Growing awareness of renewable energy sources powering portable solar charger market growth

Portable solar charger market is growing as consumers become more aware of the importance of using renewable energy sources rather than non-renewable energy sources.As opposed to coal-fired energy, solar energy doesn't produce hazardous carbon emissions that contribute to global warming and air pollution.Solar power also saves water, a valuable natural resource, because it requires less water to generate electricity. Saur Urja Nigam Haryana Ltd. (SUN Haryana) developed solar parks in Haryana, India to help the Ministry of New & Renewable Energy, Government of India achieve an ambitious goal of adding 1,00,000 MW of solar power by 2022.Coal, and gas are fossil fuels that pollute the air, water, and land.Pollution not only affects humans, but also other living creatures. For instance, mercury pollution is causing fish to die.In light of these factors, consumers are switching over to renewable and eco-friendly sources of energy production, which is expected to fuel the growth of portable solar charger market.


Increasing sales of smartphones driving the growth of the global portable solar charger market

Increasing smartphone sales are driving the growth of the portable solar charger market, since solar chargers are a good source of energy for charging smartphones, tablets, and other electronic gadgets.According to International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, in 2020, smartphones vendors sold approximately 1.38 billion smartphones worldwide. Additionally, around 20.8% of all smartphones sold to consumer were Apple smartphones. The sales of Centrica, which is a global leader in the portable solar charger company, had increased by U.S.D. 20.8 billion in 2019 due to the sales of portable solar charger.
