Report Overview

The renewable energy market is witnessing tremendous growth owing to the declining levels of non-renewable energy resources along with various government and private investment and initiatives towards building renewable energy infrastructure.

Renewable Energy Market- Industry Trends & Forecast Report 2028

The global renewable energy market was worth USD 949.2 billion in 2021 and is further projected to reach USD 1.6 trillion by the year 2028. The market is flourishing owing to shrinking availability of non-renewable energy resources, which is resulting in a surge in its price, coupled with the increasing government and private investments and initiatives towards building renewable energy infrastructure. Such a scenario is anticipated to provide lucrative growth opportunities to the renewable energy market during the forecast period.

Renewable Energy Market

Renewable Energy - Overview

Renewable energy is energy generated from renewable sources that will naturally replenish over a human timescale. Sunlight, wind, rain, tides, geothermal heat are some of the most common sources of renewable energy. They provide a very effective alternative to non-renewable energy sources such as fossil fuels. These energy sources are most prominently used for electricity generation, air and water heating/cooling, transportation, and rural (off-grid) energy services. Solar and wind energy are considered extremely economical which makes them popular.

Renewable Energy Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Rising Private-Public Investment Towards Renewable Energy

With the increasing burden of fuel prices of non-renewable energy sources, governments as well as private entities, are significantly investing towards renewable energy infrastructure development. For instance, according to the American College Personnel Association, the United States has invested around USD 120 billion in new investment for renewable power infrastructure under development. Furthermore, the UK Government is also investing around 285 million Euros (around USD 321.8 million) towards green energy projects. Such investments are projected to drive the market in the forecast period.

High Growth Potential in Emerging Economies

The Asian countries such as India, China, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, etc., are among the leading economies in the adoption of renewable energy. China, Japan, South Korea, and India have already announced their net-zero emission target, which is projected to boost the renewable energy market in the forecast period. Several South Asian countries such as Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Nepal, Pakistan are also investing in inexhaustible, and repeatable energy sources such as solar, wind, hydro, and biomass, which is also driving the growth of the market.

Restraints

High Investments in Renewable Energy Infrastructure

The setting up of renewable energy infrastructure is expensive and involves huge investment, which is why it is highly concentrated among developed and upper middle-income countries such as India and China only. A commercial solar power plant, for instance, costs around USD 9,324,095 for 386 total generators for its total construction, according to ProEst. Even a single solar panel for residential use costs around USD 175 to USD 375 for 250 watts. The initial investment involved in renewable energy acts as a major restraining factor for the market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on Renewable Energy Market

The unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the growth of the renewable energy market during the initial outbreak. The lockdown restrictions hindered the renewable energy infrastructural development in several countries. The production and distribution of components of renewable energy such as solar panels, wind and water turbines, microinverters, racking systems, etc., were also hindered, which also halted the growth of the market. However, the market is projected to proliferate in the post-COVID-19 period as awareness towards sustainability and resources conservation spiked during this period.

Renewable Energy Market - By Type

Based on type, type, the renewable energy market is segmented into hydroelectric power, wind power, bioenergy, solar, geothermal, and others. The hydroelectric power segment holds the largest market share. According to a report by National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the world’s hydroelectric power plant market has a total capacity of around 675,000 megawatts, which is capable of producing 2.3 trillion kilowatt-hours of electricity each year. The high capacity of hydroelectric power acts as a major driving factor for its market growth.

Renewable Energy Market - By End-User

Based on end-user, end-user, the renewable energy market is segmented into residential, commercial, industrial, and others. The industrial segment dominates the market owing to the high investment required for setting up renewable energy infrastructure. The adoption of renewable energy proves to be economical for the industrial sector and cuts their overall operational cost in the long run, which favors the market growth. The residential sector also covers a substantial market share owing to government support and subsidies for home installations.

Renewable Energy Market - Regional Insights

Geographically, the renewable energy market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle-East & Africa. North America accounts for the largest share in the renewable energy market owing to the high consciousness towards sustainability and the need for non-renewable energy conservation. Furthermore, increasing private-public private partnership along with the government’s spending on renewable energy infrastructure development is also propelling the growth of the market in North America. However, the Asia-Pacific region is projected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period.

Competitive Landscape

The leading market players of the renewable energy market are First Solar Inc., Jinko Solar Holding Co. Ltd, Vestas Wind Systems A/S, Canadian Solar Inc., Orsted AS, Acciona Energia SA, EDF SA, Berkshire Hathway Energy, NextEra Energy Inc., Duke Energy Corporation, General Electric Company, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA, Innergex Renewable Energy, Invenergy, Tata Power Company Limited, and other prominent players.

The renewable energy market holds great future potential and is, therefore, highly fragmented with the presence of several established players and startups. The companies are significantly investing towards expanding their energy generation capacities. They are also attracting significant investments from public and private establishments to expand their product portfolio. Furthermore, the adoption of competitive strategies such as partnerships, mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, etc., is also prominent in this market.

Recent Development

  • In January 2022, 8minute Solar Energy, a US-based solar energy company, announced to have raised USD 400 million in financing from EIG, a US-based institutional investor, which is to be invested towards enhancing its portfolio of renewable energy assets.
  • In January 2022, MidAmerican Energy, a subsidiary of Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway Energy, announced its plans of USD 3.9 billion renewable energy project in the United States.
