Market Dynamics

Growth Drivers

Increasing Number of Solar Installation Due to Government Subsidies Will Fuel Market Expansion

Solar energy sector is witnessing rapid growth, driven by developments in power generation and utilization. Solar power is becoming the fastest-growing renewable energy source, contributing significantly to global renewable capacity. Governments worldwide are implementing various initiatives to promote inverter use in industrial applications.  Additionally, governments offer feed-in tariffs (FiT) to encourage residential and small commercial PV installations in different countries. These policies have promoted growth in the inverter market, particularly in the solar inverter segment.

Expanding Demand for Electric Vehicles to Support Market Growth

In the automotive industry, inverters play a crucial role, particularly in electric vehicle (EV) powertrains, where they convert DC power from vehicle batteries into usable AC power. This AC power is essential for running various onboard electronic systems and vehicle motors. The automotive sector is currently undergoing significant technological advancements, with a strong emphasis on connected, autonomous, and electric vehicles. The electric vehicle market is witnessing substantial growth on a global scale, primarily due to strict environmental laws and growing customer demand for electric vehicles. Government initiatives aimed at achieving ambitious EV adoption targets and the implementation of favorable laws have led to reduced EV costs, increased vehicle ranges, and improved charging infrastructure, all contributing to the rising demand for electric vehicles.


High DC Voltages May Provide Safety Risks That Hinder Market Expansion

In traditional photovoltaic (PV) systems, the use of high DC voltages in PV panels and associated equipment presents safety concerns for technicians, maintenance personnel, and firefighters. Solar inverters connected to PV arrays also operate with these high DC voltages, making it complex to separate DC electrical components from PV arrays using DC isolation switches. When PV modules are connected in series, they generate high voltages, which can be hazardous during system installation. Short-circuit conditions may result in electric arcs, potentially causing fires and endangering people near the PV system. Extinguishing these DC arcs is challenging and presents risks to firefighters. Fires can also damage DC cables in PV arrays, leading to automatic inverter shutdowns while requiring manual isolation of DC cables and other components.

Recent Developments
