Growth Factors

The study covers all the key trends and important driving factors that will have an impact on the expansion of the India Solar Energy industry throughout the anticipated time period. It also emphasizes the challenges and opportunities anticipated to have an impact on the market within the aforementioned time period.

The Indian government’s favorable policies for the generation of solar electricity are one of the main industry growth drivers. For instance, in April 2021, MNRE authorized a Production Linked Incentive (PLI) Scheme with an investment of INR 4,500 crore called the “National Program on High-Efficiency Solar PV Modules.”

The program offers Production Linked Incentive (PLI) on sales of high-efficiency solar PV modules as one of its many measures to stimulate the establishment of integrated manufacturing facilities. In the upcoming years, it seeks to improve both domestic manufacturing capacity and exports. Additionally, the Solar Energy Corporation of India, which is currently in charge of the development of the whole renewable energy industry, received an allocation of Rs. 1,000 crores (US$ 132 million) in the Union Budget 2022–23. The government included $2.57 billion (Rs. 19,500 crores) in the budget for a PLI program to increase the production of high-efficiency solar modules.
