Micro-inverter Market and Top Applications


  • Residential: PV installations in the residential sector have been increasing tremendously and are projected to continue in the coming years. Solar inverter systems at residential levels have also become critical due to the increased adoption of residential-scale PV. Micro-inverters are mainly used in residential applications. Owing to its features such as great scalability and flexibility and because they are easy to install as compared to conventional string or central inverter technology, these micro-inverters are well suited in residential solar rooftop PV installations.
  • Commercial: A commercial-scale PV system is among the most familiar ways to enhance the company’s green credentials, as well as reduce electricity bills. Installing a solar PV system at a commercial level not only protects against the ever-rising retail energy prices but can also provide financial incentives by selling power to the grid. Mostly college and school campuses, as well as commercial buildings, hotels, and farms, have rooftop and ground solar PV installations. A micro-inverter helps in increasing the amount of energy harvested from an array in commercial applications. In addition, the lower voltages of micro-inverters make them a safer choice for commercial applications.
  • PV Power Plant: PV power plants are a relatively newer application segment for micro-inverters. It accounts for a smaller share than residential and commercial applications. The number of solar panels installed in a PV plant is huge, and it may not be convenient and cost-efficient to integrate micro-inverters for each panel. Also, most micro-inverters are single phased and are not suitable for this application as the electricity generated is transmitted directly to the grid, which requires a three-phase connection. However, a few manufacturers, such as Altenergy Power Systems, have expanded their micro-inverter product portfolio and offer three-phase micro-inverters that can handle up to 3–4 modules per unit, which is suitable for PV power plant applications.

Micro-inverter Market and Top Types


  • Single Phase: Most micro-inverters available in the market, at present, are single phased. New homes and small businesses adopt single-phase micro-inverters, wherein single-phase electric power is transmitted via 2 wires—active and neutral. Electricity from the solar PV system flows through one active wire, while the neutral wire is connected to the ground (earth) at the switchboard.
  • Three Phase: A three-phase micro-inverter is invented recently. These inverters are specifically designed to supply three-phase electric power and are mostly suitable for PV power plant applications. In conventional micro-inverter designs that work on single-phase power, the energy from the panel must be stored during the period when the voltage is passing through zero, which it does twice per cycle. In contrast, in a three-phase system, throughout the cycle, one of the three wires has a positive or negative voltage, and thus the need for storage can be greatly reduced by transferring the output of the panel to different wires during each cycle.

[179 Pages Report] Micro-inverter market is projected to grow from USD 2.5 billion in 2020 to USD 6.5 Billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 20.8 % between 2020-2025. Micro-inverters offer several benefits and have gained traction over the past few years. One of the main advantages of micro-inverter systems is that each panel is monitored and optimized individually to generate maximum power.  The significant rise in demand for micro-inverters can be attributed to a growing number of solar rooftop installations in residential and commercial applications.

To know about the assumptions considered for the study, Request for Free Sample Report

Micro-inverters are a relatively newer concept compared to other solar technologies. It was commercialized in 2008 by Enphase Energy (US). It is also called a plug-and-play compact solar inverter system installed beneath every solar panel. Their primary function is to convert the direct current (DC) power generated through the panel into alternate current (AC) at each panel level and transmit it further for direct use or to a grid.

Micro-inverter is an emerging solar inverter technology. The growing energy and power industry have led to an increasing need for efficient, inexpensive inverter systems. Micro-inverters can efficiently meet this requirement and are currently tested and the most adopted types in the solar sector. The growing deployment of solar PV panels for residential and commercial applications across the world drives the market for micro-inverters. Moreover, micro-inverters have several inherent benefits that make them popular in various industries.

Micro-Inverter Market Dynamics:

Driver: Technical advantages of micro-inverters over conventional solar inverters

Micro-inverters have several technical advantages over other conventional string and central solar inverters. Micro-inverter delivers a maximum potential output of the photovoltaic (PV) system. The main advantage is their ability to maintain a robust and consistent flow of power despite the shading of one or more of its panels; this has increased micro-inverters popularity among end users. Hence, micro-inverters are largely deployed with solar panels. Additionally, micro-inverters provide other benefits, which are listed below:

  • Micro-inverters can produce power from solar panels using maximum power point tracking (MPPT) technology to maximize power production from each solar panel.
  • Micro-inverters can substantially increase the efficiency of solar power systems immediately and maintain the level of efficiency over a long period. Most micro-inverters come with a 25-year warranty, whereas a standard string inverter holds only 10 years of warranty.
  • Micro-inverters are small and compact, thus eliminating the need for separate cooling systems as central inverters.

Restraint: Higher installation and maintenance costs of micro-inverters

Though micro-inverters have several advantages over conventional central and string inverter systems, the cost incurred during installation and maintenance is one of the major factors restraining the market. Micro-inverters are premium products available at a high-end price. A micro-inverter system includes one micro-inverter per module, a communication gateway, expensive AC trunk cables, and custom tools. The limited current of an AC trunk cable limits the number of inverters connected to the same cable trunk. Moreover, a micro-inverter system costs ~USD 100. As these inverters are well known for operating individual panels and are installed on one panel each, it involves a greater number of micro-inverter installations and a higher expense than that incurred for a string inverter on a standard solar installation.

Opportunity:  Technological innovations in inverters to improve their capabilities

Increased electricity requirements and the related rise in electricity costs have led to a demand for the development of efficient solar inverter technologies. Thus, new inverter technologies are being developed and introduced to cater to customers' unmet requirements. Over the years, micro-inverters have been developed using various architectures to improve their performance. In addition, several micro-inverter manufacturers have adopted partnership and collaboration strategies to expand their business operations, diversify their product offerings, enhance their technology portfolio, and improve overall performance. A few major players in the micro-inverter market collaborate with various companies to enhance their product offerings by inculcating new technologies in their products.

Challenge: Pricing pressure on manufacturers of micro-inverters

Solar PV systems are witnessing increased global demand as they generate green power to reduce dependence on grid power. With decreasing prices of solar modules, micro-inverters account for a large share of the overall installation costs of these modules. This results in downward price pressure on manufacturers of micro-inverters. As the overall costs of residential, commercial, industrial, and utility-based solar systems are reducing, inverter companies are bound to reduce the prices of their products. Solar module manufacturers are enduring more pressure than manufacturers of micro-inverters in terms of reduction in the costs of their products. Manufacturers of micro-inverters find it difficult to accommodate this change and allow price drops in their inverters. These price drops can be primarily attributed to the development of low-cost equipment and compressed profit margins, which are indicators of the overall price decline in micro-inverters in the coming future.
