The solar inverter market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.09% from US$12.467 billion in 2021 to US$21.485 billion in 2028.

A solar inverter, also known as a photovoltaic inverter, is an electrical device that transforms the fluctuating direct current produced by a solar panel into a consistent alternating current. This converted electricity is seamlessly integrated into the existing electrical grid or utilized within a self-sustained local network that operates independently from the main power grid. High demand from residential and commercial coupled with grid infrastructure development is increasing the solar inverter market size.

High end-user demand is propelling the solar inverter market growth.

Households and businesses embrace solar energy for powering their day-to-day applications owing to which solar energy adoption has surged among these end-users. This increasing adoption of solar power systems has propelled the solar inverter market demand. According to the International Energy Agency, in 2021, solar photovoltaic (PV) generation experienced a surge of 179(TWh), registering a remarkable growth rate of 22%. This achievement placed solar PV as the second-fastest growing renewable energy technology. Moreover, solar PV is emerging as the most cost-effective choice for new electricity generation in the majority of the world.

Government initiatives to develop grid infrastructure drive the solar inverter market.

Government initiatives focusing on the development of grid infrastructure can significantly boost the growth of the solar inverter market as improving and modernizing the grid infrastructure allows for better integration of renewable energy sources, including solar power, into the existing grid system. Enhanced grid infrastructure enables the seamless integration of solar PV systems, creating a favorable environment for the growth of the solar inverters industry. According to the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, on December 2022, the Government of India started a scheme called "Development of Solar Parks and Ultra Mega Solar Power Projects", the currently ongoing initiative is focused on simplifying the setup of extensive solar power projects connected to the grid. The target is to achieve a capacity of 40 GW by March 2024 through this initiative.

Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to dominate the lifting station market.

The Asia Pacific region has witnessed a remarkable surge in solar power installations with countries like China, India, Japan, and Australia leading the way. This widespread adoption of solar panels has created a thriving market for solar inverters. = Additionally, according to the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, as of November 2022, in India the installed capacity of solar power had reached approximately 61.97 GW.

Alternative source availability restrains the lifting station market growth.

The solar inverter industry encounters competition from various renewable energy technologies, including wind power and hydropower, which can present cost-competitive alternatives. The preference for these alternative sources over solar energy depends on the specific region and its energy resource availability. Factors such as wind resources, hydrological conditions, and geographical features play a role in determining the suitability and economic viability of different renewable energy options. In regions with abundant wind or hydro resources, stakeholders may prioritize these technologies due to their cost-effectiveness or established infrastructure.
