The global solar panel recycling market exhibited strong growth during 2015-2020. Solar panels comprise hazardous materials, such as silicon, silver, aluminum, copper, gallium, lead, and cadmium. Their increasing installation across the globe has fueled the need for recycling to reduce waste generation. Solar panel recycling involves activities ranging from decommissioning to collection and sorting. It prevents the release of hazardous substances from waste streams and lessens the greenhouse (GHG) gas emissions of photovoltaic (PV) modules. Presently, several manufacturers are purifying recovered materials to use in new panels or other components like glass foam.
The rising sales of solar panels worldwide due to the increasing adoption of renewable energy sources is resulting in a massive amount of waste streams in landfills every year. This represents one of the key factors stimulating the need for solar panel recycling methods to minimize human health risks and ensure end-of-life (EoL) management. It also helps to reduce the overall cost of new panels and create job opportunities. Apart from this, the introduction of strict regulations and policies, such as product stewardship and increasing landfill costs, by governing authorities of numerous countries is also contributing to the market growth. Additionally, these authorities are legalizing recycling processes and implementing various solar energy projects. This, in turn, is presenting lucrative opportunities to manufacturers operating in this industry for expanding their market reach. Furthermore, several companies are investing in research and development (R&D) activities to recover and recycle rare metal elements, which is anticipated to promote the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global solar panel recycling market to grow at a CAGR of around 12% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
