According to the report, global thermoelectric generator market was valued at around USD 279.3 million in 2015 and is expected to generate revenue of USD 610.0 million by end of 2021, growing at a CAGR of slightly above 13.8% between 2016 and 2021.
The thermoelectric generator is also called as seebeck generator. It is a solid state device that converts heat into electrical energy through a phenomenon called the seebeck effect or thermoelectric effect. It is largely used as portable power source to charge and operate various pads, phones, 12v batteries, small refrigerators while traveling long distances and in remote camping sites. Thermoelectric generators are primarily used as remote and off-grid power generators for unmanned sites.
