Pico Solar, Solar Home Systems, and Solar PV Generators and Kits: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

The market for solar photovoltaic (PV) consumer products has expanded significantly in recent years across a variety of industries, geographies, and applications. Off-grid solar lighting for base of the pyramid (BOP) markets, the leading solar PV consumer product segment, is transitioning from a humanitarian aspiration to big business. Platform companies have been established, investment is flowing, and companies are expanding, so opportunity is abounding. But so is risk and uncertainty, as operating in BOP markets presents unique challenges.

Current trends affecting the solar PV consumer product market include increased political pressure to eliminate the use of kerosene as a light source, solar PV module price reductions, efficient LED lighting advances, and the success of social enterprise business models. The ecosystem of companies, competitive products, and innovative financing mechanisms that has emerged offers great opportunity for reducing poverty and increasing profits. Pay-as-you-go (PAYG) services are gaining acceptance for both pico solar and solar home systems and have the potential to further accelerate industry growth during the next 10 years. Navigant Research forecasts that the global annual market for solar PV consumer products will grow from $550.5 million in 2014 to $2.4 billion in 2024.

This Navigant Research report analyzes the emerging global market for solar PV consumer products. It focuses on pico solar products and solar home systems (SHSs), but also analyzes growth opportunities and key players for solar PV generators and kits. The study examines the distinct market issues for each product type in both developed and developing countries, including drivers and barriers, business models, and pricing trends. Global market forecasts for unit sales, capacity, and revenue for pico solar, SHSs, and solar PV generators and kits, segmented by region, extend through 2024. The report also examines the major technologies related to solar PV consumer products and profiles the key players in this emerging industry.
