The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the market in 2020, resulting in a sharp drop in year-over-year growth. However, companies in the market have used a variety of strategies to improve their operations. Digital acceleration, which was part of many entities' growth strategies and operating models during the COVID-19 pandemic, is a prominent trend characterizing the solar watch market outlook from 2022 to 2030. However, the rapid shift of businesses to online operations has created opportunities for the growth of the solar watch market.


Increase in User Experienced Due to Design and Technological Features in Displays of Solar Watches

The technology in solar watches has evolved over time. The basic three-stage process of working of the solar watch is the collection of solar energy through the solar cell placed on the dial of the watch, which is generally made of silicon due to its high potential for harnessing solar energy. The energy is then transferred from the first layer of silicon to the second layer, and from there through a wire down to the charged battery. After charging, the third step is similar to any other watch in that it performs the function by using the stored energy. A solar-powered watch is a watch that is good for the environment. The technology of solar watches combines the best features of all other movements, such as mechanical and automatic movement longevity and quartz movement accuracy. As technology has advanced, people now have smartwatches powered by solar and GPS. The Power Glass solar charging has many features such as a smartwatch mode and GPS mode. A full-color, always-on display is also included. A 5-button touchscreen is also available. The solar-powered smartwatch, like any other smartwatch, has a heart rate variability (HRV) status. Other features include built-in music and smart notifications for calls, text messages, social media updates, and alerts from iOS or Android smartphones. This watch can also be customized with a variety of personalization options.


Government Initiatives or Regulations Towards Promoting Use of Solar Technology Drive Market Growth

Government initiatives or regulations promoting the use of solar technology are a major driver of solar watch market growth. The government has placed a high priority on enacting regulations to reduce carbon emissions, as well as promoting favorable incentives or schemes to encourage the shift of end-use sectors toward solar-powered devices. The Indian government revealed its plans to install 100 GW of solar energy capacity by the end of 2022 in December 2019. Solar projects that are completed during this time period will be exempt from Inter State Transmission System Charges, as well as 100% foreign direct investment (FDI). Such projects aimed at increasing solar capacity will aid in the long-term transition from traditional power-consuming devices to solar-powered watches, owing to benefits such as extended battery life, lower replacement costs, and others.


Presence of Counterfeit Products Hamper Market Growth

Global trade and technology growth have benefited many markets around the world, but they have also had significant negative consequences. Businesses spend a lot of money, time, and resources to protect their brand and trademarks. Despite these safeguards, the counterfeit market is rapidly expanding. The globalization of trade and communication has provided organized crime with unprecedented opportunities to expand its economic influence through illicit trade and counterfeiting. These counterfeits, which resemble their genuine counterparts uncannily, are widely available online for a fraction of the price of the original.
