About Solar Battery Charger
The solar battery charger is a portable system that uses sunlight to provide electricity to devices or charge batteries. This charger can charge batteries like lead acid and Ni-Cd (nickel cadmium) with a capacity up to 4,000 mAh, 48 V. The solar charger uses intelligent charge controllers to improve its efficiency. These chargers are portable, save energy, and require low maintenance. The panels used in the solar battery charger could be thin-films with an efficiency ranging from 7%-8% or monocrystalline panels with an efficiency of 18%-20%.
Solar battery chargers could be of different types, including solar trickle charger, clamshell solar charger, solar backpacks, and folding solar charger.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global solar battery charger market to grow at a CAGR of 13.8% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global solar battery charger market for 2016-2020. The report also presents the vendor landscape and a corresponding detailed analysis of the top five vendors operating in the market.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Solar Battery Charger Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Solar Battery Charger Market: Anker, Cobra, Goal Zero, Poweradd and Solio
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: All Powers, Endless Sun Solar, Powertraveller, Shenzhen Portable Electronic Technology, SunTactics and Suntrica.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The demand for solar PV consumer products such as solar battery chargers is increasing steadily as they provide low-cost and clean power to end-users. These products are gradually replacing conventional battery chargers that operate on the central power supply. The solar battery charger market is growing steadily because of increased demand from the US, Germany, the UK, Spain, Japan, India, Thailand, and Italy.”
According to the report, growing population and rapid industrial development have increased the demand for power globally, which has resulted in a demand–supply gap. Solar battery chargers help meet the needs while minimizing the dependency on conventional sources of electricity. Also, these chargers can be used even when there is a power outage or any other emergency. The key end-users, such as the telecommunications and automobile industry, are driving the growth in the solar battery chargers market.
Further, the report states that power output from solar PV depends upon the strength of sun rays, which varies according to the amount of cloud cover and the time of the day. This intermittent nature of solar energy results in a less reliable power source compared to conventional chargers.
