Solar Panel Market Overview

Solar panel refers to the devices and component which helps to harness the solar energy from sun. Solar panel is environment friendly and helps in reducing carbon emission. Moreover, solar panel is increasingly being used by the developed nations to fight against climate changes. The core advantage of solar panel is that it reduces the amount of electricity coming from fossil fuels by providing renewable source of energy directly coming from sun. It generates heating and electricity in both commercial and residential areas. These are photovoltaic cell that produces electricity with sunlight. Solar Panel continuously generates electricity as long as a source of light is abounding. It does not burn fuel, thus helps to make the process quiet, pollution-free and two to three times more efficient as compared to combustion technologies.

Market Size and Forecast

The global solar panel market is expected to expand at a significant CAGR of 26.3% during the forecast period of 2018-2027. Solar panel market has been segmented into product type such as, polycrystalline, mono-crystalline and thin-film of solar panels. Poly-crystalline panels accounted for the largest share of the global solar panel market in 2017. This can be recognized for its wide range of applications for Poly-crystalline and high competence coupled with the affordable price range. The mono-crystalline segment is anticipated to register significant growth within the forecast period owing to their technological advancement and their commendable efficiency. Solar panels are photovoltaic that produce electricity with sunlight. Solar Panel continuously generates electricity as long as a source of light is supplied. Solar Panel does not burn fuel, helping to make the process quiet, pollution-free and around two to three times more efficient than combustion technologies.

Globally, North-America is projected to dominate the overall solar panel market during the forecast period. Increasing penetration of advanced and as well as variety of solar panels and its products in the region is expected to positively impact the growth of solar panel market in future.
