Pune, India, Aug. 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Middle East & Africa solar photovoltaic (PV) market size was USD 2.19 billion in 2020. The market is projected to grow from USD 3.47 billion in 2021 to USD 22.68 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 30.8% in the 2021-2028 period. This information is published by Fortune Business Insights™ in its report titled, “Middle East & Africa Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Market, 2021-2028.”

As per our report, the capability of solar PV to be economical and serve the demand from the vast population is estimated to fuel demand in the market. Solar parks and distinct solar installations can avail the power demand for a large chunk of the population and a single house accordingly. Solar installations help to decline the rate of electricity per unit. Incentives given by the government for solar power generation are the key factors that interest consumers to mount solar at a singular level. Coupled with no carbon releases, this is among the chief causes that have resulted in the development of the solar PV market worldwide. This is estimated to drive the solar power installations in the Middle East region during the forecast period.

Pitfalls & Challenges

Installation Area Constraint and High Operation & Maintenance Cost May Hinder Industry Growth

COVID-19 Outbreak Regulations to Hinder Market Growth in MEA

The global health crisis triggered by the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in an adverse impact on almost every sector and industry. The Middle East & Africa solar photovoltaic (PV) industry is greatly reliant on imports from other countries and also technical workforce, which mostly comes from EPC contractors. With the national lockdowns announced and the absence of workers, the investment movement for solar in the Middle East is likely to observe a collapse with a postponement in distribution time for current schemes. In accordance with the Arab Petroleum Investments Corporation (APICORP), the energy investments in the MENA region as expected to fall by USD 73 billion between 2020 and 2024. Moreover, like other nations, the Middle East countries too observed an extensive reduction in solar energy installation volume in comparison to the prior year.

Drivers and Restraints

Rising Government Practices to Maximize Energy from Solar Set to Aid Market Growth

The world has made major changes, such as the shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. The identical structure has been observed in the Middle East & Africa solar photovoltaic (PV) industry with energy requirement for renewables growing and governments concentrating on obtaining extreme conceivable energy from these sources. The governments in the region aim to endorse solar at a distinct level and are also planning to offer enticements and aids to people to decrease the usage of fossil fuels.

For instance, in UAE, according to the small-scale solar PV Energy Netting Regulation sanctioned in Abu Dhabi in 2017, holders of the solar PV panels are indebted to be accredited for any excess production beyond use in their properties. This guideline is applicable to proprietors, manufacturers, supply companies, approved contractors, or other people involved in the association of small-scale PV systems to the circulation system or distribution firms. This is expected to thrust the Middle East & Africa solar photovoltaic (PV) market growth in the foreseeable future.

Country Insights

Surging Dependence on Solar Power Systems in U.A.E., Algeria, and Egypt to Bolster Growth

The regional market size was worth USD 9.85 billion in 2019. The market is being carefully observed in several nations such as UAE, Egypt, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Iraq, Ghana, Tunisia, Namibia, Algeria, Nigeria, and the other parts of MEA. At present, United Arab Emirates (UAE), South Africa, Egypt, and Algeria are the nations in the region that have perceived an augmentation in solar power systems over the past years.

Extensive funding by numerous companies to build novel solar structures to regularly supply power to countless commercial and industrial segments is prepared to upgrade the electricity production technology blend in this region. The lack of electricity in several African countries is a major source of encouragement for investors to invest in such solar projects. For example, as per the data provided by the World Bank as of July 2020, considerably economically contributing nations such as Nigeria and Kenya have a mere 56.5% and 75% of the total population with admission to electricity as of the year 2018, respectively. This factor would propel the Middle East and Africa solar photovoltaic (PV) industry.
