Market Outlook

According to Future Market Consulting analysis, Global Solar Water Heaters Market size was valued at USD 7.78 Billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 18.91 Billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 8.66 % during the forecast period from 2022 to 2030.

The energy supplies are running out quickly. These procedures use less energy when photovoltaic energy is used. There is a backup power supply for this technology in case there is insufficient heat. A cheap and effective appliance is the solar water warmer. Due to their energy and cost efficiency, solar water heaters are now being adopted and used for household purposes in more homes. Solar water heaters are extensively utilized in the domestic, commercial, and industrial sectors.

The worldwide market for solar water heaters is being driven by the rising demand for environmentally friendly and energy-efficient heating options. According to reports, solar water heaters are considerably more energy-efficient than traditional water heaters. The costs of solar water heaters are expected to vary between 25 and 50 percent lower compared to conventional water heaters, according to IEA research (International Energy Agency). The market for solar water heaters is anticipated to increase in the upcoming years due to their own zero-carbon emission rate. As per the "Kyoto Protocol," that has adopted by government agencies from all over the world and restricts emissions of carbon dioxide within each nation's commercial and industrial zones, solar water heaters are forcing the business to replace the conventional water heaters.

The market for solar water heaters is likely to be driven by the rising demand in the domestic and non-residential sectors for sustainable and environment, reliable, and economical methods of water heating options. Solar-powered water heaters have cheaper run costs than conventional heating systems, varying from 25-40% in the wintertime and 75% in the summer. The utilization for energy-efficient solutions is being driven by rising infrastructure spending as well as a growing understanding of the best ways to employ sustainable technologies successfully. The use of sustainable solutions will be encouraged by incentives like tax relief, subsidies, and tax credits, which will enhance the prognosis for the market.

Market Dynamics


  • Growing demand for environmentally friendly and energy-efficient heating solutions.
  • Replacement of traditional thermal sources is required.


  • High implementation costs at first.
  • Unstable primary energy supply.


  • The government has raised funding and reduced taxes to encourage the use of renewable energy sources.

Segment Insights

  • Based on Collector Type, Installations in residences and small businesses are appropriate for these collectors. Adoption of a product depends heavily on variables like cost efficiency, ease of installation, and simplicity of design. Additionally, the segment will grow as a result of ongoing technological developments in proposal is designed that seek to boost efficiency.
  • The thermosiphon segment controls the industry in terms of systems. Due to their small footprint, Thermosiphon solar-powered water heaters are appropriate for hot temperatures in nations like Australia, Japan, Israel, and India. The segment's development in the upcoming years will be fueled by this. The market climate would be even better if combustible liquids and gases could be circulated in applications such as heating and cooling without the use of mechanical pumps.
  • Commercial leads the industry in terms of application. More financing will be provided for the construction of infrastructure, such as governmental buildings, academic institutions, and shopping centers, which will boost consumer acceptance of the products. The business environment would be enhanced more by green construction standards and regulations that would cut carbon emissions and promote adoption of clean technologies.

Recent Developments

  • With the help of its cutting-edge technology, Yingli Green Energy Holding Co. Ltd. has spent $2 billion in a production plant that will create multi-crystalline silicon PV modules.
  • SunEarth & Nyle Water Heating System unveiled an adaptable series for the commercial sector with up to a 90% reduction in operation cost over traditional water heaters by utilizing solar energy for water heaters and heat pump efficiency.
