Global solar micro inverter market was valued at US$ 977.5 Million in 2018 and is anticipated to reach US$ 5,604.6 Million by 2025 displaying explosive CAGR of 28.4% over the forecast period 2019-2025. Energy supply from renewable sources forms an essential part of energy distribution, particularly when there are issues pertaining to sustainable environment. In this regard, microinverters are of great help. Traditional solar systems comprise a single inverter and in case of any failure of inverter, there remains no backup of energy transfer. Therefore, microinverters are an alternative energy source. A solar micro-inverter, or simply microinverter, is a plug-and-play device used in photovoltaics, that converts direct current generated by a single solar module to alternating current. Unlike conventional string/central inverters, a microinverter works on Module Level Power Electronics i.e. power conversion takes place at individual module level. This mitigates the negative effect of module mismatch and improves the overall efficiency of the system. Microinverters also enable module-level monitoring, easier installation, enhanced design flexibility and better safety than conventional inverters. The solar microinverter market is driven by constant R&D activities and significant reduction in the costs of microinverters. The solar micro inverter market also receives a great boost due to its compact size and versatility. Further, increasing requirement of consumers, based on modularity, safety, and maximum energy harvest will continue to drive the market at a considerable pace in coming years.

Owing to increasing demand, a lot of innovation is taking place in the solar micro-inverter industry. For example, Tesla has launched a solar roof. This solar roof consists of the power wall battery, turning sunlight into electricity. The solar roof is made of tempered glass tiles and these tiles are stronger than non-solar tiles and regular plate glass. The micro inverter addresses many of the shortcomings of central inverters. Microinverters minimize the issue of one module in shade affecting the entire array. A homeowner whose roof may get some shade throughout the day has a good reason to consider micro inverters. Due to the varying use of micro inverters across the world, global players are concentrating on regions where awareness about using renewable energy resources is higher. Robust adoption of PV storage systems in the U.S. will continue to fuel demand for solar micro inverters in North America.
