Rising Carbon Emissions Pave Way for Rooftop Solar PV Systems
The growing energy crisis has motivated several residential as well as commercial spaces to adopt rooftop solar PV systems. These systems not only offer energy-efficient solutions but are also easy to install. Furthermore, their ability to generate a high capacity of energy is making them a preferred choice of alternative energy source over other green sources of energy. The considerably longer lifespan of these systems also makes them a suitable for a long-term energy solutions for residential and commercial places. The tax benefits offered by various governments for utilizing solar panels to generate heat are also spurring a demand for these systems. Thus, these systems are also garnering large amounts of investments from equity as well as public investors.
Transparency Market Research states that the global rooftop solar PV market was valued at US$1.79 bn in 2014 and is expected to reach US$4.58 bn in 2023, as the market expands at a CAGR of 11% between 2015 and 2023. The demand for rooftop solar PV systems will also surge as developing and developed nations strive to cut down their carbon footprint with alternative sources of energy. Reducing battery prices required for energy storage are also expected to boost the sales of rooftop solar PV systems in the near future.
Asia Pacific Emerges as the Next Big Investment Destination for Rooftop Solar PVs
From the geographical standpoint, North America held the largest share of 31% in the global rooftop solar PV market. The region will retain its dominant position all throughout the forecast period as it embraces the TPO model. Furthermore, increasing accessibility to financial leasing schemes will also lead to rising number of installations of rooftop solar PV systems in North America by 2023.
Asia Pacific has also been identified as an emerging segment of the global market with India and China in the lead. Initiatives such as the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission will be the primary driver for India’s growing adoption of these systems. Meanwhile, China’s compulsion to bring down pollution levels and reduce carbon emissions will force bring about a greater interest in rooftop solar PV systems.
Tax Benefits Lure in More Residential Consumers Keeping the Segment in the Lead
The increasing number of government incentives and tax rebates have led the demand for rooftop solar PV systems in the residential sector. Divided amongst two end users, namely, residential and commercial, the former is anticipated to hold a share of 63% in the global market in terms of volume. The uptake of rooftop solar PV systems is also attributable to the convenient electricity solutions they offer to residential consumers amidst rising energy concerns. The emergence of Third-Party Operated (TPO) model in several countries will also boost the residential segment’s stake in the overall market. The commercial users will also register a rise due to increasing usage of these systems in government buildings.
Some of the leading players in the global rooftop solar PV market are Shunfeng International Clean Energy Limited (SFCE), Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited, Trina Solar Limited, SolarWorld AG, Jinko Solar Holding Co., Ltd., and SunPower Corporation. To stay ahead of the competition, players will have to focus on research and development of products that suit the price-sensitive consumers. Furthermore, strategic mergers and acquisitions to improve product portfolio and enhance the technological knowledge base will also provide the companies an edge.
