Report Description

Solar Street Lighting Market was valued at US$ 9 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 19% over the forecast period (2021-2027). Solar street lights are present on street edges just like the traditional street lights but are powered by photovoltaic panels which is usually integrated in the light pole as well. The photovoltaic cells are connected to LED or fluorescent cells and contain a rechargeable battery. Most solar panels can automatically turn on and off using an outdoor light sensor. Solar street lights charge using the solar energy during the day and turn on during the night. The batteries are designed to last the entire night. Some solar panels can last for more than one night after a single charge, these are used in less sunny places. In windy regions the solar panels are equipped with flat panels that helps them cope with the wind.


Key factors influencing the market growth include growing industrialization around the world, the demand for energy and infrastructure is increasing. With the help of solar street lighting this demand can be fulfilled. Solar street lights can help light up remote aeras without the need for grid connection. Additionally, once installed, solar lights are highly cost efficient and thus affordable by people in the rural areas. Furthermore, the idea of renewable resources is also being adopted by many countries and this is also helping in increasing the popularity of solar street lighting technologies. Government encouragement is also increasing the adoption of solar street lighting. For example, in India, the government provides 90% subsidy for the lights that cost about US$ 350 and the rest US$ 35 is contributed by the residents.

Cost of Traditional vs. Solar Street Lights (US$), 2021
