    Artificial light-harvesting systems (LHSs) have drawn increasing research interest in recent times due to the energy crisis worldwide. Concurrently, macrocycle-based host–guest interactions have played an important role in the development of supramolecular chemistry. In recent years, studies towards artificial LHSs driven by macrocycle-based host–guest interactions are gradually being disclosed. In this mini-review, we briefly introduce the burgeoning progress of artificial LHSs driven by host–guest interactions. We believe that an increasing number of reports of artificial LHSs driven by host–guest interactions will appear in the near future and will provide a viable alternative for the future production of renewable energy.
