The top five leading players in the global rooftop solar PV market as of 2014 were Trina Solar, Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited, Jinko Solar, Canadian Solar, and SunPower. The cumulative share of these players amounted to 43% in 2014, says Transparency Market Research in a new report. Leading players are focusing on expanding their research and development facilities to develop new products to maintain their domination in the global market, observes TMR.
“Companies should work towards realigning their strategies to incorporate vertical integration of their operations to create a strong base of efficient and competitive services,” states the lead author of this research report. Mergers and acquisitions will also be considered by several players to establish their footprint across various other geographical regions and to absorb research and development facilities to improve technical support. TMR recommends players to consider bringing down costs for the price-sensitive countries in developing regions that have a higher need of alternative sources energy to reduce their carbon footprint.
Tax Benefits and Energy-efficiency of Solar Systems Augment Growth
A large number of commercial and residential spaces are opting for rooftop solar PV systems as they are easy to install and offer an energy-efficient solution to the ongoing energy crisis. Due to technological advancements and wide acceptance of rooftop solar PV systems, these are being used as primary sources of energy instead of alternative sources. The ideal lifespan of rooftop solar PV is over 30 years, which is a strong factor supporting the adoption of these systems in various sectors. The incentives such as tax credits and rebates offered by governments for opting for solar energy as against conventional energy is also bolstering the growth of this market.
Lack of Smart Grid Infrastructure to Dent Demand for Rooftop Solar PV Systems
The lack of smart grid infrastructure is the biggest hurdle in the mass adoption of rooftop solar PV systems. Thus, they still remain a viable option for individual usage purpose than for a large-scale energy supply. This is also hampering the transmission of solar power for electricity purposes. The market is also being held back by the negative sentiment surrounding the net metering policies for this setup.
Asia Pacific Takes the Baton from North America to Lead Global Market
The report states that the opportunity in the global rooftop solar PV market will be worth US$4.58 bn by 2023 growing from its 2014 valuation of US$1.79 bn in 2014, as the market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 11% between 2015 and 2023.
