With a strong local manufacturing base and large population, India has a large and growing weak-grid appliance market. However, insufficient data on the types and performance of appliances available in the retail market poses a challenge for policy-makers, manufacturers, distributors, and other market actors to make well-informed decisions.

Since 2018, Efficiency for Access has been conducting market scoping surveys in 10 countries- India, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Nigeria, Cote D’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Kenya, Myanmar, Tanzania, and Pakistan. These surveys provide illuminating insights into the local intricacies of the solar markets in each of the countries profiled and inform market actors on how to best position themselves.

The Off- and Weak Grid Appliance Market Country Profile for India summarises data collected from retail shop owners, off-grid solar product distributors, and appliance consumers to provide relevant market and appliance technical specification data.
