Global Airport Solar Power Market: Overview
Air transport is usually connected with high utilization of power and harmful outflows of nursery gasses. Inferable from the significant measure of carbon dioxide emanations, airplane terminals have started appropriation of sustainable power source advances to handle and diminish the poisonous discharges. Solar based power is a standout amongst the most prominent practices over the globe because of which it is generally received in airplane terminals to produce vitality assets.
Accessibility of huge territories of unused terrains inside the premises of air terminals is relied upon to drive the development of the airport solar power market. Accessibility of extensive ranges in airplane terminals to oblige runways for flights is bolstering the development of this market. Advancement in the improvement of sun based power crosswise over air terminal premises is additionally prone to fuel the extension of the airport solar power market in the coming years. Reasonable proportion of voltage and vitality crevice is one of the rising patterns in the airport solar power market.
Sun oriented cells empowered with little power and energy crevice retains most extreme photons however it produces a lower measure of voltage while a cell furnished with greater vitality hole creates higher vitality with low vitality photons. This is one of the significant limitations for the development of the airport solar power market.
Air transport is commonly associated with high consumption of energy and toxic emissions of greenhouse gases. Owing to the considerable amount of carbon dioxide emissions, airports have initiated adoption of renewable energy technologies to tackle and reduce the toxic emissions. Solar power is one of the most popular practices across the globe as a result of which it is widely adopted in airports to generate energy resources. Availability of large areas of unused lands within the premises of airports is expected to drive the growth of the airport solar power market. Availability of large areas in airports to accommodate runways for flights is driving the growth of this market. Innovation in the development of solar power across airport premises is also likely to fuel the expansion of the airport solar power market in the coming years. Suitable ratio of voltage and energy gap is one of the emerging trends in the airport solar power market. Solar cells enabled with small energy gap helps to absorb maximum photons but it generates a lower amount of voltage while a cell equipped with bigger energy gap generates higher energy with low energy photons. This is one of the major restraints for the growth of the airport solar power market. Researchers across the globe from renowned universities such as University of Illinois developed a disruptive solar technology that has the capability to convert carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to hydrocarbon fuel with the help of sunlight. University of Arkansas has improved on solar technology that signifies a capacitor, a parallel plate that has embedded steel pipes to transmit the heat which is absorbed by the solar panels to the concrete. Rise in trend of smart airports across the globe is likely to fuel the demand for airport solar power over the forecast period.
By product type, the airport solar power market is segmented into ground mounted airport solar power systems and roof mounted airport solar power systems. Ground mounted solar airport systems held the dominant market share in 2016 and is expected to retain its position over the forecast period. Utilization of the vast acres of unused land at airports for connecting PV systems is likely to drive the growth of this segment. An airport is spread over huge tracts of land to accommodate runaways for flights that can be put to use to generate energy resources. A majority of airport areas such as parking areas and terrace end of terminals have potential scope to install solar power infrastructure.
Geographically, the airport solar power market is segregated into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. North America held the dominant share of the airport solar power market in 2016 and is likely to dominate the market over the forecast period. The growth is attributed to the increasing investments in solar power technology. Rise in implementation of renewable energy sources is likely to drive the growth of the airport solar power market in this region. The U.S. is expected to hold the major share of the airport solar power market in this region at the end of the forecast period. Asia-Pacific is expected to be the most attractive market owing to the rise in demand for smart airports. Japan, China, and India are likely to push the growth of the airport solar power market in this region. Global vendors across North America and Middle East & Africa have initiated extensive research advancements based on consumer requirements which are expected to drive the growth of the airport solar power market over the forecast period.
Costs pertaining to PV systems play a crucial role in the airport solar power market owing to its quality, cost, life, and reliability. Presence of numerous global and regional vendors is likely to create a competitive environment in the airport solar power market. Key players in the airport solar power market are Gaia Solar, Ameresco, Robert Bosch, SunEdison, Canadian Solar, Solar Energy Corporation of India, Solar Frontier, TECO Energy, Indosolar, and EMMVEE Solar Systems, among others.
