Competitive vendor landscape

The global market for string inverters is highly diverse and is characterized by the presence of many international and domestic players. Intense competition, rapid advances in technology, frequent changes in policies imposed by governments worldwide, and environmental regulations are some of the challenges that hinder the growth of the market. The market is also consolidated in nature with large players that have the least regional presence occupying larger market shares.

According to Thanikachalam Chandrasekaran, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on energy storage, “The global market for string inverters is susceptible to many technical and financial challenges, which facilitates inorganic growth within the market.
