Market Analysis: Global Solar Vehicle Market 

Global solar vehicle market is expected to register a healthy CAGR of 37.54% in the forecast period of 2019-2026. The report contains data from the base year of 2018 and the historic year of 2017. This rise in market value can be attributed to the increased levels of investments undertaken by the manufacturers of vehicles to promote environmental-friendly modes of transportation.

Market Definition: Global Solar Vehicle Market 

Solar vehicles are automotive that have been equipped and integrated with solar cells that can generate and store electricity for powering up various components inside the vehicle and even help in mobility of the electric vehicles. Solar vehicles do not utilize or depend completely on solar energy for mobility of the vehicle or powering the components inside the vehicles as currently they are only focused as an alternative source of energy.

Market Drivers:

  • Rise in the levels of concerns for the environment has resulted in a rise in adoption for eco-friendly vehicles; this factor is expected to drive the growth of the market
  • Increased initiatives undertaken by the governments to provide subsidies, financial benefits is expected to drive the growth of the market
  • Decreasing prices of components utilized in the development and integration of solar vehicles is expected to positively affect the growth of the market

Market Restraints:

  • Lack in the efficiency of the vehicles powered through solar energy as they are significantly high costs is expected to restrain the growth of the market
  • Lack in the availability of standardization of the products in the market is expected to restrain the growth of the market
