The Japan Renewable Energy Market Size was valued at USD multimillion in 2022 and is expected To Grow at a CAGR of 3.5% during the forecast period 2022-2032.


Market Overview

Renewable energy is derived from natural sources such as wind and sunlight. Renewable energy sources include solar, geothermal, wind, biofuel, hydropower, and ocean power. Renewable energy is now used in the heating, electrical, cooling, and transportation sectors. Renewable energy accounts for around 7% of Japan energy consumption. Renewable energy is more costly than fossil fuel energy. The most important issue driving the use of renewable energies is the attribution of global warming owing to carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the burning of fossil fuels. Issues about reducing greenhouse gas emissions, an increase in the search for energy security, aversion to traditional nuclear power, and a lack of progress in the application of nuclear power are expected to drive demand for geothermal power during the forecast period. Governments in both emerging and wealthy countries have concentrated on encouraging renewable energy sources due to increased production efficiency, less pollution, and cheap maintenance costs. All of these reasons, taken together, increase demand for renewable energy, hence boosting Japan renewable energy market growth.

Driving Factors

Rising demand for clean energy sources is expected to boost expansion in Japan's renewable energy sector in the long run. Furthermore, favorable government initiatives and improvements in renewable energy technology are likely to promote the market's growth. On the other side, rising natural gas penetration for power production is predicted to constrain Japan's renewable energy sector throughout the projection period. Also, Technological improvements in solar PV production are projected to generate profitable growth prospects for the Japanese renewable energy industry throughout the forecast period. Moreover, the decreasing prices of renewable energy and the rising competitiveness of battery storage systems are favorably benefiting the expansion of the renewable energy business.


Market Segment

  • In 2022, the solar segment is dominating the market with the largest market share over the forecast period.

Based on the type, Japan renewable energy market is segmented into solar, wind, hydro, bioenergy, and other types. Among these segments, solar is the largest market share during the forecast period. Due to the dropping costs of solar modules and the adaptability of these systems for different applications such as electricity production, water heating, and so on, the solar energy category is expected to have the biggest market share over the projection period. As of 2021, Japan had installed 74.1 GW of solar energy capacity, entirely from solar PV, and the country is the fastest-growing in terms of solar PV promotion. With 45% of solar cells made in Japan, it leads the worldwide photovoltaic market. As a result, increased investments in the solar energy sector are likely to boost the growth of the Japanese renewable energy market throughout the forecast period.


  • In 2022, the residential segment is dominating the highest market growth during the forecast period

Based on the end users, the Japan renewable energy market is bifurcated into residential, industrial, commercial, & others. Throughout these segments, the residential segment is the largest market share value during the forecast period. Geothermal energy is in high demand for heating applications in the residential sector in Japan. Because of increased energy consumption, demand for geothermal power is likely to rise dramatically in the residential segment shortly. Increased consumer awareness in established and emerging economies is predicted to drive the adoption of renewable energy sources throughout the forecast period, resulting in the residential sector dominating the market during the forecast period.
