String Inverter Market Trends

  • Increasing demand for continuous and reliable power sources is driving the market growth

The market CAGR for String Inverter is due to the increasing demand for continuous and reliable power sources along with customization and easy installation. Each installation requires a means of converting direct current into alternating currents, such as solar inverter systems, which facilitate the introduction of the electricity produced into the electrical grid. String inverters are used in residential, commercial, and industrial sectors and in utilities. Increasing consumption of solar energy around the world is considered one of the main drivers of the market. The string inverter market is expected to be driven by lower costs that eliminate the monitoring capabilities of the system. Apart from the conversion, solar inverters perform voltage tracking, grid connecting communication, and shut down during emergency conditions. String inverters are most commonly used in residential and commercial applications and are nowadays increasingly used in small utility projects across the globe.

Additionally, reliability, affordability, and high efficiency will drive the market share of cable inventors during the forecast period. The increasing integration of renewables in large-scale projects is further accelerating the growth of the string inverter market. The solar inverter eliminates the high cost of utility bills and provides superior long-term efficiency. Several players in the power generation sector are looking for opportunities to reduce their carbon footprint by focusing on the use of renewable energy sources for power generation, thus driving the demand for string inverters in the market. Back to the COVID-19 outbreak impacted the string inverter market. The closure of new chain inverter facilities in the commercial and residential sectors and disruptions to supply chain and manufacturing activities due to active lockdown and social distancing has hampered the growth of this industry.

Solar power systems are currently manufactured in various forms, such as an off-grid solar power system, a battery-backed grid-tied solar power system, and a battery-free, off-grid solar power system without backup. By having such diverse types and uses, a significant increase in the solar inverter market is expected, increasing new opportunities in the future.

For instance, in June 2021, China announced its plans for a new policy program to augment the rooftop development in pilot provinces, including Hebei, Henan, and Shandong, which consist of over 20% rural residences. Various government initiatives, along with the expiring Feed-in-Tariffs (FiTs), will positively influence the acceptance of string inverters in the residential sector. An increasing shift toward the integration of renewable energy sources and meticulous energy efficiency concord will foster industry expansion. Thus, driving the String Inverter market revenue.

String Inverter Market Segment Insights:

String Inverter Product Insights

The String Inverter market segmentation, based on product, includes on-grid and off-grid. The on-grid segment dominated the market, as the usage of On-grid systems is mainly in small and medium solar panels, which are used in industrial and commercial sectors. In the utility sector, generally, large solar panels are used. Nonetheless, the scope in utility is lower than compared to commercial and industrial sectors. On-grid inverters produce a pure sine wave of AC electricity than off-grid string inverter, hence, promoting the use of on-grid string inverter that ensures the safety and efficiency of home appliances.

String Inverter Phase Insights

The String Inverter market segmentation, based on Phase, includes single and three Phases. The single-phase category dominates the market and is expected to witness a rise in CAGR during the forecast period. This is owing to their constructive operational feasibility, because of which they are gaining attention in residential and small commercial establishments. Other than this, the three-phase string inverters are expected to benefit from factors such as the absence of an inverter subpanel, low cost, and compact size over the forecast period.
