Spotlight: Global Off-Grid Solar Market Report H2 2016

The latest edition of the Global Off-Grid Solar Market Report was released in early May 2017 and includes performance data from 55 companies from the period of July to December 2016.

At the global level, about 3.77 million off-grid solar products were sold in the second half of 2016.

  • Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia account for approximately 1.87 million units (50%) and 1.41 million units (38%) sold, respectively.
  • The Middle East and North Africa region was the third largest, with a significantly lower reported number of products sold at 240,738 (6%).

Pay-As-You-Go (PAYGO) revenues are reported as US$ 41.5 million in H2 2016. This includes sales revenues reported, covering deposits, top-up fees, service fees and any other revenues originating from new and existing customers. However, this amount significantly underestimates the total PAYGO revenues for the sector, as not all PAYGO companies chose to report revenues.
