MarketsandMarkets forecast the smart solar market size to grow from USD 6.47 Billion in 2015 to USD 13.26 Billion by 2020, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.4%. Strict mandates of regulatory bodies has led the organizations to upgrade to the upcoming technological solutions, such as analytics and real-time monitoring. This acts as a primary driving factor for the smart solar market as solar energy helps in reducing the dependence on conventional sources of energy which are depleting. Other driving forces include growing need for energy efficiency and high electricity tariffs.

The smart solar market is broadly classified by application into Commercial & Industrial (C&I) and residential consumers. Compared to residential application, the C&I segment is experiencing high adoption as the initial cost for deployment of smart solar solutions and services is high, thereby limiting the application in investor owned utilities. Due to budgetary constraint, residential consumers are hesitant in investing in smart solar solutions even when the penetration of traditional solar solutions is high in residential segment.

Asset management is expected to dominate the solution segment in the smart solar market during the forecast period. This growth is driven due to technological advancement and strict regulatory mandates across North America and Europe. Meter Data Management (MDM) is expected to witness the highest growth due to the growing roll-outs of smart meters and smart grids. Technological innovation has led to additional functionality of MDM to support more business processes across the utility value chain such as customer billing, credit management, and meter asset management, which is also responsible for the growth of MDM solution.

The smart solar market is segmented across five regions, namely, North America, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Europe, Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Latin America. The analysis shows that the spending on smart solar is increasing globally due to the increasing Information and Communications Technology (ICT) integration across different verticals, especially in developing regions. North America is projected to dominate the smart solar market during the forecast period due to technological advancements and early adoption of smart solar solutions and services in the region. The APAC market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2015 and 2020. The primary driving forces for this growth are huge technological spending and penetration of meter and component manufacturing industries in countries such as China, India, and Japan.

Smart Solar Market

The adoption of colocation solutions and services is still in the introductory phase in the developing regions, such as MEA and Latin America. Therefore, the initial start-up cost prevents several organizations in these regions from adopting smart solar solutions and services. This acts as a major restraining factor for the growth of the smart solar market. However, worldwide increase in the IT spending is expected to provide significant growth opportunities. On a strategic front, many companies are utilizing different growth strategies, such as mergers & acquisitions, partnerships & collaborations, and product development to increase their share in the market. Some of the major technology vendors include ABB Group, GE Power, Itron, Inc., Schneider Electric, and Siemens AG.
