Micro-Inverter - Global Market Outlook (2017-2026)
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Micro-Inverter market is accounted for $2.07 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach $10.95 billion by 2026 growing at a CAGR of 20.3% during the forecast period. Some of the key factors propelling the market growth are benefits over conventional solar inverter technologies, upsurge in renewable energy investment, demand for micro-inverters due to remote monitoring capabilities and rise in residential solar rooftop installations. However, Higher Initial and Maintenance Cost of Micro-Inverters are restraining factors for the Market.
A solar micro-inverter, or simply micro inverter, is a plug-and-play device used in photovoltaics, that converts direct current (DC) generated by a single solar module to alternating current (AC). Micro inverters contrast with conventional string and central solar inverters, in which a single inverter is connected to multiple solar panels. The output from several micro inverters can be combined and often fed to the electrical grid. Micro inverters have several advantages over conventional inverters. The main advantage is that they electrically isolate the panels from each other, so small amounts of shading, debris or snow lines on any one solar module, or even a complete module failure, do not disproportionately reduce the output of the entire array.
By Type, Single-Phase segment acquired significant growth because it enables the system to have a compact size, which is well suited for residential and commercial applications. Most of the micro-inverter manufacturers across the world offer single-phase systems. Also, as single-phase electricity transmission is well suited for residential applications, this is also one of the major markets for micro-inverters, witness high demand worldwide. For instance, in countries such as the US, Australia, and European countries, the residential segment operates on single-phase transmissions of electricity.
On the basis of geography, In Asia-Pacific, micro inverter market is expected to have the fastest growth in Japan during the forecast period. On a global scale, Japan is not the biggest market but it’s in the top three, with strong governmental support, and its huge solar energy industry. However, in spite of representing a major residential market potential, it has been facing limited micro inverter shipments. It is expected that the penetration rate of micro inverters into Japanese market would increase drastically to 7% of total installations by 2018. Another factor for catalyzing the market in Japan could be micro inverter suppliers obtaining Japan Electrical Safety & Environment Technology Laboratories (JET) certification.
