems into buildings due to the rapid growth of the construction sector in the GCC region is contributing to market growth. Other factors, including rising collaborations with international partners, shifting preferences toward cleaner and more sustainable energy generation, and growing focus on energy security, are also anticipated to drive the market further.
