Global Solar Powered Car Market: Overview

  • According to the report, the global solar powered car market is likely to be driven by the demand for zero-emission cars.
  • Self-driving cars are more efficient and cost-effective, and curb transportation emissions.
  • Key automakers such as Sono Motors GmbH, and Lightyear are projected to offer solar powered cars post 2020 and 2021, respectively, which, in turn, is expected to drive the solar powered car market.

Expansion of the Global Solar Powered Car Market

  • The depletion of fossil fuel has prompted global automakers to search for a viable option to maintain their pace of progress and development. Solar powered cars is presently one of the best possible alternate solutions.
  • The demand for zero-emission vehicles has compelled the automotive industry to design and develop new alternate technologies, such as solar powered vehicles that use solar radiant energy as a form of fuel to drive the vehicle.
  • Additionally, the light weight of the car makes it fast and highly efficient as compared to the conventional fossil fuel powered car.

Based on material, the global solar powered car market has been bifurcated into crystalline silicon solar cells and thin-film solar cells. The crystalline silicon solar cells segment is estimated to dominate the solar powered car market during the initial stages. This is primarily due to their advantages such as high efficiency, high stability, high reliability, and easy to fabricate. The segment is projected to dominate and account for over 98% share of the market by 2020. The crystalline silicon solar cells segment is anticipated to lose market share, as these are expensive and possess a low absorption coefficient as compared to that of thin-film solar cells.
