Global Photovoltaic Rapid Shutdown Device  Market- Industry Trends & Forecast Report 2028

The global photovoltaic rapid shutdown device market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 14.2% during the forecast period, i.e., 2022-2028. The global photovoltaic rapid shutdown device market is growing owing to increasing investment in solar energy, rising demand for electric vehicles, increasing installation of solar panels in the residential segment, and favorable government policies for renewable energy. Moreover, the emergence of virtual power plants and growing demand for reducing carbon emission is expected to present lucrative growth opportunities for the growth of the global photovoltaic rapid shutdown device market.

Photovoltaic Rapid Shutdown Device Overview:

Photovoltaic rapid shutdown device is an electrical safety requirement set for solar panel systems and is a method of de-energizing solar system DC conductors ensure a safe condition on the roof of a building during any emergency or accident. Photovoltaic rapid shutdown devices are required because if the sun is out, DC wiring from the solar system remains life, even if the inverter of a standard string inverter solar system is switched off.

Global Photovoltaic Rapid Shutdown Device Forecast and Trend

Growth Drivers

The growing demand for electric vehicles is expected to propel the growth of the global photovoltaic rapid shutdown device market

The demand for electric vehicles is surging day by day. According to the Global EV Outlook Report of 2021, 2020 has been a fruitful year for EV sales even amid the COVID-19 pandemic, registering a staggering 43% increase reaching 10 million in EV sales as against 2019. Across the EV sector, battery-led electric vehicles (BEVs) had recorded over two-thirds of the total EV sales made in 2020. Additionally, Europe registered the highest annual increase by recording 3.2 million in sales for just a year.

The growing sales of electric vehicles have led to growing investments in solar energy around the world. Residential charging, public charging, and fleet charging are the major business use cases of electric vehicle charging station infrastructure and growing number of electric vehicle owners are looking to install photovoltaic solar panels to charge their vehicles. Moreover, companies like Shell, bp, ABB, and Hyundai are looking to develop charging stations for electric vehicles. Oil & gas giant, Shell has plans to install around 500,000 charging stations within the next four years. As photovoltaic solar panels are preferred for residential and commercial applications in charging stations, the growing number of electric vehicle charging stations coupled with growing sales of electric vehicles are expected to drive the growth of the global photovoltaic rapid shutdown device market during the forecast period.

Restraint

Grid integration issues with the solar panels are expected to hamper the growth of the global photovoltaic rapid shutdown device market

Solar energy has yet to realize its full potential as a sustainable energy source and much effort remains to be made to accelerate the adoption of solar technologies. Although the cost of solar gear has dropped considerably, market hurdles and grid integration issues continue to impede further implementation. Non-hardware solar "soft costs," such as permits, financing, and customer acquisition, are becoming a higher proportion of overall solar expenditures, accounting for up to 65% of the cost of a residential PV system. The soft cost fraction of overall residential system cost has increased from 58% in 2014 to 65% presently. The direct and indirect costs of permitting and inspection are a significant factor driving this increase in the price of residential PV panels hindering the growth of the global photovoltaic rapid shutdown device market.

Impact of COVID-19 in the industry

The COVID-19 affected all the markets around the world and disrupted the supply chains. The global photovoltaic rapid shutdown device market was also affected by the pandemic and subsequent lockdown during the first half of 2020 as companies were unable to procure raw material for the manufacturing and demand went down. Moreover, the disrupted supply chains and labor shortage affect the solar project commissioning around the world. As the market reopened, the project commissioning started and demand for photovoltaic rapid shutdown devices picked up.

According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), China installed more than 33% more solar PVs in 2020 than in 2019; however, the global distributed PV installation dropped by 8% in 2020 from 2019. IEA further projected that the solar PV additions could register a jump of more than 10% in 2021 from 2020 levels owing to the increasing number of government initiatives. However, the market was affected by a severe shortage of semiconductors and the second wave of the COVID-19 around the world.

Global Photovoltaic Rapid Shutdown Device Market : By Grid Type

Based on grid type, the global photovoltaic rapid shutdown device market is bifurcated into on-grid and off-grid. The on-grid segment held the larger market share in 2021 and dominated the global photovoltaic rapid shutdown device market owing to a large number of industrial solar farms around the world. The solar farms are connected to the grid and have created a growing demand for photovoltaic rapid shutdown devices to shut down the panel in case of any accidents or emergencies.

Global Photovoltaic Rapid Shutdown Device Market : By End-User

The global photovoltaic rapid shutdown device market is categorized into residential, commercial, and industrial segments. The industrial segment held the largest market share in 2021 and dominated the global photovoltaic rapid shutdown device market owing to the large volume of installed solar power capacity for industrial use. For instance, China commissioned a 2,200 MW solar power plant in September 2020. Moreover, IEA states that industrial-scale photovoltaic (PV) solar panels accounted for 63% of the total PC solar installations, supporting the dominant share of the segment in the global photovoltaic rapid shutdown device market.
