Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2035

Green Energy Market size is anticipated to cross USD 250 billion by the end of 2035,witnessing around 9% CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of green energy was USD 100 billion. The growth of the market can primarily be ascribed to the global shift from non-renewable sources of energy, such as coal and petroleum, to renewable energy. According to the data from the International Energy Agency (IEA), the annual renewable capacity additions increased by 45% in 2020, which accounted for almost 280 GW. Despite the aftereffects of the COVID-19 pandemic, installed renewable power capacity experienced a raise of 6% globally.

Green energy is important as it aids in mitigating the negative consequences of fossil-fuel-generated energy. Since green energy is a clean source of energy, it emits no greenhouse gases, protecting the environment while producing efficient and desired results. The global green energy market is used in a wide range of industries and sectors. Moreover, green energy has been a replacement for the energy generated from burning fossil fuels. Furthermore, there has been an increase in greenhouse gas emissions from the industry sector. Hence, the rapid growth of industrialization is anticipated to surge the growth of the global green energy market. Nearly 24 percent of the greenhouse emission in the year 2020 came from the industry sector in the United States.

Green Energy Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Awareness Among People to Use Green Energy for Electricity - The residential sector is the main user of electricity across the globe. Therefore, there is a need to raise awareness among them to use green energy for consumption rather than relying on fossil fuels. Hence, it is expected to drive the growth of the global green energy market. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, approximately, 60 percent of the electricity in the United States comes from fossil fuels burning, such as natural gas, and coal.

  • Rising Government Initiatives to Promote Green Energy - As per the India Brand Equity Foundation, the Union budget 2022-2023 allocated USD 2.57 billion to drive the manufacturing of high-efficiency solar modules for the government.

  • Increasing Need for the Reduction of Greenhouse Gas Emissions - Energy-related carbon dioxide emission has increased by 6 percent in the year 2021 across the globe accounting for 36.3 billion tonnes.

  • Rising Adoption of Electric Vehicles - As per the data reported by International Energy Agency, total electric vehicle sales accounted to reach 6.6 million in the year 2021 across the globe. 

  • Surging rate of Urbanization - As per the data stated by the United Nations, approximately 68 percent of the global population would live in urban areas by 2050.


  • Developing New Green Energy Sources Requires High Initial Investment – Infrastructure development for the development of new resources demands significant upfront investments. The cost of producing power rises as a result of these investments, particularly in the early years. The first step for the developers is to identify places that are acceptable to the general public, have good resources, and have access to transmission lines. Locating a potential solar location involves several years of monitoring to determine if they are acceptable or not. The workers also need to receive training on how to install, use, and maintain the new technologies. Before the performance may be optimized, some require operational knowledge under specific climatic conditions. Throughout the projected period, this issue is estimated to impede the market's expansion for green energy.
  • Irregular Changes in Climate Conditions for Green Energy
  • Lack of Workers for the Installation, Operation, and Maintenance of New Technologies

Green Energy Segmentation

Type (Solar, Hydro, Wind, Tidal, Bio Gas, Geothermal, Other Energy) 

The global green energy market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by type into solar, hydro, wind, tidal, biogas, geothermal, and other energy out of which, the hydro energy segment is projected to witness noteworthy growth over the forecast period. The growth of the segment can be accounted to the rapid construction of hydropower plants, and their wide application across sectors. Moreover, hydropower is the pillar of low-carbon electricity generation, supplying nearly half of it globally today. Hydropower contributes 55% more than nuclear and more than all other renewables combined, including wind, solar PV, bioenergy, and geothermal. According to the data from the IEA, the total global hydropower capacity was valued at 1308 GW in 2020.

Application (Commercial, Residential, Industrial)

The global green energy market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into commercial, residential, and industrial. Out of which the commercial segment is anticipated is anticipated to garner the highest revenue by the end of 2035. The growth of the segment can be attributed to growing demand for energy by this sector. Further, majority of companies are investing more on renewable energy owing to various environmental concern. Energy use is intimately related to climate change. The ecology is harmed by fossil fuels, and their prices are unstable. Hence, the environment could be preserved by substituting clean energy sources for fossil fuels. Also, government has launched various policies, making use of renewable energy stringent for commercial sector.
