String inverters can be used in all applications including residential, commercial & industrial, and large-scale utility projects. These inverters offer individual connections with a single PV module for low-cost incursion and lower failure rates. Rising regulatory concerns related to the provision of effective interconnection with on-grid solar installations will increase deployment potential compared to its counterparts. Moreover, these products provide high operational feasibility across a wide range of applications including auxiliary line support, power back up, and among others, which further stimulates the industry landscape.

Microinverters are highly expensive compared to string and central due to their relative specifications. There has been a growing use of string inverters in PV farms owing to their several benefits including higher efficiency, easier installation, and user-friendly O&M. Furthermore, central inverters are mostly preferred for utility-scale applications owing to their lower costs, ability to develop higher power, and reliability as they are placed in protective environments.

Growing home renovation projects along with net metering schemes will sway the residential PV inverter industry trends

An increasing shift toward the combination of meticulous energy efficiency concord and renewable energy sources is set to encourage the business outlook. There has been an increase in product adoption across the residential and small commercial sectors, which is attributed to rising investments for the implementation of rooftop solar coupled with increasing energy demand globally.

In addition, restructuring of various government policies including trade investments across developing nations is anticipated to positively influence the industry expansion. For instance, in June 2021, the Chinese government announced its plans for a new policy program to encourage rooftop development in major countries, consisting of more than 20% rural residences.

The growing adoption of solar power by several business owners to reduce electricity costs is surging product usage in the commercial sector. Governments offer federal & state financial incentives to businesses on solar conversion, further driving the industry size. Furthermore, excellent tax benefits, reduction in overhead costs, and future longevity are other factors supplementing the market statistics.

North America PV inverter market will reach USD 4 billion by 2028. Solar is more accessible, prevalent & affordable in the North American sub-continent as it is economically competitive compared to traditional power sources. The solar energy market has been an accredited incubator for employment growth across the region. Additionally, government initiatives toward subsidized solar implementation along with the consistent fall in component prices have developed a favorable scenario for market expansion. Facilitation of fund flow through the federal investment tax credit for enhanced distributed generation techniques is further accelerating product deployment. For instance, in December 2020, the U.S. government extended the ITC, providing 26% tax credit for systems installed between 2020 & 2022 and 22% for deployments in 2023.


Investments in the production of highly efficient systems will enhance the overall industry presence

Major industry players are focused on the economies of scale and sustainability of the product’s quality to significantly increase their competitive market share. Crucial participants across the Middle East & Africa, Asia Pacific, and the U.S. are focusing on the reduction of carbon footprints through their products.
