Fundamentals Governing Solar Micro Inverters Market

Growing focus toward integrated module is witnessed as a key trend in the solar micro inverters market. These integrated modules are designed to reduce the labour costs and installation time and streamline the overall operation and maintenance in the field. These modules offer up to 25% more power than conventional systems.

The prices drop of micro inverters and government initiatives have resulted in higher adoption of photovoltaic (PV) installations across the globe. This is due their optimal performance, cost-effectiveness, and safety features. Further, growing PV installations increases the demand for the micro inverters.

Solar Micro Inverters Market

Energy storage systems decentralize reserves of energy that can be used whenever required, thereby enabling users to operate the grid more efficiently. Increased production has led to drop in prices of energy storage devices. The rising affordability of energy storage devices for solar power systems is expected to benefit the vendors of micro inverters to a significant level during the forecast period.

Segmentation Analysis of Solar Micro Inverters Market

The integrated category is expected to exhibit faster revenue growth during the forecast period in the solar micro inverters market. This can be attributed to the decline in micro inverter prices, growing focus of key players toward integrated module systems, increasing product launches, and continuous rise in the number of strategic partnerships.

The residential category held the largest revenue category by end use in 2017 in the solar micro inverters market. This is due to the increase in demand for micro inverters in residential PV installations and growing electricity needs in U.S., Japan, China, India, and other countries.
