Industry Trend Analysis
The global Solar Pumps Market has encountered significant development in the recent years and is foreseen to witness tremendous growth in the following years. Rising agricultural activities along with water pumping for irrigation derived from renewable energy is anticipated to fuel the global solar pumps market during the forecast years. Nations such as India, China, Bangladesh, Namibia, Pakistan, Nigeria, Morocco, and Kenya have set objectives to trim down fossil fuel imports as well as gain fiscally from it. These areas have plentiful solar energy supply with an immense renewable energy exploration potential. This factor is anticipated to boost global solar pump industry growth during the forecast years. Solar pumps are mainly utilized for drinking water and irrigation purposes. They are utilized in rural and remote areas where off-grid energy in the electricity form is not offered. Utilization of solar energy to propel pumps cuts down the working cost, which is mostly consumed in the diesel form. Strict government regulations to trim down carbon footprints into the environment are predicted to boost the growth of the solar pumps market during the next few years. Solar energy utilized for water pumps does not produce any carbon footprints into the environment and renders a clean energy source. Though, elevated initial cost relative to traditional diesel pumps is anticipated to remain a major challenge for industry participants.
Product Outlook and Trend Analysis
In 2014, DC suction came out as the major product for solar pumps and reported for around 80% of overall solar pumps market. Rising drip irrigation activities, especially in developing countries of the Middle East & Africa and Asia Pacific, is anticipated to propel solar powered DC suction pumps during the forecast years. AC submersible pumps are anticipated to experience the major growth rate throughout the projected period. Rising demand for advanced efficiency solar pumps especially in emerging countries like Bangladesh and India is projected to fuel the demand for AC submersible pumps during the forecast years. AC submersible pumps are specifically designed to impel groundwater from deeper boreholes or wells where DC suction pumps cannot be employed.
Application Outlook and Trend Analysis
In 2014, agriculture segment was the ruled application section of solar pumps and reported for 60% of the global solar pumps industry. The global rise in agricultural activities along with water needed for irrigation is projected to fuel solar pumps industry for this application segment. Government grants to solar pump manufacturers and farmers especially in developing countries of Asia Pacific region are anticipated to fuel the growth of the global solar pump market during the next few years for agricultural application. Continuous and clean water supply is essential to a remote place of diverse regions where the supply of electricity is an issue and using diesel pumps turns out to be costly. This factor is projected to boost the global solar pumps market during the forecast period since these places have immense prospective to explore renewable energy in the solar form.
Regional Outlook and Trend Analysis
In 2013, Asia Pacific region came out as the leading regional solar pump market and reported for around 30% of overall market volume. Rising government grants and a decline in import of fossil fuel for farming activities is anticipated to boost solar pump market in the region during the forecast years. Growing agricultural activities along with increasing government grants in the financial incentives form are estimated to fuel the growth of the solar pumps market across Asia Pacific region. Economies in this region like India, China, Pakistan, and Bangladesh are key agricultural regions with plentiful solar energy availability. Africa &The Middle East are also experiencing considerable growth during the forecast years. The modification in the trend towards abbreviating dependency on fossil fuels importing in the butane and diesel form for their main requirement for energy to produce electricity for drinking water and agriculture.
