[Research Report] The solar PV inverter market is expected to grow from US$ 8,673.56 million in 2022 to US$ 17,041.24 million by 2030; it is estimated to register a CAGR of 7.8% from 2023 to 2030.

Residential solar solutions can provide free, uninterrupted electricity for years while contributing to a greener environment. Residential solar rooftop systems are easy to install and require minimal maintenance. The electricity produced in excess can be sold to the grid through a net-metering facility, which help in reducing the electricity bills. With depleting fossil fuel reserves, accelerated environmental degradation, and pressure on the power generation infrastructure, several governments have taken various steps in the form of subsidies to accelerate the adoption of solar energy by providing residential solar solutions.

As per Solar Energy Industries Association in June 2022, the US installed 3.9 gigawatts (GW) of solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity in Q1 2022 to reach 126.1 GW of total installed capacity, enough to power 22 million American homes. Solar power accounted for 50% of all power generating capacities through renewable sources added in the US in Q1 of 2022.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Solar PV Inverter Market


During the COVID-19 pandemic, multiple supply chain disruptions occurred across various industries in 2020. The solar PV inverter market was adversely affected due to the discontinuation of operations of several industries, including process and discrete industries. In regions, such as Europe, the temporary discontinuation of new housing project constructions in 2020 in urban areas hampered the growth of the real estate industry in the region. This inflated real estate prices and created unfair competition among licensed accommodation providers. Further, France and Spain reported a decline in housing permits in 2020. Thus, the solar PV inverter market experienced a slowdown in 2020. As per the World Manufacturing Production Statistics by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) for the second quarter (April–June) of 2020, the manufacturing operations of Europe declined by 19.3%, making it the worst-affected industrialized region. Most manufacturing companies temporarily closed their factories or minimized production operations, which resulted in global trade loss. These factors hampered the solar PV inverter market in Europe in 2020.

Market Insights – Solar PV Inverter Market

In Asia Pacific, the solar PV inverter market growth is attributed to significant developments in the renewable energy sector owing to increased government initiatives toward climate change and net-zero targets. The rising investments in photovoltaic (PV) plants and the growth of solar power installations in the residential sector across APAC countries such as China, India, Australia, and Japan are creating lucrative opportunities for the solar PV inverter market players.

In North America and Europe, the solar PV inverter market is expanding due to substantial growth for string inverters, favorable government policies, and subsidy provisions. With the US being the major contributor, North America occupied a significant revenue share in the solar PV inverter market size.

Favorable government policies and subsidies such as residential feed-in tariffs (FITs) encourage customers to invest in renewable energy across Europe. Germany is leading in manufacturing solar inverters in tandem with the hi-tech advancements in inverters. German solar companies thus pose a competitive advantage over other players.

Application-Based Insights

Based on application, the solar PV inverter market is segmented into residential and community, commercial and industrial, and utility. The utility segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022. A utility-scale solar facility generates solar power and feeds it into the grid, supplying a utility with energy. Almost all utility-scale solar installations have a power purchase agreement (PPA) with a utility, ensuring a market for their electricity for a specific period of time. The most widely used solar inverters in the utility sector are the central and string inverters. Increased renewable energy demand, emerging government subsidies, and declining cost of solar power and equipment are major reasons for the development of the utility sector which in turn is driving the solar PV inverter market growth. The presence of key market players providing consumers with industry-leading utility-scale solutions to achieve higher efficiency and reduced balance-of-system costs with their pre-integrated power stations is one of the factors driving the segment's growth.
