A recent study conducted by the strategic consulting and market research firm, BlueWeave Consulting, revealed that the renewable energy market was worth USD 949.2 billion in 2021 and is projected to grow to USD 1.6 trillion by 2028. The growth of the renewable energy market is attributed to the surging energy consumption in commercial and household spaces along with favorable government initiatives and investments towards boosting the adoption of renewable energy. Furthermore, declining levels of non-renewable energy resources such as fossil fuels along with growing awareness towards energy conservation and sustainability are anticipated to boost the growth of the renewable energy market in the forecast period. However, the high initial cost involved in renewable energy plants acts as a major restraint for the market growth.

Increasing Demand for Renewable Energy is Driving Market Growth

The surging demand for renewable energy is emerging as one of the major driving factors for the renewable energy market growth. According to the International Energy Agency, the renewable energy capacity is projected to surge by 50% for 2021-2026, compared to 2015-2020. Commercial and industrial facilities are increasingly adopting renewable energy to diversify energy supply and reduce the dependence on imported fuel, which proves to be cost-efficient in the long run. This is anticipated to boost the market growth in the forecast period.

Rising Energy Consumption Worldwide is Propelling the Overall Renewable Energy Market

The expanding economic activities in developed and developing countries are boosting the global energy demand. The increasing population and number of electronic items such as smartphones as well as electric vehicles are also resulting in increased energy consumption. However, the non-renewable energy sources such as coal, natural gas, oil, etc., are unable to meet the growing energy demands. This is prompting the shift towards non-renewable energy sources, which is providing lucrative growth opportunities to the overall market growth.
