Solar Energy Market Introduction and Overview 

According to SPER Market Research, the Global Solar Energy Market is estimated to reach USD 337.84 billion by 2033 with a CAGR of 12.5%.

The report includes an in-depth analysis of the Global Solar Energy Market, including market size and trends, product mix, Applications, and supplier analysis. Solar energy is derived from the sun's radiation and can be transformed into various energy forms like electricity and heat. Its abundance and renewability make it an appealing alternative to finite and climate-damaging fossil fuels. Various technologies, such as photovoltaic cells and concentrated solar power systems, capture and convert solar energy. The advantages include diminished greenhouse gas emissions, decreased reliance on fossil fuels, and a positive impact on creating a cleaner and sustainable energy future.

  • September 2022: Three solar farms in Rajasthan with a combined clean energy capacity of 420 megawatts (MW) have been launched as Amazon India's first batch of utility-scale renewable energy projects in India. These include a 210 MW project that ReNew Power will create, a 100 MW project that Amp Energy India will develop, and a 110 MW project that Brookfield Renewable will develop.
  • March 2022: A pilot project called Project Nexus was co-created by the California Department of Water Resources, utility Turlock Irrigation District (TID), Marin County, California-based water and energy project developer Solar AquaGrid, and the University of California.

Market Opportunities and Challenges
Solar energy is used in air conditioners, water purifiers, and other devices which in turn generate enormous investment opportunities in the Solar Energy Market.  A variety of solar-powered products, including solar-powered water purifiers, solar-powered air conditioners, solar-powered trees, solar outlets, and others, have been made possible by technological advances in solar energy, and it is predicted that these technologies will create enormous growth potential in the years to come. During the projection period, the medium-term growth of the worldwide solar energy market is anticipated to be supported by favourable government regulations, rising use of solar PV systems, and falling solar panel and installation cost prices.

On the other hand, factors including the increasing use of clean energy alternatives like gas-fired power plants and onshore and offshore wind projects are projected to restrain market expansion over the study period. According to estimates, the market growth will be constrained by the high cost of power and low capacity in comparison to other energy sources. The cost of the inverter, solar batteries, wiring, installation, and solar panels are all included in the price of installing solar panels. This is a significant issue that will limit the expansion of the solar energy market over the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact on Global Solar Energy Market
Numerous industries, including the market for solar energy, were greatly damaged by the COVID-19 epidemic, which caused economic unrest, supply chain disruptions, and labour shortages that delayed solar project completion. The difficulties included fewer workers because of social exclusion, shortages of equipment because of import-export restrictions, and rising expenses. Manufacturing and shipping were disrupted as a result of the epidemic, which was centred in China, a significant source of solar components. These problems put a stop to economic activity, sparked health worries, and hindered market expansion. Governments and businesses responded by implementing stimulus plans to jump-start the world economy. They also loosened some regulations on port operations and logistics to speed up the delivery of blocked parts, which helped the recovery.
