Solar Vehicle Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027

The global solar vehicle market reached a value of US$ 190.7 Million in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 1,400.3 Million by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 40.32% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Solar vehicles can be defined as electric automobiles that run on solar energy by using photovoltaic (PV) cells to convert energy from sunlight to electricity. These vehicles have either monocrystalline or polycrystalline panels and are available in two kinds: hybrid and electric. The hybrid variants run on an internal combustion engine (ICE) and an electric motor. Whereas, the electric variants run only on electric motors and store power in rechargeable batteries. These solar-powered vehicles are highly cost-effective and aid in minimizing both environmental and noise pollution.

Growing environmental consciousness across the globe is one of the primary factors driving the market growth. Governments of both developed and emerging economies are increasingly focusing on efforts and undertaking initiatives to minimize vehicular pollution. Consequently, automobile manufacturers are emphasizing on developing sustainable vehicles that reduce the overall dependence on fossil fuels and can operate on clean and renewable sources of energy. Furthermore, the widespread adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) is also providing a boost to the market growth. Additionally, various technological advancements, including the development of automated solar sunroofs that can minimize the time required for charging the vehicle, are also creating a positive outlook for the market growth. Other factors, including the rising demand for fuel-efficient automobiles and research and development (R&D) activities for developing innovative technologies to harness solar energy, are projected to drive the market further.
