Global Micro Inverter Market Insights & Forecasts To 2025
Micro Inverter Market Insights
The Global Micro Inverter market is estimated to grow at a substantial rate during the forecast period. Microinverters are used to convert direct current electricity produced by solar panels to alternating current electricity. This emerging technology provides highly improved efficiency and power output as compared to string and central inverters. Factors driving the market for microinverters are various benefits of small-sized photovoltaic systems, fact growing residential market and encouragement by the government.
There has been a steady rise in government investment in renewable energy projects due to growing awareness about sustainable energy. Further, technological advancements in applications of microinverters are further expected to boost market growth. However, factors such as high capital investment, cost of installation and tough maintenance are expected to have a negative impact on the global market for microinverters.
Micro Inverter Market: Type Insights
The Micro Inverter market based on type can be classified as single-phase and three-phase. The single phase micro inverter segment is expected to hold the highest market share in terms of revenue during the forecast period. Three phase micro inverters provide additional befits especially in commercial applications but are not as cost-efficient as the single-phase inverters. However, the segment is likely to experience steady growth in the coming years as well.
Micro Inverter Market: Connection Type Insights
Based on the connection type, the micro inverter market is segmented into Stand-Alone and Grid-Connected. Grid-connected systems convert solar power directly into AC current. The benefit of grid-connected micro inverters is that it enables excess power generated to flow out, therefore optimizing cost. Grid-connected micro inverters do not require the use of expensive charge controllers and batteries. The grid-connected system segment is estimated to hold the highest market share due to cost and power benefits provided by them.
Micro Inverter Market: End-User Insights
The Micro Inverter Market based on end user is classified into residential and commercial usage. The residential usage segment is estimated to hold the major share in terms of revenue during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to rising demand for solar power in homes, awareness about sustainable energy usage and cost-effectiveness of microinverters. The single phase grid connectors are used extensively in residential applications. Being less expensive and energy effective, the residential applications segment is expected to demonstrate a high growth rate. The commercial applications segment is expected to grow substantially as well.
Micro Inverter Market: Regional Insights
North America is expected to dominate the Global Micro Inverter market during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to growing technological advancements and investment in renewable energy. Strong government support with respect to adoption of solar energy and investment in solar power projects is expected to further fuel market growth in North America. The Asia-Pacific market is estimated to hold the second largest market share, with growing opportunities for energy technology in the region. Growing dominance of manufacturing sector and residential projects is likely to boost market demand for microinverters in the region.
