Renewable Energy Market Gain Impetus due to the Growing Demand over 2030

Renewable energy market size was valued at $881.7 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $1,977.6 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 8.4% from 2021 to 2030.Increasing aid from governmental institutions, coupled with favourable policies and regulations has played a pivotal role in renewable energy market growth.

The global renewable energy market is expected to be heading toward expansion phase during the forecast period. Factors propelling the market growth include concerns regarding environmental impacts of fossil fuels such as degradation, greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), severe climate change conditions, and others. In addition, rapid urbanization, and economic growth in the developing countries are significant factors driving the renewable energy market.

According to the International Energy Agency, the share of renewable energy to meet the global energy demand is predicted to grow in the next five years to reach 12.4% in 2023. Renewable energy is derived from natural processes such as wind and sunlight. Solar, geothermal, wind, bioenergy, hydropower, and ocean power are some of the major sources of renewable energy.

By type, the market is segregated into hydroelectric power, wind power, bioenergy, solar energy, and geothermal energy. The hydroelectric power type dominated the global market in terms of revenue in 2020, with over three-seventh of the total share. This is attributed to the fact, surge in investments in off-grid energy generation and rural electrification across the developing countries such as India, China, Brazil, and Vietnam have surged the demand for hydropower plants.

By end use, the market is fragmented into residential, commercial, industrial, and others. The residential segment dominated the global market, with over three-eighth of the total share in 2020. This is attributed to the fact that; solar energy is widely used in residential applications such as rooftop solar panels and building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) systems, owing to low cost of electricity production and reduction in carbon footprint & dependency on fossil fuels. In addition, government of various countries such as China, India, and the U.S. have implemented various policies to encourage the use of solar energy by offering subsidies to install solar panels in homes.
