“Growing concerns over environmental pollution coupled with government encouragement for the adoption of ecofriendly vehicles are anticipated to trigger the demand for solar vehicles globally.”
The global market is estimated to grow from 8,955 units by 2022 at a CAGR of 36.4% to reach 107,380 units by 2030. The consistent rise in emissions by automobiles has forced the usage of ecofriendly vehicles which also comply with the stringent emissions norms regulated by various governments. Also, major OEMs are focusing on developing zero-emission vehicles to reduce the use of fossil fuels and their subsequent emissions. These factors are anticipated to push the growth of the market. However, low operational efficiency of these vehicles is considered to be a major restraint for the growth of the market.

“BEV is the largest electric vehicle segment of the solar vehicle market during the forecast period.”
BEV is a pure electric vehicle in which the battery acts as a prime source of power for propulsion. Thus, the architecture of BEV is the most suitable for integrating solar panels to charge its battery through solar energy. Although, certain limitations such as time to recharge had made the BEV segment a less adopting variant. However, charging through photovoltaic cells could likely reduce the charging time and push the growth of the market. Therefore, the increase in the efficiency of BEVs through photovoltaic cells is the principal factor responsible for the growth of the BEV segment during the forecast period.

“Passenger car segment is expected to dominate the solar vehicle market.”
The huge amount of environmental pollution and diminishing fossil fuels reserves have forced the automotive researchers to look at solar powered cars as an alternate solution. Hence, the increasing demand for electric cars by consumers and several amendments in transport policies made by various governments to curb harmful emissions across the world are indirectly fuelling the growth of the passenger car segment. Solar power helps constantly charge the battery in vehicles and could bring down the charging time of these vehicles. The combination of all these factors is responsible for the growth of the passenger car segment of the market.
