Solar air conditioning works through photovoltaic panels mounted on rooftops or walls that convert sunlight directly into electricity to power an air conditioner unit. As power outages are not an issue, solar air conditioners provide reliable cooling without relying on fossil fuel-generated electricity from utilities. The units are completely self-sufficient and have zero carbon footprint. Solar air conditioning solutions are well-suited for commercial and residential buildings looking to reduce electricity bills and lessen their environmental impact. With the demand for sustainable cooling on the rise due to global warming concerns, renewable energy HVAC technologies like solar air conditioning are increasingly being adopted.
The global solar air conditioning market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2.91 Billion in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.2% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Market key trends:
One of the key trends driving growth in the solar air conditioning market is the rising need for sustainable and eco-friendly cooling amidst growing energy prices and carbon emissions norms. Various governments across the world have introduced tax incentives, rebate programs and net-metering policies promoting renewable energy use in the building sector. Solar rooftop installation programs in numerous countries have simplified processes and reduced costs, boosting commercial viability of solar air conditioners globally. Technological innovations with higher efficiency photovoltaic panels and improved inverter designs have also expanded the potential installation locations and use cases for solar cooling. Manufacturers are focusing on developing cost-competitive products with advanced features to appeal to mass market customers.
