Hydroelectric power was the dominant source of energy in 2012 due to a large pre-installed base capacity. Solar PV is expected to be the fastest growing renewable source of energy during 2013 to 2019. Solar PV market would cross wind energy by 2017, in terms of revenue. Demand for solar PV is led by its increased efficiency and declining costs. Inverters form approximately 8%-10% of the total cost for solar installation, which is a significant portion.

The global market for solar PV inverters declined in 2013 in terms of revenue despite rise in PV inverter shipments. However, for the year 2014 and beyond the solar PV inverter market would experience a steady growth in revenue as the average selling prices stabilize. In recent years, residential sector has been a fast emerging end-user in terms of green energy consumption and this trend is expected to continue over the coming years. There has been significant growth in residential photovoltaic installations led by increasingly attractive cost economics and rational net metering policies. Further, growth of the green energy market in the commercial sector is led by increased government regulations and compliance requirements.
