The Solar Energy Market is valued at USD XX.XX billion in 2016 and is expected to reach a value of USD XX.XX billion by the end of 2022, growing at a projected CAGR of XX% during the forecast period of 2017 - 2022.

India is in a state of perennial power shortage with a demand-supply gap of 12 %, and this gap can only be filled with the use of renewable sources of energy due to the over-burden on conventional sources of energy like coal and other non-renewable sources. More importantly, solar power energy is best suited in the Indian context due to the geographical location of the country. The country receives an annual radiation of approximately 2000 kWh/m2, which if appropriately tapped can generate substantial amount of energy. Solar thermal technology is the process of using the sun's radiation to generate electricity through solar photovoltaic technology that converts this energy into electricity.

Solar energy generates 5000 trillion kWh per year, and its rate of adoption is increasing consistently due to greater awareness among the people. The market growing at 25% CAGR is gaining popularity due to the government's keen initiatives and incentives to the manufacturers and the users, the low operating costs, lack of electrical grids in certain parts of the country, increasing investments in the sector and high consumer awareness of the technology, its relevance and viability. The market however, faces restraints in its cost of production, cost of initial investment and faulty market design.

The market that generated 1000 Megawatt of energy in 2015 is expected to generate 80,000 MW of energy by 2020 and 100,000 MW by 2022. The market segmented on the basis of its scale as Rooftop Solar, Large Scale Solar and Ultra Mega Power Projects, exhibits opportunities in expanding its market, reducing cost of electricity and collaborative efforts for R&D in this domain. Another driver of the technology is the stress of the Indian Central Government to complete the projects that were initiated in the past.

The report which contains information on the market size and share, drivers, constraints and opportunities, market insight depending on the scale of production gives an in-depth analysis of the market potential, investment opportunities, recent mergers and acquisitions and collaborations and recent technological development in the solar energy industry.
