The Lighting Global/GOGLA 2018 Global Off-Grid Solar Market Trends Report is now available. This is the fourth report in a biennial series established over the past 8 years as the report of record for the off-grid solar industry.
The 2018 publication takes stock of the industry across six axes: market fundamentals, sales, the competitive landscape, finance, the enabling environment, and impact. It provides in-depth analysis on current market dynamics, projections for the coming five years, and a blueprint for how actors in this market can compete in a swiftly evolving industry ecosystem.
The report was officially launched at the 2018 Global Off-Grid Solar Forum and Expo, which took place January 22-24 in Hong Kong. Held for the first time in East Asia, this event convened over 600 industry stakeholders from more than 60 countries including manufacturers, distributors, investors, entrepreneurs, donors, and policymakers. The event also served as an opportunity for 50 companies to showcase their latest off-grid solar products, services, and innovations at the industry’s leading exhibition.
