Photovoltaic Systems Market: PV Solar Cells & Modules Industry Analysis and Forecasts 2017

Share Article adds new market research report “Global Markets and Technologies for Photovoltaic Systems” to its store. This report determines the current status of the global market for photovoltaics (PV) and assesses its growth potential over a five-year period from 2012 to 2017.

Global revenues from solar cells and modules totaled nearly $38.7 billion in 2011 and should decline to $28.6 billion in 2012. Total revenues are expected to reach $78.1 billion in 2017 after increasing at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.3%. Europe holds the largest share of the market and should increase from nearly $16.7 billion in 2012 to $35.1 billion in 2017, a CAGR of 16.1%. Asia is expected to increase from nearly $8 billion in 2012 to $27 billion in 2017, a CAGR of 27.6%.

This Photovoltaic Systems market study presents current and emerging technologies, details of the industry structure (e.g., the leading players in equipment and materials) and analyzes the competitive environment, major applications, current and future markets, growth factors and details of cells and modules shipments for 2011, 2012 and 2017. This study will be of interest to those who manufacture solar cells, modules, inverters, racking mounts, tracking systems, polysilicon and interconnection materials, as well as those involved in the sale and distribution of concentrated photovoltaic systems and building integrated photovoltaic systems. It will also be of interest to those companies engaged in nanotechnology and materials for flexible substrates.

In addition, utility companies, construction firms, regulators, legislators and policy advocates will find its contents to be of value.

Not covered in this report are subsectors that are unquestionably a part of solar power but do not use photovoltaics, such as concentrating solar thermal systems, solar water heaters and the like.
The scope of this study encompasses the major PV technologies: monocrystalline silicon, multicrystalline silicon, thin films (e.g., amorphous silicon, cadmium telluride, copper indium diselenide), compound semiconductor materials (e.g., gallium arsenide) and emerging approaches such as nanostructured films, dye- sensitized solar cells and organic technologies. BCC Research analyzes each technology, examines its current and potential efficiency, assesses the current market status of each, examines its future market impact and presents shipments of PV cells and their values for 2011, 2012 and 2017.

Various technical issues are discussed and a thorough economic analysis of each technology and its impact on future growth is presented. We also look at polysilicon, building integrated photovoltaic markets (BIPV) and concentrated photovoltaics (CPV) at a higher level with the goal of helping readers understand their relationship to the PV market.

In this report, we analyze the PV industry on a global basis, including manufacturing capacity and consumption by various regional markets. We examine government funding and support, industry involvement, standards, the environmental impact of solar energy and the impact of incentives to use PV. We also discuss the potential for applications—both grid-connected and standalone. Projections of cell and module shipments by major applications are also presented for the five years covered in our study.
