Global off-grid solar market report semi - annual sales and impact data


In the first half of 2020, global sales of off-grid solar lighting products fell 26% compared to the same period in 2019, with only 3 million units sold. These were the lowest volumes recorded since 2014. While all off-grid solar product categories were affected by the challenging conditions, declines in sales of entry-level products, often purchased by customers living on the lowest incomes, were most severe. Sales of portable lanterns without mobile charging dropped below 1 million for the first time since record keeping began. Data has been grouped into product categories to present sales in a segmented manner that provides the most value and information to the market. This means segmenting the off-grid solar lighting products in 7 categories and each appliances product in several sub-categories varying depending on the appliance type. Please refer to Tables 6 and 7 for more details.
