Home>Industry Reports>Saudi Arabia Photovoltaics Market Assessment, Opportunities, and Forecast, 2016-2030F

The photovoltaic (PV) market in Saudi Arabia is experiencing significant growth and offers promising prospects as it is seeking to diversify its energy sources and reduce its dependence on fossil fuels which has led to a strong focus on renewable energy, including solar power. The Saudi Arabia Photovoltaics market is projected to reach USD 17.16 billion by 2030 from USD 3.01 billion in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 24.31% for the forecast period between 2023 and 2030.

Furthermore, the Saudi government has set ambitious targets for solar energy generation. By 2032, they are planning to install around 58.7 GW of solar capacity, which would account for a significant portion of the country's electricity needs. The government has also introduced favourable policies and incentives to attract local and international investments in the PV sector, thereby expediting the market growth. Saudi Arabia has one of the highest solar irradiation levels in the world, with ample sunlight throughout the year. This makes it highly favorable for solar energy generation and encourages the development of large-scale solar projects.

For example, the Sakaka Solar Power Plant is one of the largest photovoltaic power plants in the world and is situated in Sakaka City, Al Jouf Province, Saudi Arabia. It is a photovoltaic (PV) solar venture with a capacity of 300MW. It was commissioned in April 2021 by ACWA Power (70%) and AlGihaz Renewable Energy Company, a subsidiary of AlGihaz (30%). The power plant is interconnected with the national electricity grid and has the capability to provide clean energy to over 75,000 households in Saudi Arabia. By doing so, it will prevent the emission of over 430,000 tons of carbon dioxide (CO₂) annually. Throughout its lifespan, the project is projected to offset roughly 10.5 million tons of CO₂ and avoid the consumption of more than 50 million barrels of diesel.

Rise in the adoption rate of Bifacial Solar Panels

Bifacial solar panels have the advantage of generating electricity from both sides, allowing them to capture additional sunlight reflected from the ground or other surfaces. This results in increased energy production compared to traditional mono-facial panels particularly in areas where sunlight reflection is significant, such as desert regions like Saudi Arabia.

The Sudair PV solar power plant is currently under development in the Sudair industrial city, located about 150km from Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. The project is set to occupy a site spanning 30.2 square kilometres. The solar power plant will utilize bi-facial PV solar panels mounted on pile-driven structures. These solar panels will feature tracking technology to optimize their exposure to sunlight, and an automatic robotic cleaning system will be employed to maintain their efficiency. The solar power plant will utilize bi-facial PV solar panels mounted on pile-driven structures. These solar panels will feature tracking technology to optimize their exposure to sunlight, and an automatic robotic cleaning system will be employed to maintain their efficiency.  Thus, the rise in the adoption rate of Bifacial Solar Panels is augmenting the market growth.

Increase in the Number of Rooftop Solar PV Installations

Rooftop solar PV installations in Saudi Arabia are gaining traction as part of the country's efforts to promote renewable energy and diversify its energy sources. The vast arid regions in Saudi Arabia are considered a great hub for solar energy generation as they are rich in sunlight which allows for the diversification of the domestic power supply in Saudi Arabia. Moreover, the construction and architecture of houses in Saudi Arabia are such that they get good rooftop spaces which are largely suitable to install solar power systems.

The Saudi Arabian government has implemented various initiatives and incentives to promote the adoption of rooftop solar PV systems. These include net metering programs, feed-in tariffs, and favorable regulations that facilitate the connection of rooftop solar systems to the grid. These incentives have encouraged building owners to invest in solar PV installations.

Government Regulations

The Saudi government has set ambitious targets for solar energy generation and has implemented substantial measures to tackle obstacles and promote the growth of renewable energy initiatives.  By 2032, they plan to install around 58.7 GW of solar capacity, which would account for a significant portion of the country's electricity needs. The government has also introduced favourable policies and incentives to attract local and international investments in the PV sector. The Saudi Arabian government created the Saudi Renewable Energy Project Development Office, which is responsible for supervising the advancement of renewable energy projects in the country.

The launch of Solar Energy Plan aims to deploy 27.5 GW of solar power capacity by 2030. Moreover, Saudi Arabia has set its sights on establishing a greenhouse gas certificates market in 2023, as part of its commitment to decreasing carbon emissions. Anticipated growth in the renewable energy sector of the Kingdom includes the addition of 10 GW of renewable capacity between 2022 and 2027, primarily led by solar photovoltaic (PV) projects. This expansion will be facilitated through four procurement mechanisms: competitive auctions, unsolicited bilateral utility contracts, corporate power purchase agreements (PPAs), and state-owned initiatives.

Impact of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on various sectors worldwide, including the photovoltaic (PV) industry in Saudi Arabia. Economic uncertainties resulting from the pandemic affected financing options for PV projects In Saudi Arabia. Investors and financial institutions may have become more cautious, leading to potential challenges in securing funding for new solar initiatives. The pandemic may have caused delays in the construction and commissioning of PV projects due to labour shortages, restrictions on movement, and the implementation of social distancing measures on worksites. These delays could have impacted the deployment of new solar installations.
