Foldable solar panels are part of the larger trend of portable solar panels. While portable solar panels have been popular among campers and hikers for years, they are now gaining popularity among remote workers who want to work from remote locations or while on the road. This trend is often referred to as “vanlife,” and involves living and working out of a van or other mobile vehicle.

As a result of this trend, search interest for portable solar panels has been steadily increasing over the last five years. With more people looking for ways to work and live remotely, the demand for portable power sources such as foldable solar panels is likely to continue to grow.
