Segment Overview:


The global solar charge controller’s market research has been segmented based on the type, end-use industry, and region.


Based on Type


Based on the type, the solar charge controller market is segmented into PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) charge controller and MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) charge controller. The operating efficiency of a PMW charge controller is 70% approximately which is less than the efficiency of an MPPT charge controller that is 90%. PMW solar charge controller regulates and reduces the excess solar voltage, and this controller is a switch that connects a solar array to a battery. This is the best low-cost solution for small-medium solar systems. Whereas MPPT controllers are used in larger systems or utility-scale solar installations because these can produce superior performance.


Based on Region


The solar charge controllers market based on the region is segmented into four regions like North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the rest of the world. Among the other regions, the Asia-Pacific region dominates the highest market share for the solar charge controller’s market outlook. It is followed by the Middle East and Africa, and America.


Based on End-use Industry


The solar charge controller market revenue is segmented into residential and non-residential. The increasing population increases the demand for energy which results to increase solar installations at both mass and individual levels. For storing excess energy, batteries should be installed and along with batteries, solar charge controllers also should be installed to prevent battery failures. The Pulse Width Modulation technology is expected to dominate the market in residential and commercial solar panel operations.


Regional Analysis


The global market is segmented into the regions like Asia Pacific, Europe, America, and the rest of the world. During the forecast period, Asia- Pacific holds the largest solar charge controller market share among the others for their high population, government policies, incentive structures, and their modern houses. This region demands high energy and hence demands maximum solar installations. Certainly, brings the solar charge controllers for safety operations and to prevent battery failures. Worldwide, China is the leading country for market share in this region for its advanced technologies.


Europe holds the second-largest share in the solar charge controller industry due to its EU28 green energy target. Italy, U.K, and Germany are the major countries that increase the market share in this region. North America leads the significant market rate for its advanced technologies as commercial and industrial technologies. The other regions the Middle East & Africa and Latin America hold the healthy growth in the market trends along with the renewable power generations in the regions.  


Recent Developments


In October 2019, Solar Energy Corporation of India supplies 500 solar home cooking systems for the states like Uttar Pradesh, Meghalaya, Chhattisgarh, and Gujarat. To accept this contract, the bidder should manufacture solar cells, PV systems electronics, a battery, or PV cooking systems.


In August 2019, Hyundai launches the first car with a solar roof charging system which provides additional electrical power, fuel efficiency, and driving range to the vehicles. This technology is manufactured with a solar panel and a charge controller that has the capacity of 30-60% battery charging per day and also increases the travel distance by 1300km annually.


Report Overview:


A solar charge controller is a device that regulates the current or voltage produced by solar panels to protect the batteries in the solar power system from overcharging, because it may damage the panels and sometimes the whole system. These are not necessary for the small capacity like 1 to 5 watt or trickle charge panels. Since solar panels are of high capacity, there is a necessity of regulating them. It is very essential because currently, usage of solar panels is increased with energy storage. Apart, global safety regulations prevent the batteries from overcharging. By regulating this overcharging or overvoltage, batteries in the storage system get long life. This controller is designed as a circuit and integrated into the battery pack or as the entire standalone system. It is directly connected as a DC-coupled system. Based on the technology, three different types of charge controller technologies are available for solar systems.
