Solar Panel Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027

Market Overview:

The global solar panel market size reached 177.7 GW in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach 536.9 GW by 2027, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 20.4% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use sectors. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

A solar panel, also known as a PV panel, is a collection of solar (or photovoltaic) cells that employ natural sunlight to generate electricity. It is made of several solar cells, manufactured using silicon, boron, and phosphorus, which are arranged in a grid-like pattern on the surface. The utilization of solar panels has increased across the globe as they do not lead to any form of pollution and their installation helps in combating the harmful emissions of greenhouse gases. Also, innovations in quantum physics and nanotechnology are projected to increase their effectiveness potentially.

Solar panels provide clean as well as renewable energy and assist in reducing the amount of electricity produced from fossil fuels. Owing to this, governments in various emerging regions are providing tax relaxations and conducting several awareness campaigns to encourage their installation. For instance, the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) of the Government of India is promoting the installation of solar PV systems in the country under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission. Apart from this, ultrathin solar panels have been developed which are lighter and more flexible than the glass-based variants. They are superior to conventional solar panels in terms of efficiency and cost-effectiveness. They can also be integrated into almost any surface, which will further boost their applicability across various sectors.
