Market Segmentation

Bifacial Solar Market


Global Bifacial Solar Market


The Global Bifacial Solar Market is expected to witness substantial growth during the forecast period owing to the rapidly growing demand for renewable energy, rising population, and increasing non-conventional energy prices.


A bifacial solar panel is designed with solar cells installed on both sides of the module. It absorbs light from the rear and front sides, allowing it to use diffused light better. Bifacial solar panels utilize advanced technology in solar modules and cell development, such as high watt modules and high-efficiency panels. These solar modules work best for ground-mount installations. However, as the bifacial solar panel obtains reflected light on the backside of the panel, they are not recommended for most rooftop-mounted solar installations. Bifacial modules are compatible with power converting solutions such as string inverters and micro-inverters.


The major factor driving the bifacial solar market is the need for new technological innovation in the solar industry and the reduction of the cost of energy. Moreover, the growing affordability is also likely to boost the installation of bifacial solar in various countries. Additionally, many solar panel manufacturers such as LG Solar, Longi, and Canadian Solar are producing new panels over 300w, with 400w modules in the market. Bifacial solar panels are ideally used for commercial and utility-scale applications. These panels yielded 11% more energy compared to standard solar panels. This factor is boosting the growth of bifacial solar panels for ground-mounted installation.
