The solar air conditioning market involves the use of solar energy to power air conditioners and cool indoor spaces. Solar air conditioners utilize photovoltaic panels to convert sunlight into electricity that can be used to power vapor-compression or absorption refrigeration cycle air conditioners. This eliminates the need for grid-supplied electricity and dependence on fossil fuels. Solar air conditioners are increasingly being adopted for residential and commercial buildings due to their lower operating costs and minimal environmental impact. They provide comfort cooling powered by clean energy and thus help reduce carbon footprint.
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.
Growing awareness about the negative environmental consequences of excessive reliance on non-renewable energy sources is driving greater adoption of solar and other renewable energy technologies across the globe. Government policies and initiatives in various countries aimed at promoting the use of green and clean energy are encouraging more businesses and homeowners to incorporate solar power systems in their operations. Similarly, solar air conditioners are witnessing heightened demand as they allow for environment-friendly cooling without carbon emissions. Moreover, solar air conditioning units prove highly cost-effective over the long-run as they eliminate energy costs after the initial investment. Replacing traditional grid-tied AC units with solar-powered ones helps substantially reduce electricity bills. These financial and ecological benefits are boosting the sales and demand for solar air conditioners worldwide.
The global solar air conditioning market can be segmented by Type, Cooling Capacity, End use and Region. On the basis of Type, the market is dominated by split solar air conditioners sub segment as it is easy to install and maintenance free. These conditioners can be placed both indoor and outdoor depending upon the requirement.
Political: Favorable government policies to promote solar energy usage through subsidies and tax incentives are boosting the solar air conditioning market. Many governments have set strict carbon emission reduction targets encouraging adoption of green technologies.
