Solar Energy Market in Japan: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges
The high electricity demand is notably driving the solar energy market growth in Japan, although factors such as the rising adoption of alternate renewable sources may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the solar energy industry in Japan. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.
Key Solar Energy Market Driver in Japan
The high electricity demand is one of the key drivers supporting the solar energy market growth in Japan. The households sector showed an increase in energy consumption year-on-year due to the increased time spent at home because of COVID-19 in 2020 and other impacts. Japan's power sector has recorded rising sales by small-scale power retailers over the past five years. The marginal rise, despite the expanding market share, shows that the country's retailers increased direct purchases from power generators to ensure stable supplies in response to government recommendations for preventive measures to avoid power shortages. These increased demands contribute to the adoption of solar energy, which is likely to continue during the forecast period.
Key Solar Energy Market Trend in Japan
The increase in solar PV installations is one of the key trends contributing to the solar energy market growth in Japan. For instance, the new aim was announced by Japan's environment and trade ministries, after the announcement that the country would cut emissions by 46% by 2030 when compared to 2013 levels. Japan aims to hit the target by installing solar panels on 50% of central government and municipality buildings, adding 6GW of capacity, boosting solar on corporate buildings and car parks, which will add 10GW, and adding 4GW in public land and promotion areas in 1,000 Japanese towns and cities. Thus, the Japanese government intends to increase the amount of land available for solar projects while also investing in technology that will make agricultural solar farms easier to implement. Such initiatives will drive market growth during the forecast period.
Key Solar Energy Market Challenge in Japan
The rising adoption of alternate renewable sources is one of the factors hindering the solar energy market growth in Japan. Japan is one of the countries with the most abundant geothermal resources. Geothermal district heating systems might be developed in Japan's snowy regions from Hokkaido to the west coast of Honshu, similar to Iceland, where more than 90% of all homes are heated with geothermal hot water and generate power using Japanese geothermal technology. For instance, in southern Iceland, the Blue Lagoon is a geothermal spa. The spa is situated in a lava field on the Reykjanes Peninsula, in a geothermal power-friendly area, and is fed by water from the nearby Svartsengi geothermal power plant. Thus, the increasing use of alternate renewable resources will decline the demand for solar energy and thereby, hampering the market growth.
This solar energy market in Japan analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2022-2026.

The solar energy market share growth in Japan by the utility segment will be significant during the forecast period. For decades, utility-scale solar has provided consistent, clean electricity at a low cost. One of the quickest ways to reduce carbon emissions and put Japan on the path to a clean energy future is to develop utility-scale solar power. Solar technologies such as primary PV and CSP can be used in a utility-scale solar power plant. Moreover, many utility-scale solar systems can feature energy storage capacity, which delivers power when the sun is not shining while simultaneously increasing grid dependability and resiliency. Such factors will drive the segment growth during the forecast period.
This report provides an accurate prediction of the contribution of all the segments to the growth of the solar energy market size in Japan and actionable market insights on post COVID-19 impact on each segment.
