Global string inverter market will expand significantly on account of numerous government measures to accelerate the adoption of sustainable energy. In 2018, European Union has updated its energy policy framework with an aim to bind renewable energy of at least 32% from overall energy mix. The directive will positively stimulate the industrial competitiveness and will boost the demand for PV systems.

Declining component prices on account of favorable tax benefit measures by regulators will significantly drive the market size. Improvement in primitive technologies along with volume manufacturing practices have led to considerable declination in the overall component prices. Anti-dumping duties implemented by the U.S. on various Chinese modules, depreciation in euro and yen, and the downward adjustment of the minimum import values is anticipated to further decline the prices in the near term.
