Solar lighting system operates on electricity from batteries, charged through the use of solar photovoltaic panels. It is composed of a battery, solar panel, LED lamp, and charge controller. The working principle of the solar lighting system lies in the collection of solar energy and transforms it into lighting by using the photovoltaic effect which is being used in a photovoltaic panel and solar panel. The stored energy is collected in a rechargeable gel cell battery used later to produce lighting at night. The rapid infrastructure development in all sectors of India is pushing local solar light manufacturers to compete and deliver innovative solar lighting products at low prices to increase their presence in the market.
Market Dynamics of the Solar Lighting Market Include:
- Growing renewable energy sector
Renewable energy is produced from natural sources or from renewable resources that are constantly replenished. India is third-largest consumer of electricity in the world after U.S. and China. The increasing demand for electricity is forcing India to search for new ways, especially renewable, to produce energy due to which India is constantly investing and developing its renewable energy sector.
- Rising infrastructure development
The growth in the infrastructure of highways, railways, inland highways, ports, and aviation is acting as drivers for the Indian solar lighting market because of government schemes, ease of street light installation, and minimum maintenance post installation
- Increasing need for energy-efficient lighting systems
As solar lighting products are now more sophisticated with LED and microcontrollers, it allows the user to control the illumination level of solar lighting products hence consuming less energy. This advantage of solar lighting systems and the need for energy-efficient systems act as drivers for the Indian solar lighting market.
- Increasing use of solar lanterns in rural areas
The increased use of solar lanterns in rural areas is hoisting the market growth of the Indian solar lighting market by providing the various option of solar lantern products at subsidies rates.
- Rise in growth of LED technology
LED lights have massively entered into residential, commercial, streetlight and yard lighting but still it has to go long way. The Indian LED Lighting market is growing as LEDs have gained a mainstream in the lightings market due to continuous declining LED prices in the country and favourable government initiatives, such as UJALA and SLNP, offering LEDs at a subsidized cost and solar LED system installation projects for streetlights, respectively. Thus, boosting the use of LED as lighting source and solar energy sector is providing a lucrative opportunity for the growth of Indian solar lighting market.
- High presence of off-grid population
Presence of high population off grid and frequent electricity cut in the rural areas has attracted rural population towards solar energy and this is providing growth opportunities for Indian solar lighting products and services in rural areas.
Restraints/Challenges Faced by The Solar Lighting Market
- High dependence on conventional source of energy for electricity generation
This high dependency on coal and other fossil fuel for electricity generation has slowed the transition and decency on solar energy restraining the demand and growth of solar lighting in the Indian market.
- Lack of awareness about renewable energy
High initial cost of installing solar lighting system is therefore acting as a major challenge for the growth of India solar lighting market.
