DUBLIN, March 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Global Solar Street Lighting Market, By Type, By Component, By Application, Estimation & Forecast, 2017 - 2030" report has been added to's offering.

The global solar street lighting market held a market value of USD 3,972 million in 2021 and is estimated to reach USD 15,716.4 million by the year 2030. The market is projected to list a CAGR of 17.12% during the forecast period.

The solar street lighting industry is projected to grow at a substantial rate owing to the increasing focus on smart city building, rising inclination towards solar energy and other green and clean energy initiatives, and the rising support from government and non-government agencies. For instance, in September 2018, South Korea signed a Letter of Intent with Malaysia, to build a smart city in Kota Kinabalu, capital of Sabah, Malaysia. Such moves aid the market growth heavily.

The increasing strategic moves by the prominent players is boosting the market growth. For instance, in January 2020, SolarOne Solutions Inc., a US-based company, has been selected by the Eagle Butte community Center to install 80 off-grid solar streetlights. The former company's off-grid solar street lights run wholly on solar energy, and consequently have a zero-carbon footprint.

The market is expected to be negatively influenced by the heavy initial investment to be done by the companies. A lot of companies in the developing economies are skeptical about their return on investment owing to the presence of many top-notch giants in the marketspace.
