Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Supply Chain - Global Market Size to 2015

From an emerging fuel source 20 years ago, the availability of more effective and reliable equipment and machinery has enabled solar PV to be transformed into a commercial energy generating technology in over forty countries. The global solar PV market is expanding rapidly with PV installations growing by 57% in 2010 over 2009.

Global solar PV installed capacity increased at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 40.1% from 1,761 MW (megawatts) in 2001 to 36,712 MW in 2010, of which 13.3 GW is expected to be added in 2010.

The demand supply scenario of PV equipment has changed in the past 10 years. The PV equipment industry was a "sellers market" from 2006-2008, however there will be a shift in trend with supply exceeding demand resulting in a further reduction in prices of PV equipment.
