Renewable Energy Market Overview:

  • Conversion of the energy from different natural sources such as sun, tides, wind and others, into usable form such as electricity using technologies is known as Renewable energy.
  • Based on the type the market is divided into Hydroelectric, Wind, Bioenergy, Solar and Geothermal energy sectors.
  • By end-use, the market is bifurcated into Residential, Commercial, Industrial and Others
  • As per the research report of AGR, it is estimated that global renewable energy market was ~ USD 980 Billion in 2018 and is expected to grow @ CAGR of ~ 6% CAGR from 2020 to 2025 to reach USD 1,500 Billion
  • Solar PV and wind accounted for 86% of global renewable capacity additions in 2018.
  • During the forecast period, the market is expected to be dominated by hydroelectric power segment. Likewise, the Solar Energy segment is also expected to grow at the higher growth rate.
  • End-use market is expected to be dominated by industrial and residential segments, due to rapid industrialization.
  • The renewable energy sector saw substantial demand from most of the market segments as overall consumer sentiment remained positive.

Renewable Energy Market Outlook:

  • The renewable energy industry is set to enter a new phase of growth driven mostly by increasing customer demand, price aggressiveness, innovation, and collaboration
  • Asia-Pacific emerged as the renewable energy market leader in 2019, and its dominance is anticipated to continue over the forecast period.
    • Asia-Pacificmarket is to be dominated by industrial and residential segments.
    • China is predicted to account for the highest market share of the renewable energy market in Asia-Pacific and is projected to dominate the market during the forecast period. China aims to reduce its fossil-fuel reliance by implementing renewable energy for electricity generation.
    • China is projected to account for 40% of global renewable capacity expansion over the forecast period because of improved system integration, lower curtailment rates and enhanced competitiveness of both solar PV and onshore wind.
  • Higher planned renewable auction volumes and faster distributed solar PV growth in member states to meet renewable energy targets, expected to give more optimistic outlook to the European Union.
  • In the United States, wind and solar PV developers are hastening to complete projects before the end of federal tax incentives, while corporate power purchase agreements (PPAs) and state-level policies contribute to growth.

Renewable Energy Market Growth Drivers and Trends:

Most primary factors driving the world renewable energy market are:

  • Increased gas emissions (GHGs), particularly carbonic acid gas from the utilization of fossil fuels for energy generation
  • Growing concerns over the environmental implication of burning fuel
  • Volatile fuel costs
  • Rapid industrial readiness together with favorable policies for the renewable energy sector
  • Increasing demand for eco-friendly power generation resolution

The market for renewable energy is predicted to grow in the developed and developing economies because of the implementation of strict government laws concerning global climate change.

  • Declining prices and rising capability factors of renewable energy sources, alongside raising fight of battery storage, expected to drive the expansion of renewable energy market
  • Steady decline of costs for battery storage has begun to feature worth to renewables, creating intermittent wind and star progressively competitive with ancient, “dispatchable” energy sources.

With many countries increasing their renewable portfolio standards (RPS) in 2019, the business can possibly see necessary RPS-driven procurement growth throughout the forecast period, whereas voluntary demand can still hit new levels

As countries become progressively involved concerning global climate change and therefore the role of renewable energy in curtailing it, wind power, alongside alternative renewable energy varieties, is predicted to possess an additional focus from all the countries, throughout the approaching years.
