Solar Street Lighting Market Trends




  • Reliable Source of Light in Remote Areas to boost market growth




Solar street lights provide complete independence from the power grid. Due to low maintenance and minimal operation costs, solar lighting has emerged as a popular and reliable source to power street lights. With this, transmission of electricity into remote areas has become feasible, which is currently not possible with traditional systems.


Falling prices of solar lighting solutions are driving the solar street lighting market. According to a National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) report, the cost of solar panels fell from $10/W to about $2/W between 1980 and 2010, an 80% drop in 30 years. The cost has dropped another 50% from $0.70/W to $0.35/W from 2015 to 2019. Reduction in their cost is expected to reduce the cost of these systems, thereby driving the market.


Rise in smart cities across the globe is a major driver of the growth of the solar street lighting market. A significant number of smart city development projects have been completed, with several underway in China, the United States, Saudi Arabia, India, South Korea, and other countries.
