Global Solar Photovoltaic Installations-2014 Market Report

DUBLIN, IRELAND -- (Marketwired) -- 07/02/14 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/48c796/solar) has announced the addition of the "Global Solar Photovoltaic Installations - 2014 Market Report " report to their offering.

This 684 page global market report includes 424 charts (includes a data table and graphical representation for each chart), supported with meaningful and easy to understand graphical presentation, of market numbers. This report profiles 30 key global players and 45 major players across North America - 6; Europe - 7; and Asia-Pacific - 32. The research also provides the listing of the companies engaged in manufacturing and supply of solar photovoltaics. The global list of companies covers addresses, contact numbers and the website addresses of 173 companies.

The report reviews, analyses and projects the PV installations market for global and the regional markets including North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of World. The regional markets further analyzed for 26 independent countries across North America - The United States, Canada and Mexico; Europe - Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom; Asia-Pacific - Australia, China, India, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand; and Rest of World - Brazil, Israel and South Africa.

Global cumulative operating capacity of solar Photovoltaic (PV) installations crossed over 135 GW in 2013, driven primarily by Europe and significant late-year additions in Asia-Pacific. Declining prices has led to solar PV's expansion in new markets, ranging from Africa and the Middle East region to Asia and Latin America. The year also witnessed growing interest in community-owned and self-generated PV systems, with the number and scale of large PV projected also going up. High levels of competition and declining prices and margins left PV cell and module manufacturers in a precarious position, leading to greater industry consolidation and shutting shop for a number of manufacturers in China, Europe and the United States.

In the wake of a slowdown in traditional European markets, declining PV prices has facilitated competition in newer markets across the world, with Namibia and South Africa being two such regions where large-scale solar parks were brought online in 2012. Seizing the opportunity, Chinese companies initiated construction of projects in at least 20 African countries with the goal of bolstering demand for exports from the country.

The prominent solar PV technologies market explored in this report comprise Crystalline Silicon (c-Si) and Thin Films. These PV technologies further classified as Crystalline Silicon (c-Si) - Monocrystalline Silicon (Mono-c-Si) and Multicrystalline Silicon (Multi-c-Si); and Thin Films - Cadmium Telluride (CdTe), Amorphous Silicon (a-Si) and Copper Indium Gallium Selenide (CIGS). The global market for Photovoltaics is analyzed in this study in terms of megawatts for annual and cumulative installations.
